Language Centre

Language Centre (LC) provides a cozy environment with its state-of-the-art design and a wealth of language resources that students can immerse in language learning outside the classroom.

 

   



Language Intensive Training

We have endeavored to encourage students to take part in various public examinations. Language Centre offers intensive training for students taking International English Language Testing System (IELTS), Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) , and Putonghua ShuipingCeshi (PSC). During the period of 2014-2015, students’ achievement was encouraging. Six students awarded Band 6 or above and one of them attained Band 7.5 (scoring 8.5 out of 9 in the listening paper) in IELTS. Meanwhile, 3 students scored Grade 2B or above in PSC, fulfilling the minimum entry requirement of being a Putonghua teacher.
