Tema; bahasa asing sebagai pendukung penguasaan teknologi untuk mewujudkan entrepreneurship society.
(Pidato ini saya buat untuk disampaikan dalam Speech Contest Event di Jombang tingkat SMA se-sederajat oleh saudara Rizal, dan menjuarai juara 2)
Assalamualaikum wr. wb.
First, let us convey praise and gratitude for the presence of Allah SWT who gives us rahmat and nikmat that we can gather in this blessed place. Blessing and greeting we devote to our messenger Muhammad SAW, hopefully with this event, may we become useful ummah for region and religion. Amin ya rabbal alamin.
Secondly, I’d like to thank all committees for holding this great event and all participants for being pleasure to listen to my speech today.
In this opportunity, I’d like to deliver some words entitled ‘Technopreneurship speaks English’.
Let me tell you what technopreneurship is.
Technopreneurship is a development of entrepreneurship that combines two words; technology and entrepreneurship, that means a business that is built by individual or group of people to accomplish a goal based on technology.
With technology, we can make a shortcut way to actualize entrepreneurship society. It means it won’t spend too much time and will be more efficient.
As we know with the existence of AEC (ASEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY) in the end of year 2015, the economic competition among countries in ASEAN will get more dynamic and competitive. It is not only in economy but also in free market era; todays, technology determines what behavior should be taken to increase entrepreneurship power for society.
The existence of free market that’s been in front of our eyes insists everyone to prepare power resources specially in entrepreneurship.
Ladies and gentlemen.
We have to utilize technology for what we do need nowadays. For example; in economy, we know e-commerce has born, what is it for? Indonesia just got started for this than the other countries, but the development of e-commerce in Indonesia grows fast with number of Internet user that grows every year, we must not miss this opportunity. In Farming, lately it’s been top things talked in Indonesia that Indonesia still does import food resource from the other countries, so why does it happen? Indonesia has a large area to farm, doesn’t it? I guess Indonesia needs something like agrotechnology to solve these all.
So, what is the way to jump higher? Aren’t we tired of getting behind? We should know what is in front of us, whom we’re facing to, and what to prepare for surviving.
Here we go, all we need to do is how we communicate with everyone around the world without limit of language. We can learn from the other countries that determine technology as the main priority to change everything.
Thus, how to possess the technology?
One way supporting to this point is knowing their language. By speaking like to whom we speak, actually it will help us to understand how they build the technology and how it works.
We know we don’t have enough time to understand all of their languages. So why don’t we use a bridge to connect with every nation? What’s the bridge? It’s English.
English is by far the world’s most studied language and natively spoken by 20 percent of the earth’s population.
For actualizing entrepreneurship society, we have reason why we should learn foreign language; especially English. Most of technology design is built up with a programming language which is most transformed from English.
This is why we should learn to speak foreign language as how technopreneurship speaks English.
That is what I can share for today. May Allah bless us.
