P.L.E.A.S.E. (Parents Learning English and Speaking Excellently) is an English course aimed at Chinese speaking mothers. It is now in its’ second run as feedback from participants has been excellent. The mothers, including one grandmother, have been marching into class with an enthusiasm that is highly infectious. They have progressed from trying to repeat simple words and sentences by rote, to communicating with people they meet outside at work. One of the participants, Mdm Tan, exclaimed that she was able to speak to the Malay conservancy personnel about her rubbish chute's door being stuck, and the other party was able to converse with her.
"I understand her, she understands me. Simple English!" she chirped happily one evening, laughing as she recounted the incident.
