President Atambaev proposes to start compulsory learning of Kyrgyz language since kindergarten and first grade of school.
President of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambaev today proposed to start
compulsory learning of Kyrgyz language since kindergarten and first
grade in school. Every person should speak mother tongue, this is why
learning of the Kyrgyz language should start since the first grade of
school, President Atambaev said at the plenary session of the Parliament
on December 28. "All citizens should speak the state language. Of
course, it is hard to learn one more language in the years of
discretion, this is why learning of Kyrgyz language should start since
kindergartens, first grade of school since 1 September 2012. The
Ministry of Education should make all necessary arrangements - to supply
clear textbooks for schools," the President underscored. The
President said the present Kyrgyz language textbooks are unclear.
"I met with one Belgian, who learned the basic Kyrgyz language for
2 weeks. It is necessary to build the culture of learning Kyrgyz
language and languages of different people of Kyrgyzstan," he said.
The President added despite the country has over 50 universities, the
quality of education remains poor. "We fall behind with education
reforms," President Atambaevs said.
