He is a lecturer in English at HKCC and formerly held a teaching post at Chinese Y.M.C.A. Secondary School together with The Community College at Lingnan University.
His teaching interests cover phonetics, oral communication, English syntax and academic writing. In this vein, on top of classes concerning contemporary English, he has also been extensively involved in delivering workshops on English through drama and film, International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and learners’ strategy for English Language in the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education.
His research interests are in phonetics, methodology, second language acquisition and pedagogical grammar. His master’s thesis, supervised by Professor Francis Nolan (Cantab), centres on the degree of variations on stop and fricative sounds in speech amongst Hong Kong and English RP speakers. Thereafter, he works and contributes to emphasise how fine phonetic cues of speech local students may adhere to for the sake of a sound native accent in either British or American English.
