The official language in more than 70 countries
The English language, the world’s first lingua franca, is widely used in many countries as a universal working language. If you are considering a career in administration, government or medicine, media or computing, chances are you will be required to speak English. Regardless of where you are in the world.
English is recognized as the official language in more than 70 countries, including the USA, UK, Australia, Singapore, and other commonwealth countries. Together, these English-speaking nations form a formidable driving force, accounting for about 40% of the world’s total GNP.
In Singapore, English is one of the four official languages. One in five inhabitants in Singapore is born outside the country – therefore, spoken English is commonly used as the de facto working language at the workplace, in transactions and as the mainstream medium of educational institutions.
English Language Course in Singapore
With so many language schools in Singapore, how can you best choose an English course that will be suitable for you?
Determine what your objectives.
As basic English is spoken by more than a billion people, not everyone’s learning needs are 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.
