This is the buddhist fellowship in Singapore, lots of activities including meditation classes. Also go and listen to Ajahn Brahms' lectures when he's in Singapore, an excellent caucasian monk!

Ikoma language school in Orchard specialises in Japanese and Mandarin classes (I'm currently taking a Japanese course there).

I believe Parkmall also has a language school, NUS extension program of some sort, teaching various languages. 2 of my friends just started their beginner Mandarin class, twice a week, they seem to be enjoying it.
