Abstract: This paper analyzes earnings returns to English skill and Mandarin skill in Hong Kong. Combining two datasets from Hong Kong and using OLS method, I find that controlling other factors, people who can speak English enjoy 12.1 percent higher monthly income than those who cannot. Comparatively, Mandarin skill dose not bring high earnings returns, only 1.6 percent. Then I concentrate on English skill and find the heterogeneity of premium for English skill in gender, education, occupation and cohort. Results from Brown et al decomposition reveal that between-occupation differentials are dominant in total differentials of monthly income between people with English skill and people without English skill, indicating the language exclusion based on English. Furthermore, family background has a significant effect on individuals’ English proficiency, the mechanism of which is through personal educational attainment. These findings shed light on the role of language skills in income inequality and social reproduction.

Abstract: Developing skill so that students can participate in various activities is an important part of physical education class. Skill equity, having the ability to participate and succeed in a physical activity, is important for low skill students to achieve, because they are then offered the same opportunities as high skill students. Equity in a broader sense can be the physical activities that students successfully pursue throughout their lives. In seeking skill equity students and teachers must be motivated to achieve their respective goals of effectiveness of instructing and learning motor skills. Physical education teachers’ objective is to both level the skill playing field and heighten the achievement and expectations of physical participation. Class structure should include appropriate practice to increase skill level for high and low skill students. In that type of setting, the goal is to transfer their growing motor skill ability to future physical endeavors.
