9781138948754: Languages in the Malaysian Education System: Monolingual strands in multilingual settings (Routledge Critical Studies in Asian Education)

This book provides an overview of language education in Malaysia, covering topics such as the evolution of the education system from pre-independence days to the present time, to the typology of schools, and the public philosophy behind every policy made in the teaching of languages. The book consists of chapters devoted to the teaching of languages that form separate strands but are at the same time connected to each other within the education system. These chapters discuss:

  • Implementing the national language policy in education institutions
  • English in language education policies and planning in Malaysia
  • Chinese and Tamil language education in Malaysia
  • Teaching of indigenous Malaysian languages
  • The role of translation in education in Malaysia

It also discusses the development of language which enables the national language, Malay, to fulfil its role as the main medium of education up to the tertiary level. This book will be of interest to researchers studying language planning, teacher education and the sociology of education, particularly, within the Malaysian context.
