Arthur Samy Language Learning Centre (ASLLC) is the self-access centre of the Centre for Language in Education (CLE) at the Education University of Hong Kong. ASLLC is nice and cosy as a place for students to take part in informal language activities, study languages on their own or in small groups. ASLLC provides a wide-range of self-access language learning (SALL) software, workshops and consultations to help students develop language proficiency and autonomy in learning in Chinese, English and Putonghua.

Here’s a virtual tour of ASLLC.

The English Language Centre (ELC) at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University has had a self-access centre for language learning for 25 years. The Centre for Independent language Learning (CILL), located in Room A305, has gone through several incarnations over the years. Currently we are focusing on it being a base for students to meet teachers and work together in groups. The Centre, now designed with a coffee-shop feel, has group study areas, individual study rooms, a VR Space and MoCoWs, as well as our latest addition, Temi, a robot who can give students a guided tour.

Here’s a one shot video highlighting its features.

For more information about CILL, please contact Joe Ching (joe.ching@polyu.edu.hk) at the ELC.

The Center for Language Education (CLE) was established in 2012 with its core mission aimed at delivering the University’s language enhancement programs. These include English and Chinese for Academic Purposes and Specific Purposes for both undergraduates and postgraduates. We collaborate with various academic departments to provide language support for students who are writing up their capstone projects or theses. We are also responsible for courses in Third Languages, including modern European and Asian languages, as well as classical Latin and Greek. And on top of the formal curriculum, CLE also offers extra-curricula English and Chinese enrichment programmes and individual advising services.
