Bulan Bahasa 2019
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.
As part of Bulan Bahasa, the Rakan Bahasa initiative is organised by the Malay Language Council, Singapore, to encourage students who are passionate about the Malay language and culture, to spread the love of the language to their peers, friends and families.
