Forum 1 : Discussion issues on the language of instruction.

Assalamualaikum dan salam sejahtera. 

Language of instruction for me is very important because Jamaludin Isaac (1992 in Lokuin 1998) explains that there are two groups of students of English in Malaysia. The first students in urban or semi-urban and rural students second or rural areas. The first group received wide exposure and adequate language and accept the fact that English is a second language. In contrast, for the latter, they do not receive enough exposure to the second language. Additionally, they have a negative presumption against the English language. This attitude is received from the environment around them. Environment here can refer to the family environment.Normally, parents rural primary education and less exposed to foreign languages​​. When parents lack of exposure to the language, it also affects their children's education. This will lead to the achievement of their deteriorating. Unlike students in urban, the use of English in the two subjects is not an obstacle in improving their performance.This make english or languange of instruction important to student to make the student be success in life with english. 

Thank you.
