Overview - English Tuition Malaysia
English being the sole medium of instruction in all schools across Malaysia makes it essential for students to be well versed with the language form the beginning. And, when we say well versed with English, we’re talking about Standard English, which is the most widely understood form of the language.
The importance of English in daily life
English is arguably one of the most important subject in Malaysia because it is the medium of communication of education. Many students struggle in other topics, such as Math and Science due to their weak foundation in English language. Moreover, being well versed in the English language will not only help your child in academically, but will be beneficial for a lifetime since better communication with their peers will ultimately lead to better options and aspects of their work as well as social lives.
Especially for students more inclined towards Arts and Humanities, e.g. Economics, Literature, History, having a strong command of the English language will give them a huge advantage in scoring in these areas.
Looking forward, should your child make it to UK College, they will have to take lessons from a Native English teachers and all communications will be in English with peers and professors. It will be hard if the student doesn’t have sound skills of English language in all 4 areas of English language which is Speaking, Listening, Reading & Writing. Thus, if your child is not adept in English grammar or vocabulary, it is highly recommended to consider engaging an English tutor, especially when your child is still young, and mistakes are easier to correct as compared to later in life.
While the use of English in written communication is key, its use in oral communication is equally important, especially in universities where a bulk of your grade comes from presentation after presentation. It is undeniable that the use of technology has hindered oral communication in one way or another, especially in public speaking. Grasping the skill of public speaking is crucial as it comes with many benefits, such as boosting one’s self confidence and allowing one to distinguish him/herself from the rest of the crowd.
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is an English language proficiency test, aimed to assess the candidates’ ability to study or work in countries where English is used as a dominant language. There are four parts to IELTS – Reading, Listening, Speaking, and Writing. Each component is graded based on a nine-band scale, and an overall band score is generated based on the average. IELTS is recognised worldwide, and is ideal for students looking to enroll in top universities around the world.
As the name suggests, the Malaysian University English Test (MUET) is an English proficiency test intended for Malaysian students. Similar to the IELTS, MUET also has four components, namely Reading, Listening, Writing, and Speaking. While it used to be a requirement for students sitting for STPM and students attending local universities, most private universities are now accepting MUET as an entry requirement. Compared to IELTS, MUET is considerable more affordable, but IELTS is more widely accepted among universities.
