Subramaniam, Vijayaletchumy
Online Submission, US-China Education Review B 6 p745-751 2011
Malaysian philosophy, purpose and objective of the education system are rooted and based on policies stated in the National Education Policy 1956 and Education Act 1961. Whereas the Education Ordinance 1952 urged all Chinese and Tamil schools to be given an equal opportunity to learn English and Malay language together with their L1 (mother tongue). This policy has open an opportunity to the non-Bumis to learn their L1 without any fixed rules. The learning of L1 was not only limited to the basic level, but it also continues to the university level. Emphasizing on the usage of grammar and language structure is very important. Researcher was interested to see the usage of these two components among Malay, Chinese and Indian graduates. The findings of this research is important especially in the teaching of Malay language as the medium of instruction in the education system. All these three parties--the Ministry of Education, Translation Institute and Ministry of Higher Education, play important roles in producing the quality translation materials.
