Background and Goals:

The investment in English-speaking resources in Hong Kong schools is woefully inadequate, leading to weak oral English skills among students. Many students struggle with even basic daily English conversations and Q&As. Moreover, the tutors’ ability in many local tutoring centres to teach more standard English conversation is lacking. This course aims to overcome these challenges by offering practical curriculum design, allowing students to progressively enhance their English speaking abilities under the guidance of native English-speaking instructors.
