Firstly, congratulations to New Channel on its 10th anniversary. Congratulations to Mr. Hu Min and to the fantastic team that he has assembled.
The last ten years, since 2004, we see the continuous growth in the demand for English, English for study abroad, English for work, and English for all kinds of cultural exchange.
But another substantial change is taking place, I think English itself is no longer really viewed as a second language.
It is viewed, all around the world and here in China, as the essential skill for work in any context. It doesn’t matter whether you are abroad or in China.
In the last ten years, New Channel has grown to become a major English training provider in China.
New Channel has done this because they take very modern approaches to English and to English teaching.
Once again, I congratulate them on their success.
Assure that, well, it is New Channel’s 10th Birthday. 2014 is also the birthday of IELTS. It is in fact IELTS 25th anniversary in China.
Over this time, IELTS has become the leading English language test in China and it is recognized worldwide by over 9000 organizations.
We are proud to include New Channel as one of our major partners.
And we look forward to continuing to work together in the future to help Chinese learners achieve their dreams.
So, New Channel, 10年，正青春。Also，IELTS, 25年，一样，正青春。
