UE個時已經pre-ref咗tiffany, 佢教得好好所以繼續reg佢
Tiffany教書好有熱誠, 幾悶既野都教得得意
俾分唔係鬆, 但又未去到killer level
跟足佢指示做野正常應該有B

功課有Language Discovery Project (25%), Inclass Time-essay (35%), Critical Exploration of Text (25%), Reflection Paper (5%), Class Participation (10%)

上堂即管瘋狂答問題, Tiffany認人好叻

CET高class mean多啲, ITE大炒低過class mean都有B+, 真心好開心
LDP做咗好耐+有grpmate carry, 所以有拉分

Peter 上堂會設計好多活動讓大家可以無咁悶 (佢自己都話個課程難)
英文差都唔緊要 Peter唔會特色偏心啲native speaker
Peter功課要求清晰具體 唔洗點追問都會掌握到 同埋佢改功課好細心好詳細 如果主動問問題 佢會好有心同你講更加多comment同詳細點改會更好

Attendance: 記得唔識答都要主動撞下比下反應 Peter好認得人 靠上堂答唔答問題比分
CET: 唔好盡抄sample, 因為大部分sample都係伏 (最好提早做成份先交draft, 等peter直接comment哂你有咩改)
LDP: 咁小字就唔好搵partner, 自己一個完成 好過同人夾
Reflective writing: 要寫得全面 唔好淨係重點講一兩個point
Timed essay: 唔洗太長 我淨係寫左六百字 一定要match題目背景同起承轉合 如果唔係Grammar幾好都扣分 (例如叫你寫個故事 apply 獎學金就一定要前後寫埋apply用途, 你讀邊科, 自己優點, 唔係淨係寫個故事就夠)

功課交之前去ELC writing studio check多幾次唔難靚Grade

Studied in 2019/20 Semester B.
Esther is very nice and well-prepared for the class. She makes the class fun and easy to follow, despite it's an online class due to the disruption of Wuhan coronavirus.
The courseworks are the same as the previous comments, and their suggestions are still valid. Do follow your instructor's guidelines and comments to get a better grade:)
Strongly recommend Esther to those who are looking for a fun class and will be dedicated to the course. Your hard work (and English ability) = Your final grade
P.S. it's better to get 85% or more for an A grade (80% or above would be an A-)

19/20讀揀唔到
懷疑自己個組俾佢針
Dse英文4 ielts 6.5
但份份野都below mean
講野又句句有骨咁
Gp pj跟足佢講既野改又勁低分
都唔知佢想點
加上上堂會點堂叫人讀文
如果pre reg中佢建議立即reg走
否則祝你好運

2019/20 SemA讀
language discovery project 1000 words
Inclass timed essay
Reflection on inclass essay 200 words
Critical Exploration of Text 750 words

成個course算輕鬆,language discovery project係2-3人一組寫1000字,好易寫爆字,份野個內容有啲似linguistic啲野,研究下邊啲字係邊個範疇比較常用,解釋下原因咁。
最難搞係inclass essay,似dse eng writing。預先畀8條題目你,主要係寫返你自己嘅個人經歷,例如遇過最大嘅困難、你買過最難忘嘅嘢。難係難在我已經好耐冇寫過呢啲文,好多字都唔記得點串。建議大家可以8題都寫定大綱,查定啲會用到嘅字先。
Sarah好靚,講野好溫柔

算係幾輕鬆嘅course
關於assignment之前有人分享過
亦都冇咩變動

特別要提Jenifer好畀心機教
講解清晰,而且都ok手鬆,強烈推薦!!

每次上堂前都要點名,遲過15分鐘就要扣分。
上堂不停要人答佢問題,冇人答就跟住attendance list輪流問,每堂至少問1-2round。
Lecturer對呢個course嘅資料唔太了解,連assignment字數&deadline都唔知,任何大小事都話要問完supervisor先答到我地。
因為呢個course新開,以上所講嘅都尚可容忍,但身為一個lecturer竟然連上堂嘅日子係公眾假期都唔知,喺公眾假期前一日仲出email叫我地聽日上堂記得要present...
仲要比分極手緊,真係可避則避。

讀完之後覺得依科比起其他英文GE應該要輕鬆得多 (可能因為新開)
有2份assignment同1個in-class essay
個人覺得最難嘅係第1份assignment Language Discovery project(25%), 有3條題目俾你揀, 大致都係關於啲verb點解要咁用, 唔同用法會唔會有唔同意思之類, 要用coca個網去搵data support返你篇文 (上堂會教)
第2份Critical Exploration of texts(25%), 就係俾3篇文你揀, 再分析下佢啲genre, purpose同target audience, 相對第1份簡單好多
之後個in-class essay(35%), 會係之前俾定8條題目你, 其中一條就係你個日要作嘅(唔會話俾你知係邊條), 所以你要準備哂8條題目 (唔同ta唔同題目, 但同一個ta就全部一樣)
最後有一個佔5%嘅咩feedback, tutor會派返篇改好in-class essay俾你, 你自己寫下有咩可以改善下篇essay, 大紉200字到
平時分就attendance同埋participation (10%)

P.S. 好好彩咁reg咗個好tutor Tiffany, 佢好有心咁教, 堂堂都會準備哂啲notes俾我地, 又會有activities等我地真係清楚明白個堂學緊啲咩, 又會安排時間俾我地consult下啲功課(真心要consult 唔係好易錯方向) 最warm係專登係Halloween請我地食糖, 真係一個好好嘅tutor!

分數比重:
Language discovery project (25%)
In-class timed essay + 200 words reflective essay (35%+5%)
Critical exploration of text (25%)
Participation (10%)
Assignment 之間有一啲小presentation同分組活動,係Pieta自己俾嘅,我諗係計participation分啩。不過本身個course已經多野做咁樣就百上加斤喇。好在兩份assignment有sample跟,guidelines算清晰,所以唔算吃力。LD係搵幾隻字做corpus研究,做完一頭霧水;timed essay俾八條問題你幾日前prep然後出一題,無得你揀,題目似dse形式,最緊要對題。派分後再寫二百字反思;CET draft唔計分,Pieta只係計tentative score,再俾參考分數等你改final。佢嘅評語幾清晰,跟著改應該唔差得去邊。

感覺Pieta係跟足呢個course嘅標準去改卷,啲分數每個domain都寫曬原因,唔知其他tutor係點喇

呢科workload唔算太重,個course有3份短篇essay要交+要作一份in-class writing
個tutor份人幾nice,上佢堂又唔會悶,會有幾多group discussions同片睇咁,但佢派啲grade就...
自問做assignment認真 (draft完有consult tutor,跟佢要求嚟make amendments+問清楚啲assignment有咩要求)+英文又唔算差 (英文系)
但出嚟個grade咁樣
reg呢個tutor前請三思
