There are two options:

Get a private tutor (starting from 40.00 SGD/hour) - private tutor call 90286685. This lady has too many students already but she has a lot of native chinese friends she can recommend.

Or join a course

I had always wanted to the the course at NUS National University of Singapore.

Elementary Chinese I

Chinese Language - Mandarin Level I

This is a Beginners’ Mandarin course imparting students with general knowledge of the characteristics of the Chinese language, including its writing system and phonological, morphological, lexical and syntactical features. Students are introduced to the Hanyu Pinyin System (consonants, vowels, four tones, neutral tone) for pronunciation of the Chinese characters which shall be translated using English language.

Students will learn at least 17-20 Chinese characters per lesson and at the end of the course, they will be able to comprehend and use 200 Chinese characters.

An indonesian friend of mine went to her without any knowledge of chinese. And now he is able to understand the people speaking in chinese. cool huh. from zero knowledge to being able to understand chinese conversations. The tutor is contactable at or 96759486 ya.
