Where to learn Malay?

Post by Singapore-newbie » Mon, 02 Apr 2007 4:56 pm

Hey everybody,

as I am very new to Singapore I am still exploring what things to do here. One of the things I came up with is to take a language course, Malay seems to be a good choice as it is one of the official languages here, not too hard to take up (as compared to Chinese :wink: ) and is spoken in Malaysia and Indonesia as well.

I did some research on the internet, but could not get hold of useful information on Malay language courses in Singapore. Can anybody recommend a school or help me with getting better information?

Thanks a lot!

Malay is soo easy to pick up..why dont you try conversing basic words with someone first and let the person correct your mistakes.

School wise you might wanna try Lingua or Cmabridge.I usually go to the library and get books. :)

What about the community centers? Don't they offer Malay language courses?

hi there,

why not try joining the indonesian food outing?

lots of indonesians *obviously*, malaysians, and singaporeans there.
though we speak english most of the time so that everyone is comfortable, it'll be a good start for you to pick few malay language there :)
