Student Sharing

Fiona Chak (M.Phil. 2023)

My experience at the department has been fruitful and rewarding – one of the most important milestones in my life. In the past three years, I have been navigating through the world of top-notch sociolinguists where boundaries are stretched, and creativity is unleashed under the guidance of a group of passionate faculty members in the department. I am grateful for the ample opportunities given, which are highly useful for my career development.

Echo Yuan (M.Phil. 2020)

My journey at our department was wonderful. The program was well-designed so that I could balance research, coursework, and teaching. My research had ups and downs, but I finally came through. I miss every advising meeting with my supervisor and also enjoy once-in-a-while chats and gatherings with other faculty members.

Arlynn Alarcon (M.Phil. 2015)

The courses in the programme have helped me in developing my skills to prepare myself for my aspirations of teaching English to ESL students in Hong Kong. As for the professors, they have been really helpful as they guided me throughout the years as I conducted my research. I highly recommend this programme to anyone interested in AEL and research.

Kelvin Lui (M.Phil. 2011)

The close collaboration with faculty to devote myself in a specialised research agenda in language and ethnicity was rewarding. The unceasing encouragement by my dissertation supervisor to communicate my research findings in seminars and conferences was helpful for my professional development. I was also highly appreciative of the teaching assistant opportunities offered.
