Movie also is a great entertainment for peoples. Nowadays, many people love movies and going to the cinema for movie, especially the youngest generation. Cinema are attracted to people and they will be going to the cinema watching movie every week or twice a week for relaxing after day of work or study and this already become as a trend. Cinema is a nice place for entertainment, relax, enjoyable and fun for teenagers, forms a part of our leisure time because of today life has grown complex, full of worries and anxieties. Some of their life cannot without movie. Movie will teaching a lot for us that about life in the world. We are not only can learn and make our lives better and also learn reality in life from the movies. Movies also keep updated us and know the new information, famous and popular things, place or people around the world. A research shows (Levy, n.d) the vast majority (79 perecnt) of those questioned said, “Going to the movies is a good escape from everyday life.” A film can change people life become better or worse.
There have 9 types of movies are shown in cinema such as horror movies, romantic movies, drama movies, suspense movies, action movies, violence movies, comedy movies and documentary movies.
Despite the fact that, watching a movie not only can affects on moral values and cultures on people who are college students, scholar and children’s and also individual behavior. It can be influence in a numerous ways. The effects of movies are various, including weighing on elements of sex and race. Some of the peoples will influence their thinking, action and attitudes changes on some level by movies but movie has good influence for youth also.

In fact, movie has beneficial and harmful effect of media on youth. According to appendix A, the questionnaire and survey shows 21 out of 30 are said that teenagers like to go cinema, others are neutral and disagree. In the other hand, 13 out of 30 are said that movie will influence the behavior and attitude of teenagers in general. Many of parents will control their children going to the cinema for movie or watching film in the house. The reasons of their parents’ control them because they worry their child influence bad attitude and moral influence from movie like smoking and fashionable such as hairstyle and wearing. Cinema would be easily influence teenagers’ attitude and thinking, they will change their mind. They would change their habits and try to imitate their favorite stars hairstyle, wearing and attitude. For example, some of the children they would learn smoking from the movie. Violence movie will influence teenagers whose mine are childish. They will try to imitate like gangster and doing bad things. Example damage people house and cars fight with others people, bullying and vandalism. Romantic movies also will affect youth thinking and behavior. After youth watch a romantic movie, the percentage of early married will increase because the end of the movie is the best.
Many people agree watching movie on weekends but teenagers, scholar, student and college student who spend too much on watching movie will be addicted and tend have sedentary lifestyle. They will not only influence their cultural, lifestyle and homework and also physical influence. Physical influence means influence their health. They always stay at cinema or home watch movie and lack of doing exercise at outside to absorb a fresh air so that they will get fat and illness. Besides that, from the survey are said that 14 out of 30 said that the movie tickets are very expensive. It would be increase the expense of the parent. The survey are said that 16 out of 30 said that are disagree movies that are played more than 1 hour are wasting time. I am agreeing also because sometimes watching movie is not wasting time. That is giving us relax after working or study. Watching movie will keep updating us with the world what had happening and trend around the world. The questionnaire shows that movie will not affect relationship like family relationship, friends and couple relationship. I am agreeing movie is a best way to improve relationship when they are sitting together watch a film because they can share and communicate about their feeling, opinion or thinking from the movie, especially family relationship. Parents should spend one or two hours for movie to accompany their children. From that, parents can know well what their children thinking and doing.
Furthermore, the questionnaire survey shows that 10 out of 30 are agree movies will help us to be more creative. 12 out of 30 are disagreeing with the movies help us to be more creative and 8 out of 30 are neutral. Movie is a mind-killer. It dulls you. In my opinion, watching movie will disturb youth mind while there are doing homework or finding a creative inspiration because most of the youth, even though is adult, they also will concentrate on movie more than their tasks. The survey of questionnaire shows that 13 out of 30 are agreeing movies will affect performance in education. Parents must be full of supervision because movies will affect youth examination result, affecting college students, scholar and children reading habit. However, movies can be a powerful teacher. Sometimes youth will learn harmony, cooperation, kindness though the movie. A recent article (Anon., 2003) states that high school programming promoting media have been shown too beneficial, they give students more understanding when learning. And also movies will help youth to improve their language.
Conclusion and Recommendation:
In the conclusion, my opinion, movie is harmful more than beneficial for youth. Movie has big power to affect youth thinking, attitude, behavior, habits, lifestyle, cultural and hobby, even though is an adult. In the cinema, violence movies shouldn’t band but less than 18 years old should prohibition watching violence movie in cinema so that can reduce youth imitate to be a gangster, doing a vandalism and the world may be reduce scum because under 18 years old their mind are still young, they can’t analysis what are right and wrong. For me, I am not agreeing every weekend going for movie that is not necessarily because tickets of the movies are expensive. It will increase parents’ burden. Sometimes parents should spend some times to accompany their children watching movie and control them do not spend too much time for movie although they are Study College or University because movie will influence their examination result. Watching movie is a great ways to improve relationship with family and friends, not only couple. It can know well each others for the movie. However, movies will giving us relax and entertainment after working or study. In addition, movie will improve youth language and communicating skill with others.

