English class for kids. Part time English course in Malaysia.

One of the most beautiful cities in Malaysia, Kota Kinabalu holds many beauties of nature. You can find picturesque mountain views, witness serene clear waters of the sea and feel the gentle breeze from between the greenery of the capital of Sabah.

This beautiful, multicultural state known as Land Below the Wind hears many languages spoken in daily conversation: The many dialects of different Sabahan tribes, Bahasa Melayu, Chinese of different dialects (Hakka, Mandarin and Cantonese), Tamil and of course, the globally spoken language of English.

Generally speaking, while English is used widely in Malaysia as a second language, the number of Malaysian citizens who are unable to speak nor understand the language very well is still quite high. Especially in more rural areas, where Sabah is known to have quite a number of.

However, there is no need to keep the inability to speak in an internationally recognised language.

How can I start learning ESOL?

There are many ways one can start learning a new language. While most people would claim that English is one of the hardest languages to learn due to its many grammatical rules and linguistic mechanisms, it is not impossible to pick it up in no time.

For beginners, familiarise yourself with listening to the English language daily. It can be in any form: conversational, through television or the radio, tuning in to podcasts or by watching a movie. Listening to English will allow you to widen your vocabulary alongside exposing you to the correct pronunciations of certain words. 

If you familiarise yourself with listening to accented English (American, British, Scottish, etc.), it is without a doubt you will be able to pick up the accent yourself.

For those who prefer poring through a book rather than spending their time consuming materials from the media such as podcasts or films, reading English books is a method to consider. For starters, you can start by reading children’s novels to pace yourself before moving on to more advanced novels. Additionally, you should also take advantage of reading signs that are written in English.

Whether in reading or writing, it is best to write down new words and attempt to create sentences with the words you have written. This is one of the best ways to understand sentence usage and context. Furthermore, in writing down new words, you will also learn the definition of said words thus further increasing your vocabulary.

Next, the best method to getting used to the English language is to speak the language. While beginners may lack confidence to speak for fear of saying the wrong things, learning from mistakes is the best way to learn and retain the knowledge you have picked up. As time goes on, you will find yourself more used to speaking in English and making fewer mistakes.

Once you start having a hold of a second language, you may want to improve it. So, how do you go about doing so?

How can I improve my ESOL skills?

Learning is a never  ending process. Once you get a grasp of English proficiency, the next step would be figuring out how to improve said proficiency.

There are many skills to perfect and/or master in the English language such as the big four: listening, speaking, reading and writing.

English is spoken in many accents across the globe and it can be hard to decipher what is being said when we are unfamiliar with the accent. However, with strong listening skills, it is easier to make heads or tails of the conversation. To improve listening skills with ESOL, practice active listening. While the speaker is delivering their message across, try not to think of a reply right that second. Instead, focus solely on what is being conversed.

What is the cost to study ESOL?

The cost to study ESOL depends on the studying methods that you choose. There are different study methods for each person. For instance, individual A may prefer to study independently while individual B may choose to study in a friend group. Meanwhile, you may prefer to study with a tutor. 

Of course, each study method will cost a sum; whether big or small as you may need to buy textbooks, practice books, stationeries to study with and so forth.

The cost to studying ESOL also depends if you are enrolling into any tuition centres, specifically for ESOL lessons. However, due to the current endemic situation, most tuition centres are not holding physical classes as a safety measure thus classes are viably held online.

Some students may be keen on the idea of online class, but may not be so intrigued when having to do so with 10 other students in the class. Thus, here at Superprof, we offer our students a chance to learn online (or face-to-face, if they want to!) with a private tutor they can easily hire from our own website.
