Celebrating Kristang

Languages of Singapore Trail

The Languages of Singapore Trail seeks to provide you with the opportunity to learn a little of Singapore’s many diverse languages and dialects — we’re featuring more than 10! Each language will be represented by a handful of speakers at a table and participants can go from table to table to learn from hosts and hear their stories.

Featuring speakers and learners of more than 15 of Singapore’s heritage languages such as Baba Malay, Bengali, Bugis, Cantonese, Hainanese, Hakka, Javanese, Kristang, Malayalam, Minangkabau, and Singapore Sign Language.

Don’t know which language to start with? Don’t panic, we will have an activity book to help plan your way around the tables. Trace the journeys of our ancestors as they made their way to our island home while learning about the languages they brought with them.

One language per table. Join any of them.
