Assignment:
Readings for every lesson
3 Writings ( Restaurant review, Narrative Writing, Final essay)
Group Website making

The teacher is very nice and kind. But most of the assignments are difficult and hard to know the way of getting good results. Also, many language students took this class and make it hard to have better results.

課程:依科要係咁睇readings 唔睇上堂得個坐字亦唔會明 啲readings都幾難 無得走堂亦唔係hea科
功課:要寫食評 故事 同一篇critical essay 要好識咁形容食物 色香味 寫故仔 英文水平亦要有翻咁上下 英文唔識花巧整色整水嗰啲唔建議讀
Project: 佔30% 20% 係整網頁 介紹香港一個地方 幾睇同咩人一組 每人打啲 大家有用心唔會低分 10% 係present 個人俾分

Mrs Bautista performs her role as an instructor well but she may not be very inspiring.

She doesn't teach Travel Writing anymore though.

Ashley Wong is a good teacher. You may choose her instead.

3篇writing(20%, 20%, 30%),1個group assignment(20%),加present (10%)
呢個tutor算有趣,但就一定要上堂,佢會問問題,放break都要討論。
每個禮拜都要睇兩至三篇reading,啲reading生字又難又長,加上佢上堂果時會問番你,有時仲會比張quiz紙你問問題,自己覺得好大workload,所以後咪都無咩點睇。
同埋每個禮拜都要寫travel journal,最後會收黎睇,一定要做。
最緊要係writing扣題,佢ppt寫啲要求都幾清楚,同埋上堂會比啲錯誤sample你,提你唔好寫錯邊啲野,呢個就一定要聽,因為佢都幾挑剔,要好小心,跟足又少grammar mistake就得。
最後果個佔30%嘅係critical essay,我個人覺得第4題最好寫,因為我好怕睇長reading,但呢題就係graphic novel,文字少,圖畫多,有趣啲。雖然佢話可以引用其他作家嘅評論,但佢又話想你比獨到意見出黎,唔好用人地意見最好,我都唔知佢想點,就無搵過任何資料自己諗,最後好彩有A。所以我諗可能佢係想睇啲原創性嘅意見多過人地已經諗咗出黎嘅野。
group project 就係佢幫你分組,整個travel website,每個人寫一part,最好比佢覺得你有創意,寫嘅野特別,唔好禁死古古,去果時影多啲相,咁先有野塞滿個website。
個present係個人計分,除咗講個website之外,佢想你帶啲個人睇法出黎,即係你自己對果個地方有咩反思,價值觀咁,我地果班就幾乎組組都準備咗條片。
整體黎講我覺得佢教得幾好幾nice,但有咩要求唔明一定要問清楚,因為佢真係幾挑剔。

workload: 3份indi, 1份group做網頁(都係要寫文), participation

呢個miss唔算伏, 但係每個星期上堂都好似受難曲咁, 要做好多class activities, 一定要答佢問題, 放break都係做緊佢d題目, 放完break要返去答問題

attendance逐堂計,唔好唔上堂

冇得自己分組, 佢會assign組員比你, 睇你好唔好彩抽中同勁人一組

距ge 問題 在於比好多extra 嘢。人地隔離班根本吾洗present readings.但系距就要我地present 一個鐘。最衰系無講明要求,不停講showing not telling 但又吾解釋。叫你做draft 又吾幫你睇,連檢查都無。peer review 純粹系hea 時間。總結:多耶做,無耶學 。吾好比travel 個名呃你。

淨係就課程內容講的話,個人覺得幾有趣,d reading係好睇嘅,同埋因為要整travel website所以有機會同d組員出去遊蕩,其實都幾開心:)
各個tutor上堂模式都有d唔同,Candy要每個星期清reading(2-3份/week,最長個份好似有20頁),因為上堂頭兩個鐘要你同d同學做有關d reading嘅discussion,再present你地嘅findings,跟住個一個鐘通常係每組輪流每星期負責一個in-class activity,類似係帶成班同學睇一篇reading,但係candy好強調呢個唔係present,佢expect有好多同學之間嘅interaction,所以一定要帶動全班去討論。簡單講就想係互動&活動教學。
workload方面好重,呢科相對人院yr1其他科黎講都算多野做,再加上candy比較chur(聽講唔係個個導師都要人每個禮拜清reading,同埋in-class activity好似係佢自己另加),所以會更加heavy。
grade方面,因為candy淨係會睇outline唔睇draft,另外雖然有同學交換睇draft互評嘅環節,但呢個其實都無乜用,淨係知reading裡面d技巧盡量用多d好似會高分d。大grade就派得正正常常啦。
單純中意去旅行嘅話唔建議reg呢科,因為佢其實同旅遊本身嘅關係不大,不過中意睇遊記嘅話,可能會讀得幾開心,可以reg黎試下。tutor方面,唔怕chur或者中意上堂講好多野有好多interaction嘅話candy係reg得過嘅,不過怕辛苦或者上堂淨係中意聽同jot notes就唔好reg candy la,會好難捱,揾第二個啦。

