Thesis:

Doing my PhD in sociolinguistics, especially investigating "The linguistic features of cyber language used in Saudi synchronous online chatting: A closer look at age, gender and educational level" with Dr Robert McKenzie, would offer me an invaluable opportunity to expand my knowledge of a subject about which I am so enthusiastic. I believe that such a degree would prepare me for my future career as a lecture in sociolinguistics and would prove to be enriching both academically and personally.
