Hong Kong SAR’s “Biliteracy and Trilingualism” Language-in-education Policy:
Major Challenges and Proposed Coping Strategies
Li David Chor Shing and Leung Wai Mun

Abstract
After over two decades of implementation, the ‘biliteracy and trilingualism’ language policy in Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) has encountered many diffi culties and challenges, partly due to imbalance in the development of the languages in question. After a detailed analysis of the SAR’s language situation, we put forward our vision and recommended support measures that we believe are within our reach. We hope this will deepen our understanding of where the problems lie, and that our recommendations may serve as useful reference for implementing the language policy more effectively. Our purpose is to show how, by redeploying human and other resources, the education authorities would stand a better chance of achieving the goal of fostering the biliterate and trilingual abilities of the SAR’s work force, thereby allowing Hong Kong to reach a milestone in its language policy development.
