UEC Singapore Forum

Through this online forum, my students now have a voice to express their views about different countries and/or share their overseas travels with the online community.

First stop was America. Then Saudi Arabia, Canada, England, Switzerland, Singapore (this page), and so on, all over the world, in accordance with the list of countries at the bottom of this page!

Please share your opinions below.  It'll be a pleasure to hear your input. And by all means, be sure to comment on and rate the other students' comments as well. 

Enjoy !!
