weekend highlight

isu hangat adalah PPSMI. jadi, ini pandangan sy lah.

1. sy xsokong adik2 kena belajar maths & science dalam bahasa inggeris. sebab sy tengok sendiri adik sy jadi lampi belajar maths & science dalam bahasa yg dia xberapa nak pandai, lalu dia jadi lost juga lah kadang2.

2. sy sendiri belajar maths & bio + chem dekat matric dalam bahasa inggeris dulu boleh jadi blur juga kadang2. bila mahu jawab soalan xm dalam bahasa inggeris, it takes time juga. adik2 sekolah rendah apatah lagi.

3. cikgu2 yg terpaksa mengajar maths & science dalam bahasa inggeris pun ada yg mengeluh.

4. kalau peringkat yg lebih tinggi macam matrikulasi & universiti, xada masalah kalau belajar dalam bahasa inggeris. cuma dekat sekolah, macam kesian lah dekat adik2. [hm.. macam kakak mithali, kan? ;p]

5. emm. lagi? ada lagi. tapi nanti entri jadi super panjang. pakcik2 & orang2 yg belajar maths & science dalam bahasa melayu dulu pun boleh glory sekarang what.

apa2 pun, ilmu memang penting. belajar dengan bersungguh2 kunci kejayaan. [sy berwawasan hari ini ok]


* * * * *

kejap lagi kena balik kolej. uh. malas sungguh.

hari tu tengok blog islami, tersentap tengok 4 case write-upSSSS beliau yg sudah siap bind!! woho. sy punya baru siap print 3 cases. 1 lagi belum start langsung. [adoih. padan muka, siapa suruh jadi pemalas]

angah cakap Kyle XY season 3 akhirnya menjadi xbest. [ish. xboleh jadi.]

tadi pergi wedding. sekarang kalau pergi wedding, sy akan usha baju pengantin. jadi, sy sudah ada warna tema yg akan dipakai untuk wedding sy. [saidamunira memang suka berangan]. selain baju kahwin, sy idamkan wedding sy xada set karaoke. yg ada cuma muzik caklempong atau any traditional music. wah.

berhenti dari berangan2 dahulu, sebab luggage [hoh, luggage ;p] belum kemas. urgh.

eh eh. kami ada anak kucing parsi baru. 2 ekor, nama BOOboo & TAMtam
. cikgu Hang Lekuk bagi semalam. heh heh.

esok akan pindah sekolah dekat Hospital Kuala Lumpur pula.

wink wink ~.^

Hye Cik Saida Munira,
really wants to comment on ur post but have no mood to do it but to be honest that i totally agree with PPSMI..maybe we can sit together and discuss about this..not now lah...xchat skit...but for me,if kita nak tgk adik-adik kita berjaya,xsalah mereka bermula drpd sekarang...:)

Hye,
Yupz, i totally agree with haiza-leen, sy sgt teruk berbahasa inggeris dan i was realized that english is the most important thing in communication skill when u ur in the working environment so for me xsalah if PPSMI diteruskan demi melihat bangsa Melayu terus maju ke depan, tp harus diingat bahawa bahasa Melayu turut tidak akan dilupakan malah bahasa Melayu harus seiring membangun bersama bahasa Inggeris..Jika saudari, berminat mungkin saudari boleh membaca sedikit ulasan drpd mantan Perdana Menteri kita, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad di : http://chedet.co.cc/chedetblog/

to haiza-leen & mosaic1809:
memang tidak dinafikan, bahasa inggeris adalah satu aset yg penting pada hari ini. Dan, tujuan PPSMI diwujudkan adalah murni, untuk melihat anak2 Malsysia menguasai bahasa antarabangsa itu terutamanya untuk mempelajari bidang sains dan teknologi yg berkembang pesat pada masa ini.

However, i personally believe that, to learn science and mathematic in english will bring more harm than good to the future generations of Malaysia.

Tidak wujud persoalan mengenai 'bahasa melayu akan dilupakan oleh org melayu' dalam hal ini. Apa yg dipersoalkan adalah mampukah anak2 kita menguasai sains dan matematik, jika ia diajar dalam satu bahasa yg masih lagi asing bagi mereka? Saya berasal dari kawasan dimana majoriti penduduknya adalah melayu. I doubt that there will be any family in that area that use english in their daily lives, even for a very decent amount. Even the very educated families in that area do not use english extensively at home. And this is not only true at my place. I believe that it will just be the same in other areas where most of the residents are petani, penoreh, peneroka dan nelayan.

In any field of studies, the basic foundation is very important. For science and maths, we start to build our foundation when we were in primary school. This is the period where it is very2 important to make sure that the students understand what they were taught about. If this is not done, it will be very difficult for them to move on to a higher level when they reach secondary school or tertiary education level. Now, ask yourself, will there be a solid foundation of science and math if it is taught in a language, different than what they use in everydays life? Will the foundation be stronger if it was taught in their own langauge instead? And HAIZA-LEE, u mentioned that it is difficult for you to learn english at your age. it is not because of your age i supposed. It is because your english foundation when you were in primary school was not good enough. I am studying in an english speaking country at the moment. surprisingly, it does not make any difference to my english proficiency at all. Blame it on my foundation!. But, i am still thankful that i learned Math and science in my own language when i was in primary school. That gave me a very good basic foundation of math and science. Or otherwise it will just be as bad as my english. Tunggang terbalik!

It is undeniable that some of our children will benefit extensively from learning maths and science in english. But, a vast majority of them wont. And most of them are malays and bumiputras. I always believe that children of ours do have the best brain in the world. but if the medium of transmission is not correct, it will render it to be useless.

The level of english proficiency in our country is still considered primitive. it is growing though, as more people started to realise its importance. but, i dont think that we are ready to implement this PPSMI in our country as yet. There will be time, perhaps one day, when english is used extensively in our community, and that will be the right time to start this PPSMI. the time is absolutely not now.

To MOSAIC1809, it is a bias, in any arguments, to look into one side only without comparing it to the other side. Obviously Dr Mahathir will defend PPSMI. And he does have a strong reason for that. I remember watching an interview session with Professor Diraja Ungku Aziz, at TV3 about 3 years ago. He was asked a few questions regarding our education system. He was thrown about 8-10 questions at that time, and he was not answering the question at all, but rather kept on talking about the importance of language in education. everyone who watched that session will understand that he was referring to PPSMI. Remember that Prof Diraja ungku aziz is a very important educationist in our country. He managed to put University Malaya among the top 100 university in the world when he was a vice chancelor. His words mean alot!

A few weeks ago, a politician (i cant remember which one, sorry) mentioned that the efficiency of PPSMI is still vague as it is done only for a few years up until now. he said it requires at least 15 years before we know whether it is effective or not. Fair enough. But, how many children do you think will involve in this 15 years experiment of an education system? Millions!!. What if it fails? Then, millions of our children aka future generations will be the victim. This is dangerous. I am not taking the risk.

I think i need to stop now. Saida will be mad at me if i write longer then her own blog entry. i dont like arguing, but this one topic, is certainly not right to me and i need to voice my views. Perhaps you guys can discuss it in your blogs. and i will leave some comments if i have time. Dan ingatlah, jangan kita terlepas apa yg dikejar, yang dikendong pula berciciran. (kasik gaya karam singh siket) Bye bye
