Yo, you guys are so cruel, yet so honest!
Let me get some facts for you:
A family in Taiwan I knew sent their 10-year-old girl to Singapore for English Summer camp since S’pore publicly claimed that “English is S’pore’s official language”. The camp was located in some sort of resort which means it’s not affordable for general S’porean public. This family is not wealthy by any Taiwanese standard but was able to send the kid to summer camp in the States last year. After 10 days in paradise, the kid said she spoke not much English in S’pore than she did at home! :shock:
Don’t get me wrong, I have a few S’porean friends, but I don’t think their English is up to the standard of any English-speaking countries, such as U.S., UK, or Australia. However, I have to hand it to them - some of them does great PR and promotion. They are loads of parents eager to send their kids to S’pore to study since not many of them woud check out the facts first.
Hopefully I don’t get put on some black list (if I have not already on it!)
