Singapore has various different cultural backgrounds to celebrate. The government encourages citizens to learn a variety of their national languages in order to engage in the culturally rich background of the country. As you study in this diverse country, it becomes essential to invest some time into learning the national languages.

Singapore has four official languages, and Malay is one of them. In all educational institutes, studying Malay is essential for all students in Singapore. Not only does being proficient in the Malay language help students with their academic course of study, but it also aids their communication skills whilst living in Singapore. If students are bilingual or multilingual, it is easier for them to perform better on job interviews or university applications in the future.

Since a majority of students in Singapore struggle with the Malay language, Malay tuition is becoming rather popular amongst the student community. These tuition can serve as a great way to engage with the national language and prepare for your exams effectively.

Why do you need Malay Tuition

In Singapore, apart from studying English in primary school, students will be required to learn a second language which emphasis on the writing, reading, listening and speaking skills. As Singapore is a multi-racial country, English is the common language that most of the people use for communication in our daily lives.

Thus, many of us are beginning to use lesser and lesser of our mother tongue languages. Unlike Mathematics where it is often associates with formulae and concepts, language requires consistent practice for one to master and excel. Therefore, in order to excel in Malay language, it needs efforts to practice it frequently with proper guidance given.

Why Is Learning Malay Difficult?

Almost all students in Singapore face a variety of languages when they first interact with the Malay language. One of the most basic concerns of students is their limited and weak understanding of Malay grammar, especially since schoolteachers expect students to already know grammar rules when they step into the classroom. Apart from grammar, developing a strong and wide range of vocabulary in Malay is also rather difficult for students.

For oral communication and viva, it is important for students to pronounce each word of the Malay language properly. This is something that most students struggle with, especially since their traditional teachers only focus on the writing aspect of Malay. Even if students have a clear understanding of what they need to write as a response to a question on the exam, they find it difficult to put their thoughts into correct words of the Malay language.

If students do not have a thorough understanding of the language, it becomes difficult for them to interpret the questions on their exam paper. Especially in the comprehension part where students are required to read a passage and answer subsequent questions, it is difficult for them to comprehend what the question demands.

When writing long essays, students tend to face the challenge of not having enough examples to use to make a valid point. This means that students struggle with their lack of knowledge regarding Malay literature, proverbs, or the common usage of the language.

If students struggle to understand the Malay language, they are typically unable to complete the entire exam within the allotted time. This is due to poor understanding, difficulty in comprehension, and lack of effective examination strategies.

Proliferation of the Malay Language

In schools, Malay students are only given no more than two hours daily to learn Malay language. Within such a short timing, the teacher might not be able to focus and provide the needed attention to each of the students in the class. When in doubt, some of the students might be too shy to ask questions in front of the class. Mere instruction from the textbook is insufficient for engaging the students and provide the answers to their queries. Furthermore, not all the Malay families converse in Malay at home. The lack of practice in speaking will further affect the performance of the student.

Besides students, adults are also seen to enrich their learning of the Malay language either for own interest or for those where Malay language is required as a form of communication for overseas business trips in countries like Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia.

I was looking for a Maths tutor in May this year for my daughter who was in Sec 2. She has been failing her Maths since Sec 1 and is really in need of help. My preference is someone who stays in the same neighbourhood for ease of travel and of course, good in Maths. Davis is quick to respond and recommended Ms Celine. Thank you Davis for connecting us. Ms Celine has done a great job with her teaching methods. My daughter scored an A2 for the final year exam which is a vast improvement. Ms Celine, you are a gem! Here’s a review from the tutee for her tutor: She went through all the chapters in the textbooks and taught me whatever concepts I did not understand. She also focused more on my weaker topics until she felt that I mastered them. When she finished all the chapters and I had mastered them, we only did practice papers until exams came. She also provided extra tuition near the exam days. Overall, she has really helped me improved and she is not strict and working with her was fun :)
