【頭條日報:升學專家有話兒】地球村語言

決定了去英國留學,好多家長和同學第一件擔心的事,是同學仔英文不夠好,不足以應付日常生活及學習。見到他們憂心忡忡,我就覺得十分陰功豬:話晒香港人由幼稚園開始學英文,上到中學,大大話話都有十年八年學習英語的資歷,即使未必講到嘞嘞聲,至少出門都應不足以為慮,偏偏事實所見,好多香港學生去到英國,英語始終有段時間需要相當掙扎。

最近有教育機構發佈有關非英語為母語地區英文水平的調查報告,大家可猜得出當中哪裏英文最頂呱呱?

答案是荷蘭,其次是丹麥和瑞典人。可見論英語能力,歐洲始終遙遙領先,尤其是北歐四國:丹麥、瑞典、挪威和芬蘭,更雄據榜上二至五位,威風八面。

至於我們亞洲,可喜可賀是今年原來是首次有亞洲地區可以躋身得到非常高水平的級別,可惜得此殊榮的不是咱們香港,而是新加坡,排名第六。香港位列三十,英語水平獲中等評級,落後於馬來西亞(十二位)、菲律賓(十三位)及南韓(二十七位),與越南(三十一位)、印尼(三十二位)、台灣(三十三位)旗鼓相當,稍微比日本(三十五位)、中國(三十九位)叻叻。

不過當然,求學不是求分數,最緊要有進步。調查發現英語能力最有大躍進的地方,計有法國、卡塔爾及新加坡,而出現英文大倒退的地方則是伊拉克、日本及秘魯。

個人覺得調查結果最發人深省的發現是,原來不論是地區或個人層面,英語能力都是經濟競爭力的一大重要指標。即是話,英語水平與賺錢能力、生活質素、人際網絡直接掛鈎,英文講得好,確實在今日世界是個優勢。所以呢,留學英國未必保證你成為人上人,但只要有合理的付出,大部份同學最低限度都能在英語能力上大有進步,作為生存技能的投資,確已算有一定保障。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
