This project aims to enhance university students’ linguistic competence and performance in meeting the academic challenges of higher education.

A teaching and learning project, led by CityU’s Professor Jonathan Webster in the Department of Linguistics and Translation, aims to upgrade university students’ linguistic competence and performance in both Chinese and English, and includes four sub-components designed to strategically address critical issues in English language writing and spoken pronunciation, English and Chinese grammatical awareness, and communication skills in Chinese. More than HKD3 million from the University Grants Committee (UGC) will be channeled into this initiative.
