After he finish his talk, I give another questions to my friends to ask Mr. Wong. I changed my placed to make my friends easier to interview Mr. Wong.
4.0 Description of the interviewee¶s career According to Mr. Wong, the vision of his life is he like teaching very much and he think this is the something like inborn interest. He would like to spend the rest of his life in teaching as long as he live, and if he can. Then , he want continue teaching and the vision of his life is to educate more children, more young people and to guide them toward the correct ways and become good citizens in Malaysia. Mr. Wong had taught for many years in secondary school, almost 11 years and he switched became to a lecturer in teacher training college. So, he had taught almost11 years in secondary school and the other 17 years as lecturer in teacher training college. That means, he had teaching in 3 different places, Maktab Perguruan Lebuk Pantai, Kuala Lumpur as a Chinese lecturer, Maktab Perguruan Kinta, Ipoh for half year and then the rest of about 10 years he taught in another teacher teaching college. So, all together his teaching life was 28 years. After Mr. Wong retired in the end of June 2007, he rest more than half of year, is about 9 months. Then, he became relief teacher in 2008 until he got the offer and the contract became a lecturer in UPSI for 2 years and his contract is from 2008 December to 2010 December. So, hopefully Mr. Wong can continued his job in UPSI. The factors that contributed Mr. Wong to be a lecturer is he had many interest in this job. He like to teach. He think that it is part of his life and he like to talk. He like to input his knowledge to young people, to share with them, let them know about the Chinese, Mandarin, History and everything. The biggest challenge when Mr. Wong start off as a lecturer is because the students came from different family background, different educational background, different level of profession in Chinese language, so he found that there is great differences among the level of usage of Chinese language because he was teaching in Chinese language courses. For Mr. Wong, some of the students well-prepared, they are good profession in the language, so for them should not be the problem. But, some of them who are not good profession in language, they normally difficult understand what was Mr. Wong taught, especially during the phonetic course. Most of them, they do not have the good foundation, good background, good sound 4
knowledge in phonetic. So, for them, is a problem when they face the problem in understanding, in pronunciation, in writing and others. So, this is the greatest challenges for Mr. Wong in teaching. Students came from different background, and they use different dialet, like Hokkien, Hakka. So, he had to spend a lot of time to driving them in daily communiciation. The others challenges that Mr. Wong faces is students¶ attitude towards study. Some of them, they are not so keen because this course are not their first opinion. Even though for some of them never apply for this course. But, they are given this course, so they are show not any interest and they just want to get the degree and the job. This is not their main interest to become a Chinese language teacher. So, Mr. Wong think that their attitude and their concept should be change by guiding them towards the right thinking. That means, they want to be a good teacher, they have to develop some interest in this course and this subject and also hard work to do everything. They should be well-prepared, not only for the examination or presentation and assignments, they should be prepare everythin,set up their mind and hardworking. According to Mr. Wong, he always prepared himself to face up the challenges. He knows that he have to give himself time and have to be very preparation to teach the students. He have to full patient to guard them, correct their mistakes full-heartly and giving them different exercises, giving them a lot of ³humour´ during the lesson so that the lesson become more interesting, not so boring. Sometime he makes joke with his students, sometime he laughs with them. So, the class become more lively. When the class become more lively, the cordial relationship between lecturer and the students should be very much advanced. He think that is the way he curb this problem. To change the students¶ mind set, he always talk to them sometimes whether casually or maybe outside the classroom to give them some peck talk, comfort them, give some advise. So that they really take their study serious and prepared themselves well to become a good secondary school teacher in the future. The greatest strength in Mr. Wong will be can talk to the student, can communicate with them and also can tolerance except certain important thing. He 5
