Had a short talk with my church mate recently on the standard of English that is being taught in our national schools. She is an English teacher for almost 20 years and teaches the students of Form 4, 5 and 6.
She felt the bitter aftertaste of the declining standard of English, comparing it with the standards of the yesteryears. Not only that, I got the shock of my life when the
Kerismuddin Ministry of Education (MOE) decided to insert graphic stimuli (just like PMR) into SPM English 1119 Examination Paper.
I refused to believe the wide spread rumors until i finally tainted my vision after viewing the book with my naked eyes.
As you know, I am actually saddened by the truth of PMR English being degraded incompetently.
Why must they insert graphic stimuli and short texts into the 1119 Examination Paper?
Haven’t they done enough to vilify the beauty of English?
It’s amusing to see how the MOE is confused at examining the students on the subject of language or Mathematics.
I strongly believe that this is not the standard the Pre-Uni undergraduates and college-bound teens should be subjected to.
Where is the benchmark?
I realised the MOE has a uncalled for tendency to question students on irrelevant issues like road signs.
Are the students taking JPJ L-license exams?
NO ENTRY again?
I thought I saw something similiar at the PMR English workbook.
Those who cannot score an ‘A’ for today’s SPM English should be prosecuted!!!!