佢好好玩,都教得好架~(仲真係成日周圍去旅行)
每堂都要作短文同揀人讀出黎,遲到佢仲會罰人表演XD
呢科係幾有趣,不過佢俾分都唔鬆。
之後仲有要揀個地方介紹,如果搶先up到d好玩既地方,咁做個project就好正~

Tian 係幾有心教 幾有耐心嘅Tutor黎
上堂基本上第一時間就要做短文寫作
佢會要人做下Sharing
呢堂每個禮拜都會要你預習睇文先
我就乖乖哋每次上堂之前都睇曬所以基本上佢問嘅野我都知
我英文唔好 當初揀呢科都係因為已經冇乜好揀
主要會有三份Essay 要寫
三份佢都會留Comments 等你知有乜可以進步
三份Essay我都大約72﹣75/ 100 我記得最高分好似9x都有
但出黎我都有B+

其實呢科workload不大, 因為幾個星期先要交一次文, ard 500字就得, 之前仲會叫你作draft, 所以唔會chur, 不過改得比較緊係真的
sem尾要做group project和critical essay, group project係要去一個地方, 然後整一個website介紹佢(using weebly/wix) 不過我個group就淨係做左guideline要求的requirement, 其他group就做得多好多, 所以我個project就唔高分
所以溫馨提示係個website要好多好多information
成個course最難應該就係critical essay, 不過都係ard800字左右, 但sem尾太忙所以我冇去consultation,個分就麻麻
呢一科真係上得好開心同真係學到野, 最後悔係個project同essay做得唔好,所以我個grade唔太好

The course coordinator will upload a lot of reading which includes a lot of difficult words to Blackboard. There are only 3 small notes teaching you how to write the descriptive writing, the narrative writing and the critical essay. You can read a lot of travel stories in this course but cannot learn the skills of travel writing. This is not what I expected and I felt quite upset. For example, when I wrote a restaurant review for Assignment 1: descriptive writing, this course will only teach you what to include in a restaurant review but not the descriptive and food words. When I wrote the critcal essay, I needed to refer to the course reading which really restricted my ideas and critical thinking.

導師俾individual assignments 分非常緊手, critical essay 又話可以好free 咁寫, 點知分數只係中規中矩; group project 鬆手好多, 但group project 係要去一個HK 的地方explore, 然後用wix, weebly, etc. 整website and then presentation! 我覺得幾好玩, 但你或會覺得time-consuming!
唔知係唔係今個sem 有CLASS ge students, 對senior students 俾分真係十分緊手! 或可能另外一班的另外一位導師俾分較鬆手!

Course coordinator 應重新審視此course ge structure and outline, 不過都應該好難, 佢連upload 係Blackboard ge assignment guideline 都係上個sem, 寫住"A link to the website must be sent to your instructor by Dec. 3rd, 9 am." and "Critical Essay due before Dec. 2, 9:00 AM."

My final recommendation: If you have very good skills of writing stories and using descriptive words to describe a person, food or a place, you could really choose this course; if not, please do not choose it because this course will not teach you many writing skills and you will only read the reading the course coordinator has selected.

3 Essays (Travel Snapshot, Travel Narrative and Critical Essay)
1 Group Project and Presentation (Creating website)

Full of readings and boring, final critical essay is related to readings.

assignment一共3份,每一份都有簡單既guideline
一份group project 做website,最尾個堂present,簡單介紹反自己做個part就ok。
In class writing 有三次:兩次一組寫一份, 一次個人。
每星期都有readings 同group discussion,上堂氣氛輕鬆而且tutor比分幾鬆手。

我自己讀中中, 只係識用英文寫academic essay, 但呢科要求我地描寫旅行所見所聞, 我覺得唔係咁易handle, 我既建議係, 有學過先好報, 咁會輕鬆D.

assignment方面要寫兩篇旅遊撰記, 一篇critical essay, 1 group project (website黎)

依科要不停作旅遊類文章⋯堂堂都要讀readings and did discussion...
And you have to travel somewhere in hk with your group mates for the group project....
I think this course is quite heavy workload especially your would feel unaffordable after week 6/7 due to your other courses...

But I think if you put your heart and show your hard working to your tutor you would possibly get a B or above...

I just think I am so lucky got a A- for this course which made me surprised.
Just complete your works with heart and thus make your tutor enjoy your writings!

呢一科其實我覺得係 Paul 教得好多過本身呢科嘅設計,或者係curriculum。
Paul 本身比較著重 discussion,同埋學生對於 readings 的理解,所以係上堂個陣 Paul 成日都話要用英文——而咁樣先可以更有效咁真正咁學到嘢。

呢科嘅 assignment 唔複雜,幾篇 600-800 字以內嘅文,再加一篇 1000-1500 字左右嘅 reflection。
Project 就真係有少少考你之前有無上堂,因為要用得翻之前學過嘅嘢。
