A cohort of 187 iLTI students of age seven to nineteen were presented with certificates from the Cambridge Assessment English at a prestigious ceremony at WEIL Hotel on Sunday, June 16.
The annual celebration recognised the passing of the Cambridge Assessment English exams, part of Cambridge University, across all certificate levels.
Students enjoyed their moment in the spotlight, as some gave speeches, some musical performances and all were presented with their certificates on stage.
Among the students who passed one of the highest levels, Cambridge Proficiency English (CPE / C2 Proficiency) examination, Lee Zhe Lin,17, said: “I never thought I could achieve the highest of English language proficiency. Before iLTI, my English was mediocre at best, like many others of my age.
“Even though I was sceptical at first, it was worth the effort, for without iLTI’s help I would not be able to realise my new love for English and appreciate all that it stands for,” Lee concluded.
Standard 4 student, Jacklyn Ng, 10, has been studying English at iLTI since she was seven years old. She enthused, “I wish to thank my parents for choosing iLTI for me to learn because iLTI is truly the best place for any child who wants to improve their English to the highest level. A special thanks to all our hard-working teachers, especially Miss Jenny.”
Guest of honour, Director of Institute Aminuddin Baki, Dr Mehander Singh A/L Nahar Singh spoke on the importance of education and the sacrifices made to invest in the future, “You will never know the sacrifices of your parents until you yourself become a parent someday.”
Long-standing Principal of iLTI Thomas Kok expressed, “iLTI held its first English Language Cambridge certification exam ceremony in 2001, 18 years ago. We’ve been successfully running these internationally recognised Cambridge courses for over 20 years.”
“Cambridge English exams are taken by five million students from 160 countries as a ticket to a top-flight education that opens the doors to a world of study, work or travel opportunities. More than 20,000 organisations worldwide accept Cambridge exams,” he added.
Established in 1986, iLTI is the longest established English language centre in Perak. To date, close to 40,000 students have studied English language at iLTI. And around 1500 children and adults attend classes every year at the popular English language centre along Jalan Raja DiHilir.
Supporting the Principal, Director of Educational Development Alister Bartholomew explained, “Globally universities are tightening language testing and a rapidly changing and increasingly globalised job market requires us to communicate effectively in English at a much higher level than before. We have to possess a deeper grasp of the language to make an impact on the local and foreign business communities. Many Malaysian students appear unprepared for this level of English mastery.
Through a tailored Masterclass series iLTI has introduced native speakers and practical guidance about personal statements, essays, resumes and public speaking. Apart from being a leading centre in Cambridge Assessment English, the institute covers all stages of English language learning from preschool to tertiary education. iLTI conducts more than 100 group and personal classes every week. In addition, it collaborates with businesses across the country to bring in-house training to professionals to allow businesses to upgrade their English to remain competitive.
