To encourage young Malaysians to write effectively and converse in English confidently, Sunway has embarked on an English Language Development Programme comprising an English Tutorial Programme, English Public Speaking Competition and a nationwide Sunway-Oxbridge Essay Competition held annually since 2014.
English Tutorial Programme
Sunway Group initiated the Sunway English Language Development Programme with the commencement of the English Tutorial Programme for the Form 4 students of SMK Bandar Sunway in 2013.
Partnering with Jeffrey Cheah Foundation and Sunway University, the English Tutorial Programme is designed to improve English language speaking proficiency and address the challenges of learning English in the national school curriculum.
English Public Speaking Competition
The Form 4 students of SMK Bandar Sunway are also encouraged to participate in the annual English Public Speaking Competition organised by Sunway, a culmination of the English Tutorial Programme, to instil confidence among students to converse in English and improve their public speaking skills.
Sunway-Oxbridge Essay Competition
Sunway Group also spearheaded the annual Sunway-Oxbridge Essay Competition aimed at elevating the standards of education in Malaysian schools, particularly in the proficiency of English. Open to secondary school students using the Malaysian syllabus, the competition is jointly organised by The Oxford & Cambridge Society Malaysia, the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation, Sunway University and Monash University Malaysia.
