Typically, when people see that I’m Asian and Singaporean, the following conversation would ensue.

“Did you learn English back in Singapore?”
“We learn everything in English in school,” I would say. “English is our main language, while our mother tongue is our second language.”

Yup, Singapore is a bilingual society.
