Sometimes people ask me why there are so many non-English materials in the English Corner. You can find the answer here: engp.wordpress.com/english-corner/why-are-there-so-many-non-english-things-in-the-english-corner

About the English Corner

The English Corner at SKH Lam Woo Memorial Secondary School is a place where students can drop in at lunch or after school to play games, watch movies or chat with friends. They can also borrow movies, music CDs, books, manga and magazines.

English Corner
A wide variety of activities are available

The English Corner, or ‘Eng Con’ as it is called by students, is open every school day at lunch (1:10 – 1:40) and after school (3:45 – 5:00). It began operations in September 2006 and is  run by a team of approximately 50 students from Forms One to Five.

A fun and attractive environment

The English Corner has been successful in helping create an English-rich environment at the school. In past years, it was visited more than 10,000 times per year and students borrowed more than 8,000 items per year. However, this year we have seen a sharp decline in borrowing and attendance.

A place to relax and be with friends

We have a wide range of resources—movies, music CDs, books, magazines and manga. To encourage students to broaden their horizons and develop interests in other cultures, we also stock a variety of non-English language materials (including Japanese and Korean music CDs). Y

A place for cultural exchange

In the English Corner, students also express their feelings in several notebooks and sketchbooks. You can see some of their comments and sketches on this blog: No One Beside Me

  2. English Corner is a great place to learn English because we can borrow English books and movies there. We can also talk with the teachers and classmates using English so that we can improve our speaking skills. It is also a fun place as we can play games such as chess and poker. Also, we can play the dolls and custume in the English Corner and draw on some drawing books. I always go to English Corner with my classmates when we are free since it is really a good place.
