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 and books.

The English Corner, or ‘Eng Con’ as it is called by students, is normally 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 students from Forms One to Five.

The English Corner has been successful in helping create an English-rich environment at the school. In past years, we focused more on lending out items like music CDs, books and DVDs, with students borrowing more than 8,000 items per year. However, are now focusing more on things like games and activities. Some new additional services are:

  • A widescreen TV
  • A Nintendo Switch
  • A Kindle borrowing service (coming in 2021)
  • A much wider selection of games (we now have over seventy games; you can see the full list here: English Corner Games)
  • A snack service that is held once a week (students are given a ‘loyalty card’ and are given a chop if they participate in specified activities—e.g., watch a TV program, play a strategy game, play a language game. If they get four cops in a row, they can get a free drink and snacks).

We have a wide range of resources—movies, music CDs and books—to encourage students to broaden their horizons and develop interests in other cultures.

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.
