The English Name of Singapore is derived from the Malay Word “SINGAPURA”, which means Lion City in Sanskrit. Hence the Customary Reference to the nation as the LION CITY. Singapore is also called a Garden City because there are many trees everywhere which makes it look more like a garden. It is an island country made up of 63 Islands. It separates from Malaysia by the Straits of Johor to its north and from Indonesia’s Riau Islands by the Singapore Strait to its south. The country is highly urbanized with very little primary rainforest remaining, although more land is being created for development through land reclamation.
Singapore is also known for Singlish, or Singaporean English, which is English mixed with some words from Malay and other local languages. The government runs a campaign, the Speak Good English Movement, against Singlish as it makes Singaporeans look less educated and intelligent than they are
