Even though the backgrounds of most Singaporeans are non western, the official main language of Singapore is English which is great news for those who come here for holidays from western countries. Some Singaporeans are bit hard to understand when they talk as they speak in - Singlish, which is a hybrid form of English with Malay and Chinese thrown into the mix.
