The area of Concentration Studies I took has enhanced my competence in bilingualism and literature. It emphasised interactive teaching and learning through different kinds of activities and media, such as film appreciation and commentary through group discussions. This mode of study has made learning more fun and effective.

CIE has a strong academic culture which encourages students to learn, practice and strive for the best.

Every musician has his/her own path to go, and you should find out your own way. It’s pointless to follow others. What everybody else wants may not be exactly what you want.

Visual Arts
General Education Courses widened my horizons in addition to my own concentration studies. The programme has enhanced my common sense, and is applicable in my daily life. Let’s say if I am going to be a parent someday, something I learnt from the Psychology class will be useful; it would definitely help me to better understand my own children.

I appreciate General Education Courses at CIE which helped me to figure out my own interest and strength like a torch showing clear directions. For example, reading English poems and novels is required by the curriculum, and it changes my reading habits. As a singer songwriter, reading books in a foreign language enriches my vocabulary bank, stimulating my imagination which helps a lot for song writing. The AD programme has brought me new perspectives.
