There are many ways to raise the standard of English...
I am concerned about the standard of English in our country. Even with the implementationof the teaching of Maths and Science in English
I do not see any difference in the English usedespecially by our young. I would like to suggest a few steps to raise the standard of English inMalaysia.What needs to be done first and foremost is to make it compulsory for students to pass theEnglish paper in all government examinations. Then only will people take the language seriously.In schools too
the number of English periods per week should be increased. Ideally
studentsshould have English lessons every day. If we are short of English teachers
perhaps we shouldconsider hiring native speakers to teach the subject. I am sure that there are many wives of expatriates here who are capable of teaching the subject. Besides
students must be encouraged tomake reading a part of their daily activities. Apart from reading English books
they can also watchgood English programmes on television.I think much needs to be done to bring back English to its glory days.Edmund ChuaTaiping
