The Center for Language Education offers the “Chinese Language Buddy Program (CLBP)”, which aims to promote a conducive and diverse language learning environment, and encourages the confident and frequent use of Putonghua or Cantonese among students of HKUST. Through joining various fun online group gatherings organized by your “Buddy” (a student leader fluent in Putonghua/Cantonese) throughout the term, you can make friends from different places, know more about diverse cultures, practice speaking in relaxing environments, and boost your confidence in speaking Putonghua/Cantonese.
