Language education

English Learning Environment

 

English language is taught as a discrete subject at Good Hope School by a mixture of native and non-native speakers. Emphasis is placed on the need to develop an all-round English language capability. This capability is a prerequisite for all students if they are to communicate well in English and enter a Hong Kong, or a good overseas, university based upon examination success. To this end students are given a rich diet of learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. Large classes are made up of about 35 to 40 students, but there are smaller classes of 20 students, from S1 to S4, that are intended to encourage more interactive learning. Emphasis is put on teacher-led student-centered activities, rather than on didactic teaching styles, as this seems to be a more effective way to engage the modern student.

 

 

 普通話教學


為有效提升學生的語文水平,本校中一至中三級採用普通話教授中國語文科(中國歷史除外)。於課堂內外,中文老師均以普通話指導學生,師生溝通及交流亦以普通話進行。此外,本校亦設有普通話增潤班,提升同學的普通話能力。

 

與普通話相關活動


學生於週會裡若用中文分享對時事的看法和感受,或發佈消息,均會採用普通話,藉以營造普通話氛圍,增加學生使用普通話的機會。


同時,本校也鼓勵及推薦學生參加各類與普通話有關的活動,如校際朗誦節、普通話傳藝比賽、兩文三語菁英大比拼等,參加比賽的學生都有中文老師從旁指導,糾正讀音,豐富情感。

今年本校亦增設了普通話表演藝術學會,旨在讓學生透過不同語境、不同形式的表演活動,掌握更多普通話詞彙和說話技巧,加強學生對普通話語言習慣的認識,提高學習普通話的興趣和鑒賞普通話表演藝術的能力,加深對祖國語言文化的瞭解。

 


 

 

Cultural diversity within teacher and student populations


Good Hope has always prided itself on having a diverse range of teachers and students. Currently there are many Native English Teachers (NETs) in the school. As an English Medium of Instruction school (EMI), the whole staff body naturally has a good knowledge of English regardless of origin.

The student body is also culturally diverse. Besides local Cantonese students there are also a growing number of mainland Chinese students who have come from all parts of the motherland. There are also some students with European, Canadian or American backgrounds, and some who hail from Japan, Taiwan, Korea or Australia. Needless to say this variety of origin adds enormously to the rich cultural environment of Good Hope School.
