Abstract

Knowing your students’ language skill is important. Most of CityU students face the challenge of studying in an English-as-the-medium-of-instruction environment as non-native speakers. Are they well prepared in their secondary school studies? The university has invested significant resources in English enhancement for students. Although many of these initiatives are promoted on campus, subject teachers’ recommendations are amongst the best in motivating students to join the activities. This session will provide participants a holistic view of language support at CityU so colleagues know how to appropriately advise their students for their English problems.
