English Curriculum To Be Revamped – Hishammuddin

PUTRAJAYA, April 18 (Bernama) — The Education Ministry is looking into radical measures to strengthen the command of English among students, including revamping the curriculum.

Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said today the measures included a more comprehensive teacher training programme and introducing English literature as a subject as early as during primary school.

“This is for the experts to advise me (the introduction of English literature). I personally would like to see that it at the primary school level because this is where the children are able to master many languages.

“Poor command of English will hold us back as 75 percent of telex messages, 80 per cent of computer data, most satellite communication, and 5,000 newspapers or more than half the newspapers in the world are in English.”
