    Personally, I find mylanguageexchange.com a useful site if you want to practice your French by writing to pen-pals.

          All about language courses

          I'm keen on picking up one or two languages with a good language school soon, probably Japanese and/or French/Italian. Any good schools to recommend? Preferably weekday day time classes.

          What foreign languages can you speak? Which school did you pick it up from? How do you maintain the skills (eg, who do you practise it with?)?

            Hi Sweetmango, Boston Acedamy at Marina Square is not bad.
            They have weekday classes as well.

            during my poly, we had to take one 3rd language and I chose Japanese.. But now forgot most of them already, excpet for simple simple terms

            I wanna learn French!

              if u're totally alien to the languages, i recommand that you pick up one at a time so that you don't confuse yourself; i've learnt french, italian and german at different stages and i know how easy it is to get stuff jumbled up even when you learn them at different times. if you must learn two langages at the same period, it's better to stagger when you start

              1. french - Alliance Francaise is the institution to go to; i've not taken any classes from there but this is the de facto place, reputable too

              2. italian - the italian embassy used to run a programme under its culture department, call and check

                I second this! But very expensive. Chris, if you're taking up French, let me know! I'll join you

                    wow, more replies than I expected!
                    This Alliance Francaise place sounds good! Karen, I'll be attending weekday day time classes, if you can join me, it'll be great! Anyone else wants to join in? Then we can practise in reallife.

                    Dimples, your classes are in evening right? How much are you paying?

                    bluebubble, you have a point there. I think I'll pick up one at a time so as to avoid confusing myself.

                        I've been taking French lessons at Alliance Francaise! Definitely a great place to learn French! They have a library, theatre (which screens French movies very frequently) and a wonderful cafe with yummy French food too!

                              "bonjour, Avez vous le certificat d'authenticit? du sac. Si oui, pouvez-vous m'en envoyer une copie ? Merci d'avance"
