The ELC welcomes over 300 incoming UM students to the online Summer English Programme 2022

Today (June 29) marks the beginning of the ELC’s 3-week Summer English Programme (SEP) 2022, which will welcome over 300 students from Macau and surrounding areas who plan to enter University of Macau (UM) in August. The SEP 2022 aims to bridge students’ current academic language, conceptual and study abilities, to better acquaint them with the study expectations within an international university context. Nineteen experienced ELC teaching faculty will support the programme to assist students’ transition from high school to university.  Due to the current unstable COVID-19 situation in Macau, the SEP 2022 will take place online.

The programme will focus specifically on English and other skills necessary for academic and faculty-specific language environments that students will encounter upon university entry. The programme aims to support students through a comprehensive raft of in-house produced materials for instruction and support via Moodle, Zoom, Padlet, Screencast-o-matic, and other accessible technology platforms. Programme instructors also encourage student engagement in their classes through interactive and gamified learning activities connected to the language skills and vocabulary within the curriculum. Finally, the programme will address student motivation, learning, and assessment through integration of student-produced digital projects and an E-portfolio to exhibit a body of students’ work from the 3 weeks.    

The ELC wishes students the best for the Summer English Programme 2022 and their ongoing studies at UM, as we strive to support student success at the university.
