MESSAGE FROM TUNKU DATO’ SERI (DR) ISKANDAR BIN TUNKU ABDULLAH
GROUP EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN, MELEWAR GROUP
The Melewar Group had envisioned the importance of the English language in contributing towards human capital development in emerging and developing economies when, through its company English Learning Group Limited (ELG), it entered into a partnership with the Linguaphone Group, UK – a global leader in language training to establish a network of Direct English programme providers in a number of South East Asian and South Asian countries in 2011.
This partnership has brought significant impact to the English language training and learning sector not only in Malaysia but also in the region. With the potential for further growth and success, Melewar Learning Resources has since been established to assume the setting-up and coordination of Direct English centres in Malaysia and Singapore.
Direct English, with proven success globally, is uniquely well placed to benefit the full spectrum of English learners; from university students to young professionals to corporate executives, from absolute beginners to advanced learners.
With the recent statistics released showing there are currently around 1.75 billion English users of varying proficiency worldwide and with the number expected to rapidly increase to 2 billion users in 2020, English is now not just a language, but an essential and indispensable necessity.
The Melewar Group is thus enthusiastic and committed to be at the forefront in bringing “English Direct to the World”.
