     Ke Qin is a great teacher, very friendly and really goes the extra mile for her students by thinking of ways we can improve ourselves outside class. She is not just a teacher but also a coach on how to speak more Mandarin! Ee all look forward to coming back each week to her class.

     My 9-month- long Chinese course in Inlingua is now over. I dare say I have made a great improvement, because I started from the very beginning “ni hao”.

    I think great thing about learning Chinese in Inlingua is that you get to practice and review a lot. For me, memorizing new vocabularies always has been a problem in learning a new language. I felt that the materials that I learned in each lesson is just the right amount. I had enough time to digest the meaning and usages in class. This allowed me to have less pressure and prevented me from giving up learning Chinese. In fact, I think I may have developed more and more interest in them!

    Teachers put a lot of effort in making sure that students understand the materials. For instance, they review a lot and especially, make you to use the vocabularies, or structures to form a sentence. I think this really helped me to grasp the meaning and sometimes it made me realize that I actually did not understand it after all.

    In Inlingua, classes are not that big so that the students can get the appropriate amount of attention from the teachers. Smaller class, more attention from teachers, more chance of speaking and practicing!

    Last, but not least, the staffs at Inlingua are VERY nice and friendly. Also, I got as much help as a foreign full time student can get from the staffs. Staffs also occasionally arrange some events like barbeque party, or going on a walk, etc., which is a great chance of getting along with students in other classes.

    Overall, I am very satisfied with my experience in here.

    Thank you so much Inlingua!

    Chi Yeon K. | Full-Time Chinese Course | 2017 



    I wanted to learn English and Chinese in a foreign country during my university's spring vacation for 2 months. So firstly, I chose Singapore. Then I searched (for a) language school and decided to learn at inlingua.

    There were many students from many countries. In my English class, students were from Spain, Poland, Thailand, Taiwan, Korea and Japan. It was my first time learn(ing) English with foreign people, the differences of culture and the way of thinking were really interesting. I found that foreign people (may) know about Japan better than me!!

    I learnt English for first 1 month, and I spent my last 1 months for Chinese.
    My Chinese teacher taught me Chinese in Chinese, but they explained about difficult grammar or sentences in English. My classmates were from Thailand and India, so we helped each other in English when we had questions. We could communicate in English trying to use Chinese words. That was (a) very good point for me because I think this helped me a lot to to increase my English ability, not only Chinese.

    I could also meet many Japanese (here).
    For me, I think I couldn't enjoy my time in Singapore if my Japanese friends were not kind to me.

    And there is also (an) important thing to say... inlingua has many opportunities to communicate with your teachers in addition to lessons. All of them are really kind to students. The Receptionists and Admissions Executives too. For example, they told me how to take a bus or about good restaurants in Singapore.

    Singapore has many good places to visit, there are very tasty food and people have great energy. It's a good place to learn language. If possible, I'd like to go back to Singapore and inlingua right now.

    inlingua gave me a great opportunity to meet and communicate with many people from many countries. It's my lifetime treasure.

    KOTOHA | Full-Time English and Chinese Course | 2014



    In three months, I learnt a lot about Chinese culture and customs apart from nuances of the Chinese language. Friendly and helpful teachers and support staff, a liberal study atmosphere and an extremely well-structured course all added up to a wonderful study experience.

    The well-defined lessons and appropriate assessment sessions considerably simplified my learning experience (even for someone like me - with no significant background in the subject), but even better was the perceptible change in my attitude towards learning that I felt throughout the course.

    I strongly recommend any prospective student to pursue a program at inlingua singapore because I believe it will bring about a remarkable change in perspective and attitudes towards learning, which will stand them in good stead all trough their future endeavours in life.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my study here and wish to thank everyone for making it such a memorable one.

    SATHYA | Intensive Chinese Course | 2013



    quotation-markThe Chinese class is highly conversational and interactive. Every student will get a chance to speak up in class and practice what they have learned. This way, I eliminated my fear of speaking a foreign language and become more confident in my Chinese. Overall, I have a very pleasant experience learning Chinese in inlingua!

    I am very grateful studying at inlingua (in) Singapore. I have a very good experience with (my) Chinese teacher, staff and environment here. Thank you all for being part of my good time here.

    NATHIYAH | Full-Time Chinese Course | 2013



    quotation-markI attended 2 mandarin modules at Inlingua nearby Somerset MRT. The courses were taught in small groups and the teachers made it really interactive, fun and easy to learn. The class usually begins with a revision of the last one and you have to do exercices at home for the next one so that you progress quite quickly through the different topics covered in a module. Studying material contain exercices, texts and vocabulary list. Pros: not too expensive, small groups, fun Cons: wish the material was richer in content and that an audio CD was provided to practise at home

  • Japanese


    I am amazed how engaging and devoted my teacher (Fumi) is! I am so happy with the lesson experience.

