The FAH-ELC Summer English Programme 2021 successfully completed with about 300 incoming UM students

The English Language Centre (ELC) of Faculty of Arts and Humanities (FAH) recently organised the three-week Summer English Programme 2021 (June 30 to July 20) for about 300 incoming first-year students of the University of Macau (UM). This year’s programme aimed to help students adapt to UM’s study environment which uses English as the medium of instruction. Participating students said the programme significantly increased their confidence in English and improved their four language skills.

This year’s programme included a series of intensive courses with interactive online learning activities which included projects such as developing a promotional video, speaking journals and English for Specific Purposes (ESP) modules in which students of different UM faculties learn and practise using their subject-specific basic vocabulary through in-context passages and videos.

The programme was successfully completed on Tuesday, 20 July. Students were assessed using an innovative e-portfolio approach alongside other more traditional methods. Students showcased their new-found English confidence and abilities at getting ready for university-level study success in the upcoming academic year.
