Jeremy Lee 

Student, aged 14 (Hong Kong) 

 

Last summer, I participated in a programme held by Cambridge Academy of English (CAE). It was a three-week course to improve English skills and build relationships with people coming from different nations in a similar age group. To let students learn to be independent, the school provided homestay, learning to be sociable and studying the cultures in Britain. 

  

There were lessons and activities from Monday to Saturday, but free time on Sundays. School started from 9 to 5. The programme started again after dinner at homestay from around 7 to 10:30. The learning environment is very free and non-stressful as it let students learn in a fun and interactive way, such as playing warm-up games.

Students learned English in a more advanced level in the afternoon session, like doing exam papers, practicing English speaking, etc. Hence, students would learn in a more comprehensive and educated way and completely upgrade themselves in different regions. This course wasn't only exam-oriented, but also acted to improve us in English literature and cultural learnings, which I like the most. Students were brought to places like going to the British Museum, watching Shakespeare's plays, experiencing punting, letting students to have some unforgettable memories.  

  

Although this CAE programme has only three weeks, it really gives out knowledgeable experiences to me, and I really appreciate most. It is a wonderful trip and you will regret if you don't try once.

這個暑假,我參加了劍橋英語學院(CAE)舉辦的一項課程。這是一個為期三週的課程,旨在提高英語技能,並與來自不同年齡及不同國家的人建立關係。為了讓學生學會獨立,學校提供了寄宿家庭,不僅提供子學習社交技巧的平台,還能學習英國文化。

 

週一至週六有各㮔課程和活動,週日則是自由時間。上學時間由日間九時至五時,在寄宿家庭吃過晚飯後,再繼續七時至十時半的晚間課程。這種環境是非常自由且無壓力,因為課堂讓學生以有趣和互動的方式學習,例如玩熱身遊戲。在下午的課程,學生學習較高水平的英語,例如做試卷,練習英語口語等。因此,學生會在全面及良好教育方式下學習,且在不同範疇中提升自我。這課程不僅重視考試,同時改善我們在英國文學和文化方面的水平,這是我最喜歡的方地。學校會帶學生們㺫一些地方參觀,例如去大英博物館、觀嘗莎士比亞的戲劇、在劍橋的河上泛舟,讓我們有一些難忘的回憶。

 

儘管此CAE課程只有三個星期,但它確實為我帶來了豐富的經驗,對此我深表感謝。這是一次美妙的旅程,如果不嘗試一次你將會後悔。

家長黄健的推薦

家長(中國) 

 

众所周知,英国是一个教育资源丰富、教育理念十分发达的国家。一直以来,我一直希望女儿出国读书,一方面开阔视野,另一方面不知潜意识里是否也想弥补我年轻时错失出国读书机会的遗憾。我一直在想如果没有和UK Education Garden相遇,我孩子学习生活轨迹可能是另外一个样子。直到2018年的某一天,在一个偶然的机会认识了Melissa。 

  

对于出国学习,女儿和我的意见相左,这个年纪的孩子,父母的意见往往造成相反的结果。Melissa了解到我的困惑后,建议让我女儿先来英国上两个星期的Summer Couse,让她切身感受下真实的国外学习生活。Melissa根据我女儿的兴趣爱好和今后升学的意愿推荐了在剑桥CSVPA 2018年暑期的Drama课程。我惊讶地发现,经过两个礼拜的学习,我女儿深深地喜欢上这个地方和这里的学习。当看着女儿和同学相拥哭泣告别的时候,我心中暗喜我和Melissa的“计谋”成功了。 

  

现在女儿已经在CSVPA学习一年多了,在这个过程中,Melissa全方位从孩子办理签证到今后孩子大学申请等方面提供了专业指导和帮助,积极和学校等相关部门沟通、解决我们遇到的实际困难。看到女儿每天开心地在剑桥这个美丽的地方学习生活,我就十分感谢Melissa。某种程度讲,是她专业服务使我孩子做出了改变,让我女儿在最好的年纪能够享受最好的教育。期待今后能从UK Education Garden获得更多教育的资讯和专业的建议。谢谢!

A parent form China

It is universal knowledge that the UK has a wealth of educational resources and the UK is at the top of the world's teaching philosophy. We always hope our daughter would have a chance to study abroad and to see the world. Besides, it is my childhood dreams unfulfilled. We met Melissa in 2018, and my daughter's story has started to change.

My teenage daughter was not interested in studying in the UK. She always tried to do and think the opposite of what her parents suggested. After talking to Melissa, she suggested that my daughter might be interested in a Cambridge school course in Drama with CSVPA, and it was an excellent chance to let her sample the taste of studying in the UK. It amazed me how much she has grown to love the UK, and she has learnt there after 2 weeks. She even cried when saying good-bye to her classmates. I was so happy why that little secret plan I had with Melissa.

