Chat Groups (PLAs)

The Chan Feng Men-ling Chan Shuk-lin English Language Centre organizes a lively range of Chat Groups from Week 3 to Week 13 of each semester.

Chat Groups provide opportunities for students to practise using English in conversation or discussion with English speakers. Some activities also provide opportunities to practise reading and listening for input into later discussions.

Through regular and active participation in Chat Groups (timetable), students should be able to:
  • Develop their fluency
  • Express their opinions
  • Respond appropriately to the opinions of others
  • Support their views with reference to personal experience or general knowledge
  • Expand their vocabulary
  • Reflect on their learning

Chat Groups take place in the ELC Lounge. Students can consult the weekly timetable, available from the Language Lounge, and simply drop in to the activities.
