					@ Do you think it difficult to fill out a form
in English? Why or why not?
 @ Do you think it difficult to fill out a form
  in English? Why or why not?
     (1) Yes. The main problem is that I am not
good at English at all. So it is not easy for me to
figure out how to fill out an English form correctly.
     (2) I don't think it difficult to fill out a form in
English. At least, I can read English and I can turn
to someone for help. If I try to follow the directions
carefully, step by step, most of the time I don't
have problems dealing with English forms.
 @ Do you think it is important to learn how
to fill out forms in English? Why or why not?
 @ Do you think it is important to learn how
to fill out forms in English? Why or why not?
     (1) Yes. Since we are citizens of a global
village, we have to fill out many forms in
English.
     (2) I don't think it's important to learn
how to fill out forms in English. If, instead of
traveling around, we stay where we belong, it
just won't be a problem. Furthermore, travel
agents can help customers to fill out any
forms that are needed, so there aren't any
problems for those who don't know English
well. Learning how to fill out forms in
English is not essential.
       As a citizen of the modern global
village, you will probably have to fill out
many English-language forms during your
lifetime. If you want to visit another country,
for example, you may need to
fill out a visa application form. When
you arrive in that country, you will fill out a
customs declaration form. If you want to
buy something from a mail-order company,
you have to fill out an order form.
      If you apply for a job at a foreign
company, you will be required to fill out an
employment application form. If you
want to study in an English-speaking
country, you will have to fill out a
school admission form. Also, when
you arrive, you may want to open up a bank
account, subscribe to a newspaper, or
register at the campus health clinic —
all of which require you to fill out forms.
      Whenever you fill out a form, be sure
to read the directions carefully. Be sure
you understand what each space is asking
for and where you are supposed to fill in
the information. Many Chinese, for
example, may write their “first name”
in the space for “last name” because
they don’t know that in English “last
name” means family name or surname.
      Some Chinese also write “black” in
the space for “color of eyes,” when in fact
their eyes are brown. One of our friends
once surprised her American boss
because she wrote “yellow” in the
space for “race.” She did not know
that “yellow” is an old-fashioned and
offensive word for describing Oriental
people. The right word to use is “Asian.”
        Every time you fill out a form, you
should also be consistent. For example,
you should always use the same English
spelling for your name and address.
Finally, but most important of all, be sure
to fill in all the spaces clearly.
Except for your signature,
never use longhand; always
print the information.
     The layout of forms changes
according to the purpose they serve.

form and a membership application
form. Do you know how to fill them
out?

 you to provide various types of information. An
 order form from a mail order company will be very
