This project, completed for the Language Centre of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, aims to improve the English language courses for first-year students. By interviewing teachers, surveying current students, and conducting focus groups with previous students, we have collected three separate opinions on the current students' English language needs and the ability of the course materials to meet them. We recommended changes, based on our evaluation of these opinions, which should improve the first-year English courses.
