Singapore is a cosmopolitan society where people live harmoniously and interaction among different races are commonly seen. There is marked cultural diversity in the country but the 4 main races are of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influences.
English is the first and most common language used in Singapore and is the language that unites the different ethnic groups. Children are taught in English at school but also learn their mother tongue to ensure they don’t lose contact with their traditions. Most children grow up bilingual from infancy and learn more languages as they grow up.
Singapore is well-known for its safe streets, great (and cheap) food diversity and strict laws. We are also just a few hours-flight away from other South East Asian countries such as Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia, the Phillipines and Vietnam…etc.
