Bandar Seri Begawan - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Everyone speaks English. You don’t need Malay but classes are available. Not sure if the cost. - Jan 2021

None really. - Aug 2014

None. Basically everyone speaks English. It helps to have some basics for bargaining and getting the "local price" versus the "tourist price." - Nov 2013

Little. English widely spoken - Dec 2008

None. A little. Everyone educated here speaks excellent English. Market Malay would be helpful. - Jan 2008
