S. Baba, M. Yusoff

University of Malaya (MALAYSIA)
Malaysia has opted the use of English in schools, although limiting this to the subjects of English Teaching of Mathematics and Science (ETEMS) since 2003. To achieve this instruction in a second language, a wide range of supports are offered to teachers and learners, whose proficiency in English may be limited. These supports include materials, technology used in teaching and learning process, in-service training, support from internal especially English teachers and technology technical support, mentoring by senior teachers, English for Science and Technology as an examination subject, and the fostering of a positive attitude to both English and the Malay language. Infact the support from industry and private educational institution to enhance the ETEMS were widely accepted by the schools in boosting the programme. A qualitative research had been carried out to an urban school with different background of students’ and school culture gave an impact to the cobweb support in achieveing the ETEMS objectives. Data from focus group and individual interview, observation and texts ( daily lesson plan, students work) are analysed using NVivo 9 ( computer aided qualitative research analysis software-CAQDAS) thus smoothing the iterative process of collecting and analysing while the study being carried out and the conclusions of the study had shown the ETEMS had been support by various parties within school, industry and educational departments.
