Fun with our Mother Tongue Languages
The establishment of the Lee Kuan Yew Fund for Bilingualism (the “Fund”) was announced by Mr Lee Kuan Yew, at the launch of “My Lifelong Challenge: Singapore’s Bilingual Journey” in 2011.
The Fund supports creative and engaging approaches that encourage bilingualism and the learning of MTLs as a lifelong endeavour. This year, the Fund Committee has collaborated with all the polytechnics to develop resources that encourage the learning of MTLs among pre-school children and young adults. The Fund Committee has also set up a Special Call for Projects at #IamBilingualSG, to support the learning of MTLs among young children at home.
