  • To increase students' motivation in learning and using English as a means of communication

(III) Situational Analysis

1. Strengths

  • 1.1 The English Panel has a panel of experienced, well-qualified and benchmarked teachers.
  • 1.2 The School is playing a supportive role in promoting language teaching and learning in terms of resources for the purchase of materials and outsourcing services.
  • 1.3 A form coordinator system has been established to facilitate curriculum planning and implementation.
  • 1.4 The establishment of the English Language Room is enhancing the use of IT in language learning.
  • 1.5 The school has introduced external support for the development of the English curriculum and professional expertise.

2. Weaknesses

  • 2.1  Most students have not formed a regular reading habit and some have limited exposure to real use of English in life.
  • 2.2  Though most learners are fluent in expressing ideas in writing and speaking, they need further polish on clarity and accuracy.
  • 2.3  Catering learner diversity is an area to be further explored for higher effectiveness of teaching and learning.

3. Opportunities

  • 3.1 The employment of new English teachers may bring new ideas and stimulation to the teaching, learning and environment of English.
  • 3.2 The training of a team of capable students to become the English Ambassadors might create a modeling effect in school.
  • 3.3 There are chances for collaboration with content areas (Integrated Science, General Studies) to enhance students' English learning through Language Across Curriculum (LAC). 

4 Threats

  • 4.1 The style of learning has changed a lot as most youngsters are very much into digital gadgets for recreational purposes.  Teachers need to pay more effort on preparing lessons with more engaging activities and practices.
  • 4.2 The change and reduction in manpower may lead to confusion in transition and heavier workload.
  • 4.3 There might be insufficient English environment that may hinder students' spontaneity in reacting and responding to English.
