PolyU Summer Programme 2021 (CBS and ENGL)


The CBS Summer Programme 2021 held on 29 July 2021 is a taster programme for secondary school students. 28 student participants have learned translation and localisation skills in the advertising context, explored the notion of multilingualism and had an interactive tour around CBS’ modern facilities including Interpreting Laboratory, Speech and Language Sciences Laboratory, and Speech Therapy Unit.

On the other hand, 45 Secondary 4 to 5 students from about 30 secondary schools experienced “English Around You” in activities organised by ENGL under the Summer Programme. Participating students learned how to use English communication skills to solve real-world problems effectively in both local and global multilingual settings and discover that English can also be “applied” like science through three practical workshops titled “The Tools of Persuasion”, “Inclusive Language and Media”, and “Talking Together: Communication Between Doctors, Nurses, and Patients”. According to the post-event survey, all students in attendance enjoyed the programme and over 95% indicated they would recommend it to their friends.
