HCL syllabus aims to develop CL students’ linguistics skills at higher levels of proficiency and cultural knowledge. Students taking HCL will take both CL and HCL examinations. HCL assessment emphasises reading comprehension and written communication.

  • Mother Tongue Fortnight(母语双周)
    During the MTL Fortnights, a range of outside-classroom MTL activities are provided to enable students to learn and use MTL in novel and engaging ways. The specially designed programme aims to create an environment that encourages students to use CL and appreciate the culture associated with the language.
