Singapore Language School ::

Which Singapore language school is best for you?

At times we get queries from people who would like to know which Singapore language school is best for them. The answer to that question really differs from person to person. We did a small survey to see what people consider most important when choosing at which language school to do their language course and found that the following three factors weigh almost equally to most respondents:

1. Quality of teaching
While maybe a no-brainer, quality means different things to different people, and thus different people will choose a different language school. I wrote earlier about a number of general points by which to recognise good language teaching, and while not guaranteed, most of these points come with the experience of the teacher. If a teacher has taught for a long time, they generally know the pitfalls well and know what works when explaining concepts. Experienced teachers are also likely to be more passionate, as they have obviously chosen teaching as their profession.

It's often hard to grasp the quality of the language school and its teachers from the outside. We are in the process of developing a website that will allow you to rate your school and give comments. So that you can find the best language school from other people who already took courses there.

2. Location
In the retail industry, the saying is that only three factors count: (1) location, (2) location and (3) location. and while it may not be quite as all determining for Singapore language schools, you will probably be going to the school at least once a week, so it better be in a place that is convenient for you.

In most cases, a convenient location means the language school is either close to your work / school, or close to your home. So where do you find out about schools close by? I plotted the Singapore language schools on a map on this page.

3. Timing
If you are working, you will be very constrained with your time for taking up a language course and can probably only make it in the evening or in the weekend. Then you'll also have to take into account that your course period does not interfere with holidays etc. So you may have to check first which language schools are at a convenient location for you and have acceptable quality ratings, and then see which can offer a class that works well with you for timing.

The conclusion you can draw is that to find the best course, you may have to compare more than one language school, to see which language school can really offer what is best for you.
