The University of Macau (UM) Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) organises a training course on English Upgrade for a total of 24 students from Faculty of English Language and Culture of Guangdong University of Foreign Studies during Jan 2nd to 6th.

The five-day training course was rich and compact. In addition to the class, UM English debate team were also invited to communicate with the students, sharing the rules of the English debate competition and something fun in the past competition. Then both parties had a debate friendly match. In the part of off-campus visits, students visited Activities Centre of “Bairro do Hipodromo” under Macao Education and Youth Development Bureau. The trainees visited the latest facilities of the center after the optimization project was completed in 2021. Afterwards, the students also went to Macao Science Center to watch 3D dome program of the planetarium and a number of themed exhibitions. We got positive feedback from the students.
