About the Programme

"Gen-Z Communication Studio" is a programme which aims to empower young people through developing their competencies at communicating in English. Supported by the Standing Committee on Language Education and Research (SCOLAR) and funded by the Language Fund, the programme strives to strengthen participants' effective communication, logical reasoning, and empathetic leadership. Through a series of interactive and creative workshops and training sessions, it sparks students' interest in English while improving their abilities to communicate confidently.
