Pemandu conducts short online survey to seek public views on English language
In the introduction to the seven-question survey, Pemandu said it would be seeking the anonymous views of Malaysians on the need for English fluency.
“The survey takes no more than a minute to complete. The survey is anonymous. No personal data will be captured.
“We also seek your support in increasing our outreach. Please forward the survey link to others who may be interested to participate,” said Pemandu in the introduction to the survey.
The seven multiple-choice questions in the survey are:
> Would you consider some subjects in school to be taught in another language besides Bahasa Malaysia?
> If Yes, which language would be your preferred choice?
> In your opinion, should some subjects in schools be taught in English to improve students’ proficiency in the language?
> Do you think teaching English in other subjects would reduce the importance of Bahasa Malaysia as our national language?
> If English is used as a language to teach other subjects, what subjects should be taught in that language?
> Based on your Question 5 answers, please explain why.
> How important do you think being proficient in English contributes to a student’s career?
