My English Matters is a project founded by the three of us, Amnah, Azimah and Aisya. 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.
If you're interested in knowing more about our workshops, online courses and other services, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get in touch.
Or join our emailing list! Sign up below and we will send you our first online class, Speaking with Confidence, straight to your inbox.
Want to know more about us? Sure! Keep reading as we awkwardly refer to ourselves in third person.
After spending more than six years in marketing for a telecommunications company, Amnah decided to leave her corporate career and pursue freelancing doing English and Malay translation. She now takes care of the business and marketing side of My English Matters while raising her three boisterous boys at home. When she does have some free time on her hands, she enjoys reading and binge-listening to podcasts on entrepreneurship, personal development and other inspiring content.
Azimah Shurfa has twelve years of teaching experience in public universities, teaching subjects such as Public Speaking, English, Linguistics and Drama. She has a Master’s Degree in English as a Second Language and a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Sciences, majoring in English Linguistics and Literature. She is also a certified trainer in adult learning. In her spare time, she loves to read books on personal growth, communication, teaching practices and productivity. She also loves to travel with her husband and daughter. She is currently a freelance translator, editor and instructor. Her focus is now on teaching English communication to the mass, with a focus on young adults and professionals.
Aisya spent over half a decade in university poring over English literature and falling in love with some of the greatest writers and poets before she decided it was time for her to leave the academic world behind (for now) to create a bit of art of her own. With a degree in English Literature, she has spent the past nine years as a freelancer doing editing, translating and voice-overs for commercials. When she's not busy working, 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.
