TEFL Jobs in Singapore
Singapore is a tropical city-state on the tip of the Malay Peninsula. Known as one of the economic “tigers” of Asia, the city is a prosperous, highly-developed country. Founded as a trading post in 1819 by Sir Stamford Raffles, Singapore continues to be an important part of the global economy with a market based on financial services, oil-refining and logistics. The city is a thoroughly modern metropolis with a well-developed infrastructure. People from all over the world have settled in Singapore over the years to work and do business. This multicultural history is reflected in the various areas in the city such as the Colonial District, Little India, the Arab Quarter and Chinatown.
The Colonial District is dotted with reminders of British colonial rule including the famous Raffles Hotel (home of the Singapore Sling cocktail), the Padang (a large playing field that is home to the Singapore Cricket Club) and St Andrew’s Cathedral. Little India reflects the influence of the large Indian population on Singapore and their history in this city-state. It is a vibrant, colorful part of the city suffused with the scent of incense and spices and is a great place to eat out. The Arab Quarter was an area allotted to the Sultan Hussein Mohammed Shah by Sir Thomas Raffles and attracted Malay, Javan and Sumatran Muslims as well as Yemeni traders. The area is now a thriving shopping zone where you can buy Persian rugs, leather goods, jewelry and more. Chinatown represents the area assigned to Chinese immigrants during colonial times. Although there have been recent restoration efforts, many of the original buildings were destroyed during the development that came after independence.
