[Debate] More English Classes for All Schools by 2011
As published in The Star, the Ministry of Education Malaysia stated that all schools will have increased hours of English lessons per week by 2011. This is a measure taken by the ministry after the decision to abolish the implementation of Teaching Mathematics and Science in English programme beginning 2012. The ministry has recently announced changes to be made to the English curriculum or syllabus as well.
So English language teachers, do you think this is a good move? Will there be complaints later on that other subjects are getting lesser attention particularly our national language, Bahasa Malaysia? What should be prioritised then? Share your thoughts and let your voice be heard.
