Director of Educational Development, Alister Bartholomew highlights the need of raising the level of English proficiency among Malaysians:

 

As we approach National Day, it is always a good time to reflect on the achievements in this wonderful country. Whilst there is much to celebrate, it is vital to focus on the importance of Education in the country and how this is key in so many ways to the future prosperity of Malaysia.

I recently read an article in the News Straits Times (NST) recently titled ‘Rethink, Revamp Teaching and Learning of English’ which emphasises the importance of improving the quality of English proficiency among Malaysians as stated in the Education Blueprint.

In a nutshell, the education blueprint accepts that the level of English in Malaysia is not sufficient to succeed as a nation in a globalised world that requires English for international communications of all kinds. As such, there is need for reform at all levels of Education.

In keeping with the new ‘English Language Road Map Initiative’, we at ILTI can play a huge role in providing excellent tuition and guidance to help complement the English classes in schools or to support older students and adults who are lacking confidence or need to improve.

ILTI has a rich heritage in Ipoh as the first choice Language school; and with our experienced teachers, our students are in safe hands. Our recent examination results proofed our standards are continually improving and we are definitely proud of our students’ achievements.

We are aiming to broaden our educational programmes for adults and diversify new opportunities for Business English to serve the local community. So, whatever your age and interests, do drop by ILTI to discuss how we can support you. ILTI is a life changing experience!

教育发展总监强调了提高马来西亚人英语水平的需要

随着国庆节的临近,这是对这个美好国家所取得的成就进行反思的好时机。尽管有着许多值得庆祝的事情,别忘了关注于教育的重要性,这是对马来西亚的未来繁荣是非常重要的。

《新海峡时报》最近一篇题为《反思,改进英语教学和学习》的文章强调了要按照以国际公认标准为基准的“马来西亚教育蓝图”来提高英语水平。

简而言之,该蓝图承认了马来西亚的英语水平不足以在现时需要以英语进行各种国际沟通的全球化世界中取得成功。因此,各级教育都有改革的需要。

根据新的“循序渐进英语学习之旅”,我们在ILTI可以在提高优质的教育方面发挥巨大的作用,以帮助补充学校的英语课程和支持寻求提高语言能力的成年人。

ILTI既是语言学校的首选在怡保有着丰富的底蕴;而学生在经验丰富的教师的领导下也能得到正规的教学。我们最近的考试成绩证明了我们的水平正不断地提高,我们也为学生的成就感到骄傲。

我们的目标为扩大为成人而设的教育课程及发展更多样化的商务英语以帮助本地社区的民众。因此,不管你的年龄及兴趣是什么,请到访我们中心并讨论我们可以如何支持你。ILTI是改变生活的体验!
