The Role Of 'Malaysia Tamil Language Standardisation Council'

  • 04 May 2019

The Tamil Language, which is regarded as one of the oldest languages on earth, is still being widely used by our Indian community, the third largest ethnic group in Malaysia.

In regards to this, the Pakatan Harapan government is determined to improve the Tamil Language Education (TLE) and has set up Malaysia's first Tamil Language Standardisation Council.

According to the Deputy Education Minister Teo Nie Ching, the council consists of Tamil language experts, exam syndicates and various parties, who will work towards managing every aspect of the language and its usage in Malaysia.

The council commitee will have 37 members in total; 13 members in the management division and 24 members in the operational division.

Moving forward, the council will focus on generating vocabularies, translating books and documents, publishing materials, as well as enhancing grammar skills. 

Besides that, as part of the TLE project, the government will also set up pre-schools and Special Needs Integration Programme (PPKI) classes in Tamil schools.
