Malay is Easy!

priavteclass7We can prove it. Here are some amazing facts:

  • Words do not have genders
  • Verbs are not conjugated to change tenses
  • To indicate tenses, just add a key word. There are only 3 tenses : past, present and future ( past perfect, present continuous tense – throw them out of the window!)
  • Nouns do not need to be pluralised if there are indicators (like quantity)
  • Nouns are pluralised merely by repeating the same word
  • Off springs of animals are only denoted by the word ‘anak’ (Kittens for cats? Puppies for dogs? Forget it!)


Make your stay in Malaysia worthwhile!
