I got an assignment about plagiarism on week 3.An article wrote by Aizuddin Danian on “Plagiarism among Malaysian students” catches my eyes. Basically, plagiarism is about a person who use or copy other person’s ideas without mentioning the rightful source.The author himself include a shocking but true fact about plagiarism. It is stated that back in 2003, a number of Malaysian student is caught plagiarizing while studying for an Australian university and the author himself had experienced a former classmate of him who plagiarized while studying.He also stated that the reason of Malaysian plagiarized is they were very poor in mastering the second language and they will eventually failed if they did not plagiarized.Aizuddin Danian also stated that the government should come with different outcomes to improve the second language used among Malaysian students to curb the plagiarism among Malaysian students.
