ABSTRACT
The concept of subject-specific-glossary-assisted model is derived from existing 'vocabulary-based' learning methodologies such as that which is implemented in the Virtual Language Centre (VLC) website at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, which is an integration of vocabulary, lexicon, concordancing and multimedia to provide a comprehensive range of resources in support of the learner. This paper reports on an on-going project on the development of online resources with special reference to the development of an online bilingual glossary designed for Chinese students taking English medium courses for their degree. It is hoped that the integration of subject study with online specialist glossary reported in this paper may shed light on how online resources could be utilized to facilitate the learners of other languages taking degree level courses in English.
