    Course Coordinator: Dr Danny Leung, BA, MPhil, PhD (CUHK)

    ENGL E810 has been specially designed to meet the Education Bureau’s ‘subject knowledge’ requirements for English language teachers in Hong Kong who have ‘non-relevant’ degrees.

    It aims to develop English language teachers’ knowledge and understanding of the English language, and their ability to apply this in their day-to-day teaching to enhance pupils’ language standards.

    The course covers the following topics:

    • Phonetics and phonology for English language teaching

    • Lexis, morphology and semantics for English language teaching

    • Pedagogic grammar

    • Written and spoken discourse for English language teaching

    • Sociolinguistics and English as an international language

    • Psycholinguistics and second language acquisition

    • Literature and language arts in English

    Mode of teaching
    This course involves 600 study hours. It is presented in a face-to-face teaching mode. There will be two or three two-hour lectures a week, one three-hour tutorial every two or three weeks, and online discussion. Lectures will be held in the evenings on weekdays, and tutorials will be held in the afternoons or evenings on Saturdays and Sundays.

    Start of semester
    This course will start in early September 2019 and the final examination will be in June 2020.

    There are four assessment components:

    • Assignment 1 Essay (18%)

    • Assignment 2 Essay (18%)

    • Assignment 3 Project (24%)

    • Final examination (40%)

    Except for some designated assignments, students are required to submit assignments via the Online Learning Environment (OLE).

    Online support
    This course is supported by the Online Learning Environment (OLE). All lecture notes will be posted on the OLE for students to download and retain for their own use. In addition, students can communicate with their tutors, the Course Coordinator and other students electronically through the OLE. To access the OLE, students will need to have access to the Internet.
