Improve on English or lose out in job market, undergrads told
There's one article on theStar regarding the undergrads and getting a job . This is the current scenario . And even I'm experiencing this , most of the students wants to be taught in Bahasa Malaysia . It's not that I'm not patriotic much when I'm saying this , but we Malaysian have to start to google ahead .
In order to move forward , mastering the international language is a MUST . Why ? Becaue the Americans don't understand Bahasa Malaysia except Belacan dan Paku . Okayy , let's take it this way , most people said English is a very tough language , but how do you know if you never try ? BM is not easy either , did you score +A if you say Bahasa Malaysia is a piece of cake ?
I just dont understand lah , you said English is hard , but you can understand twitter manuals , facebook , your blackberry manuals and menu . You can even pronounce and use simple words of English . All you need is a little effort in looking up to the dictionary and be patient and NEVER give up . But well , we are famous for our "Hangat hangat tahi ayam" attitude .
I pity Malaysians , if like this ah I bet we can't go further . Dont ever dream of going international , because we never can . International people don't speak our language you see .
Okayy lah , bragging pun tak guna . Malaysians won't change their mind , but just take China for example , when they are so eager to host the great sport games in their country , they took up English class . For what ? So that it's easier to communicate and could help them go one step ahead . Malaysians malaysians , will always be malaysians .
