We Malaysians are definitely proud of our rojak language, the Manglish. Due to the diverse cultures all mixed up in one nation, surely we have a few words that would boggle the minds of ang mohs.

Take for example, the most Malaysian sentence we can agree on would probably be “Ah neh, tapau one teh ice, ikat tepi.”

Our England veli powderful ok~

Despite all of these jargons, it is quite surprising to find out that Malaysia’s English is ranked at No.2 in Asia!

And our proficiency in English is the 12TH best in the WORLD!!! Say whut???

Malaysia's English Ranked Second Best Among Asian Countries - World Of Buzz 1

Wow 1

This was a result from EF EPI, the world’s largest ranking of countries by English skills. They tested the English proficiency of 950,000 adults from 72 countries in 2015 to come up with this data. Not including countries whose English is their first language.

EF EPI’s report stated that countries such as Malaysia and Singapore have historical relationships involving English as we were once colonised by the British. Hence, the language is often used in the government, schools, and even for daily communication amongst citizens.

Asian women’s English is also better than the men as women scored nearly 2 points higher. The women in Asia also scored almost 1 whole point higher than the global average of women’s English proficiency.

However, throughout the world, women generally have stronger English skills than men. Besides that, better English skills have been linked to better quality of life and high income.
