Taiwan is not an English Speaking Country. In today’s society, if you don’t have a bilingual ability, you will be at a disadvantage when it comes to applying for university or even a job in the future. It is recommended for parents to arrange their children to go abroad as early as possible because even in Middle school, the child’s Chinese Language is already very good. Entering the English speaking environment during this period will not affect the children’s Chinese proficiency. At the same time, they can learn English and build their English foundation earlier. We all know that non -native English speaking countries want to use English fluently, especially the spoken English. It is best to start learning from an early age because it will be more difficult to catch up or start learning when you get older.
In addition, when children are relatively young, they will not have any problems in adapting to the environment, and they will soon be able to integrate into the new environment and make new friends. Relatively speaking, older children will take a longer time to adapt .

Singapore is a big family that integrates many ethnic groups. The main ethnic groups are Chinese, Malays, and Indians. These cultural fusion scenes can be seen everywhere in Singapore. For example, people of all ethnic groups will celebrate the Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year) together. The Non-Chinese bus driver can speak fluent Chinese, Chinese families go to Indian restaurants to meet and eat, etc. Therefore, it is safe to say that every Singaporean will come to know and understand people from different backgrounds and culture to an extend one way or another.
Singaporean students have also been taught the importance of national integration, understanding their own national culture, and respecting different national cultures. Children who grow up in this environment will be better able to respect people and have a more international outlook.
