I chose the programme ‘English Studies for the Professions’ at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University because language itself to me is very intriguing because without it, we can not really communicate and share our knowledge; and as it is so essential to our lives. The first time I heard about the linguistic landscape was when I started my research. Linguistic landscape refers to all signs and symbols you can see in a public area. Signs and symbols can be languages, images, logos, graphs and colours. It concerns not only linguistics but also sociology, media studies and some other fields.I believe that my knowledge of it would be useful to my future career or studies.
