AN English week was recently held at Hongkong Tang King Po College of the Salesians of Don Bosco to promote an interest in the language among students. It was also aimed at helping students get a better understanding of language usage. The theme was ''This Is English Week, Mind Your Language'' while the focus of special projects for the week was on the role of English in learning other subjects. The English Department and various clubs organised a series of activities for the week: an essay competition, a handwriting competition, debating contests, story-telling and reading competitions, a speech contest, a translation competition, a Scrabble contest and an English quiz. The reading competition was linked with the Class Library Reading Scheme - similar to the one operated by the Education Department - and was based on the students' year-long reading performance. Other programmes included variety shows, a book display, exhibitions, film shows and music entertainment. Mr S. S. Vasan, the English panel chairman, said the English week helped students realise the importance of the language, not only in their education but also their future careers.
