Yeah I agree with you Shahbaz...
I also want to add a point here that their is a difference between written and spoken english...I consider written english as a skill which we must practice, spoken english depends upon your enviornment, the people with whom you interact and ofcourse your schooling.

The main reason is ofcourse schooling, alot of CAs and ACMAs or for that matter other professionals may not have an english medium schooling background. Having said that the standard of education on a general level is quite appalling, including some of the more expensive private schools in Pakistan.

Needless to say that student's level of English is directly proportional to that of their teachers, so we are in more of a vicious circle here.

Mani is right on the spoken and written front. However, I do find that most CAs and CMAs (that is once they qualify) make no ammends or efforts to improve upon their writting skills. I have had the experience of working with a lot of accountants from across the world and have nothing encouraging to report there. Most people find it quite difficult to construct a string of words into some thing logical. This is true for people coming from English speaking countries as well. The response that I usually get is that an accountant is'nt supposed to be a person expert in languages ! for that you have journalists and other humanities graduates. (This is what I got from an accountant educated and trained at a Big4 in the UK)

Among Pakistani accountants I see a major reason being a general lack of reading. So it boils down to this. Accountants not only have poor language skills but are also ignorant of what goes around. Exceptions withstanding !

i fully agree with pracs and would like to add soemthing. english is necessary for good communication skills and pakistanis sure do lack that...as far as CA's are concerned they come from a variety of schools and most of them doesnt get the previlage of studying in hi-fi private schools offering O and A levels( or even good quality matric and inter as a matter of fact)so u really cant expect much of them.....however,there is always room for improvement...the draw back they suffer is that even after doing there inter they dont get a chance to study in a full fledge university where their personality could be groomed. studying in tabannis or cams is just like going to a commercialized tution centre( and they dont have any other option do they?).
they are hardworking and studious but should concentrate on their communication skills aswell. i heard that these days ca's are being introduced to presentations and all that stuff which is good.remember techanical skills without good communcation skills can hamper ur growth. gone are the days when BA's use to get induct in banks and are heading them these days. u really need to be competent.

and for shahbaz most probably u r a ca student.dont get pissed off and instead wasting ur time by criticizing spelling errors u should accept the reality and try to do something about it.zee_cma's english may not be good but he sure did raised a valid point.

are you ppl talking about ca students or those professionals?..if thats students you're talking about, then you may find it in any field...if you're talking about professionals....they are far ahead than anyone....specially in our field it is important...and in written communication..ca's are on top....
this topic is debateable....both sides may have examples....its not very strict...
over'n'out!
