If “O-M-G!” is widely known as an internet acronym for “Oh My God”, it is no exaggeration to say that Malaysia has now successfully upgraded the slang for “O-M-E!” which is an exclamation for “Oh Mak Engkau!” in Malaysian culture to “Oh My English!”.


Oh My English is an educational sitcom comedy launched by Astro which aims to help Malaysians to improve their spoken English. This sitcom presents a unique learning experience dedicated especially to youngsters in order to help them learn and communicate in English in a fun way.


Each episode will explain the correct use of English in terms of grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and sentence structure. One of the great things about this sitcom is that it convinces the viewers that it is okay to make mistakes as mistakes are an essential part of the learning process.


Here are some of the most common errors people make when speaking in English:


a) Please “open the fan.”  = “Please switch on the fan.”


b) “Can you borrow me some money?” = “Can you lend me some money?”


c) “Please gostan your car.” = “Please reverse your car.”
