Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, is an island country off
the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, 137 kilometres (85 mi) north of the
equator, in the Southeast Asian region of the Asian continent. It is
separated from Malaysia by the Straits of Johor to its north, and from
Indonesia's Riau Islands by the Singapore Strait to its south. A city-state,
Singapore is a cosmopolitan world city, playing a key role in international
trade and finance.
Singapore is effectively a multilingual nation. Although English is the
first language of Singapore, there are also a multitude of other languages
spoken in the country that reflect its multiracial, multicultural and
multilingual society. As of 2008, there are more than 20 languages being
spoken in Singapore. The Singapore government recognise four official
languages: English, Malay,
(Mandarin), and Tamil.