Dear Sir/ Madam,
Education Ministry to Support Teaching of Science and Mathematics in English
My name is Cheong Kar Mun, study Diploma in Business Management at Olympia College Ipoh. I am support teaching of Science and Mathematics in English. Early learning science and mathematics in English for children are extremely important.
2. Nowadays, English used widely and can be founded in everywhere. English are considering as the most important language of the world. Teachers teaching Mathematics and Science in English since student are young age, it will continue accessing knowledge even they after graduate their high school, especially in sector of science. Learning mathematics in English since their young age will give students ability to learn advances subjects like physics and chemistry. Knowing English can helpful for scholars can communicate ideas and research finding peers in their field. That is a lot of information are available in English from library or internet. Scholar interested in doing research at an academic level on new scientific developments so that the prime minister should consider the Science and Mathematics teaching in English. They can search their scientific knowledge to foreign people through internet. Students will find a lot of the latest science information. Furthermore, if students do not understand the teacher explanation and they faces the difficult question on their lesson, revision or project works so that students can search more information of science through network. Many of network those are about scientific information will use and explanation in English. I am support using English to teaching Science and Mathematics because student can more understand and solve their problem and research easily when they search information through network. Education in English since they are young age is easily for them continue their higher studies because many of universities are using English in teaching include local university and some of parents send their child to overseas like United Kingdom, United State and Australia so that they can easily get their teacher explanation and teaching.

3. The Star (2008) states that Science and Mathematics in English can help increase proficiency. Ministry of Education supposed to teaching Science and Mathematics in English when student Standard One. The aims of teaching Science and Mathematics in English can motivate students to learn English language efficiently and students will be used to English while communicate with other people and can speak fluent in English. Malaysia can improve their English level. The Star (2007) states that more of the people will speak in English than any other language, is the native language of more than 350 million people. Using English in education not only can motivate student speak English they still can learn more English words and proper grammar, new words and also focus on the scientific vocabulary. Students will improve their pronunciation. Some of the family they are using their mother tongue to communicate, if the school still using other language like Malay or Chinese to teach science and mathematics that would not be only cannot improve the standard of English and motivate them to learn English language, scientific vocabulary and also cannot speak fluent in English. If teaching in Malay language, student only can speak fluent in Malay and used to communicate with people in Malay, this should not be improving the ability of students to communicate in English. Lim Kit Siang (n.d) informed that the study found that fewer than 15 percent of teachers were fluent in English, and that most teach using a combination of both languages. Government should first train the teachers who are lack in English language only can improve the young generation English.
4. Teaching English and Mathematics in English not only pave the way for the youngest generation for student also very useful in their future, especially in science development. English language will help us and give us have confidence after graduate and it will bring for youngest generation a lot of challenges. Learning English language also is the key to our success. If we do it well in Mathematics and Science foundation in English language will have a lot of chances in job market are related Science and Mathematics because English is international language. Who are interested in accountant and having math foundation and higher math in English is useful of seeking accountancy job. In a business view, a international companies or corporation company will first consider and hire a employees are best, can speak well and write well in English and also dual language because they will easily communicate and doing a report with their clients those are in other foreign countries which they are do not know speaking in Malay or Chinese. However how excellent in the result is, if do not know and speak in English, that will always miss the job opportunities. Many of documents, report, projects, contracts, memo and emails are written in English, peoples are known in English it will easy to handle and understand the project or the job. The language of English has become internationally across the world especially daily communicating, business, science, technology, banking, medicine, computing, tourism and engineering. Speak well in English language in addition to native language can be beneficial if people are seeking job with international companies. They would not be communicating problem in workplace when they working. English language has become a basic requirement for students and job seekers will increasingly in globalised world. If can speak fluent in English will get the great job easy.
5. In addition, speak well in English like can much closer and more connected with the world. If when we going for travel at foreign country like United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia and so on so that we can get the travel become easier communicate with local people that may not speak any other language and it will be more enjoyable. Most of the banks, airports, and restaurant and hotel employees will communicate in English with customers and using English sign to guide you, especially 5 stars and above or high class restaurant. And the signboard of foreign country will write in English. Nowadays, not only in foreign country, it also in local country will communicate in English language in particular places like banks, high class restaurants and hotel.
6. In conclusion, my opinion teaching of Science and Mathematics in English must be continued for the betterment of future graduates and will practicing students English skills. Students will communicate in Malay, Mandarin and Cantonese language with their friends in the campus but they less using English to communicate so that I support using English to teaching Science and Mathematics because it will very helpful to train students used to using and learn English in the science and mathematics subjects. English language is the internationally language and would easy to search information of sector in science and mathematics. This is also a best way and the easy way to sew up the gap between the foreigners with us, especially science and mathematics development. In Malaysia, Malay language is the language to unite us while English language is important for us to stay relevant, intelligent, wise, positive, survive and successfully.
