KUALA LUMPUR: Schools are en­­cou­­­­­raged to screen Bahasa Malaysia shows to enhance proficiency in the national language.

Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik said watching P. Ramlee mo­­vies and the popular cartoon series Upin & Ipin during school would prevent students from feeling bored while learning the language.

“Right now, learning Bahasa Ma­lay­sia is not fun, happy and exci­ting,” he told reporters after launching the Raising Bahasa Melayu Standards for Chinese vernacular schools (SJKC) Forum 2018.

He said the teaching and learning process must have elements of edutainment to keep students engaged.

Dr Maszlee also said that teaching any language should involve happiness, love and mutual respect.

“It should not be a burden. (Competency) should not be mea­sured just on examinations,” he said, adding that examinations were still necessary but should not be made the benchmark.

“We also want schools to take the initiative to carry out these activities and not wait for instructions to do so.”