    Sherri T. | Part-Time Japanese Course | 2017



    Overall my class and teacher (Fumi) was a very encouraging environment for me to learn. It was not stiff and focused only on just academic but on the practicality of learning the language as well. my teacher was also very kind to provide supplement materials to further enhance our learning such that we can learn in a functional manner.”

    quotation-markEffective learning, friendly and approachable teacher!

    Jane G. | Part-Time Korean Course | 2017




     Love the course! Excellent material and my teacher is super competent! We learn a lot and lessons are fun as we do role-plays and interactive activities. Timing is perfect as it's after working hours and the location is convenient. Plus: good value for money (Book + CD included), lessons are in Korean only, we speak a lot, convenient location. Minus: homework! :-)

    CHERYL | Part-Time Korean Course | 2013 Source: Yago



    quotation-markTook three courses in Korean and was very satisfied with the methodology and the material given. Lessons are very interactive with role plays and fun activities. The teacher was great and we learnt a lot. I can still remember was I was taught. I pity work took most of my free time during the week, but I'm considering joining another course on weekends. Apparently there are courses available on Saturday. I will certainly recommend taking a course at inlingua. Good value for money and good learning environment.

  • Malay

    Friendly and approachable teacher (Asiah) who is well-liked by her students. Patient and dedicated, she took the time to answer our class's questions in detail, often supplementing the course notes with her own materials and activities. Her smile (and treats!) never failed to brighten our moods. Taking this Malay course has been a true joy because of her. She is truly 'bagus' (excellent)!

    Wai Kit O. | Part-Time Malay Course | 2017



     Nurul is patient and helpful. She encourages us to ask questions and is engaging. Class is enjoyable and the teaching is clear.

    Susan S. | Part-Time Malay Course | 2017



    Cikgu Asiah is a patient teacher and I have enjoyed her lessons. She goes an extra mile to give good explanation and good examples in relation to the topic so as to enhance our understanding of it. Thank you Cikgu Asiah.

    Irene T. | Part-Time Malay Course | 2017



     Mdm Asiah (Harun) is a wonderful teacher! She put in a lot of effort into helping us learn Malay with tips and tricks, extra information, personalised statements specific to our occupation and lives. She brings extra materials to enhance our learning experience, and goes above and beyond what is expected of a teacher.

    Nicole W. | Part-Time Malay Course | 2017



    I just came back from my first class after impulsively taking the class after finding this Malay class here on Yago. I am really glad I did. The school is located right beside the Somerset MRT so it was easy for me to get to. This place is only 5 minute walk from the station. I also liked the small class size. We currently have 8 people in our class. Most importantly, our teacher Izwan was great. I had a great time learning. Can't wait for class #2. If there is a negative, I was told today that they will be having two written and one oral exam. Exams I could do without.

  • Thai

    Our Thai teacher Rasa Salakij makes every single lesson very interactive and exciting. She is very approachable and helps every student to achieve their best and fluency in the language. Her methods are very effective to make Thai as a new language very engaging and easy to learn and to remember, which greatly enables the students to speak with confidence and proficiency. Big thumbs up to Rasa!

  • Vietnamese


     Mrs Teh (is) very good.

    Wong K. W. | Part-time Vietnamese Course | 2017



     Learning a foreign language is a challenging task...

    but the school and the teachers make it simple for us to understand...(special recommendation to Teacher Linh).

    Learning the language from.. [native speakers] is one of the key points why I chose inlingua. Thank you!

    Maurice | Part-time Vietnamese Course | 2015



     I want to say a big “thank you” to our Vietnamese teacher and the other staff at inlingua. Our teacher sparked our interest in Vietnamese and made each class very enjoyable through games and interaction. Furthermore, she is a native speaker and is able to educate us about how the various parts of Vietnam have different slang (e.g Hanoi vs HCM).

    In addition, she is very patient, encouraging and always approachable (even outside lesson time) whenever we have any questions. The classes are not too large and allowed the teacher to focus on each and every student. The course is structured and the materials provided are good for revision

    TH | Part-time Vietnamese Course | 2015



    To pick up a new language can be very challenging from my previous experiences. However, inlingua has changed my perspective. The interactive and passionate teaching by Linh has made learning much more enjoyable, classroom facilities are also well maintained with great accessibility...right in town... Highly recommended!
