Teaching and Scholarly Interests:

  • Bilingual Studies & Communication

Ms Wience Lai graduated from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University where she was awarded a Bachelor of Arts in Contemporary English Language with first class honours. To further her interests in linguistics and language education, she subsequently pursued studies at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, where she received a Master of Philosophy in Linguistics, and a Postgraduate Diploma in Education with concentration in English (with distinction).

Prior to joining HKCC, she taught Linguistics and English in The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The Open University of Hong Kong and The Community College at Lingnan University respectively. During her time with The Community College at Lingnan University, Ms Lai taught English subjects in both the associate degree and pre-associate degree programmes, and was also engaged in coordinating and revamping courses, writing test and exam papers, producing assessment schemes, providing academic advising and counseling, as well as organising writing workshops and other language enhancement activities.

Her research interests lie mainly in phonetics and phonology of both English and Cantonese while she is also interested in language teaching, educational psychology and writing across the curriculum.

She loves travelling and has presented in international conferences, attended and even coordinated summer study programmes in the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany and Australia, in addition to paying leisure visits to France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Egypt, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan and of course, our mainland China.
