KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 8, 2015:

The Education Ministry released its official statement yesterday announcing the implementation of a pilot Dual Language Programme (DLP) which will commence next year.

“The pilot programme will see the participation of 300 schools, both primary and secondary across the country.

“Subjects involved during the pilot programme for primary schools will be Mathematics and Science for Standard One and Standard Four while for secondary schools, the subjects will be Mathematics and Science for Form One only,” said its director-general Datuk Seri Dr Khair Mohamad Yusof.

He said that any schools wishing to participate in the programme are required to meet certain criteria.

“The school must have sufficient resources in terms of text books, reference materials and teaching aids. Other than that, the school principal must agree and is prepared to implement the programme temporarily and for the long run as well.

“The approval and support from parents is also vital. Last but not least, the achievements of the Bahasa Melayu subject in the school will have to be on par or better than national average.

“Aside from that, there should be at least 15 students registered for the class of the selected schools,” said Khair.

The ministry will also provide teaching materials for the subjects involved to aid the schools in implementing the programme, he added.

Khair said that schools that do not wish to participate in the programme will have to issue an official letter to their respective school districts within five days after the programme is implemented.

In addition, the school will also have to send a copy of the official letter to state education department and to the ministry’s school management department.

The DLP is one of the ministry’s effort in strengthening English language proficiency under its Empowering Bahasa Melayu and Strengthening the English Language (MBMMBI) policy.

The programme is aimed at strengthening the usage of English aside from giving the opportunity for students to compete globally as well as preparing them for future careers.
