【蘋果日報】為甚麼香港只有一個David Tang





其實IGCSE兼修Eng Lit,不論你將來讀大學選醫科還是電子工程,只有好處,沒有壞處。








這樣的殊榮,又豈是只Phy、Chem、Bio、Maths全部A Star讀醫科而end up一生在醫院為貧窮市民睇急症而可以享受得到?


即使將來要與這一科告別,讀英國文學會令一個高中學生適應環境,融入寄宿學校的生活。讀了這一科,品味英詩和小說的音韻和情節,你會明白為甚麼英國人看見你宿舍房間堆滿半牆壁的台灣和日本杯麵,只是略一揚眉說:What a Spectacular Chinese Kitchen,而只有你一個人聽出這句話並非恭維,也不是對中國飲食文化的讚歎。


在英國與有教育的英國人說英語,彼此初見交談,就像兩名俠客,陌路相逢,彼此在語言中佈陣。對不同的階級說不同程度的英文,用不同質素的詞彙。學成之後,如果要你形容一個盲目追求GDP的國家毫無底線的貪婪,你就懂得引用小說家D.H. Lawrence:


And as the marrow is eaten out of a man's bones and the soul out of his belly, contending with the strange rapacity of savage life, the lower stage of creation, he cannot make the effort any more.


這句話有一個英文生字,叫做Rapacity,意思是「貪婪」,但Rapacity又不完全等同Greed。兩者之間有何分別?在甚麼場合你手捧一杯紅酒,著一件西裝,在打煲呔的時候,宴會室裡的牆壁掛著幾幅Turner的原版油畫,你對劍橋畢業的那位太古CEO講述來遠東做生意的經驗。拋出這句D.H. Lawrence,然後字正腔圓地說出這個Rapacity,我認為他會留給你電郵,兩個月後與你聯絡,問你有沒有興趣轉工。


這就是英國文學帶來的利潤和花紅,只是一切不會賬面上,而是在課堂和畢業證書之外。否則,香港為甚麼有千百個寫英文Memo文法正確,自稱去過牛津受訓(記住,只是Training course) 的政務官,而David Tang,卻只有一名?

#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.
