English Learning Environment


English language is taught as a discrete subject at Good Hope School by a mixture of native and non-native speakers. Emphasis is placed on the need to develop an all-round English language capability. This capability is a prerequisite for all students if they are to communicate well in English and enter a Hong Kong, or a good overseas, university based upon examination success. To this end students are given a rich diet of learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. Large classes are made up of about 35 to 40 students, but there are smaller classes of 20 students, from S1 to S4, that are intended to encourage more interactive learning. Emphasis is put on teacher-led student-centered activities, rather than on didactic teaching styles, as this seems to be a more effective way to engage the modern student.













Cultural diversity within teacher and student populations

Good Hope has always prided itself on having a diverse range of teachers and students. Currently there are many Native English Teachers (NETs) in the school. As an English Medium of Instruction school (EMI), the whole staff body naturally has a good knowledge of English regardless of origin.

The student body is also culturally diverse. Besides local Cantonese students there are also a growing number of mainland Chinese students who have come from all parts of the motherland. There are also some students with European, Canadian or American backgrounds, and some who hail from Japan, Taiwan, Korea or Australia. Needless to say this variety of origin adds enormously to the rich cultural environment of Good Hope School.
