About Multi Educational Book Enterprise
Multi Educational Book Enterprise is one of the leading and most enterprising Government Textbook Publishers in Malaysia. Amongst its more commendable achievements, the company has been publishing two bi-monthly English-language magazines since 1988. These magazines are immediately recognizable anywhere in Malaysia, whether in Government Primary schools or even at homes with such reputed names as ‘The Educator' and ‘Junior Educator'.
The magazines have reached out to hundreds of thousands of pupils in primary schools throughout the nation over the more than twenty years since their introduction to the education fraternity in Malaysia. The magazines are so informative and thought-provoking that they have become a ‘tool' of education, besides providing a source of edutainment and fun to both pupils and teachers alike in schools. Even children at home are bemused with these publications. Parents, on the other hand, often use the ‘Educator' magazines to encourage their children to increase their knowledge, apart from using the magazines as a form of revision and for testing purposes.
It is also through these magazines that pupils are exposed to and are presented with an opportunity to participate in various interesting and educational English-language activities in their respective classes and schools. The challenges faced and the fun encountered have made the experience of mastering the English language so attractive to pupils and teachers that the fear of learning the language has rightly been dispelled. It is most worthy to note that English language teachers often use both the ‘Educator' magazines in their class-room as a basis for teaching and engaging in discussions to further instill interest in the language and as a strong supplement to regular and existing methods. Since the English language exercises in these magazines are based on the current school curriculum set by the Ministry of Education, the response has been overwhelming.
These magazines have been designed to cater to pupils hailing from various ethnic back-grounds and possessing different language aptitudes, skills and abilities. It is estimated that about ninety-five per cent (95%) of Primary schools in Malaysia have been directly introduced to these magazines. In fact, the magazines have become the most sought-after in terms of their scope, content and reliability. Without a doubt, they have long been established as the best-selling English language magazine in schools.
Apart from its mainstay, that is, the publication of its two magazines, Multi Educational has, over its long and illustrious business span published over twenty-five (25) textbook titles for use in schools. These textbooks have been acknowledged and recognized as being in compliance with and fulfilling the requirements and standards of the past and current curriculum of the Ministry of Education. In the year 2009, the company was even awarded a contract by the Ministry of Education Malaysia (KPM – Kementerian Pelajaran Malaysia) for the supply and delivery of some titles required under the Ministry ' s ‘Supplementary Reading Materials' (‘Bahan Bacaan Tambahan') category.
