National Language Policy and Its Impacts on Second Language Reading Culture
Azmi, Mohd Nazri Latiff
Journal of International Education and Leadership, v3 n1 Spr 2013
This research concentrates on Malaysian language policy and its impacts on the development of English language (regarded as a second language in Malaysia) specifically on reading culture. The main objectives of this research are to investigate the weaknesses and strengths of the policy and also to come out with recommendations to improve the implementations of the policy. This qualitative research involves 345 experienced English language teachers and 11 experts who were asked to answer open-ended questionnaire and semi-structured interviews. The findings show that policy has not yet achieved its goal to build English language reading culture among primary schools students due to several constraints and it needs some betterment in terms of the implementations.
