Here we go again, are we going back to learning and teaching Science and Mathematics in English in school? Since then, PPSMI became the subject of hot debate, especially among the academics, politicians and the public.
PPSMI was introduced with several objectives, which mainly is about the government's concern on the nation's capability to achieve the standard values of a developed country. How does using English as the medium of instruction is linked to becoming a better country? In order to be successful in these fields, students must have a good command of English language.
The global aspects of education and career related to mathematics and science are all best progressed and developed through the use of English language. These two fields often gain easy access only in English language, for example, when pursuing studies abroad.
English language is spoken internationally and this gives an open door to students to gain comprehensive knowledge. He also added that scientists in Western countries constantly seek effective solutions to issues through proper research and the findings are shared only in English. Although the government has yet to make any decision on the reimplementation of PPSMI in schools, the public already voiced out so much about going against it. Give schools, parents and students the option to learn Math and Science in English or not.
Currently, the education system in Malaysia practises DLP whereby it is optional for not only schools but also parents and students the choice to learn STEM subjects in English. This opens up the option for school to decide and see whether English language or Bahasa Malaysia fits better to be the medium of instruction. I teach math and addmath. It is hard enough for them to understand it in their native language.
Back then when i was in school and ppsmi was implemented, even teachers were struggling. Teachers will find it even harder, but they have no choice but to comply with the decision made by the government. If students find it hard to understand what is being taught in English, the teachers will face it harder to teach. A qn I always ask: If a teacher is teaching and no one is learning, is the teacher teaching?
Our goal as a teacher is to meet our students needs when it comes to learning and reaching their potential. PPSMI is not for everyone. Some of us who attended high school during the time when PPSMI was implemented, we might have benefited a lot from it.
But in order to make teaching happen, there must be two-way effective communication. Teachers only have one goal in their career which is to fulfil what the students need. You love english and reading? There are also some teachers who are not proficient in English language. This policy must be examined through different aspects with fair consideration. I have no problem with it and I am happy learning math and science in English.
Some products of PPSMI back then who studied Maths and Science in Bahasa Malaysia during their primary school and then switched to English in their secondary school may have different opinions and views on this. We can agree that being able to fully understand English language is a privilege not everyone can have. Considering the location and environment of the students, not all can have better access and exposure to English language. While PPSMI used to receive good feedback from the public when it was implemented in , why did the government decide to abolish it in ?
The public so far has shown negative responses to this idea. Free Counseling! Search EasyUni for courses, universities, guides and articles. Share this page with friends.
