Message from the Head

Esther Tong


Welcome to the Division of Languages and Communication!

Our Division is committed to the pursuit of excellence in learning and teaching for the benefits of our students. As educators, we strive to enrich our students’ language learning experience inside and outside the classroom, support their attainment of academic, literacy and language standards required for further study, equip them with the communicative competence needed to survive and thrive in the workplace, and help them develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills indispensable in the volatile, challenging 21st century.

At the same time, we champion research in language and communication disciplines through collaborative and innovative initiatives in curriculum design, pedagogical approaches and student development. By hosting the CPCE Centre for Pedagogic Research (CPCECPR), we aspire to not only enhance the scholarship of teaching and learning and pedagogic research but also inform the practice of teaching in the higher education sector. You can find out more about CPCECPR here .

Our team members work in a collegial environment where sharing and collaboration are encouraged and valued.

May I invite you to browse our website to find out more about, among others, our students and staff, our activities and our programme offerings.
