What was it like going to school in England as a shy, quiet eight-year-old who could barely speak English?

I shared my struggles to become fluent in this week’s episode, “Why Does English Matter”, where I was interviewed by Siti Norfatihah, an English Language Studies diploma student from Kolej Universiti Islam Selangor (KUIS). 

Some of the tips we talked about were ways to practise the language, including starting a vlog, listening to podcasts, and writing your goals and dreams in English.

Watch the podcast episode here.

You can also listen to this episode on SpotifyApple Podcasts or Google Podcasts.


Although this episode was more of a conversation about my personal journey (listen to the story of how I mistranslated an English word on my first day of school to eventually becoming an English tutor to my classmate!), I invite you to apply some of the tips shared in this week’s episode in your working adult life.


So take some notes, watch or listen to the episode and enjoy!
