On October 3, 10 and 24, a total of 60 groups of S5-6 students joined the lunchtime DSE group discussion practice in the School Hall. The activity aimed at improving students’ communication skills so as to better prepare them for English Paper 4 in the HKDSE. In groups of 4, students practised the 8-minute group discussion, followed by the 1-minute individual response. After listening to the teacher’s advice on how to give appropriate and natural responses, most participants performed satisfactorily in the discussion.
