Assessing the Standard of our English Language

Malaysia’s National Education Blueprint 2013 - 2025 has ambitious plans to boost our education system, with focus on improving our grasp of the English language. The task is an uphill one for the government to carry out, especially with long-standing issues that seem unresolved. We spoke to the Malaysian English Language Teaching Association about these issues and what steps should be taken to go ahead with these plans.
