Foundation English for University Studies

This course aims to lay the comprehensive English language foundation needed for university studies by engaging students in multi-modal learning activities. In particular, students are guided to plan and complete an expository essay and deliver a corresponding presentation using writing and speaking skills acquired in the course. Learning topics include identifying features of academic and expository writing, planning and drafting a problem-solution essay, conducting research, documenting sources, paraphrasing and summarizing, structuring presentations, and enhancing verbal and non-verbal delivery skills. Course-tied workshops will be provided in support of students’ learning. This course is compulsory for first-year students, except for those who have attained HKDSE English level 5 or above or its equivalence. This course is a prerequisite for Level Two and Three courses.
