Subscribe to Malay newspapers to strengthen students' language mastery, MOE tells schools

PUTRAJAYA: The Education Ministry hopes to strengthen the mastery of the Malay language among students by inculcating the practice of reading newspapers in schools.

Towards this end, it calls on schools in the peninsula to subscribe to Berita Harian, Utusan Malaysia and Sinar Harian which are the main Malay-language newspapers in the country.

"Purchasing such newspapers can be done directly by the schools using existing allocations," said the ministry in a statement Thursday (March 14).

The ministry believes that doing so can help improve mastery of the national language of students. - Bernama
