如在马来西亚当地报纸报道，120000的29.2%的大学毕业生在马来西亚大学英语测试得分的带一个和两个（是），这表示她们“非常有限”、“有限”的分别。考虑到马来西亚是一个发展中国家，声称使用英语作为第二语言，是有人在教育第三水平但不能构建一个语法正确的句子很失望。他们与其他国家的同龄人不一样。事实上，这个问题已经引起国人巨大的关注，至于为什么这些学生不能有效地使用英语。 基于随机访谈和观察，大多数人承认他们没有掌握语言的基本知识。由于基本是在早期教育年获悉，据推测，学生无法在三水平达到他们的英语考试不错的成绩可能已经收到的语言基础较差，从而导致上述学生面对近年来学科困难。 在马来西亚的小学里，学生们准备好了以学术为基础的课程，再加上马来语和英语。由于学习是一个连续的过程，关键是教师应配备有效的教学方法，使学生，尤其是那些在初级教育水平将掌握该学科的基本知识，以避免进一步误解的主题，在未来的岁月里。事实上，学校的规划尤其是英语相关的课程，必须精心组织，加强学生的理解水平，实事求是，以补充学生的学习能力。
As was reported in Malaysian local newspaper, 29.2% of the 120,000 college graduates scored Bands One and Two in the Malaysian University English Test (MUET), which identifies them as “Extremely Limited User” and “Limited User” respectively. Considering Malaysia is one of the developing countries which claim to use English as its second language, it is very disappointing to have individuals who are at the tertiary level of education but cannot even construct a grammatically correct sentence. They are not up to par with their peers in other nations. Indeed, this issue has induced huge concerns among Malaysians, as to why these students cannot use English effectively.Based on random interviews and observations, most of them admitted that they had not mastered the basics of the language. Since the basics are learned during the early schooling years, it is presumed that students who are unable to achieve decent grades in their English exams at the tertiary level had probably received a poor foundation in the language, which would then cause the aforementioned students to face difficulties in the subject in later years.In Malaysian primary schools, students are prepared with the foundations of academic based subjects together with Malay and English. Since learning is a continuous process, it is crucial for the teachers to be equipped with effective teaching methods so that students; especially those in primary level of education will be well versed in the subject’s basics to avoid further misunderstanding of the subject in their future years. In fact, the school’s planning of English language-related programs in particular, must be well-organized to strengthen the student’s level of understanding, and be realistic and practical, in order to complement the students’ learning capabilities.
