It is never too late to learn a new language – especially if you are living abroad. When you are living in a foreign country like Singapore, it is always a good idea to know the local language and culture. After all, you would want to assimilate as quickly as possible. The more you learn about another nation’s culture, language and customs, the easier it will be for others around you to appreciate your efforts as well as feel like they can relate better with you on a personal level because of those shared experiences. If you want some help learning English vocabulary or practicing pronunciation skills, you can always sign up for English courses at School of Language International (SLI).
