This unique course aims to let students experience, learn, and understand the Malay language and culture. The exposure and learning of the Malay culture will include traditional dressing customs, wedding ceremony and traditions, authentic traditional food, traditional dance and folk songs, traditional games and Silat (martial art).
In order to give students an in-depth understanding about the Malay culture, most of the lectures will be conducted outside the class, thus providing a blend in academic and experiential learning. Students are also expected to learn one or two movements of the well-known Silat which can be brought home and practised as a form of exercise.
