Critical analysis essay for the article “Picking the medium of instruction” by Napoleon G. Rama

 

It was on the 20th of August, 1995 when the article “picking the medium of instruction” was published with Mr. Napoleon G. Rama as its author. The said article was published on the Philippine panorama.

The article which is entitled”picking the medium of instruction “isn’t actually all about picking the medium of instruction.  But rather it was all about picking the best language as a medium of instruction that would make students learn better and faster. According to the article, schools or instructors must use the medium –such as language-that educates the student better and faster. Because as what the article said, when it comes to method of teaching , what matters is the language of instruction that would equip the students with a better and more valuable education more effectively.

In relation to that , Napoleon Rama-the author- pointed out that ”mastering English ,the net product of English as our medium of instruction, makes the Filipino students better educated”. But the author himself presented an argument- that would probably be in the mind of the reader -that contradicts the author’s stand. It was written on the 6th paragraph and it says “But are not all Chinese using Chinese as medium of instruction and the Japanese the Japanese language in their schools?” the author answered this question on the same paragraph saying that the Chinese and Japanese are “the most assiduous translators of the latest scientific studies and educational textbooks and magazines in English”. And he also stated that before there was a U.K or United States of America, Chinese was used in china and Japanese in Japan as medium of instruction.

On the 7th paragraph, the author gave a brief preview on how English came about as our medium of instruction. It was in this paragraph that Mr. Rama mentioned the coming of the Americans in the Philippines together with public school system and the English language as a medium of instruction. He wrote that “it was not the Filipinos that neither installed the public school system nor mandated that English should be the medium of instruction. It was our colonizers, the Americans.” The author had written too that what we Filipinos should do is to know which legacies are good for us and should be retained and which shouldn’t be, since there is little we can do about it. In addition, Napoleon Rama wrote on his article that not all imported and imposed cultures are bad with which he stated that “part of our infrastructure of English is the large segment of Filipinos who know English”. At the end of the 7th paragraph the author again wrote about his main topic which is “which language of instruction can provide better, more effective education to the youth.”

Napoleon Rama’s answer to this question was supported by the preceding last paragraphs. On the 8th paragraph he wrote that with English as the language used in libraries encyclopedias an other written works of literature ,”there is no way that the students could learn faster than in English.” It was also written in the article that even the newspapers are written in English since the start of the century. An example of this was the Manila Bulletin that was founded in 1990.

That is why on the 9th paragraph the author wrote that instead of resenting the prevalence of English in our country, we ought to thank our ‘stars’ for winning in what the author called as the lottery of the history, the language of the world and education. It was because as said on the 10th paragraph that “surveys show that Filipinos learn faster with English as medium of instruction, both at the lower levels and in higher education”. According to the article “those with a better command of English are ahead of those with less proficiency , be it in the practice of their profession, in getting jobs, in getting ahead of life and in international commerce and business.” But the advantages of being good in English aren’t exclusive only for the Filipinos, but also with the other nationalities. This statement was proved at the same paragraph where it says “Malaysia’s Mahathir was persuaded that English as medium of instruction, as it was before, produces better-educated Malaysians faster.” After presenting the proofs, Napoleon Rama gave some clarifications regarding his stand. On the latter part of the paragraph 10 he wrote that students must master the English grammar and idioms, speak English fluently and correctly not just understanding it. In order to do so, Mr. Rama wrote that we Filipinos must have English as our medium of instruction at all levels as this is what our experience tells us.

As conclusion, the author wrote at the last paragraph of the article,” Mastering English is like earning a college degree, a bonus, and a valuable asset in life.” He also added that some Filipinos can’t help but be proficient in English simply because the school where they came from has English as a medium of instruction.

Overall the article “picking the medium of instruction” of Napoleon G. Rama is quite informative and somehow argumentative due to the usage of the word s like “contention” in the article.

The topic or thesis of the whole article is early presented at the first few paragraphs. Although obviously the ideas on the first four paragraphs are somewhat the same, all of them talks about “what makes or what method of instruction makes a student learn faster and better.

What is good about the organization of the article is that, the proofs are clearly stated and the supporting ideas are written after the argument was stated. At first there will be some confusion as to where the author is trying to put his ideas but after a thorough re-reading of the whole article everything will be presented in their proper places.

With Napoleon Rama’s style of presenting his work, anyone who reads it may easily fall into Napoleon’s words. The way he organized and styled his article made every detail clear to the reader. The only part maybe that made the article weak or dull is the repetition of ideas. At some ways, repetition of ideas are accepted if it aims to keep the readers IN track of the author’s Train of thought .in the case of this article, the idea that “there must be a way or thing that’ll help students learn faster and better” was repeated many times especially on the first four paragraphs. But on the 8th paragraph the repetition of the same idea was intended to ‘refresh’ the reader of what Napoleon Rama is trying to say.

The author somehow stated in this article to which the article is intended to be addressed. The frequent use of the term “Filipinos” gave the reader an assumption that the author’s intentional audiences are the Filipinos. Even though the author won’t mention the term Filipinos the readers would assume that the author’s subject and or audience, would be the Asians because of the use of the names of other neighboring Asian countries.
