The MELTA Logo



MELTA is the acronym for the Malaysian English Language Teaching Association. The stylised ‘M’ is a symbolic representation of the ‘M’ in MELTA. It is stylised to demonstrate that MELTA is a flexible and dynamic organisation. The rectangular box represents the conventional world of education and language use. The ‘M’ breaks the boundaries of the rectangular blue box to show that MELTA and Malaysian teachers need to work both within and outside the box to achieve greater success. It also suggests that there should be no limits to education and learning. Royal blue is the MELTA colour and has been used in its logo since the establishment of the organisation. It represents resilience, depth and stability in education and learning. The colour white represents the notion of tabula rasa in education. It reflects the purity of the learner and the act of learning.
