For primary school - every school is a good school - especially language which is extremely fundamental. There is no use recommending because teachers get transferred every now and then

If you are talking about primary school I second st Nicholas Girls. Many people think they are an IJ school so it should be an English school.

They place strong emphasis on both languages.

If ur talking about enrichment courses I will recommend Tien Hsia Language sch which is specialising in mandarin courses. They have another subsidiary, Morris Allen which is specialising in English courses for kids. We are satisfied & impressive with their way of teaching. My Gal's phonics skills & pronunciation improved a lot.
