Reflection

  • Miki-Hui_1_160x160_acf_cropped

    I became more confident in expressing myself and making connections with other people in English after participating in activities like orientation week and English conversation group. Going on exchange in Canada also allowed me to understand the importance of embracing diversity. I could not be more grateful for this exchange experience.

    Going on exchange has enriched my university life and also my person life. I learnt to adapt to an unfamiliar environment in a short time and enjoy everything Canada has to offer. Living away from home for the first time also allowed me to grow as a person, as I learnt to take care of myself in a new environment. I was able to reflect on my life and contemplate what makes a good life.

    It was so great and exciting that I got a chance to change my routine and experience a brand new life in America. The small class size in Bellarmine University makes the class very interactive and flexible. Besides learning, experiencing the American culture and meeting new friends were the best part of my exchange. I have tried so many new stuff and enriched myself in many ways. It was a very fruitful journey to me!

    I love teaching and that is the reason why I decided to study the ELED programme.Through this programme, not only am I exposed to various teaching methodologies to cater for individual differences, I am encouraged to think from the students’ perspectives.

    The ELED programme provides a good balance of courses to prepare me to become a professional, confident language teacher. Thanks to the many experiential learning activities organised by the programme, like teaching practice, study trip and the overseas immersion programme, I have precious opportunities to learn about teaching outside of university classrooms.

    Not only has this double degree programme enriched my subject knowledge and enhanced my metalinguistic awareness, it has also enabled me to develop an individualized teaching philosophy and incorporate theories as well as pedagogies into my own teaching practice.
