English Teachers For Pre-schools

Hamidah Atan

Pre-schools will be part of the national education system and will be provided with trained English teachers, deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced this morning.

The education minister observed that students in such pre-schools learnt basic English in less than a year.

“The children were able to study and speak in English. My idea is that we should make learning of English at pre-schools a thrust in the early learning process. We will, therefore, add pre-schools to our education system,’ he told 3,000 educators, teachers and ministry officials at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre yesterday.

The meeting was part of efforts to explain the government's decision to revert to the teaching of science and mathematics in Bahasa Malaysia.