like to teach the class which is reactive, good response, not talk and talk only. This is because he don¶t like just he give the students everything and then they just listen and they don¶t response. Mr. Wong can do quite well in this sense that he can communicate with students, can talk to them and don¶t show his angry face in front of the students. All this is because of helping them, helping them to understand the lesson, to make the lesson more interesting and also guard them along the way. What is the most difficult to guard them because he know that some of them cannot follow the lesson. So, he will ask them what are the questions they do not understand? What area they could not understand? In that way, he get the response from the students. In this case, it help solving a lot of his problem. So, this is his greatest strength. Besides that, he is very responsible. He hope that his students will do well in the exam and pass with flying colour. In order to achieve that, he prepared himself improve his intelligent strength to much advanced. He also like the students to do revision and prepared before he start the lesson. In his opinion, he is a bit soft-hearted in some case. When the student can¶t finish their assignment in time, they always ask for permission to give them more time. That means they will pass up their assignment more later. He always allowed them to do so because of soft-hearted. And then because of that, sometime he cannot key in the marks in time. So, he think that this is his weak point even thought maybe this is his strong point in some student¶s heart. If some of the student don¶t attend to his class without telling him. He will very angry. In his opinion, he thinks that if a student absent themselves without inform you or without telling you in advance, this is not respect to the lecturer. So, he think anybody also will get angry. So, this is what Mr. Wong very particular with. This is because he don¶t want himself to get angry and show the angry though the students. The best part of being an educator of Mr. Wong Han Chong is education. For the Mr. Wong think, educator is very best word which cannot wish teaching for educate a person. Educating a person mean a take situation for changing behavior is valuate in life and also phylosophy of teaching. Mr. Wong is compulsory on the 6
part in the government, officery servive and the best part of him is a educating because not only teach student but educate them. There are student is very hardfull study and cannot study, this is very important in their life. For the best on their life when to listen a good adviser of people and good moral value the person on their life. Mr. Wong think, he will know to request when so many student under him or under teaching get closed and open the closing under him. So, he has founded while be a teacher or educator. Mr. Wong think also, he necessary him dream of becoming a teacher was kuck fortune a teaching after STPM to become a teacher in their future and then be a decision to be become a teacher was born delivarded so when he succesfully in come started in university so he got ready to become a teacher. Mr. Wong also have a memory of teaching as a carier. He was given the best classes, medium and the last classes. He not disappointed if student is not interesting with their academic. So actually that one also with to pushing to thing to of wave to improve the live and also open he mind be an educator especially comment. Mr. Wong think also, student cannot which tent to IQ, EQ and then who don¶t want study upon thing on your class and noisy a lot of problem. After that, Mr. wong also gives a opinion about the most important thing that expect to be a good educators. Mr. Wong think to be a good educator must be enrounder. Firstly, we must put yourself down to the land that mean must not show with your subject, as teacher must listen 100 percentages for student respect to our carrier as a teacher. Even though that, a democration line should be two line is a joke with them and serious while a teach. Two online a location way are to be expitching like go a bit. Thirdly, we must good moral value for role model to student. The student will respect when have a good moral value. Fourly, we should always seeking knowledge for life long education. We must read a newspaper, article and everything to another to improve your knowledge. Student will respect because you are rich a knowledgeable. Fively, we must good personality so we are can communicate people the way we are can handle ourself, behalf and teaching. Other than that, Mr. Wong also gives advice for people who dream to be a good educator and yet find it hard to make the leap. Mr Wong should give advice for young people want to be nature high work when go to the university. Mr Wong 7
also excel yourself by taking part a cocuriculum, port and then Personal Releationship (PRO) to be good and also develop depent of education. Mr. Wong think also that education is very important and should be sharing your knowledge to people because other people will share our opinion about knowledge so we can improve knowledge will be to correct. After that, we must show our creatibility so student will come to you for sharing a problem. According to Mr. Wong, the vision of philosophy of education must train teach the hole person from all angle where it involves the knowledge, character, overcome problem, independent and make choices. Firstly, educators should train a student with knowledge. So, the student can become a good knowledge person especially in academic study. Secondly, student must have a good character. They can become a good citizen and contribute his skill to the society for a benefit of the country, people, family and himself. Thirdly, student should know how to overcome the problem. This is because everyone have a problem so they should train or know how to stop the problem they have. Fourthly, student also should train them to be independent. They must know how to independent when living in particular place. Lastly, student