"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

Chinese Language Policies In Singapore

We are a group of students researching the impact of the declining standard of the Chinese language on society in Singapore as our Project Work assignment. The following survey is part of our research and we would appreciate your help in completing it.

The declining standard of Chinese has manifested itself in several education policies:
- The Chinese Language B Syllabus is an easier exam and syllabus studied by students who are struggling with the language.
- Requirements for taking Higher Chinese have been lowered to make it easier for able students to take the language at a higher level in hopes of producing a bilingual elite.
- University admission criteria have been altered, making it no longer compulsory to include Chinese results in admission scores.
- A new review committee has been set up to monitor and modify Chinese teaching methods in accordance with the ability levels of students.

We would like to know your opinions and views on these changes. Thank you.


Question 9: How would the policies affect you personally?
Answer: Others: I DO NOT TAKE CHINESE ANYMORE. MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Friend: the guys in my block are looking for girls to drag into the toilets to shampoo. all of us have to lock our doors. what the heck

and it's very difficult to wash clean after tt cos they use A LOT of shampoo

Me: wah lao sounds like they go around raping girls... forcibly pinning them down etc

Friend: close
