HKU English Only Zone coming back this September.
“On the evening of September 2nd, 2015, about two weeks after I moved to HK for my masters degree at HKU, inspired by some chats with some fellow new HKUers, English Only Zone was born.WHY?HKU is also the most internationalized university in Asia. Walking on the campus, you can see students from all over the world, and you can hear languages from all over the world. However, most people just stay with those who speak the same language as they do, coz it is easier. But easy is boring, isnt it? I believe our limited time in HKU will be way more interesting and way better spent if we can come out from our comfort zone and interact and make friends with new people. And that was exactly what I did in that one year. And Im grateful that I did. You may want to ask: "shouldnt you be studying?I did that too, and did it hard. And I have all those great memories outside of the library, outside the school walls.WHAT THE HELL IS ENGLISH ONLY ZONE? It is a community where HKUers from diverse cultural backgrounds can come together, network with one another, and learn from each other. English is our common language. So it is not an English learning group, although we do get to practice the language, but this is not our primary goal.WHAT DO WE DO IN ENGLISH ONLY ZONE?Well, many things.
