English Language Education


Together We Fight the Virus (Banner)

Position
Every learner is entitled to English Language education. As a Key Learning Area, English Language Education seeks to develop learners’ English proficiency for study, work and leisure; provide them with opportunities for personal and intellectual development, and extend their knowledge and experience of other cultures through the English medium; and help them overcome the challenges of the rapidly changing and keenly competitive knowledge-based society of Hong Kong.

Direction
Schools are encouraged to continue with the good practices that they have developed which are in line with the recommended curriculum developments. More importantly, they are encouraged to enhance learners’experience by providing a language-rich environment through: 
  • providing greater opportunities for learners to use English for purposeful communication both inside and outside the classroom;
  • making use of learner-centred instruction to encourage learner independence;
  • making greater use of literary or imaginative texts to develop critical thinking and encourage free expression and creativity; and
  • promoting language development strategies, values and attitudes that are conducive to effective, independent and lifelong learning.
