Join camp and have fun improving your English

THE City Polytechnic of Hongkong (CPHK) takes the lead in the teaching of English outside the classroom with its Summer English Camp for senior secondary students.

Described as a ''unique learning experience'', the camp is organised by the City Polytechnic's Centre for Continuing Education.

It is the first such camp to be organised by Hongkong's tertiary institutes.

The programme consists of two camps, to be held from July 26 to 30 and August 2 to 6 on the CPHK campus.

Each camp will last five days, Monday to Friday, and run from around 9 am to 5 pm daily.

All instructors are members of the CPHK's teaching staff, from the Division of Humanities and Social Sciences.

The camp gives students a chance to make good use of their summer vacation time to improve their English, as well as enjoy the CPHK's sports and other facilities.

Students will learn English in a variety of activities, including computer laboratory practice, discussions, lectures, videos, films, games and sports.

Special topics, like psychology, literature and commerce, will be introduced to bring variety to the programme.

Participants can work on their speaking skills through oral presentations, interviews, telephone conversations, discussions and pronunciation classes.

Articles of topical interest in newspapers and magazines will be used to help students improve their reading skills.

There will also be classes on grammar, as well as letter writing.

The fee for each Summer English Camp is HK$680 (meals not included). Each camp will enrol around 60 students on a first-come, first-served basis.

Hurry, as the last day for enrolment is this Friday! For further information, call the Centre for Continuing Education on 788-7070.
