Malay language courses are offered by the School of Humanities as free electives at introductory level. We offer three levels of Malay language courses. These modules offer students of different disciplines an opportunity to experience Malay language, expressions and culture. Through these modules students will be conversant in Malay language and experience the joy of interacting fondly with their Malay speaking friends.
Our lessons and class activities are conducted in an interactive way. Depending on the nature of the exercises, pair work, group work and role-play are popular methods of teaching. In addition to the textbook; games and quizzes will be incorporated into class activities to delight students' learning experience.
Our Malay language courses aim to provide students with competence in understanding and using basic Malay, that is, to enable students to use Malay language with regard to the four language skills - reading, writing, listening and speaking - at the basic level.The emphasis is on its practical use within a limited range of situations at the level of everyday communication. It aims to enable students to express themselves on things close to themselves using simple expressions. The content of this course is also designed to introduce some aspects of Malay sosial and cultural practices through the use of texts and exercises in the course materials
