A verbal battle
Wherever you go in Singapore, you are bound to be pelted by Singlish. Music to some, a bane to others, Singlish phrases continue to draw motley reactions. A lingo that only few foreign visitors can truly understand, Singlish has continued its epic journey across the local potpourri of cultures and beyond – earning a spot in the Oxford dictionary! In the entertainment scene, Singlish continues to be a money-spinner. From local clubs and corporate events to the numerous online videos, artists and net-savvy kids continue to draw interest with the banter.
But what about the brick and mortar commercial viability of Singlish outside Singapore? There is no denying the diatribe continues to intrigue and befuddle the foreign audience. While Singlish continues to make inroads in society, the degradation of English heaps worry on parents schooling kids locally – and what this entails for them overseas. Hence the growing need to find good English tuition.
Why this website?
My education is not typical of the local paper chase. I schooled at the United World College of S.E. Asia. I went on to pursue science and engineering degrees at universities in England, and finished with a business degree from Australia. I have been well immersed in the English language, so I would call myself a native English speaker.
