Optional Dhivehi subject will kill the language: expert

Making Dhivehi  an optional subject at A-level will erode and kill the language, according to Dhivehi language expert Abdulla Sadhig.

Miadhu reported Sadhig as saying that students who completed their secondary education learned very little of the language, particularly the grammar.

The subject were considered the “most boring” subjects among many students, Sadhig said, and it was more important to improve the quality of the teaching that to make the subject optional.
