The desire to understand people and be understood by them always leads to a conversation with the native population in Malaysia, even if you only know a few basic terms. The most important thing is to approach people with a positive attitude and openness, then everything will work out fine.

Understanding in Malaysia

The official and national language of Malaysia is Bahasa Malaysia. The language is very reminiscent of the Indonesian language. Due to the strong Indian and Chinese population as well as the Muslim religion, however, different languages ​​come together in this very multicultural country. However, the English language is the second or third most widely spoken language. So when you are in Malaysia you will always be able to communicate in English without any problems.

Read the posters!

I personally learned a lot from reading the menus in the restaurants and the posters on the streets. Fortunately, im Bahasa Malaysia uses the Latin alphabet so that it is easy to read and recognize certain words. At the latest when certain words are repeated, a certain logic appears in the Malay language and words can be recognized. Plus, the Malays are extremely friendly and will have a lot of patience with you during your trip to Malaysia.
