Our academic team has been carefully selected, and they are qualified and experienced. Our aim is to ensure that you are able to communicate effectively using standardized English so that you can be easily understood.
As a language centre, we accept learners between the ages of 17 to 45.
We believe that when it comes to language learning the focus should be on all four skills: Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking. However, we do incorporate essential grammar and vocabulary into our lessons. In a day, there will be four (4) face-to-face (f2f) contact hours and a minimum of one (1) hour of independent/group learning.

Yes, there are. The academic team organizes suitable learning activities outside the classroom for students to use the language to improve their communication skills through various independent/group learning activities. At the same time, you will get to experience the diverse Malaysian cultures.
Yes, you do. If you are a foreign national, you will certainly need a student visa to attend the full-time Intensive English Programme (IEP). We will help submit your visa application, but final approval rests with the Malaysian Immigration Authority. We will let you know if your application has been accepted.
Yes, you do. Before we place you in the level, you will be administered the placement test to ensure your proficiency level. Furthermore, our experienced instructors will observe you for another three (3) days to ensure that you are indeed placed in the right level. If the level is too easy for you, you will be promoted. If the level is in fact too challenging, you will be demoted. The reason we do this is so that you can maximize your learning opportunities.
English is widely used in most courses and programmes at university level. This is why you should study with us to improve your proficiency level.
Being very close to the equator, Malaysia has a warm, tropical climate with a little bit of sprinkle all year round. Sometimes the monsoon winds bring heavy downpour that is vital to keep the forests nourished, air clean and fresh, and power the agriculture industry. To escape the heat, locals sometimes head over to the highlands like Genting Highlands in Peninsular Malaysia or Kundasang in Borneo. Otherwise, escaping to the beach is also a popular option where the breeze cools you down while enjoying chilled coconut water.
Unfortunately, this is not possible. International students are only permitted to study full-time courses in Malaysia with a valid student pass issued by the Immigration Department. If you enter Malaysia on a social pass, you will be asked to exit Malaysia and re-enter with a Visa Approval Letter to continue your study.
Seeing that all of our students aim to study at university, they are required to achieve specific bands depending on their selected programmes. Therefore, their study at PLC is terminated via the International English Testing System (IELTS).
Yes, you do. It’d be best to schedule an appointment with us so that we can provide you all the information you need. You can do that by writing to us or sending us a WhatsApp message detailing the date and time you’d like to meet with our team.
