Our Language Learning Oasis has a broad selection of materials to improve general language proficiency and specific language skills in English, Putonghua, Cantonese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish. It also provides materials for preparing for public examinations such as IELTS, TOEFL, Putonghua Shuiping Ceshi (普 通 話 水 平 測 試 ), the Common Recruitment Examination of the HKSAR Government and Japanese Language Proficiency Test. In addition, we offer support to students to develop independent language-learning skills. Students can make use of these facilities to make progress at their own pace.
