"Language is a medium through which knowledge is acquired and skills developed. In a teaching context where English is used as a medium of learning, effective use of English as a learning tool is of prime importance. Through the ‘English across the Curriculum’ project, ELTU has provided students a good opportunity to promote their mastery of discipline knowledge and skills through enhancing their use of English. To make the project a success, ELTU needs the input of teachers in the use of English specific to their respective disciplines. Do sign up as collaborators of the project in order to help your students become competent users of English for academic purposes."

Associate Professor
School of Architecture, CUHK

"Language and communication skills are key components behind translating ideas into reality. Students, in their pursuit of knowledge, often forget that ‘how’ they communicate can be as important as ‘what’ they communicate. Over the last year the School of Architecture at CU has collaborated with the EAC Team to work on these very issues: Communication, Speech Delivery and Presentation Structure. The results have been of immense value to both the students who have improved their confidence and professors who have learnt important teaching skills. We would greatly encourage you to engage with the EAC project."
