A lot of students I talked to are good in the Mandarin language but find it difficult to talk or write in English. Some cannot

even carry a simple conversation in English. With the USA as the no. 1 economy in the world and China no. 2, students who are good in both Mandarin and English have an excellent advantage and opportunity to go far.

However, the students that I spoke to preferred to take the easy way out of going to cheaper colleges or university where the students from these universities spoke mostly Mandarin. How are you going to improve your English if everyone in your class, hostel, and around you constantly speak in Mandarin?

You can enjoy an easier life with cheaper fees and less stress for the 4 years of education but for the next 50 years of your work life, you may suffer because you will not be able to get a higher salary or promotion because you cannot communicate well.

Some students from Ipoh chose to go a university in Kampar because it is nearer to home and cheaper. I have nothing against that university, it is just that I hope you can improve your English and get a better future only.

It is better to take the PTPN Loan, and your whole family work together and sacrifice for the 4 years of education and then you can

earn a higher salary with faster promotions for the next 50 years of your career.

When I tell students that English is important, most agree and some even say that they will improve their English while studying in Kampar, and sadly most of them graduate not having done anything about it.

Don’t take my word for it, please find below the articles taken from Star Online on their research showing that graduates with a good command of the English language can earn higher salaries up to 25% more and get promoted faster.

Representatives from Employment Agencies also share their views saying that a lot of Multi National Companies look for graduates who can communicate well.

Study Shows Link Between Good English and Higher Salary in Malaysia

According to a report in Star newspaper on August 5, 2012

A survey carried out over a two-year period shows there is a link between English proficiency and a country’s national income.

A STUDY has found a correlation between English proficiency and a country’s gross national income. Countries with higher income per capita tend to be more proficient in the English language, based on the findings of international education company Education First (EF), using a standardised measurement for adult English proficiency.

The EF English Proficiency Index (EF EPI) is based on the results of a 2007 to 2009 survey covering more than two million people in over 40 countries.

English skills and income levels correlate in a “virtuous” cycle where greater proficiency in the language leads to higher income.

The gross national income per capita for countries which scored over 60 in the EF EPI was more than US$40,000 (RM120,000) in 2008.

In another research, as reported in Star on June 13, 2012, A study by research organisation Euromonitor International for the British Council states that the learning of the English language could increase the earning power of individuals in developing countries by approximately 25%.

Professional recruitment consultancy Robert Walters Malaysia country manager, Sally Raj, said English language proficiency could increase personal earning power.

“This is particularly true for professionals within a client-facing role where communication skills are vital, good English skills will help them articulate and sell their ideas better. It will also aid them in working in a multinational corporation, where they need to communicate with various nationalities,” she said.

She also agreed that higher English language proficiency would help attract and increase foreign direct investment (FDI) into Malaysia.

“Most foreign multinationals look for professionals who they are able to train for the role, meaning that higher English language proficiency would be one of the key factors that would draw them to Malaysia,” she said.

Manpower Staffing Services (M) Sdn Bhd country manager, Sam Haggag, said it was widely recognised that fluency in the English language was a prerequisite to getting a job.

“Employees with good English communication skills tend to be more confident and thus representing the organisation better, putting the organisation in a positive light. Therefore, these employees are able to gain higher positions in the organisation,” he said.

job will not be yours unless you can speak and write well in English.

Feedback from local and international employers shows that verbal and written communication skills in English remain the most sought-after attribute in prospective employees.

According to a recent Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) survey, it is the most important trait employers look for when recruiting graduates.

The MEF Salary Survey for Executives 2010 revealed that 68% of the companies surveyed named communication skills as the top quality required in job applicants, followed by working experience (67%), interpersonal skills (56.2%) and passion and commitment (55.7%).

MEF executive director Shamsuddin Bardan said globalisation had changed the nature of jobs, making communication skills, specifically in English, a valuable asset for today’s worker.

He added that this was an essential criterion even for professions traditionally seen as “backroom” staff such as engineers, technical personnel and scientists. “It is especially so for those working in multinationals and bigger firms,” he said.

“Today, our clients are worldwide. In factories, for instance, engineers are a different breed from the past,” said Shamsuddin.

“Now, they have to be involved in various aspects of business and interact with clients.”

Shamsuddin expressed concern that many local graduates today could not speak or write proper English, saying this was a reason why they faced difficulties getting jobs in the private sector.

Kelly Services (M) Sdn Bhd managing director Melissa Norman concurred, noting that six in 10 graduates who attended its interviews could not communicate effectively in English.

The company is one of the top headhunters in the country.

Norman said it was important to master English as it was widely used among the business community, both in Malaysia and internationally.

The Kelly Global Workforce Index survey released in 2010 listed “communication skills” as one of the top five most desired skills within the corporate sector.

“We have encountered local graduates who are weak in spoken and written English and have limited vocabulary,” said Norman.

“These candidates can only manage to secure jobs in small-medium enterprises and small businesses.”
