As part of the Workplace English Campaign, a television programme "One Minute's English" is being produced by Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) and will be broadcast from next Monday (24 January).

With an emphasis on the use of English in the workplace, the TV programme will adopt a lively, new format to introduce common and practical English phrases for everyday use in various places of work.  Celebrities will also be invited to take part in the programme.

The programme will run on two of the major terrestrial TV stations for six months.  The broadcasting schedule is as follows:

Channel Schedule
TVB Jade 9:00 a.m., Monday to Friday
ATV Home 5:55 p.m. and 2:30 a.m., Monday to Friday

The programme will also be adapted for radio broadcast concurrently on the following radio channels:

RTHK Radio 2 8:30 p.m.
RTHK Radio 5 9:30 p.m.


Mr Michael Tien, Chairman of the Steering Committee on the Workplace English Campaign, said that the "One Minute's English" programme would help raise public interest in the learning of workplace English.

"Leaning workplace English could be quick and easy.  I hope this programme would help people acquire a useful grasp of English conversation skill for their everyday use," he said.
