The design and delivery of the ELC Open Online Courses aim to support our efforts in achieving our objectives:

  • Upgrading Your Grammar helps YOU improve the grammar that YOU need to successfully complete your university studies! Join this course to master the language skills you need to succeed.
  • Academic Skills for Independent Learners (ASIL) helps YOU improve the academic English that YOU need to successfully complete YOUR university studies! Join this course to self-study, practise and master academic English.

To foster students' independent, life-long English language learning and whole-person development, we have developed

  • Read to Know! is for YOU to read more and know more! Join the course and increase YOUR knowledge and develop YOUR critical thinking skills.
  • Learning English through Short Stories helps you increase your reading proficiency and develop your language and literacy skills!

To support the pursuit of English language excellence within the PolyU and in the wider Hong Kong community, we have developed

  • Serving the Community through Teaching English is a fusion of face-to-face and online learning experience developed for the subject ELC2S02 Serving the Community through Teaching English. This blended learning initiative provides flexible and engaging online lectures followed up by in-class discussions and practice.
