Malay Language

The Malay unit aims to provide an authentic learning experience of the Malay language. The academic outline and enrichment programme aim to educate and empower students to create their own learning experience in acquiring language skills and cultural exposure. As we believe in the need for authentic interaction in the learning of Malay language, enrichment programme provide students with the basic knowledge to facilitate them in the self-directed project work. In addition, the different enrichment programme would enable students to ‘read the word and the world’. Through these programme, we hope to nurture our students to be critical readers, creative writers and reflective thinkers. We also seek to extend our students’ capacity in the language through their participation in language-related competitions and activities.
