- My Dear Vance, Sus and webhead fellows
It's a hounor for me to received a prompt response from Sus and Vance on
my openion. It's my pleasure to introduce myself once agian for our new
colleages as per Sus suggestion.
Infact I'm a research scientist in the filed of chemistry and doing
research from last 5 years. Being a pakistani our medium of instruction
is english in university. But in school level we have two differetn kind
of school system, some school offered english as medium of intruction
while some national language so called "Urdu". I belong to second
catagery of school so upto school level we use english as a subject so
in english we are only able to carry on our own subject. After joining
Uni. english become my language of instruction but you can say its my
personaly fault I never put my realy efforts to improve my english as my
english is good enough to carry on my study. Particularly after joining
a research gruop to do Ph.D I put my maximum efforts on my reserach so I
can finished my Ph.D in min time period.

my field that is chemistry, while I was well convence that my english is
in very bad position but I always convence my self that it's not a

english lang contry.
Its my hard luck I can't get any chance to do so, while during my Ph.D I
got chance several time to visit Germany but I never accept it only due
Last year on March one Prof from Inssbruck university visited our
institute in karachi while we were arranging a internationla conference
for chemistry. In this conference I present my work as poster and
luckily or by mistake I was selected the winner of this poster
competetion (out of 60 poster presested internationaly). So Prof. from
Innsbruck Uni. offered during closing ceremony of this conferece that "
I wish to offer to winner of this poster sation to visit my lab and do
post doc wiht me". So finally I accept this proposal as Its a very good
offer for me to do post doc without westage of my time. I finished my
Ph.D on 10th of June and fly for Innsbruck on 14 th of June.
This is my whloe story, so my english is remain in very bad situation
and I'm facing another language problem in Austria that is
Finally I joint this group and was very impressed with the job of Vance,
Sus and some more teacher as they are playing very nice job here. I'm

I hope you will pardon me as this long and meaning less mail bohter you

- Hi Zaheer
Your English is getting better and even though you make mistakes I
think most all of the Webheads understand you.
If you would like help with German ask me. Also I can give you some
sites that you can find German words in English. Send me a private
email for that.
Have a nice weekend!
