I was browsing Facebook and then I stumbled upon a post. So much rage coursed through my veins after looking at the pictures posted. SO. MUCH. RAGE.
How could something like this get published and sold to our school-going children?
I shudder to imagine what kind of adults they will become.
CONFIRM BLUR LIKE SOTONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!
First things first, please remember this book cover and avoid it like the plague:
Fortunately, the parents who bought the book in the Facebook post are educated enough to know that the proverbs have been lost in translation but what about parents who are not so educated?
What’s the point of getting educated if the quality of education is horrifically subpar? How can these children improve and be better than the previous generations??
This is appalling!
To show how bad the translations are, I’ve taken to re-translate the malay translations myself and put in the correct ones too.
I had so much anger while doing this, so if you spotted any mistake please let me know in the comments below, thank you!
Last but not least, this is the publisher of said abomination…BOYCOTT!
