In 2021, I will be able to continue supporting advanced/gifted students and teachers of selective schools (with both standardised international and national/regional advanced exams and contests). I will also try to give more support for my previous publications (Cornucopia, Cambridge English Toolkit) and resume my book revision projects; new materials are underway, too. By “support” I mean we still focus on developing language awareness and proficiency at C1–C2 levels, nurturing language talents, and as ever, not on cramming for those tests and exams. I hope you can see that I have never meant to dismiss all those exams and contests or any learning opportunities; we will simply try to make the most of those resources.
For anyone who has been burning the midnight oil for the upcoming national language competitions, please keep in mind that success in these contests (and even in standardised international exams), is not necessarily a reflection of language talent, potential, or even fluency, but more a case of language exposure and practice. To pass those exams, or achieve maximum scores, or win gold medals, you clearly need to satisfy the requirements. But that, I believe, is not the ultimate goal of an English language major, nor is it the ultimate goal of language education, especially gifted education on language arts. No matter what you gain from those challenges, you all deserve your own rewards on your very own language journey, be they knowledge, enjoyment, scholarships, or medals.

Please note that I am no longer involved in local advanced exams and may not be able to update or revise all of the papers. Since 2018, my focus has shifted toward developing language awareness and proficiency for advanced learners and teachers of selective schools.
