Singapore is a multilingual country with four official languages: English, Tamil, Chinese and Malay. English is widely spoken but when you are there, you should make an effort to learn some of the ‘mother-tongue’ languages as they are called. In a business and/or educational setting English is preferred, however at home, many Singaporeans still use Mandarin. Also, as English is not the main language used in homes, sometimes it may be difficult to understand so for ease of communication it would benefit you to pick up some Mandarin while you are there.
There are many language schools across Singapore with experienced teachers. Most schools offer lessons in Malay, Mandarin, French and other languages as well.
There are different types of instruction you can choose from if you decide to learn a new language. Firstly there are group classes offered at different language schools and even universities. Also, there are private lessons that could be done with a personal instructor; this of course is a more costly way to learn a new language, however the course will be more personalised and suited to your individual needs.
Here is a profile of only some of the language schools and centres that you can choose to learn a new language while you are in Singapore:
