Bilingualism in Singapore

Blog Posts relevant to O Levels A Levels Chinese students and Parents

Bilingualism is the cornerstone of our education system in Singapore. The government, too, recognizes the importance of bilingualism. In 2011, the Lee Kuan Yew Fund for Bilingualism was set up. This was in hope to gather proposals to promote bilingualism. With the Chinese Language becoming increasingly relevant, more are also finding it useful in corporate. Hence, it is important for Chinese Language students to have a strong foundation in the language. Here at our centre, we equip you with the language skills essential in the globalized world.
