So, on this visit I have opportunity to accompany my grand daughters to their Bahasa Malayu classes. It is the very basic elementary listening class, as vocabulary is introduced to the beginner. Using objects and pictures, the instructor says the word in Bahasa Malayu and the children point to the correct objects. She patiently repeats the words over and over, hoping to increase their listening skills as they recall words she has taught previously.

Being a visual learner, it is also helpful for me to see the word written out, so my daughter writes out the vocabulary for me.
These photos are borrowed from the family's web page Living in Penang showing one class time. This site gives more details about the class and how my family found it. Please click the link to learn about this beautiful island and some of its interesting features. The web traffic would encourage my family and you'll read about some new adventures of every day life here on the island.
The creation of Living in Penang has hopes of making a more meaningful stay on this wonderful island for tourists, visitors, ex-pats, and just visitors, like me.
So, while I'm basking in tropical sunshine, curl up with your cup of tea and let your curiosity read a little bit about an island in the Archipelago!