should know how to make the right decision. They cannot make a wrong decision when they have a lot of choices such as academy study, future life, your partner or whatever this. He also said that the current education system is examinationoriented. This situation actually is not suitable for student because they should know not all of student love to read. Maybe, for education system this situation is easy for them to solve the education problem. So, according to Mr. Wong, the education system must be change and must add the new vision in the future to be more open-minded and look at globally that can give exposure not only in small space. In his opinion, because the education system to refer exam-oriented so all of people evaluate the student on academic study. According to his opinion, some student are not good in terms of academics but they better in terms of hangs on knowledge, in doing work, in doing practical. This situation shows they did not like writing, answering question, remembering and so on. But the student love to think 8
about skills work and this depends on the use of their left brain and right brain. Some of student, use more right brain where it is better to language art while student who use left brain their more of analatical or mathematic is very good and they also very creative and have a high IQ. So, according to his for evaluate student base on academic performance there is not good because in our present education system will attract student entering university base on the 90% academic study and 10% on cocuriculum. Mr. Wong said, in future life the minister should change the way learning in schools with the assignment not only depend on 100% examination as PMR, SPM and STPM. Learning in school must be the same with learning in university like in this university depends on 60% base on assignment and 40% base on final exam. So, the student not just back on exam because maybe when they back on exam no assignment they will get failed. When they have a assignment, the task can help them to score a mark. Besides that, according to Mr. Wong in future life school should follow this university learning. Such as, maybe school make a 50% base on final exam and 50% base on assignment. This situation can produce student to work up in group and learning something new like presentation, find the information and so on. For 50% base on final exam can help them to reduce their tension and also it will help them to the revision with easy. This is a good way to help student from do the mistake and they will get the good result. So, to evaluate the student base on academic performance is not good and difficult to student.

: Vision of my life ?
: I think I like teaching very much and the something like inborn interest. And I would like to spend the rest of my life in teaching as long as I live, and if I can. Then , if I still to work, I want continue teaching and the vision of my life is to educate more children, more young people and to guide them toward the correct ways and become good citizens in Malaysia.
: So, what is the factors contributed you to be a lecturer?
: I think after teaching for many years in secondary school, almost 11 years and I switch become to a lecturer in teacher training college. So, 11 years in secondary school and the other 17 years as lecturer in teacher 11
training college. So, I have teaching in 3 different places, nombor one is Maktab Perguruan Lebuk Pantai, Kuala Lumpur as a Chinese lecturer. Second, is Maktab Perguruan Kinta, Ipoh. I work at there for half of a year and then the rest of about 10 years I teaching in another teacher teaching college. So, all together my teaching life is 28 years. After I retire in the end of June 2007, then I rest for about half or year, is more than half of year, is about 9 months. Then, I become relief teacher in 2008 until I got the offer and the contract become a lecturer in UPSI for 2 years and means that my contract is from 2008 December to 2010 December. So, hopefully I can continue my job in UPSI. The main reason why I want to become a lecturer is I have many interest in this job. I like to teaching. It is part of my life and I like to talk. I like to input my knowledge to young people, to share with them, let them know about the Chinese, Mandarin, History and everything.
: Then, what is the biggest challenge when you start off as a lecturer?
: You means lecturer?
: I think the greatest challenge to me is because the students came from different family background, different educational background, different level of profession in Chinese language, so I found that there is great differences among the level of usage of Chinese language because I¶m teaching in Chinese language courses. Some of the students wellprepared, they are good profession in the language, so for them shouldn¶t be the problem. But, some of them who are not good profession in language, I found that they difficult understand what I¶m teaching, especially during the phonetic course. Most of them, they do not have the good foundation, good background, good sound knowledge 12
in phonetic. So, for them, is the problems when they face the problem in understanding, in pronunciation, in writing and others. So, I think this is the greatest challenges. Students came from different background, and they use different dialect, like Hokkien, Hakka. So, I spend a lot of time to driving them in daily communication.
