Optimising Senior Secondary English Language



Background
In tandem with one of the recommendations set out in the review report with the theme "Optimise the curriculum for the future, Foster whole person development and diverse talents" of the Task Force on Review of School Curriculum (Task Force), the committees on the four senior secondary (SS) core subjects under the Curriculum Development Council (CDC) and the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority (HKEAA) have formulated proposals to optimise the respective curricula and assessments of the subjects, thereby creating space for students and catering for learner diversity.
