Where Should You Study in Singapore? | 新加坡有哪些学习的地方?

大家好!想必你们多数人都应该像我一样,无法在家里专心学习。当然,如果能够在家专心学习,也甚好!身为前者,我经常会选择去外面学习。大概是因为家里太多让我分心的事,其次也是因为换个环境,能给我带来新鲜感。因此,我喜欢在外头学习。今天,我将会分享几个适合学生党学习的地方。就算你能够在家里学习,知道这些地方的存在也是个好处!

Hey everyone! I’m not sure about this, but I believe there are many of you who are like me, unable to focus on studying at home. Of course, if you can, then that’s a very good thing! However, I prefer to study outside. The main reason being that there are too many distractions at home, and the other being that it’s good to have a change of environment, which I like. Today, I’ll be sharing different places where students can study in Singapore. Even if you are able to study at home, it doesn’t hurt to know these places! Let’s dive in!

P.S. These places generally have sockets and wifi to meet your technological needs!

#1 National Library @ Orchard

新加坡大多数的图书馆都有提供桌椅给大家办公或学习。图书馆的区别不大,乌节路这间也不例外。但是,如果你问我为什么会推荐乌节路这间图书馆,那是因为它不仅美,而且大。所以,在青少年当中,这图书馆非常受欢迎。环境舒适、应有尽有,资料丰富都让这件图书馆在众多图书馆当中脱颖而出。除此之外,当你学习学累了的时候,你还可以到处逛逛,找书本读。

不仅如此,乌节路这个地方很大。相信大家都知道,学习虽然重要,但休息也很重要。当你完成了工作或功课后,你还可以到附近的商店逛逛,也可以找个地方吃饭。这样一应俱全,又方便的地方,谁能够拒绝!不过,大家要注意,如果可以早到,就尽量早去。就如我前面所提,这是一所受欢迎的图书馆,因此去的人很多。若你晚到的话,那你可能就找不到座位了。

Most, if not all of the libraries in Singapore, provide areas for people to study or work. They don’t have much differences either, but if you were to ask why the one at Orchard, it would simply be because of its space and its looks. Amongst youngsters, this would probably be one of the hottest studying spots in Singapore. With resources in the form of books, comfortable seats, I don’t believe anyone could ever reject a place like that! Additionally, if you’re tired after studying or doing work, you can roam around and grab a book to read.

Orchard Road is a huge area. I believe many of you know that as important as studying is, rest is a must. Once you’ve finished your work or done studying, you can walk around the area or find a place to grab some food. Who could reject such an all-rounded place, where you can find everything! However, do remember that if possible, try to reach early. As I’ve mentioned earlier, this is one of the more popular libraries. Hence, many people visit it. If you’re late, you might not be able to find a seat!

#2 Lowercase @ LASALLE

Jocelyn Chinese Tuition Blog Post

这是一所隐藏在新加坡拉萨尔艺术学院的咖啡厅。身为一所咖啡厅,食物是一定会有的!去过的朋友告诉我,那里的菜单有很多选择,而且食物的味道都相当不错哦。甚至有些人到那里只是为了能品尝他们的食物。不仅如此,听说还不会被驱赶!喜欢在外头读书的人应该都有过这种经历吧。当你读书读到到一半,或工作到一半时,工作人员就会来把你赶走。但这里的人不会把你赶走哦。只是,大家如果想去的话,得早一点,因为那边常常聚满了人!

不过,还是有一件事我想提醒各位。由于疫情还在持续,我并不确定Loercase现在是否开放。网上搜索出的结果是,只开放给打包的人,可我因为不是该校的学生,无法确定。因此,大家如果想去逛一逛,要有心理准备,因为它不一定会开放给学校外的游客。

This is a hidden cafe in LASALLE College of the Arts, though I’m sure most of you have heard of it. As a cafe, good food is definitely a part of it! According to my friends who have been there, the food is pretty decent, with a huge variety of choices. There are even some people who go just for the food. Not only this, I heard that nobody will chase you out! Those who love to study or work outside would definitely have the bad experience of being chased out whilst working halfway. Though if you want to go, do remember to go earlier in the day where it is not as crowded!

Unfortunately, there is something I have to let you guys know. Due to COVID-19, I’m not actually sure if it’s open to visitors. What I saw online is that they only allow takeaways for now, but as I’m not a student there, I’m unable to confirm this. As such, if you want to go, do be mentally prepared that it might not be open to outsiders!

Address: LASALLE College of the Arts, Blk D #01-01, 1 McNally St, 187940

#3 Hubquarters @ SCAPE

SCAPE 在新加坡是一个让许多青少年聚在一起的地方,其中包括个HubQuarters。简单而言,它是一所针对青少年的共享办公室。根据官方网站,HubQuarters 不仅是办公室,更是那些有想法的年轻企业家的交流平台。也就是说,除了是一间办公室,HubQuarters也是一个社交地点。因此,如果你是年轻的企业家,并且很有想法,这是一个你可以考虑前往的地方!

