I. Introduction#1

English, Spanish and Chinese are the three most popular languages spoken worldwide, of which English has gained the status of global language. In the East Asian region, English and Chinese serve as the lingua franca in government, business and education. The trend of globalization and the rise of China in the world have also increased both the international and regional demand for knowledgeable bilinguals in Chinese and English who can work in bilingual and bicultural settings that require advanced skills in bilingual communication.
The programme is designed to meet the growing market demands by giving students a broad training in different areas related to Chinese and English. Its emphasis on bilingual and bicultural skills as well as Chinese and English literatures will enable students to choose courses relevant to their study needs and career plans. The programme is structured to allow students to specialize in either Chinese or English.
