Completely agree with ginfreely. I did English Literature at A levels and in the class, I had classmates who did not come from English speaking household who scored pretty good grades. IMHO immersion is the best way to learn a language but really with TV, radio and the Internet, one can pick up any language at a very basic level. My two girls are K-pop crazy and they picked up Korean language by just watching the drama (which they know I am not happy about) and listening to the music. And today they speak to each other in whatever Korean words they know and just learnt; I think it's just hilarious.
Taking English literature at A level is as close to learning English as a SUBJECT as one can be haha... Yeah lor people from non English speaking household were always at disadvantage with the emphasis on English but no choice it is an important subject and we must put in the extra effort to pull through...

Huh?? Really? Is there a rule for Sgrean kids to study until PSLE??
Can share the link to this requirement, please?

MOE guideline is that if your kid is a Singaporean it's compulsory to send your kids to school all the way to PSLE. If the kid resides overseas, which they classify Johor as overseas, it's ok for you to send them to a school in the country where the kid resides in.

Any body doing home schooling ?

Anybody considering local schools ?
Just did a search and found some links here

But it should be noted that homeschool centres are not exactly homeschooling in the literal sense of the word. It's more like private schools.

Paramount to spend RM40m on smart school in Nusajaya

26 March 2008, By Yantoultra Ngui Yichen, The Edge Daily

PETALING JAYA: Paramount Corporation Bhd plans to spend some RM40 million on capital expenditure (capex) to build a Sri KDU smart school at East Ledang in Nusajaya.

Group managing director and chief executive Datuk Teo Chiang Quan said the construction of the private school would start in October and the school would open its doors by 2011.

“This is in line with Paramount’s philosophy to provide affordable quality education to everyone,” he said after Paramount’s unit Janahasil Sdn Bhd inked a sale and purchase agreement with UEM Land Sdn Bhd to buy a four-hectare land in Nusajaya for RM13 million for the smart school.

Teo said Paramount, with Kolej Damansara Utama (KDU) as its flagship in the education sector, had the option to buy another 6ha at East Ledang for future development.

Paramount, which has campuses in Kuala Lumpur and Penang, is focusing on the southern region to tap the growing population of Nusajaya.

Meanwhile, UEM Land’s managing director Wan Abdullah Wan Ibrahim said: “We are delighted that Paramount has chosen to site its school at Nusajaya. This is in line with our plans to develop an integrated community in Nusajaya where all can work, live and play here.”

He said the setting up of a private school in Nusajaya together with other projects by world-class developers like Limitless LLC, which is co-developing Puteri Harbour Residential North, was yet another testimony of the tangible developments at Nusajaya.

Wan Abdullah said the first phase of its East Ledang property project, which comprises 140 units of terrace and semi-detached houses with a gross development value (GDV) of RM97 million, was expected to be fully sold by July.

“We have already sold 50%, which is beyond our forecast and now we expect to launch the second phase by the fourth quarter of this year,” he said.

Those of you sending yr kids to international schools in jb, what r yr plans for their university education? Planning to send yr k7ds abroad or Sg uni? Can we still get our kids to Sg uni if they studied in JB?
My daughter has just joined Grade 7 (equivalent to Sec 1) at a local international school. It is an IB school so she will work towards an IB diploma. Universities the world over, including Singapore, recognise IB diplomas as an entry qualification so I am not too worried about it. I'm just keeping myself worried to making sure my daughter takes full advantage of the opportunities that she has in front of her :smile:

Sunway International school is coming to Iskandar. Extremely impressive with the quality of teachers they employed and the fees is extremely reasonable compare to Marlborough College.
