"Due to the very high standard..." Singapore Favorite Tip by leonik

Singapore General: 441 reviews and 444 photos

Favorite thing: Due to the very high standard of education, annual 'Speak Good English' campaigns, majority of Singaporeans do speak impeccable English, especially the younger, newer generation!

Fondest memory: You may encounter the use of Singlish, spoken by about 70% of Singaporeans which blends standard English with words from other languages, dialects and borrows grammar from Mandarin. Our local lingo is often humourous to foreigners and confusing!
Do check out the Singlish travelogue by fellow VTer at www.virtualtourist.com/snowdrops535 for more information of Singlish usage.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
