Speaker's Bio Dr. Nancy Lee was Head of the Government’s Standing Committee on Language Education and Research (SCOLAR) and assisted in the concepts and implementation of ‘English Corner’ and the Native-Speaker English Teacher Scheme in schools,the Workplace English Campaign which aligned the English standards of Hong Kong employees and provided funding for workers of six industries. As consultant to the University Grants Committee, she also did a feasibility study on exit English standards for HK graduates which led to the adoption of TOEFL/IELTS for exiting graduates. Since then, Dr. Lee has become consultant to public and private organizations on both sides of the border.
With over 30 years experience in language teaching, curriculum development and program evaluation for university students in Hong Kong, Dr. Lee is familiar with how learners’ English can be affected by different programmes and teaching methods. However, despite all of the above, the learning still has to be done by the learner alone.
Workshop Description Once a person leaves school or university, your contact with English may be lost unless your employer is a multinational company. Promotion prospects for management also depend on not only your spoken English, but also your ability to write proposals and reports. So keeping up your English after graduation may be extremely important for future management positions.
The focus of this workshop is to offer suggestions for how a graduate learner may brush up/keep up his/her English by learning independently, at leisure and/or for fun, and to provide ways and means for the lifelong self improvement of English.
