Treasure the opportunities to improve your language proficiency and keep upgrading yourself in the coming four years of college life. The SYU English Department is a paradise for pursuing peaceful learning. You will only have four years here to share your laughter and tears with your friends and schoolmates, yet self-learning is a life-long journey which requires a dogged determination and a never-ending passion for completing. Hope you will find your interests and unleash your ultimate potential in this miracle place. The world of language is so vast that you will never see an end. Life must go on. Seize the moments now to step out of your comfort zone and shine like a diamond.

H.L. Leung (Year 3 student):
Being an English department student is not only learning English but learning about the connection between the four streams and society. The four streams (Literature, Linguistics, Culture, Translation) are closely connected together, which influence me to reflect on society and history. For example, the popular drama “Pygmalion” has covered the areas of Literature, Linguistics and Culture. It shows the relationship between the uses of language and social status. Studying in the English Department, makes me have deeper ideas from the Literature and Culture view. It has influenced me to open up my mind and be creative.
