Bilingualism is a practice the Ministry of Education rules every public school to abide by, where children are taught both English and their Mother Tongue. In my opinion, this is extremely practical and important to Singapore if she wants to remain competitive. Being a young nation of 50 years, Singapore needs to be relevant to other countries (achieved with English as her lingua franca) without neglecting her cultural roots.

Bilingualism has a huge part to play in Singapore’s speedy development, which includes her having the 5th highest GDP per capita in the world and we should definitely retain it. Although students often complain about the boredom of having to study Chinese in school (me included), I can confidently tell them now: live with it, it’s for your own good.

So, before any of you complain ‘Aiyo, I hate studying Chinese!’ Remember how powerful the PRC is
