2nd Language (CHINESE, MALAY & TAMIL)
Singapore being a multi-racial country, we have several other languages that make up our 2nd Language. They are mainly Mandarin, Malay, and Tamil. Each race will have its’ own unique lessons plans and curriculum. Ultimately, the aim is to develop students as proficient language users who can communicate in a confident and effective way. It is important to establish a strong foundation in terms of communication as many real-life scenarios require an instantaneous two-way communication among strangers. It is this form of communications that often lead to sharing of ideas and values which can be crucial in all aspect of life – be it in the business scene or sharing of knowledge in the research industry. There will be a larger emphasize on spoken and written interaction skills. Similarly, through the teaching of the 2nd Language, students will be exposed to culture and values which is the cornerstone of Singapore success in the modern society – moving ahead, yet remembering our humble roots and origins. Students learning 2nd Language will have a better sense of culture and respect for others.
