The Liberal Art University in Hong Kong

Our Mission


The Centre for English and Additional Languages (CEAL) offers a range of core and elective courses in addition to co-curricular language activities in order to enhance the thinking and English language skills of students, as well as to provide language support to help students succeed in their academic studies.

CEAL further offers a range of both credit and non-credit bearing additional language courses (such as Japanese, Korean, Spanish & French) which also introduce students to new cultures, within the context of a liberal arts education.

Our English Language Support Service (ELSS) is staffed by 5 Visiting English Tutors (VETs) and offers a range of English academic services such as Writing Tutorial Service (WTS), IELTS Workshops, Speaking Tutorial Service (STS), a Drop In Centre, and more, in order to enhance students' English language skill set, and provide support with academic study.

In addition to our academic services, the VETs also organize a variety of social events throughout the academic year as a way to engage students in English in a more informal setting. Events on offer include Movie Nights, Game Nights, a Book Club and more! The ELSS also works with the OSA, the Hostels and academic departments to create interesting and engaging English-based events.
