The 2nd English Language Training for the Youth
English Language Training for the Youth was established in 2012. Considering great amount of migrant students study with local students in the mainstream school but in different cultural backgrounds, this year we expand this service to children who are in primary 6 to secondary 2 students including migrants from mainland China. Through the training, we provide them a healthy atmosphere on learning English, Hong Kong Sign Language and build their positive thinking.
There is only one family in the world according to the LOVE! For encouraging youth to experience a cross cultural sharing, we invited a refugee as our visitor for an interview and encouraged one another through the experience. Students understood the live of refugees in Hong Kong, education situation of their new generation, culture and history of other country and limitation of their living way here in Hong Kong through the interview. "I can't imagine that I can communicate with a refugee face to face.", "We can't learn this kind of fact at school.", "This is a valuable interview to enrich my life." and "I should let my classmates and friends get to know more..." Students discussed impressively one another during group discussion after the interview.
The guest sharing was held on 12 Jan 2013 for the English Language Training for the Youth. Mr. Steven Leung, our guest speaker is from Brooklyn Alliance Church New York to share the daily live in the United States. It provided a chance for students to practice English through the sharing. There was a good way to stimulate students to explore daily live in the other countries of the world through interaction of the sharing.
