3. enhance students’ motivation to learn, reflect and build up knowledge;
4. enhance students’ exposure to English and its use in school;
5. facilitate the use of languages in a variety of meaningful contexts;
6. match the NSS curriculum design;
7. observe the uniqueness of different subject natures.
