Merlion and Singapore English

by Naoto
(Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan)

My image of Singapore is Merlion. Its head is a lion and its body is a fish, and it jets water from its mouth. I have thought Singapore has only one Merlion, but there are five Merlions there.

Singapore has some official languages. When we did listening practice in our class, I felt Singapore English is easy to understand.

I don't know the reason, but I think it might be the reason that they might have a lot of opportunities to speak English with non-native English speakers, so they might know the way to make non-native speakers understand their English.
