    Gemgem…no it is not a joke. You can find the apology by NST at http://www.nst.com.my/Current_News/NST/Tuesday/National/2332392/Article

    Mocha…you do that.

    Suretrueornot…yes it was published in the NST on 23rd August 2008. On 26th August, NST issued a public apology to YAM Raja Zarith as per the link above, and a comment was made to the editor at the following http://www.nst.com.my/Current_News/NST/Tuesday/Columns/2338485/Article

    It is indeed a good question on whether the Education Ministry should heed the call by some language-nationalists to do away with teaching Science and Maths in English because the pupils find it hard.

    How are we, Malaysians, going to compete in the global economy when we cannot even have basic, let alone good, command of English?

  4. BTW…the advertorial was prepared by the university and NST was paid to publish it.

    Imagine if this is the standard of English of the staff of a university with some standing, one wonders what kind of English is being taught in our schools nowadays.
