Message from the Acting Head of ELE


Hello everyone,


I want to tell you about our department, English Language Education (ELE). We care about our work, and we are always looking for new and innovative ways to improve English education. Our goal is to become a leading department in Hong Kong and beyond, focusing on areas like Identity, Agency and Empowerment in Language Learning, Content-centric English language education, Digital Media and AI in global English education, and Multiliteracies and intercultural literacies.


We care about people’s needs and challenges, and we work hard to find solutions. Our research is cutting-edge and involves different fields of study. We use evidence to make sure our solutions work. We aim to share our valuable findings and best practices with everyone, not just academics. That's why we actively participate in different activities to spread knowledge to a wider audience.


We are also very eager to build connections and collaborate with other top institutions in the Greater Bay Area and around the world. This helps us learn from others and have a bigger impact on the world.


At ELE, we are passionate about what we do, and our energy shows in our work. We are confident that our expertise, research, and knowledge-sharing efforts will bring positive changes to English language education. Our goal is to be a unique and caring department that leads the way in research and practice, both locally and globally.


Thank you for being part of our journey, and we look forward to making a difference together.


Dr LEE, Ju Seong

Acting Head, Department of English Language Education
