Dr Holly Chung is a Senior Lecturer at the Department of English, the Hang Seng University of Hong Kong. As the HSUHK’s Teaching Excellence awardee (2014/15 and 2017/18), and also one of the top ten teachers nominated by students with good online teaching practices (2019/20). As the organiser of TEDxHSUHK and the initiator of HSUHK Toastmasters Club, Dr Chung is dedicated to fostering innovative pedagogy to meet the ever-changing on-site and online needs of students in the education of English language.

Committed to the study of English, she majored in English and Translation in her undergraduate study and then sociolinguistics in her postgraduate journey. Her passion for this language has further grown to its teaching as a second language, leading to her pursuit of a postgraduate diploma of Education with the concentration in English-language.

Dr Chung has nearly 15 years of experience as an English-language teacher. She is also engaged in reference book writing in areas like creative writing and collocation. Committed to promoting English-language to all walks of life, she is also the host of an English-language educational programme broadcast in a local TV channel.
