Bahasa Malaysia or English Language

Last few years, our government decided to change the language in teaching Science and Mathematics. From Bahasa Malayu to English~

After few years, they decided to change back from English to Bahasa Melayu~

Same as few years back, some support while some feel unhappy bout it~ I just want to share some of my own personal opinion on this matter~

Teaching Science and Math in English actually a very good idea because after those students who finish their secondary school, they will proceed to a higher level of education in college/university. In higher education, science and math is teach in English~ So if they already learn science and math during their primary and secondary school time, it will be not much problem for them in their college/university especially those who taking science relate course or math relate course such as doctor, pilot, engineering or boitech.

When we plan something, we plan for long term since it related to the future. If just for a period of time then it should be fine. But this is about the future leaders of our country. If the government change the language just because they think the subjects should be teach in language that understand by the students, IT IS A BIG MISTAKE !!!

Why? Because when the students go to higher level of education, they will find more trouble in understand the subjects cause the subjects obviously going to be harder. It is true that we can produce a number of good doctors even last time they use to learn science and math in BM. But how much effort and time they had use to try to understand science and math in English when they proceed to their higher education? Teaching Science and Math in English during primary and secondary actually help the students in they future studies. For those who wish to proceed to oversea studies especially those who wish to take medic or pharmaceutic.

Dun think from your view of point... think from the point of view of the students, cause they are those who going to learn the subjects. They are the one going to use the knowledge. They are the one going to lead Malaysia in future.

Government ar government... look further please~ the road is still long... dun built an unnecessary traffic light in the middle a straight road~

Aizzz~ Time to sleep~ Dear Dream God... please grant me a sweet,beautiful,great and awesome dream~

I wanted to voice my thoughts too but comments section is way too tiny a place to do so.

Anyhoo, in short, I think there's both good and bad about teaching Science and Maths in whatever language it is. It's either people advocate teaching the subjects in English because it's an international language and future leaders will then gain benefit from it or it's about advocating teaching certain subjects in respective mother tongue. That is, imo, one way to make sure Mandarin, Malay, Tamil and other mother tongues won't extinct and be dead just like that.

However, it's not about the subjects that they're considering most. IMO, it's the language that is being underlined as an issue. They're merely messing things up.

one reason my i support the educational system to be tought in english, is because i know alot of my friends.. Malay, chinese as well as indians of whom speak their mother languages, malay, mandarin and tamil at home and have NOT spoken much english.. leave school with a widen english vocabulary be cause They learn to speak as they study, learning new words to use. Not only has their vocabulary improve, they also leave school with more confidence to use the language in public rather than to just study. This is a small step of improvement for Malaysia and us multiracial community. We should unite to speak our countries language but we should know that the world speak internationally with english. Yes, we live in malaysia.. but malaysia belongs the world and we cant limit our narrow thoughts into just one small little space. The ministry should think of this..
