wtf ! about Language

W T F ! ( wat the food )

this Malaysian rice meal is called

" nasi lemak " in Bahasa Melayu

" 咖 哩" in Chinese ( Mandarin )

"இலைத்தகரி " in Tamil ( issit ah ?)

...is fragrant , spicy , tasty and comes with simple fried ingredients

Widely enjoyed by the 3 harmonious main "ethnic" races of Malaysia , still , the squabbling about who has the tastiest dishes or , the best language rages on

In 2002 , this handsome young guy (right) , alarmed at the declining standard of English among the youths , implemented English to teach Science & Mathematics for students in Government schools , to rounds of applause from happily jumping students (below) !

Then , just a few days ago 6 years later the also speak Engrand one Deputy PM (top left) shockingly announced this linguistic trial be withdrawn , dumping the estimated sunken misadventure costing omg ! RM4 billion
( wtf !) into the backStreets , a disgraceful admission of the abysmal failure of the Great Xperiment.and moving Malaysia back again into the Dark Ages (once more omg ) !

As usual these little innocent guinea pigs (below) in the classrooms
are the ones to feel da heat. Hello , the masks are useless lah !

And so....following this flip flop extraordinaire ...from year 1 to 6 ,
each of the Malay , Chinese or Indian kids will learn these 2 subjects
in their mother tongues...look mak , no more telibel Engrish, kan ?!

From year 6 to 10 they have to switch to Bahasa Melayu for these 2 subjects.

After that ? Who knows ...English ? Russian ? Iraqi ? why not Madagasarian ?

the Result ?

Chinese & Indian kids will become officially 3lingual while
the sorry Malay kids will end up 1lingual.

1Malaysia Bolih !


coming up soon nex...
...its a piece of cake

It is better to master 1 language then be confused by 3. We are turning into a funny lot.

I totally agreed with worldwindows. Now, these days in Indonesia (the big cities), it becomes a big trend that parents are trying very hard that their kids got enrolled in those bilingual or trilingual schools.

It's just too confusing. Can't they just stick to 1 language and 1 system instead of changing it so frequently?!

having a good command of 2 or more languages is a great asset ! and truly it is not that difficult if the opportunity is given

sugarbean
its that thing called political survival, or looking for scapegoats ,or ulterior motive ( sometimes things are not what they seem !)
