Recently there has been much discussion on the status of English in Hong Kong. Traditionally, English has been viewed as a second language but there are those who consider it to be a foreign language. However, the evidence fro such a view appears not to be available. This paper describes a survey carried out with students in a Band 1 school. The survey was designed to produce data to indicate whether English functions as a second of foreign language. The pedagogical implications are also discussed.