: Are they have any others challenges that Mr. Wong faces?
: For the second challenges that I face is students¶ attitude towards study. Some of them, they are not so keen because they are not their first option, even though for some of them never apply for this course. But, they are given this course, so they are show not any interest and they just want to get the degree and the job. This is not their main interest to become a Chinese language teacher. So, I think that their attitude and their concept should be change by guiding them towards the right thinking. That means, they want to be a good teacher, they have to develop some interest in this course and this subject and hard work to do everything. They should be well-prepared, not only for the examination or presentation and assignments, they should be prepare everything. Set up their mind and hard work.
: Thanks Mr. Wong for answering my questions. Now, I will pass to my friend to continue questioning.
: May I know how did you work through these challenges?
: Basically I prepared myself, means I know that I have to face up the challenges. I know that I have to give myself time and I have to be very preparation to teach them. I have to full patient to guard them, correct their mistakes full-heartly and giving them different exercises, giving them a lot of ³humour´ during the lesson so that the lesson become more interesting, 13
not so boring. Sometime I make joke with them, sometime I laugh with them. So, the class become more lively. When the class become more lively, I think the cordial relationship between lecturer and the student should be very much advanced. I think that is the way how I curb this problem. To change the mind set, I have to talk to them sometimes whether casually or maybe outside the classroom to give them some peck talk, comfort them, give some advise. So that they really take their study serious and prepared themselves well to become a good secondary school teacher in the future. So, this basically how I take of the problem.
: What do you consider to be one of your greatest strengths?
: I think the greatest strength in my life will be can talk to the student, can communicate with them and also can tolerance, of course to the certain thing we can¶t. I like to teach the class which is reactive, good response, not talk and talk only. I don¶t like. I don¶t like just I give them
everything and then they just listen and they don¶t response. I think that I can do quite well in this sense that I can communicate with student, I can talk to them, I don¶t show my angry face. All this is because of helping them, helping them to understand the lesson, to make the lesson more interesting and also guard them along the way. What is the most difficult I guard them, I know that some of them cannot follow the lesson. So, I will ask them what are the questions they do not understand? What area they could not understand? In that sense I get the response. In this case, it help solving a lot of my problem. I think that is my greatest strength. And I think I am very responsible. I do hope that my student will do well in the exam and pass with flying colour. In order to achieve that, I prepared myself improve my intelligent strength and much advanced. I also like the students to read whatever thing I like them to do before I teach the lesson, before I start the lesson.
: And what do you consider to be one of your greatest weaknesses?
: I think sometimes I¶m a bit soft-hearted. When the student can¶t finish their assignment in time, they always ask for permission to lend time, to give them more time. That means they will pass up their assignment more later. If I allowed them, I always give allowance to them. And then because of that, sometime I cannot key in the marks in time and delay it. So, I think this is my weak point. It¶s also my strong point and also my weak point. If some of the student don¶t attend to the class, my class, they just ³ponteng´ without telling me. I will very angry. I think to anybody this is normal because human being. Because if a student absent themselves without inform you or without telling you in advance. I think anybody also get angry. So, sometime I¶m very particular about this thing. I don¶t want myself and then I will be very angry. That will be my weak point, is it?
