What is BI1M?
Bahasa Inggeris 1Malaysia (BI1M) is an initiative by the Ministry of Finance under the auspices of the National Blue Ocean Strategy in partnership with SOLS 24/7 Malaysia to deliver English training to all Malaysians of all ages for free. The programme teaches basic communicative English to Malaysians nationwide, boosting their confidence in the language and encouraging the use of English as a second language in Malaysia.
2017, BI1M offered free Cambridge English Examinations for top students and Google Apps for Education training and certification for public school teachers who want to bring digital education to the classroom.

English is a critical tool for economic mobility, but it is also more than that. It is the global language of business, a professional requirement of occupations like medicine, law and the working language of international organisations. It is the language of scientific publication. It is the officially recognised language of aviation and seafaring, and 52% of the internet is composed of English words.
The greatest challenge for Malaysians is not reading, listening or writing, our 11 years of formal education is not wasted. Our challenge is speaking English. We don’t have the confidence. Language anxiety and the fear of negative evaluation stops us from speaking confidently. BI1M is designed to break that fear.
