The new 2013 curriculum will introduce the Indonesian language subject not just as a medium for communication, but furthermore as a medium for developing the students’ thinking and reasoning skills, said Mahsun, head of the Ministry of Education and Culture’s Language Development and Supervision Agency. This is in line with the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) that puts emphasis on the role of language in influencing thought. Mahsun said the new textbooks, which were developed by a team of 32 experts for three months since December 2012, should be ready for printing in March.
