TWGHs S. C.

As an initiative to help Junior Secondary students adapting to a Total English Language learning environment in Senior Secondary in TWGHs S. C. Gaw Memorial College, a school-based Language Across Curriculum Programme has been implemented as from September 2010.  To enhance students’ language ability and wider their exposure to English learning, Junior Integrated Humanities (History, Geography, Social Studies & Liberal Studies) and Junior Integrated Science (General Science, Physics, Chemistry & Biology) are taught in English, i.e., English is used as the medium of instruction (EMI).  To enable students to learn more effectively in English, the following strategies have been formulated and put in place.  They are:

  1. Learning English through IH & IS --- Collaboration between Junior IH / IS and English

  2. Learning Outcome --- Learning English through IH & IS

In addition, English Language Bridging Programme has been designed and uploaded onto the school intranet for students' self-learning. 

  1. Secondary One --- Student Bridging Handbook for English Learning (Integrated Humanities & Integrated Science)

  2. EMI Learning Kit (For English Learning in Integrated Humanities & Integrated Science) on the eClass
