How much of the local language do you need for daily living? Are local language classes/tutors available and affordable?

None really. - Aug 7, 2014
None. Basically everyone speaks English. It helps to have some basics for bargaining and getting the "local price" versus the "tourist price." - Nov 6, 2013
Little. English widely spoken - Dec 29, 2008
None. A little. Everyone educated here speaks excellent English. Market Malay would be helpful. - Jan 2, 2008
