math & science back to BM

A'kum n ello..

i was talking with aqilah in the car,and i asked her,"licking lips dalam BM pe?"

and both of us were clueless.

to make it more horror,aqilah even said "ade ke perkataan ntuk licking lips?"

our Malay language is worsen.i told her that the correct words might be jilat bibir,but both of us think that that terms are a lil bit weird.

after 1minute of thinking the correct meaning for licking lips,we gave up and ignore the fact that our BM is bad.

and then,i just surf TheStar's website,and i found this.

Math and Science back to Bahasa, mother tongues (Update)

KUALA LUMPUR: The Cabinet has decided that the medium of instruction for Maths and Science will revert to Bahasa Malaysia in national schools and mother-tongue languages in national-type schools from 2012 onwards.

The reversal of the Teaching of Math and Science in English (PPSMI) policy will be done in stages, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said on Wednesday.

He however added that there will be greater emphasis on learning the English language.

English literature will be re-introduced, as will subjects on grammar and composition.

Beginning 2012, students in Year One and Year Four in primary schools, and Form One and Form Four in secondary schools, will learn Math and Science in Bahasa Malaysia.

The change will not affect those in Form Six and Matriculation.

The two subjects will be taught in two languages until 2014 for other students, he said.

“The gap between rural and urban students has widened since PPSMI started.

“Only 19.2% of secondary teachers and 9.96% of primary teachers were sufficiently proficient in English,” he said, explaining the Government’s decision to revert to the old system.

On efforts to emphasise the learning of English, the number of English teachers would be increased by 13,933 -- retirees would be hired, as well as foreigners if need be.

Primary schools will also increase English classes by 90 minutes a week.

There have been calls from various groups for the policy to revert to before 2003, when the subjects were taught in Bahasa Malaysia in national schools, and either in Chinese or Tamil in national-type schools.

The issue has seen a rare alliance between Malay and Chinese educationists, who are against the switch, although there are also calls by many parents and entrepreneurs for English to be maintained.

seriously,i hope UiTM will continue teaching Math and Science in English.cos the whole class was clueless when the lecturer said "Perencat".

cos really,what is Perencat in English?does it really related with enzyme?

and another thing,this news might be good for some people.i support the work to preserve the Malay language.

but you know,no offence to the people that feel offended when they continue reading this,i was in Kolej Matrikulasi Pulau Pinang before,that place has many people that live in the village than the city,and their english is really,really bad.

yes,they got 3.5 and above,but THEIR ENGLISH IS JUST TOO BAD.communication in english with them is impossible.

as i said before,i support this Math and Science in Malay,but the ministry better make English as a serious subject among the people.

bcos communication in English is important.later in the future,if we want to seek help and improvement from the outside,English is our main source.

and don't be such an ass by saying "we don't need the OUTSIDERS help"..~~..if we don't need the outsiders help,how about we stop complaining to the Indonesian minitry about their new rules to not send more Indonesians to work with Malaysian.


i better shut up about this bcos my english is not that good enough and i know i have plenty of problems,but i support improvement,rather than history or anything.if our race remain the same but doesn't improve,we are ...BAD.

that's all.thanks for reading.
