Articles In this Guide

Your child will be required to learn a Mother Tongue Language (MTL) as a second language during their time in school. There are three recognised MTLs: Chinese, Malay, and Tamil. Students from Chinese, Malay, and Indian ethnic backgrounds will be taught their respective MTLs. Nonetheless, Indian students who do not speak Tamil have the option to apply for learning a Non-Tamil Indian Language, which includes languages like Hindi, Gujarati, Bengali, Punjabi, or Urdu. These language courses are not offered by the Ministry of Education (MOE) and are typically arranged externally and outside regular school hours.

However, for the Hindi language specifically, numerous local schools in Singapore offer a In School Parallel Programme. More details about this initiative can be obtained from the Board for the Teaching and Testing of South Asian Languages’ official website.
