English Language Buddy Scheme (ELBS)

The Center for Language Education welcomes you to join the English Language Buddy Scheme (ELBS)! By joining the program, you will be able to improve your confidence and fluency in oral English by interacting with your “Buddy” (a student leader fluent in English) and your group. Your group will meet regularly and do fun activities together such as having meals, watching movies, enjoying hikes or playing sports. We also organize workshops to help you strengthen your socializing and other skills.


This program is completely FREE of charge. Please come to our Orientation Night and get to know your “Buddy” and group! Space is limited, so what are you waiting for? Join us and register now!
