Bulan Bahasa 2018

Bulan Bahasa (Malay Language Month) was first launched in 1988 by the Malay Language Council, Singapore, as an initiative to encourage the Malay community to embrace the Malay language in their daily lives. Users of the Malay language are heirs of the rich Malay language, and can ensure the continuity of the language through continuous usage.

From being a biennial event, Bulan Bahasa, since 2011, has become an annual event. The various activities of Bulan Bahasa have been created to promote and instil greater confidence in and mastery of the Malay language.

‘Ilmu. Budaya. Mesra.’

The Malay language as ‘Ilmu, Budaya, Mesra’ reflects its importance throughout all layers of society. When we use the Malay language, we are able to preserve knowledge and culture, as well as to foster ties that matter. Our language will also be conserved through its continued use, allowing us to pass it on to the generations after us.
