Right as the country settles down about the introduction of Khat in the school syllabus, our everyday Malaysians show us that being multilingual isn’t a problem.

A video of a Malay teacher and Indian student went viral recently for conversing in Mandarin.

In the short video, the teacher is heard giving feedback to the student on his homework in Mandarin.

She tells her student that “the rest looks good” while they discuss when to submit the homework.

Twitterjaya was full of praise for the pair.

Feel so proud watching this!

Others contemplated further expanding our education system to include learning all the common languages of the main races in Malaysia.

Can we add Mandarin and Tamil into all Sekolah Kebangsaan? It will be good for all citizens.

Our Mandarin teachers in school used to tell us to not be surprised if in the future, teachers of other races will be Mandarin teachers, since Chinese students themselves don’t want to take up Mandarin as a subject in school.

It’s a good reminder that we should never judge a book by its cover and that being multi-lingual is a really good skill to have.
