The English language isn’t a common first language for most Malaysians. So for those who grew up watching Dexter’s Laboratory and listening to Linkin Park only would understand how it is being one.

Here’s a few!

 

1. You have been labelled as a show off, “sombong/berlagak” or “lan ci” for speaking in english

2. You can almost feel the disgrace in your Chinese/BM teacher’s eyes

3. English was a confirm A subject

This is the subject that is always the least of your worries. Study? Pffftt! Heck, your parents don’t even bother asking you about your English grades.

4. English teacher’s pet

With good grades comes great responsibility. Being good in English usually automatically makes you the teacher’s pet. As uncool as it is, sometimes it feels great when she uses your work as examples.

5. You know quite a lot about the western culture

Watching so much American/UK TV shows has made you pretty ‘white’ in a way. You understand their references and pop culture. Plus, you probably wanted to do whatever you’ve seen on TV and wish you were living there. Go to New York or Las Vegas, party it up on the weekends, visit their Walmart and so much more!

6. Growing up with limited social circles

Communication is a struggle. You tend to feel like an outcast among people because a majority of them speak their own mother tongues.

7. But when you find someone of the same ‘species’

You instantly become best friends.

8. For some reason, sometimes people automatically assume you are Christian

Is it just a bad stereotype??

So what if I’m not good in my mother tongue such as BM, Tamil, or different Chinese dialects?

 

10. And when someone thinks you’re not local because of your accent

It’s practically the best unintentional compliment someone can give.
