THE Language and Literature Bureau (DBP) has concluded its Malay Oratory Workshop on a high-note yesterday at the DBP Library in Berakas. The workshop was organised as part of DBP’s efforts to enhance and uphold the essence of the Malay aspect of the Malay Islamic Monarchy (MIB) concept,
Present to officiate the closing ceremony was Awang Hatnan bin Haji Bujang, Head of the Language Development and Expansion Section at the DBP, representing the Acting Director of DBP Awang Suip bin Haji Bujang.
The two-day workshop was an initiative by the DBP to grant educational officers with in-depth insights on the art of oratory – particularly targeting those in the secondary, college, government and private institutional levels of education.
In addition to that, the workshop underlined methods of effectiveness of delivery in oratory competitions in line with the regulations in preserving the pride of the Malay language as the nation’s official language.
Techniques and guidance in effective ways to improve the quality of oratory within the local education were brought into discussion during the workshop – essentially providing participating educational officers with various approaches in expanding the quality of oratory, as part of their respective curriculums.
Divided into eight sessions delivered by several educational speakers, the workshop was attended by some 60 educational officers who gained better understanding on improving the oratory skills.
The DBP will be hosting a district-level Malay Oratory Competition in conjunction with the 2014 Language Month for students from across the higher secondary, government and private institutional levels.
