英語教育(小學)

(Offering from 2016-17 onwards)


These Minors focus on the teaching of the English language in primary schools (Primary Strand) and the practical issues and strategies involved. They enable students to have an understanding of how English is taught and help learners develop meta-knowledge and meta-cognition of the second language learning processes and strategies, which can be useful to their own English language learning.

 

These Minors are only offered to undergraduate students in their 3rd year of study or beyond

 

Exit requirement: 

 

IELTS 6.5 (with no sub-score lower than 6.0) or equivalent
