Visitors to Little India may find tips on how to improve their English language skills on their next mug of teh tarik. On Thursday, the Speak Good English Movement handed out 10,000 mugs to several restaurants, coffeeshops and other food and beverage outlets in the area.
There are ten different designs of mugs, each printed with tips and reminders on the importance of good English. This is the largest single distribution to date.
This move is expected to reach out to "thousands" of visitors who go to the area daily. Said Ms Jennifer Yin, the secretariat for the campaign: "If you come here during lunch or dinner time, you will see that there are a lot of working people, and they are from all races." This year's campaign targets working adults aged between 20 and 29 and similar mug giveways were held at coffeeshops in Raffles Place.
