Here's Tip 1 for a sneak peek of what's in store for you.

"Alhamdulillah, I'm grateful as I managed to find a way to develop my English speaking skills. Thank you to My English Matters as I've learned a lot through the free online course. Even though I'm studying abroad, I still find it difficult when it comes to speaking with confidence as I did not practice that much back home. My English Matters is a great platform to start building up the courage and confidence to develop English speaking skills.

"What I love about the course are the videos that are well organised, presented and delivered to the audience. The team behind the course are easy to get in touch with for any inquiries.

"Alhamdulillah, my speaking skills are getting better and the most important thing is that I've built the self-confidence to communicate with people, especially English native speakers. I'm looking forward to attaining new knowledge and more exciting tips through My English Matters soon."

This is us right before we first taught Speaking with Confidence last year.
Aisya is on the left, Azimah is on the right and Amnah is standing at the back.

Growing up in a multi-ethnic district of Manchester, U.K. for almost eight years, we became well-acquainted with the importance of mastering a second language.

Our main objective is to help Malaysians as well as non-native speakers improve their English through fun online classes and courses. We specialise in teaching English as a second language, English communication, presentation and writing for adults in the working environment as well as for businesses.

She loves marketing, reading on entrepreneurship, personal development and social innovation.

When she's not busy editing and translating, Aisya, who truly believes in the healing powers of art, can usually be found painting, drawing and sculpting, writing and performing music, and going wherever her passion for the full creative life takes her.
