Wah! Singapolean oso want to teach Indonesians Ingliss ah?

Unspun, who hates spam, was spammed today from a Singapore training outfit Fortress Intelligence. The spam, sent by one Hadijah Sahid offered an opportunity for me to “improve” my business English.

Ever one to seek improvement Unspun perused the spam but after reading the first two paragraphs decied that maybe Unspun should offer Hadijah and Fortress not only lessons to improve their Business English but also to acquire some Netiquette and to go easy on the chutzpah. Here’s the first two paragraphs of the offering. Read and know what audacity is all about:
