Thank you for your interest. The application period is over.


In line with the University’s mission, the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences aims at enhancing CityU’s professional education with English language training and development of cultural awareness in an English-speaking setting. The Cultural and Language Immersion (CALI) will allow you to meet local people in an English-speaking country and be immersed in a different cultural environment.

The Cultural and Language Immersion provides opportunities to:

  • improve your English language competence by immersing yourself in an English-speaking country;
  • improve your use of academic English both in speaking and in writing;
  • broaden your horizon and enhance your global cultural awareness;
  • increase your confidence in language usage;
  • enhance your intercultural communication skills by interacting with English-speaking locals and international students; and
  • understand the cultural differences between Hong Kong and the overseas country.
