The Wonder of English Language

Throughout the course of my teaching career, I have found the study of English language to be the most rewarding discipline as well as being those about which I am most passionate. Having taught the language for over ten years in Hong Kong, I conclude that the study of English at an advanced level will deepen my conceptual grasp of the language, strengthen my contextual engagement with works across the centuries, and train me further in analytical methodology. Consequently, I would very much like to further my study in this very subject and develop my knowledge of the origin of English, linguistics as well as literature, particularly relating to language teaching. Besides, I have always enjoyed the intellectual stimulation provided by grammatical concepts throughout my experiences with English language, and tasting the study of literature, and challenging myself further in terms of the varieties of English.

The Elements of Style, a book that I have kept reviewing, has given me a fresh perspective on the art of writing. It is a book that pinpoints the importance of cleanliness, accuracy, and brevity in the use of English. As one of the authors, William Strunk, points out, ‘Vigourous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences’ and ‘that every word tells’, I treasure his notion for its sharp advice, but even more for his self-confidence.

The diversity of my studies in my undergraduate work has provided me with a holistic view of the methods of knowledge inquiry and acquisition. I believe English language, as a unique art form - in contrast to the rationality of Economics (my undergraduate major) offers more than a scientific veneer to the human concerns it shares with language. Through practising criticism of theories and honing of the skills of analysis, I believe I can transfer to and apply those skills in language study effectively.
