Singapore’s education system places great emphasis on all students having a bilingual education and Malay is one of the Mother Tongue Languages in Singapore. A student is required to be tested on their Mother Tongue in PSLE, O levels, N levels and A levels. Beyond taking up Malay as a subject, students can even opt to take up Malay literature. Adults are even taking up Bahasa Melayu or Bahasa Indonesia to learn Malay as a conversational 2nd or 3rd language as it is indeed an important language in the South-East Asian region. We can even learn malay in Singapore community centres or take up basic malay language courses.
