A Warm Welcome from the ELC to more than 300 Incoming UM Students for the Summer English Programme 2023

Over 300 students, from Macau and surrounding areas, who plan to enter the University of Macau in August will be participating in the ELC’s 3-week Summer English Programme that begins today (28 June). The programme aims to prepare the students for university-level academic language, skills and study expectations. Supported by experienced English language instructors, the programme will assist the students in transitioning from high school to university.

The Summer English Programme 2023 will focus on improving the students’ English language proficiency and skills necessary for academic and faculty-specific language environments. To achieve this goal, the programme will utilize in-house produced materials for instruction and support via Moodle and other accessible technology platforms. The instructors also encourage student engagement through interactive and academic learning activities that are connected to the language skills and vocabulary within the curriculum. Additionally, the programme will address student motivation, learning, and assessment through the integration of student-produced digital projects and an e-portfolio that will showcase their work over the 3 weeks.

The ELC hopes that the Summer English Programme 2023 will provide the students with a solid foundation for their ongoing studies at the University of Macau. As always, the ELC is committed to supporting student success at the university.
