我很慶幸自己是嶺南持續進修學院的一份子!在過去一年,每天上課我都很開心,因為課上同學相處融洽,而且學院老師總是悉心教導,以不同教學方式配合我們的需要。在剛剛入學的時候,我還擔心日後自己會否跟不上學科的難度與進度,後來發現老師們都很樂意解答同學的問題,即使下課後他們都願意幫助我。同學們更會在考試前相約一同溫習,互相提出自己不明白的內容,並彼此提醒考核重點。另外,學院的資源非常充足,有許多空間讓我們溫習和討論功課,做報告時亦可以找到很多參考資料。這一年來,我為下年度的學習已打好基礎,我會繼續努力學習,向著夢想前進!

​文憑試後,我選讀了學院的文憑課程。文憑課程跟中學課程很不同,每周上課時間較短,但課程進度緊密,內容也很充實。學院的老師都願意騰出寶貴的時間幫助同學,除了上課,他們還會透過電郵或電話解答我們的問題,又會與我們談天,了解我們學習上的需要,引導我們適應並投入大專生活。
