Abstract

As the Final Report of the Language Education Review highlights, students' low level of English proficiency seriously affects learning in Hong Kong's tertiary institutions and hinders students' potential to fully benefit from English-medium education. This problem is especially serious in self-funded degree programmes, as the students admitted onto these programmes very rarely have scores above 3 on the DSE examinations. This paper reports on a pilot study conducted at THEi aimed at combining Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) and IT innovation to support cognitive and linguistic scaffolding through blended learning.
