Main

The mission of the English Department is to provide language education where students develop their English proficiency for study, work and leisure; extend their knowledge and experience of other cultures through the English medium; develop the ability to use English confidently; and help them overcome the challenges of the keenly competitive knowledge-based society of Hong Kong. To get students exposed to English as a second language in a language rich environment, we have provided a wide range of extra-curricular activities and experiences that help students acquire new skills, develop old ones and learn to be an expressive language user. We hope to inspire in our students a love for the language and foster an appreciation of the English language as an art.

Assessment

We put emphasis on both summative and formative assessments. By making a good use of purposeful tasks and activities, students are expected to gain insights concerning their strengths and weaknesses. Both class-work and homework are given for the purpose of reinforcing, facilitating and encouraging independent learning. Teachers provide timely feedback for students to measure their achievements, inform students of their performance and encourage further progress.
