S'wak Math and Science teachers to receive tutoring from English teaching colleagues

[2019.12.02, Mon 07:03] KUCHING: Year One Mathematics and Science teachers in Sarawak can be paired with English language teachers to improve their proficiency as they teach both subjects in English starting next year, suggests education director-general Datuk Dr Amin Senin. He said the English teachers could provide personal coaching through smartphone apps like Facetime or WhatsApp. "If they have personal coaching with their paired English teachers three times a week I believe within six months their confidence and proficiency level will increase. I hope Sarawak can do this," he said when launching the Sarawak dual language programme here on Monday. Under the programme, Year One pupils in Sarawak will learn Mathematics and Science in English starting Jan 2,2020. Amin said Sarawak was the first state to take up the challenge of teaching both subjects in English in all schools. He said Sarawak would still use the same Mathematics and Science curriculum as other states, only in English. "It is hoped that the teaching and learning of science and mathematics can help students access relevant information so that they can master both subjects and prepare them to compete internationally through excellent English command," he said.
