Abstract

This chapter introduces the Reading and Listening modules of LPATE training courses provided at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. The two modules are introduced together in one chapter as both Reading and Listening are assessed in an analytic manner in the LPATE. The chapter first introduces the two key aspects assessed in the LPATE Reading and Listening Tests, i.e. cognitive abilities as well as linguistic skills and knowledge. It then illustrates how the Reading and Listening modules helped participants achieve the expected language standards by giving examples of tasks used in the modules, supplemented with the course providers' interpretations.
