Present Exec

Lydia Ip

    I am very lucky to have the opportunity to be the education officer of Cansoc this year. Through organising regular Cantonese classes to both English and Mandarin speakers, I have made friends with many lovely people. One of the best things about my role is that I get to meet with these amazing people almost every week, which allows me to develop a close relationship with them, which is a benefit that one-off activities don't have.

    Moreover, I have enjoyed a very fulfilling teaching experience. Although the tutors do most of the talking in the classroom, my role as the officer is to facilitate all the necessary conditions for making this happen. This means that not only do I indirectly teach Cantonese to students through designing the course and preparing the teaching materials, I also provide an environment for the tutors to develop personally. I can see that they have got greater confidence, most evidently in public speaking. As for myself, I have developed better interpersonal skills through collaborating with different members within Cansoc and from other departments and societies. In trying to keep up with the class schedule, I have also learnt how to better manage my time. This has been a great learning experience, and I can't be more thankful for the opportunity!
