English Skills for 10,000 Malaysian Youths
72% of students in Malaysia do not meet the proficiency of a secondary school graduate. 19.5% of students failed English in the SPM exam and 33.5% of students received the lowest pass grade (D and E). While English language education in Malaysia is compulsory, there is a marked difference in educational attainment between urban areas and rural areas.
We developed a game-based learning platform for children and youth with low digital literacy and learning motivation, complemented by a reliable monitoring and evaluation system for teachers to follow students’ learning progress closely. We hope to address the problems above in Malaysia. While using the application to learn English, students were also given access to explore other courses available on the application whenever they wanted so they could improve their skills and knowledge.
The program will allow them to integrate into society. Our future generations will have equal access to economic knowledge and they will attain critical and technical skills and confidence in their ability to learn, adapt to changes and solve problems. At least a thousand Malaysian young people will directly benefit from our project.
