New Curriculum Next Year To Upgrade English Education

The Education Ministry will introduce a new curriculum to improve
English education at the primary and secondary level by January next
year, Director-General of Education Tan Sri Alimuddin Mohd Dom said

He said the new curriculum would combine various existing teaching
methods with additional ones such as music, literature, choral
speaking and such.

"The ministry will discuss the matter in detail after we have sat down
with the non-governmental organisations, teachers' unions and English
language experts so that we can map out the concept paper.
