In order to create a happy English learning environment for students at MLC, the college initiated a weekly English Salon. Students gather together to discuss on a given topic in English on every Wednesday night. The first English salon was successfully held on November 9, 2016, shortly after the release of results of the 2016 USA presidential election. The students first played some icebreaking games and then formed a group to discuss some interesting topics about the election. The last section was one-on-one discussion on ‘how would the results of the election affect our daily life in Macau and Mainland China’. Due to the fierce discussion, the event was over-ran for 1 hour. The participants enjoyed a lot and expressed their willingness to come again next week.
