KUALA LUMPUR: Free evening classes in English will begin in two areas of the city in February to help working adults, housewives and students gain confidence in speaking the language. The classes, under a Federal Government programme, is aimed at the lower-income group in highly-populated areas, according to Treasury secretary-general Mohd Irwan Serigar Abdullah. A budget of RM10 million has been allocated, and retired teachers and members of non-governmental organisations will be recruited to conduct classes, Malay Mail Online reported.
He said the idea had come about at a meeting between the Prime Minister, Najib Razak, officials of the Treasury, and corporate figures earlier this year. A few former teachers interviewed for the report questioned whether students would remain committed if the lessons were provided free.


Retired English teacher Shandha Kesava Pillay, 64, was quoted as saying that free additional classes offered by schools were poorly attended. Another retired teacher, Iris D’Cruz, 60, said students should not be allowed to speak in their mother tongue so that they could form their thoughts in English.

This is especially true for those with low income who are left out and want to improve their command of the language,” he said.
Only then can we determine the number of classes and the amount of people in one class,” he said.


They also called for classes to be kept small so that each student would get proper attention.
Emphasis should be placed on attendance and students should be evaluated to gauge their progress.
