The course aims to help HKDSE candidates develop their English communication skills, both in group interaction and in individual presentation.
Every student will be given highly useful tips for success in mastering English speaking skills in an interactive way, participate in mock practice in speaking activities, including a group discussion of 3 or 4 students lasting up to 8 minutes and an individual response lasting one minute per student.  Highly constructive feedback from the teacher will be given immediately after each round of mock practice. Students’ improvement areas will also be summarised, and a debriefing session will be conducted at the end each session.
Given the teacher’s solid experience of teaching and assessing secondary school students in Hong Kong, the input and feedback before and after the language activities will be highly useful for the students’ speaking skills development and self-improvement which ultimately benefit their HKDSE performance.
