Return to teaching Science, Math in mother tongue sign now

We , the Malaysian Citizen, urge an objective and comprehensive review of the impact of science and mathematics taught in English in all schools -- national, Chinese and Tamil.



We feel at primary level the teaching of science and mathematics should be conducted in the pupils' respective mother tongue which they are more accustomed to -- the Chinese learning science and mathematics in Chinese and the Malays in Malay.



The reason is simple. Imagine the horror when you can't add and multiply in your own language! So what sort of command of your own language are we talking about?



After all, they still have time to master science and mathematics, when intense teaching of science in these two subjects really commence, and they would have more than sufficient time to master the subjects in English from secondary school level.



To improve the pupils command of English, it would be strongly advisable to intensify the teaching of English even from Std. one level and the subject should be taught at least 4 times a week, with a one day a week 'speak English' regulation to be enforced.
