Teachers are one of the main pillars of a student’s success.
Without education and guidance from teachers, a child would not be able to gain knowledge and develop intellectually.
Recently, a teacher caught the hearts of the Malaysian TikTok community with a viral video. The teacher, known as Cikgu Buvanesan, was shown teaching her Malay students the Tamil language.

Through the 59-second-long video, Buvanesan was seen calling one of her students and asking her whether she was interested in learning Tamil.
After piquing the child’s interest, Buvanesan taught some basic Tamil verses like good morning, good morning and I love you.
Seeing the potential of her student who was quick to learn and pronounced each word correctly, Buvanesan was quick to praise the girl.
Meanwhile, a survey in the comments section found that Buvanesan’s efforts have garnered the likes of many, especially the Malay TikTok community.
Netizens continuously praised Buvanesan’s spontaneous attitude in teaching her students Tamil, despite it not being part of the syllabus.
Thus far, the video has garnered 94.7k likes, 3688 comments and 2683 shares.
