Abstract: Abstract Through the use of language arts materials and activities, learners' language learning experience can be expanded and their motivation of learning will be enhanced, which will bring a development in students' language abilities. With the introduction of language arts modules in the New Senior Secondary (NSS) English Language Curriculum in 2009, the role of language arts in the education system in Hong Kong will become more important. In order to establish a stronger interface between the junior and senior secondary curricula so that students can be better prepared for the changes in senior forms, many schools are preparing to incorporate language arts into the junior secondary English curriculum. As a pilot study, this research served to provide more information and insights for the future language arts programmes in the school where this study was conducted. This study tried to explore the learning experience of a class of Form Two students in a Chinese-as-the-medium-of-instruction (CMI) co-educational secondary school in Hong Kong. By conducting the Language Arts Modules comprising three different text-based language arts genres (short stories, plays and poems) on the basis of the same theme, both quantitative and qualitative data were collected through students' learning journals, questionnaires, individual interviews and the evaluation of students' work. Results showed that the students generally enjoyed learning English through language arts. The students' responses also showed that the language arts lessons were conducive to helping the students in language enrichment, the development of creativity and imagination, and affective learning. However, the students responded quite differently towards the three language arts genres in terms of enjoyment, language enrichment, the development of creativity and imagination, and affective learning. Comparisons were made and further analysis was employed. Hence, this study also served as an action research for the researcher to reflect on her teaching. Finally, it is hoped that this study can give some enlightenment to the teaching of English through language arts in the new era in Hong Kong. ii DOI: 10.5353/th_b3874151 Subjects: Language arts - China - Hong KongEnglish language - Study and teaching (Secondary) - China - Hong KongJunior high school students - China - Hong Kong - Attitudes
