Student accommodation in Malaysia
One of most important factors that international students will consider when the searching for a language school is finding and choosing the right accommodation. Also, some international students might be interested in other factors such as accommodation cost, accommodation distance, if there's good transportation to the school and if halal food is available.
International students should be notified of the fact that accommodation options are very limited because the English language is not the native language in Malaysia. Also, The Malaysian society is a conservative Muslim society which makes it difficult for families to host students in their house.
Residence: a positive feature of living in a student residence is that international students will have the chance to meet other students from around the world. Also, this type has average prices, always exist near to the school and city/town centre so students don’t need any transportation, and has a varied cultural environment.
Hotel: international students would choose this type of accommodation if there are some circumstances like travelling with a companion (Wife, Mother, Son...etc.) or if the other types are not available or desired. Also, this type has many privileges that some students would desire like a private room, full hotel services, and always exist near to the school. However, the cost is usually higher than the other types.