如同上一个地点,我必须先告知你们,我也不确定这里还在开放。虽然疫情的影响不小,但随着疫情放缓,新加坡也在慢慢开放。所以,这些公共场所逐渐开放也不在话下。可是,如果并未开放,大家也别太气馁。相信在不久的将来,这些地方就能像疫情之前似的,照常开放。不仅如此,我也提供了其他公共场所,大家也可以参考哦!

SCAPE is a place for youngsters in Singapore to gather, and HubQuarters exists in it. To put it simply, it’s a co-working area for youngsters. According to their official website, the HubQuarters is not only a co-working area, but more for like-minded young entrepreneurs to socialise. If you’re a young entrepreneur with interesting thoughts and ideas, this is definitely a place to check out!

Just like I mentioned above however, I’m not really sure about the COVID-19 measurements put in place for this area either. COVID-19 has indeed affected us strongly, but with some hope and how things are getting better, Singapore is also slowly easing up on its measurements. Hence, for places like this to start opening up, it shouldn’t be too far away. If it’s not open though, don’t be disappointed as I have shared with you other places to visit too!

#4 Starbucks/The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (TCBTL)

Jocelyn Chinese Tuition Blog Post

像“星巴克”和“咖啡豆与茶叶”等咖啡厅在新加坡想必也是大家常去的落脚处。据我所知,如今这种咖啡厅,就像麦当劳一样,无所不在,几乎每个商场都会有一间。尤其是近年来,大多学生越来越喜欢喝咖啡,比如:黑咖啡已经成为了这几代人的必点饮品。不过,也正是因为这些地方成为了学生们的热点,导致了它们常常都挤满了人。因此,大家如果想在这种咖啡厅找到座位的话,就得早一点去。

作为一所咖啡厅,这些地方的食物品质就更不用说了。无论是咖啡还是糕点,都不会令人失望。我知道,身为学生,长期在这种咖啡厅消费可能会比较贵,毕竟学生的生活费也不多。但是,你们可以考虑在他们这些店里办一张会员卡,等待折扣!例如,星巴克常常会有买一送一的活动,你们可以和朋友一起去。一杯咖啡的钱两人分,就不会太贵了!地址我就不留了,毕竟如我所说的,很多地方都能找得到这些咖啡厅!

Cafes like Starbucks and TCBTL are probably one of the most common places for all of us to work and study at! According to what I know, these stores are just like McDonald’s currently. They are everywhere, in almost every neighbourhood, every mall. Especially in recent years, where students are starting to love all sorts of coffee, even black coffee, these stores are becoming popular. As these stores become popular, they are often filled with people. Hence, if you’re looking to grab a seat at one of these places, remember to go early!

As a cafe, the food is of a definite standard. Regardless of their beverages or desserts, they are sure to not disappoint! However, I know that as students, stores like this may become too expensive for you in the long run. You can consider getting a membership card at their stores and wait for a discount! For instance, Starbucks constantly offers their members one-for-one offers, where you guys can share with your friends two cups of coffee for the price of one, which should be more affordable! I shall not leave any addresses since the stores are mostly all around us, so just drop by any that’s near you!

#5 Community Centres

大家应该都认识你们自己邻里的民众联络所吧!那么,你们知不知道,其实联络所里面多数都有自己的书房。在我附近的联络所,有一间真正的书房。里面有民众捐出的书本,同时也有一些桌椅供大家使用。环境不仅舒适,基本设备也都齐全。唯一的缺点是只有Passion Card会员可以进入。不过,这也只是我这里的联络所。至于你们自己的联络所,还得自己去查看。

你们千万别觉得在联络所的学习区或书房学习不好。要知道,想达到最高效率的学习或办公,不是靠多美的环境,而是靠齐全的设备和舒适的环境。而恰好,联络所里的学习区与书房都符合这个条件。大家有兴趣的话不妨试试,有可能以后你们机会成为联络所的常驻客了!

I believe all of you know that your estates have a community centre, right? Well, did you know, in most community centres, there’s actually a study room or area? In my estate, it’s an actual study room with books donated by the community, along with tables and chairs for everyone to use. The environment is comfortable, with the basic equipment for studying or working! The only downside would be that I believe it requires a PassionCard to enter. Though this applies to my estate, I’m not sure if it does to yours, so you would have to check it out on your own!

I know it seems a little too plain and basic, but let me assure you, it’s not a bad place. To reach maximum efficiency, often you only need reliable equipment, and a conducive environment, which your community centres offer! As such, do give it a try, and who knows, you may become a regular “customer”!

总结

无论在什么地方,大家都要记住,学习好与坏完全取决于个人努力。良好的环境只是你学习的辅助,属于锦上添花。若不努力,再好的环境也只是摆设。希望大家记住哦!下次见,拜拜!

Wherever you decide to study, I urge you to remember that the very foundation of your studies is the amount of effort you put in. A good environment only acts as a support. Without effort, even the best view you get will only be wasted. Till next time, bye!
