English in Kuala Lumpur: Kuala Lumpur, the Garden City of Lights

Ranked 11th among cities with the strongest economic influence in the World, Kuala Lumpur is the capital city of Malaysia, known by many as the city with the fastest modernisation of all times. It is widely recognised for its staple skyscraper, KLCC, a twin tower stretching 88 floors upwards, one tower built by a Japanese company whilst another built by the Korean. This twin tower hence has the deep purpose of signifying the relationship of the nation between these two countries, as well as between Japan and Korea themselves who by history were clashing for centuries.

How English arrives to Malaysia

The arrival of the British in Malaysia was back in the year 1786 a settlement was established in Penang by Sir Francis Light. Development to make a free port is done to compete with the Dutch that’s controlling Malacca at the time. Formally, the British made Malaysia their colony in the year 1867.

Ever since, English-medium schools were established alongside Tamil, Chinese and Malay schools. In 1957, it was reported that around 6% of the population were literate in the language. During the time, English was the dominant language for Non-European elites.

In 1967, English was no longer considered to be the official language of the nation but instead, Malay. Nonetheless, English is still retained as the compulsory second language. In 1969, it was decided that all English-medium schools were to become Malay-medium.

English in a Malaysian Life

Most Malaysians these days can speak English and understand it, however in a calculated sense, English speakers make up around 60% of the total population. Throughout Malaysia, English is most commonly spoken in major cities like Kuala Lumpur and Penang and lesser in rural areas.

Meanwhile, the distribution by age shows that younger people tend to have a higher English proficiency compared to the older ones. As for job sectors, those with professional jobs would have a good level of English skill, especially international companies. Hotels and restaurants in urban centres are most likely to have personnel equipped with fluent English.

The type of English that Malaysians speak is called Malaysian English, studied closely to British English but spoken with a Malaysian touch in it. Malaysian English as it is today is most influenced by Chinese Malaysian, who by history are more likely to own a business during the colonial days compared to other races. Hence, the phonetics is more similar to that of Chinese, however, as time goes by, other cultural aspects are integrated into it, making it a unique slang that can only be found in this region. In Malaysia, mixing a total of three to four languages in a phrase is a totally normal thing to do! After all, there are a total of 137 languages, dialects and indigenous sub dialects throughout the nation.

What is the importance of English?

Knowing English does not only help you get by within the country, but also overseas. Having the ability to converse and write in English opens up doors to new opportunities, such as more job options and job security. Other than that, English is the International Language of Communication. It is not the most spoken language in the World, but it is a language spoken by around 400 million people. That is a massive number to put it into consideration.

Nowadays, most learning and entertainment materials are published in English. Aside from that, it is also the language of the internet, used in around half the world’s most visited websites. Hence, learning this language will give you the privilege of these materials. May it be for fun or for work purposes, you’ll be able to better interpret the information that is read, perhaps even get acquainted with English speakers from overseas. A new bond is able to be forged from this.

Last but not least, English eases the process of travelling. As English is the spoken language in more than 171 countries (first language in 53 countries and second language in over 118 countries), it makes it easier for you to travel anywhere that you want. Many countries also opt for their hospitality industry workers to be proficient in English, aside from having signboards and signs available in English.
