    Programme description

    This double award programme is designed specifically for those people who have the career goal of becoming a primary school English teacher in Hong Kong. Through the programme you will gain a solid foundation in language proficiency, English studies and learning skills as well as professional skills in English teaching. The programme starts by constructing a solid foundation of language proficiency and understanding upon which to build progressively more demanding studies of different aspects of the English language. We aim to develop in all students an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the language. Integrated with your studies of language will be education courses developing you as a reflective teacher, knowledgeable about the curriculum, able to design effective learning experiences for pupils and to implement them effectively using a repertoire of teaching skills.

    The programme provides complete preparation for language teaching and is listed by the Education Bureau as a Recognised Language Major Degree.

    The programme includes courses in education, language teaching, language proficiency, language studies and in the use of information technology for learning. If you are new to university study you should start your studies with foundation courses in English language, information technology for learning and in education as well as taking the middle level language studies course, ENGL A202:

    • ENGL E110 English for Effective Communication I: Listening and Speaking

    • ENGL E120 English for Effective Communication I: Reading and Writing

    • IT E150 Micro computing for Learning

    • IT S123 Introduction to Internet Services and Applications

    • ENGL A202 The Structure of Modern English

    • EDU E100 Learning and Teaching in a School Context

    Once you have developed your language and learning foundation, you can move on to middle level language proficiency and higher level language studies courses:

    • ENGL E200 English for Effective Communication II - Reading and Writing

    • ENGL E210 English for Effective Communication II - Listening and Speaking

    Apart from EDU E100, courses in education and teaching methodology are best left until later in your study schedule so that you can draw on the strong foundation of language skill and knowledge you will have acquired by that stage.
