As one of the four official languages of Singapore, English is widely used in everyday conversation, whether in business or casual settings. Mandarin Chinese follows as the next most often used language. Established in 2011, Alpha Language School is a bridge that connects non-English/Mandarin-speaking expatriates to multicultural Singapore. Our vision is to become the top language school in the country. Our mission is to provide fun and effective language courses for learners to feel at home in our cosmopolitan city.
Our Aims @ Alpha Language School
English is considered a global language, a necessary tool of communication for people of diverse backgrounds to live and work together. In recent years, Mandarin Chinese has also become an important language to learn for many people. As Asia’s one and only “English Society”, Singapore has been successful in equipping most of its citizens with proficient skills in not only English but the other three of our official languages, Mandarin Chinese, Malay, and Tamil.
Reflecting these national achievements and acknowledging the needs of the global market, Alpha Language School aims to arm our students with the necessary skills in English and Mandarin through select teaching methods and quality staff. We want our students to succeed in the business sphere, as well as to better adjust to and enjoy life in Singapore. Therefore, we also aim to be a platform for cultural exchange. We believe that engaging in discussion about different cultures will further enhance their language learning experience. More importantly, we believe that this will improve their ability to interact with people all around the world as they continue on their career paths.
Features of Alpha Language School
1. A Conducive Language Learning Environment
At Alpha Language School, we facilitate optimal language learning by keeping our students’ needs firmly in mind. Small classes allow teachers to better focus on students’ learning. Class content and teaching methods are adapted for each student according to their level of proficiency. With the understanding that many of our students have busy lives, we pride ourselves on our flexibility in arranging classes to best suit their schedules.
2. Experienced Teachers
Rest assured that our teachers follow a set of professionally designed teaching methods. While textbooks are used to structure some classes, we always emphasize student-speaking time during lessons. We also encourage students to repeat phrases and sentences in order to ensure proper pronunciation and to improve their fluency of expression. To maintain a high standard of teaching at our school, we greatly value students’ feedback about our classes.
3. Cultural Exchange
All students are welcome at Alpha Language School, whether they are new to the country or have lived here for a period of time. In our courses, we provide students with both the language skills and the cultural knowledge to work and live in Singapore. We also organize fun events around the city for students to further enrich their learning experiences and build rapport with our teachers.
