Promoting English usage among students via High Level Empowerment Programme

SANDAKAN: English teachers should implement ideas through the High Level Empowerment Program (HIP) to find the best way to promote and encourage the use of English among students both in and outside the classroom.

Sabah Education director Dr Mistirine Radin said students should also be proficient in the use of English as well as participate in English language activities in schools, to enable them (students) to access language learning.

She said this is because English is a master language for students to ensure that they are able to communicate in the language as well as to prepare them for future challenges.

In this regard, Mistirine said schools, especially educators, play an important role in ensuring that students can master and be proficient in the use of English.

Her keynote address at the opening of the “Sabah High Level Empowerment (HIP) Carnival, Best Practice Sharing” programme was read by English Language Officer to the State of Sabah, Muarifin Sufian Mochoeri at the SMK Merpati here on Wednesday.

Also present were Sandakan Education Officer Haji Sharif Mahada Haji Sharif Attar and Elopura Assemblyman Calvin Chong.
