Welcome to HCT Muscat Sucks!

Those who can, do; those who can't, teach; those who can't teach work in the ELC at HCT Muscat.

This website is dedicated to the (sick) joke of an 'educational' institution otherwise known as HCT Muscat, with a primary, though by no means exclusive, focus on the 'English' Language Center. Scare quotes are employed here as the vast majority of the so-called 'teachers' (laughingly referred to as 'lecturers' in inner HCT circles, though most people would simply call them clowns, jesters, losers, and no-hopers) at the ELC speak Urdu, Punjab, Tamil, Hindi, Tagalog, and Arabic as their mother tongue, and (a somewhat peculiar and convoluted form of) English only as a second, other language (and it shows).

The ELC building itself is jerry-built and the programs and courses which are run out of it are ill-managed by under-qualified – and sometimes totally unqualified – amateurs. The whole place is, in short, an absolute joke and a pathetic excuse of a language center.

This, however, is exactly what one should arguably expect from any institution in the Sultanate of Oman. After all, this is the country which, to its utter shame, has just recently granted political asylum to members of Muammar Gaddafi's family, two of whom are actually wanted by Interpol.


As always, Arabic takes precedence over English, even at the 'English' Language Center!
