My one and only brother, Jeremy is no longer a small boy. He is moving into his teens. Stepping into secondary school means an all new era for him.
As I was browsing through my brother’s English exercises, I almost fell off my chair.
Seriously, no joke.
Let’s look into his English Comprehension/ Summary exercise book.
Wait, Jeremy is in Secondary One. Not Primary One!
Why is he learning matching pictures with words? Don’t they learn what’s charcoal and fire when they are in Primary school??
You mean they don’t learn how to construct sentences in primary school? Shouldn’t they be learning how to write longer essays at this age?
What has happened to our dearest Malaysian education?
Can someone please tell me why is the standard of Secondary 1 English has dropped so much compared to our era?
I can’t believe this!
No wonder I still find conversations like this; “Excuseeee me, miss. I want a letter signature from your boss by your company and you cannot forgotten to fax to me, you know?”
Buat aku pengsan terus!
