English Language 2021

English Learning Activities

1.Exchange Programmes – the USA, Australia and Scotland

To enhance the language proficiency and broaden students’ horizon, our school associates with a variety of educational bodies overseas in order to put some common education missions into practice. We recommend students from Form 3 to 5 to join the USA High Schools Exchange Program held by CETUSA, Form 1 to 5 students to join the Australia Summer Immersion Programme with Fraser Coast Anglican College, and Form 2-3 students to join the Scotland Exchange Programme. These programs allow students to stay with local host families and study in a local school for a year, 7 weeks and 10 days respectively. Having finished the programme, students further develop their appreciation and acceptance of different cultures and their mastering of English language.
