Course Description
All prospective English teachers are required by the Hong Kong government to go on an immersion programme in an English-speaking country for English language enhancement in order to be qualified to be English teachers in Hong Kong. All ELED students are required to have a two-month immersion experience at the University of York in the summer of their third year of studies, and the immersion programme comprises several components: language enhancement, academic training, cultural experience, methodological instruction, and school visits. Students can register a series of three courses (ELED1010, ELED1020, ELED1030) any term after completion of the immersion experience.
