Tony Collingridge said:
“I am pleased to witness this agreement by two very competent organisations to improve the proficiency of English in Malaysia and around the region. English has long been established as the universal language of commerce, education, science and even diplomacy. This is indeed a noble venture and I wish both STC and the Melewar Group every success”.
Tunku Dato Seri Iskandar Tunku Abdullah said:
“Whether we are in Malaysia, India, China or elsewhere, undoubtedly our indigenous and national languages are primarily used within our countries. However, there is a strong need for emphasis to be placed on the use of the English language. We must give serious attention to equipping our people with a high proficiency in English, as it is equally without doubt, the international language of the world.
We are therefore pleased to enter into this new partnership with STC Consortium as together, we will be able to accelerate and enhance this process by bringing in experienced native English-speaking teachers to the forefront and facilitate the acquiring of proficiency in English”.
Susan Moore said:
“We see this significant new partnership with Melewar Group and the English Learning Group as being instrumental in helping transform teaching in the region. As the 21st Century progresses at lightning speed, we understand the need for countries to keep pace in an increasingly competitive global economy where English is the dominant language.
