PENAMPANG: Vice President of United Progressive Kinabalu Organisation (UPKO) Datuk Ewon Benedick today received a courtesy call from Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI) Senior Lecturer of the Language and Communication Faculty Dr. Rosliah Kiting to discuss the programmes on the development of Kadazandusun language.


Ewon has agreed to continue supporting the efforts implemented by UPSI in strengthening the learning of Kadazandusun language, including by organising seminars, book publication and supporting the studies of UPSI students from the Kadamaian State Assembly who major in Kadazandusun Language.



He was also informed of the collaboration between UPSI and Nabalu News regarding the special virtual programme 'Let's Learn Kadazandusun Language' as an initiative to strengthen the learning of the mother tongue.

Both parties have agreed to hold a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) where he was invited as a guest to witness a brief signing ceremony next week.


Nabalu News Portal, a Sabah local portal run by a group of experienced journalists and editors in the journalism field, has started providing the Kadazandusun Language Learning section since February 17.


This column aims to provide opportunities for those who are interested in learning the Kadazandusun language, especially the younger generation of the Kadazandusun community.


This is one of the Nabalu News Portal's efforts to help the government uphold the mother tongue of the Kadazandusun community as well as display disseminate news from within and outside the country.
