A single and looking 24yo man recently cast his net for a dating partner on Twitter, but that wasn’t the surprising thing.

Other than the usual criteria of age and personality, Twitter user Arjuna also wanted someone with an English proficiency of MUET band 4 and above.

Although Arjuna also stated that this is optional, the internet has become divided over this unusual academic requirement.

The Malaysian University English Test (MUET) is a test of English language proficiency, largely used for public university admissions in Malaysia.

The bands go from 1.0 to 5+, with band 4 being akin to a “B2” grade and showing an “independent” proficiency in the English language.

Some find the requirement classist

Others agree that language proficiency is needed

Arjuna’s one Tweet has sparked a conversation about communication, language proficiency and its strong correlation to better education and opportunities.
