Coffee Morning is the British Council’s series of informal gatherings for new expatriates. The fun, informative sessions give you the insider information you need to make the most out of Singapore.
From learning how to say you want less sugar in your ‘kopi’ to ensuring you don’t accidentally give a clock as a gift, it covers the syntax of Singlish to the origins of some of the names of places you pass every day.
You will also get the inside scoop on hotspots to explore and discover, and find out about the customs and locales that make Singapore such a multicultural place to live, work and play.
At previous events, over 24 different nationalities have come together at the British Council’s Napier Road Centre. Having the opportunity to make new connections at sessions like this is invaluable to those newly arrived to Singapore.
Led by Claire Firat, the Head of Public Courses for Adults and Lynette Chua, Head of Sales and Customer Management at the British Council Singapore, the morning also includes a Q & A session on life in Singapore, and is designed to bring new Singapore residents together to build friendships and gain an understanding of Singlish conventions.
Free admission. Please register online by Wednesday 23 August 2017.
Light refreshments and coffee will be served.
