In Singapore, English is one of the four official languages. One in five inhabitants in Singapore is born outside the country – therefore, English is commonly used as the defacto working language at the workplace or place of business, in transactions and as the mainstream medium of instruction in schools and educational institutions.

English Language Schools in Singapore

Singapore has a well-established reputation for excellent private educational institutions operating in Singapore, including language schools that undergo stringent prerequisites to ensure high standards of service are maintained at all times. As such, you will find that there are many competent English language courses and schools offered in Singapore where you can not only learn but gain proficiency in English.

Choosing an English Language Course in Singapore

With so many English language schools in Singapore, how can you best choose an English language course that will be suitable for you? 

First, determine what your English language learning needs are. 

As basic English is spoken by more than a billion people, not everyone’s learning needs will be the same. A “standardized” English course has a higher chance of ending up either too basic or too advanced for you.

The solution is simple.
