BULAN BAHASA 2021 – A RESILIENT COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS THE MALAY LANGUAGE

 

Majlis Bahasa Melayu Singapura (MBMS or Malay Language Council, Singapore) invites everyone in the community to participate in Bulan Bahasa 2021, taking place from 14 August to 10 October this year. The official launch ceremony of Bulan Bahasa will be broadcast at 8.30pm on Mediacorp Suria, on Saturday, 4 September 2021.

Bulan Bahasa 2021 remains steadfast in its objective of engaging the Malay community to love and appreciate the Malay language, culture and heritage. This year, to ensure that the community remains safe and well, Bulan Bahasa partners will continue to present virtual events and digital programmes for all to enjoy.

“Having adapted to the pandemic and after presenting our first-ever virtual edition of Bulan Bahasa last year, our partners return stronger in 2021. Despite the many challenges and uncertainties that we continue to face, we witness the tenacity and dedication of our community through their passion for our Malay language. We have grown together as one and the resilience of our community is a strength we should be proud of,” says Mdm Rahayu Mahzam, Chairman of the Bulan Bahasa Committee 2021.

“We recognise that families in Singapore are comfortably bilingual, and the Malay language continues to be actively spoken at home, between generations and amongst families and friends. As a means of communication and a language of kinship, it is a way for us to remain connected to each other and our heritage.”
