As a part of scientific research activities,The third scientific seminar in the department of Computer Science and Intensive English Program has been held where three researches have presented as follows: 1-Teachers’ and Students’ Attitudes towards L1 Use in EFL Classrooms in the Contexts of Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia The role of a mother tongue (L1) in the teaching and learning of a foreign language (FL) has been the subject of much debate and controversy. This paper reports on a piece of research carried out in our own teaching environments (at universities both in Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia) and presents an analysis of the attitudes of students and teachers towards the use of learners’ mother tongue (in this case Bengali and Arabic) in English language classrooms at the tertiary level where English is taught as a non-major subject. For the study, two surveys with the same questionnaires were conducted in two universities each from Bangladesh and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) with the participation of 1000 students and 30 teachers. Results suggest that a judicious and moderate use of L1 does not hinder learning; rather, it assists, aids and facilitates the teaching and learning process thus providing the teacher with an effective pedagogical tool for maximizing the learning outcome. 2- ASPECTS OF FEMINIST WRITING A PRESENTATION OF COMMON ISSUSES ABSTRACT –Feminism emerged as an important force in the Western World in 1960s when women realized the attitude of their male colleagues who swore about equality, was actually the strategy used by them to keep women subservient, then a revolution by women to fight against them, and against racism and sexism was felt. This awakening spread over and as a result feminist criticism emerged on as an off –shoot of women’s Liberation Movement. Beginning with the interrogation of male-centric literature that portrayed women in a demeaning and oppressed model, theorist such as Marry Ellman, Kate Millet and Germaine Greer challenged past imaginations of the feminine within literary scholarship. It is very important for us to know that who these women writers are, what did they write and what were the sources of their writings. The present paper in its context talks about some female writers, the feminist view of discussion in their writings and their place in literary writings either they are written by male writers and female writers. The paper focuses on some of the above said important aspects of feminist writings and some of famous feminist writers also.  
Our dear students -- the future of this nation and the backbone of our country -- you are our hope and our dreams. Those that believe in success do not believe in giving in to the obstacles and challenges faced through life. During these critical days, educational institutions around the Kingdom will commence the final exam period. This time of the year brings the necessity for hard work to attain optimal learning objectives. As a result, many students complain that they are not able to study and suffer stress and anxiety which prevents them from achieving their desired goals.moor

It included three researches which were presented as follows: First research: Title: Promotion of Banking Services in Sudanese Banks / Case Study of Al Baraka Bank Khartoum Prepared by: Masha’r Hussein Khalifa Main Ideas: 1. Detecting the types of promotional means directed to customers. 2. Distinguishing the efficiency of employees in dealing with customers to sell the distinctive banking service. 3. Measuring the satisfaction of the client and the extent it has been achieved through promotional programs by the bank. Research Hypotheses: 1.

Achieving customer satisfaction by providing an outstanding banking service leads to profitability. 3. Promotion leads to increasing the effectiveness of the banking services. 4. Identifying the target audience when developing the promotional strategy at the bank increases the effectiveness of promotion. Second Research: Title: The impact of MIS on the performance of workers in business establishments. An applied study on the implementation of dams in Khartoum from 2005-2007. Prepared by: Dr. Maram Ahmad Ali Al Tayeb Main Ideas: 1. The theoretical framework of management information systems 2. Administrative performance in the dam implementation unit 3. Case Study Third Research: Title: Effect of the banking system in Sudan on savings (Case study on Faisal Islamic Bank of Sudan) (1996-2005) Main Ideas: Identifying ways to attract saving deposits and studying the policies and financial procedures that affect deposits and finding out the causes of cash leakage. The study discusses the effect of the Sudanese banking system on saving. A case study on Faisal Islamic Bank of Sudan from (1996-2005). The research discusses the problem of poor saving deposits in the Third World and studying the policies and financial procedures that affect the savings deposits. The problem of research is that the Third World countries suffer from weakness in domestic saving deposits, and that most of them are outside the banking system. Is this due to a relationship between saving deposits, bank defaults, and saving deposits? Is there a relationship between the currency in the public and the saving deposits? The study came up with several results, the most important of which is that the Sudanese banks, that follow the Islamic Sharia’a do not only serve Muslims in the homeland or other Islamic countries, but also provides a message of guidance for humanity regarding the role of Islam. Thus, the goal of attracting savings is not to profit under the Islamic system but to achieve economic and social development.  The relative importance of the Central Bank deposits item increased during the period from 1999 to 2002, in contrast to the period 1996-1999, where the contribution of other items was higher than the contribution of deposits in the structure of the use of the resources of the banking system
