"My journey in HKCC is unforgettable. I had never learned Japanese before, yet I developed a lifelong interest in it after enrolling in the Associate in Language and Culture programme. Learning different cultures has also broadened my horizons and deepened my understanding about the way to interact with people. With the passionate lecturers and great learning facilities, my two years of study at HKCC was a fulfilling journey. I was also glad to receive the HKCC Academic Progress Award and earn a place in the CPCE Dean’s List. Do everything with heart can help you achieve a lot!"
