We are pleased to announce that there will be a 4-lesson course on
"Learning English through the Bible" on 27 Nov 2010, 4 Dec 2010, 11 Dec
2010 and 18 Dec 2010 in Hong Kong. Details are as follows:

Instructor: Jenny Wong (Assistant Professor, Beijing Normal
University-Hong Kong Baptist University, United International College)
Fanny Cheung (Advisory Teacher, Education Bureau, HK Government)

Course description:
Do you know that a lot of modern day expressions come from the Bible?
The Bible is a source of inspiration for writers like Shakespeare, and a
major source of English idioms. If you “go the extra mile to help your
friend, “eat, drink and be merry” during happy hours, you are quoting from
the Bible.

In this course, you will be able to appreciate the beauty of the English
Bible by learning its idiomatic expressions, rhetorical devices and
influence in the Western world. Towards the end of the course, you will
learn how to apply such knowledge in conducting English classes or
interest groups with biblical references in schools, churches or family
settings.

Target audience: Christians, particularly those interested in teaching
Bible courses

Date: 27 Nov 2010, 4 Dec 2010, 11 Dec 2010 and 18 Dec 2010 (Sat)

Time: 10am - 12pm
Fee: HK$500 (an additional $100 administrative fee will be levied if
enrolled after 20 Nov 2010)