Yun Jing Siti Munira Mr. Wong
: Thank you Mr. Wong. Now I pass the next question to my friends. : What is the best part of being an educator for you? : Education is the best part, educator is very best word we cannot wish teaching we want educate a person, that mean not wish a teaching the best part in knowledge so educating a person mean a take situation changing behavior my pact is valuate in life and also philosophy of teaching and then i think the best educator to me, would be I have not regret for changing in my hold life for teaching student so far I have not kurt any one on life student perfect so many classes so many student maybe 300, 200 student on my hold teaching carrier, I think not of them, back gined, class edit and the their almost good citizen the most of them event have PHD, to become a doctor, to become be engineering can also perfectual in the life in one minute did I have. I deal compulsory on the part of you on the government, officery servive or during young people that I think that best part of me is educating because not only teach them but I also educate 15
them. A person very study or cannot study, this is not very important in their life they must should follow their life. The best on their life and to listen good advisers of people which scartion and then all this good moral value the person on their life. I think the best part of educating is a so many children, get closed and open the closing so many children under me, under my teaching, so I have know request I founded while be a teacher be a educator. I think you can think which I necessary my dream of becoming a teacher was kuck fortune a teaching after of my STPM I waiting become a teacher of my future and then be a decision to be become a teacher was born delivarded so when I was succesfully in come started in university so I got ready are decided there are became a teacher. If I was not given change to become Cambridge teacher maybe I lanted want be lecturer educator lecturer. I always have a memory of teaching of course my teaching carrier. I do have make some problem like some of student if not interested in their study. I was given the best classes also the medium classes. So when I was given the last classes in the formal. They have taken any same I told what talk them, they have not interest in study there not direction in their life, wanted, wanted. I was not be a disappointed, so actually that one also people with to pushing to thing to of wave to improve the live and also open my mind that my eye that be an educator a teacher is not their easy especially comment. Men came of them not pushing then easily of pushing that expression. They cannot which tent passion student to IQ, EQ and then who don¶t want study upon thing on your class and noisy then a lot problem, we got two think about. So be are not perfect for edicting look their location you would then. I would long my carrier a teacher until 28 years, I teaching a carrier. I also be continue a teacher.
: In your opinion, what¶s the most important thing you expect to be a good educators?
:I think to be a good educator you must be rounder . First, you must put yourself down to the land that mean you took must not show you are subject, you are teacher you must listen to me 100 percentage of course student should respect a teacher. Secondly, I think the relationship which a very friendly, very closed among teacher with student. Even though that, a democratic line but when student look see you so serious they cannot come to you. We so jokevial and always laugh that they are bully you, so I think that you have two online you must know when two online, you can joke with them but you don¶t like them apart overhead. So I think two online a location way you are to be expitcing you like go a bit and then you are looked a bit, put back a train. I think mantain are sudden level you must know when to changing a bit land when to go back to bit that very important criteria. Third, you must good moral value, you should good cover your student. If you not showing good moral value, the way you doneting, the way you coolting, the behavior is not to good, not the obedient, not the discipline, they not comfortable like that. Of course, they are not come to you because you not bad. Fourth, you should always seeking knowledge you should be lifelong education. You have got to read, to newspaper, you got read article, you got read everything to another to improve your knowledge. Student will respect you because they know that task do knowledge not necessary that this optimistic you feel also of side of feel so that you push yourself very knowledgeable and student will respect you. Fifth, good personality, you can communicate people the way you will handle yourself, have a behalf, have you are teaching. Personality teacher, you must be very strong more, very pleasant, very presentable, everybody looked you very look up upon you, they know came to you, approchable, officetable, account of personality, student can respect you.
: Any advice for people who dream to be a good educator and yet find it hard to make the leap? 17
: I should gives for young people want to be nature feel to be high work hard and when you are under university. Secondly, excel yourself by taking part a curriculum, port and then PRO personal relationship to be good can also develop depend of education. If you want be a teacher you have to develop cannot search result lot strong designer to teach to impact knowledge to the young. If you are doctor, PHD but you are not share a people, I think is not good educating. You should be sharing your knowledge, by sharing knowledge you will combine. So people can comment about you and you can improve to be a correct. Doesn¶t mean that say, I not PHD model, you have a master, my knowledge about hold so not by sharing. Somebody ask to you question then you do not know the answer and then you feel you that moral life, be leader so that good to you because you know you good something but not interesting, nobody is perfect so that kind of offer feeling of reactional I think should is complete to be creatable. Of course you must right, you must sent speech, taking to them and of course leadership. You must show your creatibility, if student got of you to share problem, you can help them. And of course you must to be a very sensial helping of student.