My daughter has studied in CSVPA for 1.5 years, and Melissa has helped with visa application and communication with the school. I cannot describe how much I appreciate Melissa's professional effort to make my daughter enjoy her student life in beautiful Cambridge with world-class education—looking forward to more information and professional advice from UK Education Garden. Thank you!

黃麗卿牧師的推薦 

家長 (香港) 

2017年,對我或是我的孩子而言,是一個特別難忘的暑假。在英國教育園 的幫助下,我們都過了一個愉快及充實的假期。 

​ 

一直以來,我都希望讓將要升高中的孩子能到海外讀一次 summer course; 一方面可增廣見聞,另一方面也對他的英語能力作一次軟性的評估。經過朋友介紹,2017年報讀了英國劍橋英語學院 (CAE) 作為第一次海外暑期課程的經驗。 

​ 

這課程給我最大的驚喜是只得他一個操中文的亞洲人。如此一來,他整個 3星期的學習必需在英語的氛圍中進行。他寄宿在一個英國家庭,他學習自律、管理時間、處理自己日常生活和作息的安排; 並學習與不同國籍的同學交流,彼此合作,生活非常融洽。 

​ 

三星期過了,學校對他語文能力、合群和性格的評估都很不錯。另一個暑假也即將開始,他與這些外國同學們仍保持聯絡。前段時間,他要做一個關於其他國籍和宗教的研究,他在 whatsapp 中訪問其中的一些外國同學,得到第一手資料,非常寶貴。 

​ 

我自己已經 25 年沒有踏足劍橋,再次探訪還是非常喜愛這個 人傑地靈、如詩如畫,並不斷孕育知識的地方!

Recommendation from Priest Wong Lai Hing

Parent (Hong Kong)

 

For both my child and me, we all have an unforgettable summer in 2017. With the help of the UK Education Garden, we had a happy and fruitful holiday. 

 

We had always planned to enrol our child in an overseas summer course to broaden his horizons and see how confident he was with his English. We got to know UK Education Garden and enrolled in Cambridge Academy of English (CAE) for his first overseas summer course experience through a friend. 

 

One of the surprises he had was that he was the only Chinese-speaking Asian, so he immersed himself in a full-on English environment for 3 whole weeks. He stayed with a local host family. He has learned self-discipline and time management. He has also known to study well and get along with classmates from different countries through projects and everyday interactions. 

 

The school gave him excellent feedback upon his language ability, teamwork and characters. After nearly a year, he is still in touch with his classmates who he met in Cambridge. When he did his school project on nationalities and religions, he even messaged some of his classmates for raw data! 

 

The last time I came to Cambridge was 25 years ago. I was still fascinated when I revisited this remarkable and beautiful place that inspired people to learn more about the world.

I am CUHK graduate in 1992.  I have participated UK work and living sharing session organized by CUHK Alumni last Sat. 

  

I am deeply impressed by your open sharing in how to land a job in the UK as 'fresh' people to a new country and guide us to carefully prepare an impactful CV and keep learning attitude in whatever roles.  Your career progression in the UK is inspiring to us. 

  

I have two kids in secondary schools who plan to study in the UK in Sep 2021.  With the new offer in BNO, I am struggling to move my whole family to UK or not, or leave two kids there. One of the significant obstacles is getting job opportunities at my age.  

  

I can image several top barriers like language gap, culture gap and working style. Making the initial jump is not an easy step.  It looks to me that a senior/manager role is not possible for me in a new culture. No matter how equality is emphasized in a country, Chinese heading western staff is not widely accepted.  This is what I learnt from CUHK friends who moved to Canada and Australia to work.  

​ 

Just find Happy England Facebook, and I will read more sharing from your site. 

  

Lastly, thanks for your effort in taking precious time to prepare a valuable sharing with alumni last Sat. 

來自香港的父母

我於1992年畢業於香港中文大學。我參加了上週六由香港中文大學校友舉辦的英國工作和生活分享會。Melissa 真誠分享最令我印象深刻。例如來到一個新地方怎樣以「新鮮人」的身份在英國找到一份工作,並指導我們怎樣仔細地準備一份具競爭力的履歷,在任何角色下都要保持學習態度。你在英國的身事業發展確實地啟發了我們。

 

我有兩個在香港就讀中學的孩子計劃在2021年9月到英國讀書。隨着新的BNO簽證安排,我對是否全家一起搬到英國,或只留下兩個孩子在英國讀書十分掙扎。其中一個最大的障礙是我這個年齡在英國能否得到工作機會。

 

我能夠想像到移民英國的幾個主要障礙,例如語言差距,文化差距和工作模式。這使得踏出第一步並不是容易的事。就此看來,不太可能在新文化環境中擔任高級/經理職位。這點我認為一個國家如何強調平等也毫無關係,因為西方社會沒有廣泛接受中國人帶領西方人的情況。這是我從移居澳洲或加拿大工作的中大朋友中得知。

 

最近找到Happy England Facebook page,而希望可以在那裡看都更多會您們的分享。

 

最後,感謝您在上週六抽出寶貴時間給予一班校友準備寶貴的分享。
