The English Language Centre (ELC) of the Faculty of Arts and Humanity (FAH), University of Macau (UM), on November 5th and 6th, held the ‘2018 Fall English Festival,’ which was actively joined by many UM students. Participants said that the festival provided a platform for them to improve their English language abilities and skills and boost their confidence in speaking English.
The content of the 2018 Fall English Festival ranged from contests, workshops to game-based activities, including 2018 English Drama Contest, Speaking with Confidence Workshop, Water Painting Workshop, International Potluck Night, Best Board Games and Chatroom. English was the only media throughout all the activities.
