In the name of Allah, the Beneficent and the Merciful.
Assalamualaikum wr wb.

Before I am going to deliver the main point of my speech, let me introduce myself; my name is Tika Safitri. I came from publishing trimester two. I would like to say thank you very much for the MC; Yudi and Diah. Also for the juries who have given me opportunity to deliver this English speech. And with all due respect to the honorable judges representing, to all of the lectures here attending, and to all of the audiences, including my friends who participates in this speech contest,  good afternoon everyone!

Ladies and Gentlemen;
Indeed, it is a very great honor for me to have chance standing here in front of you and give a brief speech under the title of
The Importance Of English Fluency In The Creative Industries

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Language plays an important role in human life. One tries to acquire, learn and use language as a means of communication, and simultaneously as social symbol of humanity. By using language someone could make statements, convey facts and knowledge, to explain or report something, and keep social relations among the language users. These indicate that by means of language, people can express their ideas, feeling, and information through communication.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
As one of languages in the world, English is considered and applied as international language. Since then, it is very popular and has been spoken and learnt by almost people in the world. There are some reasons why English is important and many people attempt to learn it. Some of them are: for finding job, traveling, interacting to each others, doing business, taking examination, doing research, writing in foreign language, and what we should emphasize—as students of Polytechnic Creative—is the Creative Industries themselves. Because for any Industries, English is an important indicator of whether or not someone could join/receieved one of the industries.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
Ladies and Gentlemen,
In such developing country like Indonesia, English has a vital role in all aspects of life, particularly in the creative industries, the place where the most graduated student of State Polytechnic of Creative Media will be placed to.  Furthermore, it can be used for developing relationships in the international forum, tighten the relationship among nations in the world, and so on. Looking at the above important roles of English, that is why English is very important to understand and to master by every people throughout the world since before.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
At the end of my speech, I will quote a wise expression: “ENGLISH WILL MAKE EVERYBODY SURVIVE AND GO ANYWHERE”. This expression reminds us how importance of English for human life is. As global or universal language, English is not only enables us to communicate and interact with every people throughout the world, but also it could alter our life to be better. Furthermore, we also must be aware that the western countries play extra ordinary role in developing and keeping science, technology, and industry. Thus, if we want to be a skillful scientists, linguists, creative and be able to compete with the other countries in the world, we must understand, master and learn the language they use, namely English.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Before ending this speech, let me conclude the essential points of my speech:
1. English is highly necessary to be learned and mastered by everyone, in order to be able to compete in the globalization era;
2. English is a key to open and master creativity, really possible that it comes in contact with colleagues from abroad because most of the investor only accepts vacancy that could speak English quiet well, in order to be able to work on a group easily.
3. By mastering English enables us to become survive and go anywhere throughout the world;
Goethe (a Greek philosopher) has ever said:
“Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do”
Remember: Language indicates Nation. And Don’t Forget “English is a bridge for the future”

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I think it’s completely enough for me to this point. The wrong utterances are caused by limitation of my ability and the right one is merely from Allah SWT. So, I beg your pardon, finally I say.
Wassalamu’alaikum Warohmatullohi Wabarokatuh
