Learn My Dialect

Learn My Dialect aims to harness the potential and skills of our seniors to benefit the society as well as provide the seniors a healthy and active lifestyle. The programme also enables the seniors to remain connected with the society, build a social network with their peers and interact with the young to enhance intergeneration bonding.