: In your opinion, what is the vision of education?
: I think in µFalsafah Pendidikan Negara¶, the vision of education should be to train or to teach the hold person µinsan yang menyeluruh¶. Hold person mean from all angle. Number one is knowledge. Educator should train a student with a knowledge. So, that he become a good knowledgeable person especially in academic study. Number two, will be to more the person good character. So that, when he comes up to the society he can a become a good citizen and contribute his skill and also this work to the society for a benefit of the country, for a benefit of the people, for a benefit of the family and himself. 18
Number three, will be or should know how to overcome problem participle, sub problem participle. I think, everybody in this world based a lot of problem in our daily life, everyday life. One week of the other group have a problem. They should be train how to stopped problem by them. Of course, not the young people or not the young kids. Started for youngster, young people, for adult. I think, they should be thought, they should train how to stop this problem because its that do know how to stop that problem then he or she will create problem to be a family member. They will awesome to stopped problem to young very dependent on others. So, you should train them to be independent. Of course, whatever decision them make should be wide with full of term. If they make a wrong decision they can not reflect, they have to face their contribute. µKatakanlah ada pilihan¶ a lot of choices, maybe for academy study, future life, your partner, whatever this. So, they should know quite well that any decision their make should be their on live, they cannot blink people. I think, know this our education system is a still very-very examination orientate. Then, it is not flow a student, it just book work. Of course, not everybody. Some of them their catching book work and then, they come to benifazing you problem that to how to overcome the problem. So, there is the vision of our addition system in the future, should train and to be open minded then also look at globally. Five factor. Not only seen that not show of their hole, their family, not only that self..must along of exposed.
: What is your view to the phenomenon that many people evaluate student base on their academic performance?
: Actually this question both sound to the vision that our academic study quite examination orientate. So, everybody look at people or the evaluate people on the academic performance. So, my opinion will be a sound student their not so good academically but their good in other thing for example in hangs on knowledge in doing work, in doing practical their 19
good but they not good in academic study. That means when come so writing, when come so answering question, when come so remembering they can not or analysing thinking but when doing think skill work their good, so it is desert weather their born right brain or left brain. Some of us born right brain they mean their more powerful with a good act languages. If those people who one left brain, their more of analatical, mathematic is very good and some people are born very creative, some people born IQ very high. So, I think that the evaluate a person base on academic performance there is not very justify, not so good. Of course, in our present education system will come to attract into university popularity base on the 90% base on academic performance and 10% base on your curriculum. I think maybe in the future, the minister or they daily life that. So, they have change in the future that the school basic with a assignment should be a think into contraction how many person and not 100% base on final exam. There is sitting the final exam in SPM, PMR or STPM. It deserve like our university maybe 60 or 40. 60% of assignment and 40% of final exam. So, we don¶t just back on one exam. If u back of one exam, no assignment maybe you just learn to failed, so twice student. So, will give 60% of assignment so that the student will face up their the task by doing the different assignment and then they can produce good work. It can help them score a mark or rather them just read, read for what final exam that said. I think, in the future school should follow this kind of that, maybe 50/50. 50% assignment which the student got the do contribute envantually or group of both of them and then that is consider 50% of the final mark and another 50% person will be from final exam. So, in this sense then the reduce that student tension and also it will help them to the revision and do the work to are the hole course not only back final exam. Only back one final exam, I think that is very difficult. If that they are person is good to are the hole peer but one she or he is sitting of the finally exam is sudden mistake and he will good or he will pass. Evaluate a person base on poor perfect academic performance, I think that is very20
very should be or not fearful but before any the mistake education preliminary good base of representative so it is skill at a performer at the move. Siti Azlina : Thanks a lot to Mr.Wong for cooperate with us and share your experience, so I think until here our interview today. Again, thanks Mr. Wong. Mr. Wong : Okay, thanks.
6.0 Reflections After doing this interview, we become more understand about Mr. Wong.
