The Tamil language curriculum focuses on the speaking, reading, listening and writing skills of the students. In line with the Ministry of Education’s recommendation, greater emphasis is given to spoken Tamil. Teaching is designed to engage all learners actively and creatively in the learning of Tamil so that students develop an interest and love for the language. Students are encouraged to speak and write good Tamil and to read widely for knowledge. Internal and external competitions, and language and cultural activities are organized by the Tamil department to enrich students in the Tamil language and culture.
