Adam Gibbins graduated from the University of Cambridge with a BA in Linguistics. His studies focused on the structure, grammar and sounds of English along with first and second language acquisition. Outside of the classroom, Adam speaks Japanese and Cantonese, and so has a good understanding of the challenges Hong Kong students face when learning English.
