Aims of Minor


This Minor programme aims to develop students' knowledge in subject areas that examine the use of language in a variety of social contexts. It aims to enhance students' awareness and sensitivity to the social meanings of context-specific language use in Chinese, English, and bilingual interactions.

 

The knowledge and skills students gained in this Minor programme will equip them with a critical and analytical mind to understand the dynamics of social interaction in monolingual mode and in bilingual setting, from everyday conversations to field-specific discourse between teachers and educators, as well as between professionals in the workplace.
