Image result for empower EnglishThe Johor government is aware of the importance of English among students, more so in this era of globalisation and modernisation, which requires them to use it widely not only when learning but also when venturing into the working world.

State Education, Information, Entrepreneurship Development and Cooperative committee chairman Datuk Md Jais Sarday said plans were being made to implement several programmes under the policy of upholding Bahasa Melayu and strengthening English proficiency (MBMMBI).

Among them is the 5 Star UPSR (Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah) and SPM (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia) programme requiring each district to identify five per cent of candidates who are in the fail-pass level to be guided through a two-day workshop, he said.

He said the workshop aimed to increase by five per cent the number of students with a pass in English.

Md Jais said they would also hold an UPSR and SPM ‘Effective Writing Programme’ to expose and empower English teachers.

“Teachers will implement the programme in their respective schools for six weeks and then to produce report on the achievement of every student,” he added.

He said this when replying to a question by Datuk Ir Syed Sis Syed Abd Rahman (BN-Tanjung Surat) in the State Assembly, here today.

The Johor Education Foundation has also collaborated with Universiti Teknologi Malaysia to organise the English empowerment programme ‘Penggayaan Bahasa Inggeris Negeri Johor’ for which RM1 million has been allocated, said Md Jais, who is also Mahkota assemblyman.
