Country Spotlight: Malaysia

Country Spotlight: Malaysia

About this episode:

Welcome to "You Don't Say?!" the podcast for English learners about life around the world, cultural differences and things that have surprised us on our travels. We have a different style of episode for you today called a Country Spotlight. Every 4 weeks we’ll ask our listeners to vote for one country and then we’ll spend a whole episode talking about all the surprising, interesting and challenging things about living there. This episode is focused on the multicultural country Malaysia.

Some topics we’ll discuss:

  • Food - eating out 24 hours a day
  • Language - being multilingual and language ability
  • Shopping - the culture of haggling
  • Education - studying at primary school
