Abstract

The problems of Malay language education in Patani, Southern Thailand is experiencing volatility in political developments in Thailand. The Malay language was once the most important language in Patani and was used in various official or unofficial situations. Malay became an important language in the cottage education system in Patani until Malay. Since Patani fell under the Siamese rule then changed the name of Thailand, the Malay language changed to the worst. The Malay language is not the main language in Patani's educational system but is simply a misleading subject in Islamic scholarship that is taught in government schools and becomes one of the mandatory subjects in Patani hut schools. However, the struggle to uphold the education of the Malay language has never been silent. In the late 2000s, which was an era of awakening, the education of the Malay language began to be observed by all groups including the Thai government. The Thai government has provided a wide opportunity for the use of Malay language, such as the use of Malay language in radio and television broadcasting, billboards, arrangement of Malay language courses, provision of Malay language instructors in several universities as well as bilingual school plans have been implemented in three southern Thai provinces.
