Name: Kin Cheung Age: 18 Top tunes: Avril Lavigne's hits Yes, but I like maths better. My maths teacher is very nice - I'm not saying that my English teacher is not good. In fact, she uses different activities to raise our interest in the language. For example, she would ask us to write English lyrics, but sometimes I get bored. Another class in my school watches English movies. I hope we can too. Name: Rae Chung Age: 16 Top tunes: Seven Days by Craig David Yes, I like English lessons because I lived in Britain for a few years. I speak fluent English and I like western culture. I read a lot of English books, especially fiction. But our English lessons are sometimes boring. There aren't many activities and not enough discussion. Perhaps this is because there are too many students in the class and it's hard for everyone to voice their opinions. Name: Wing Chan Age: 17 Top tunes: pop music No. I just sat the HKCEE and I'm not going to continue my studies. I dislike English lessons and all other lessons. They are boring and difficult. But I'm pretty sure I'll get a pass in English. I would like to be a beautician and I am hoping to take a course. I don't see how good English skills can help my career. Name: Wing Chan Age: 18 Top tunes: F.I.R.'s songs Not really. I am taking a course which will put me in an associate degree programme next year. My English courses are not as interesting as those in secondary school. Our lecturer keeps talking and does not interact with the students. But I will work hard to improve my English because I hope to study for an associate degree in translation. Name: Antony Chan Age: 18 Top tunes: Usher's music Yes, I do. English is important in Hong Kong. If your English is good, you'll get a good job. I put a lot of effort into improving my English. Actually English is my favourite subject. I once asked a foreign friend to teach me. It was very useful. I enjoy my English lessons because the teacher is good and comes up with creative activities.
