About us

Our vision is to bring people together, and to create a community where language learners come together with others who share their love of languages. By bringing together language learners from all over Singapore so they can meet others with similar passion, it enables our members to share useful language-learning resources as well as practice speaking their target languages with others - it's a win-win situation!

In the midst of COVID-19, the year 2020, we were founded by a Y1 student from Raffles Girls' School (Secondary), Loy Xing-Yi. A polyglot herself who speaks eleven languages and counting, she chairs this club and runs her own blog, which is linked in our website. Since then, we have been working hard to unite Singapore's aspiring polyglots.

About Us - Our Founder

Loy Xing-Yi is the founder and chairperson of Singapore’s 1st Polyglot Club.
