Second Language Acquisition

This article looks at the issues of second language acquisition and comes up with very sensible suggestions and solutions which Hong Kong teachers on the course feel need to be shared with their Panels in order to improve the quality of second language learning.

The pictures show teachers feeding back on best practice of second language learning, taken from the article.  The feedback is slanted at advice to their English Panel - things that need to be taken into account. 

I think the message is that too much time in Hong Kong is spent on the structure of language - the grammar especially-  and not enough on actually speaking.

Client Feedback

I had no previous experience working with students with special educational needs which is why I came to your seminars. So I just thought I'd write to say how engaging and informative your seminars were. I attended 'dyslexia as a learning preference' and 'notice and adjust strategies for a busy classroom'. You made me aware of so many little tactics that can make the running of the classroom that bit more exciting but wholly educational at the same time.
