Peer English Tutoring

Peer English Practice: Building Your Social Confidence and HKU Network 

Peer English Tutoring connects you with a native or near-native English speaking Language Partner to practise conversational English in a stress-free environment. Spoken English is made easy by chatting about Food, Movies, Travel and Music at the signature Main Building of HKU!


The programme not only provides an opportunity for you to practise your spoken English but also creates a platform for cultural and knowledge exchange. You will be paired up for three 45-minute practice sessions. The programme will wrap up with a BONUS etiquette training session with practical tips:

  1. ‘Attire to admire’ - how to dress for any occasion?
  2. ‘Adequate etiquette’ - how not to embarrass yourself, or at least how to recover when you inevitably do?
  3. ‘Talk the talk’ – how to avoid getting tongue-tied in public or in private?

Any native or near-native English speakers are welcome to join as a Language Partner. CEDARS Reward Points will be given to recognise your contributions to support your peers. 

Want to brush up your spoken English and/or expand your social network at HKU, don’t hesitate to sign up
