This is post by DR.M regarding the usage of English language in Malaysian education. It is quite interesting and i’m supporting the teaching of Maths and Science in english ad i’ve never found any book used by my lecturers in Malay language. If there is a chance to improve, why not? Implementing this on the secondary and primary education is a good thing but there must also be science and maths in our language. Let them learn two languages at a time. Student nowadays is better than the previous generation, as they can excel in present education style.  So it will not be a big problem for them. Anyway read on the is interesting to malaysian..

1. Saya mengaku bertanggungjawab berkenaan mengajar Sains dan Matematik dalam Bahasa Inggeris. Kerana itu ramai yang menuduh saya tidak bersemangat kebangsaan Melayu, tidak utamakan bahasa saya.

2. Izinkan saya membuat sedikit penjelasan sebelum saya dihukum.

3. Pendapat saya ialah mereka yang bersemangat kebangsaan Melayu tidak harus utamakan hanya penguasaan bahasa ibunda sahaja tetapi juga melihat bangsanya bediri sama tinggi, duduk sama rendah dengan bangsa-bangsa yang maju di dunia. Hanya dengan fasih bertutur kata dalam bahasa sendiri dengan ilmu pengetahuan yang cetek tidak akan menjadi bangsa kita mulia dan mampu bersaing dengan jayanya dengan bangsa-bangsa maju dan dianggap setaraf dengan mereka.

4. Kita diberitahu Nabi bersabda “Tuntutlah ilmu hingga ke negeri China”. Apakah dapat orang Arab tuntut ilmu orang Cina tanpa mempelajari bahasa Cina, lisan dan tulisan, terlebih dahulu?

    Tips Belajar Bahasa Inggeris dengan berkesan

    1. Never Study A Single English Word
    That’s right, do not memorize words. Native speakers do not learn English by remembering single words. Native speakers learn phrases.
    2. Never Study Grammar
    Right now. Stop. Put away your grammar books and textbooks. Grammar rules teach you to think about English, you want to speak automatically– without thinking!
    3. Learn With Your Ears, Not Your Eyes
    Spend most of your study time listening- that is the key to great speaking.
    4. Slow, Deep Learning Is Best
    Its not enough to know a definition. Its not enough to remember for a test. You must put the word deep into your brain. To speak English easily, you must repeat each lesson many times.
    5. Use Point Of View Mini-Stories
    You must learn grammar by listening to real English. The best way is to listen to the same story… told in different times (points of view): Past, Perfect, Present, Future. How do you do this? Easy! Find a story or article in the present tense. Then ask your native speaker tutor to write it again in the Past, with Perfect tenses, and in the Future. Finally, ask him to read and record these stories for you.
    6. Only Use Real English Lessons & Materials
    How do you learn Real English? It’s easy. Stop using textbooks. Instead, listen only to real English movies, TV shows, audio books, audio articles, stories, and talk radio shows. Use real English materials.
    7. Listen and Answer Mini-Stories (not Listen and Repeat)
    Because the teacher constantly and quickly asks easy questions, you don’t have time to think about grammar. You just immediately shout a couple of words– which teaches you to respond faster, and faster, and faster.
