Abstract

Since the handover of Hong Kong in 1997, communication between Hong Kong and mainland China become more frequent in a wide range of coverage. According to the trend of recent communication and collaboration, it can be noticed that the focus of the development framework of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area has been advocated for promoting regional cooperation for fostering competitiveness in all fields. This thesis is an intra-cultural and inter-regional comparative study of the English Language curricula in Hong Kong and Guangzhou. Apart from identifying the similarities and differences, convergences and divergences in the Junior Secondary school level, the social values of the curricula and implication in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area are also discussed for enlightening future curriculum development in both cities.
