China Daily 21st Century signs knowledge partnership agreement with TESOL International Association

Christopher Powers, executive director of TESOL International Association, and Zhang Haigang, vice general manager of China Daily 21st Century English Education Media, signed an agreement forming a knowledge partnership between the two organizations.

21st Century English Education Media, a subsidiary of China Daily and a leading ELT organization and publisher of English language learning and teaching resources in China, is excited to announce that it has signed a knowledge partnership agreement with TESOL International Association, a world leader in advancing expertise in English language teaching and learning.

The agreement, signed on 22 July in Changzhou, Jiangsu province, strengthens the mission and growth of both organizations. China Daily 21st Century and TESOL have agreed to collaborate on a number of new initiatives, including a three-day TESOL professional learning event in China in 2018. Additionally, the organizations will collaborate on teacher workshops and other regional and national English language teaching events throughout China.

As part of the agreement, China Daily 21st Century will help identify 2,000 new global members from across China, granting valuable access to TESOL's professional development resources and international networks. In addition, both organizations have agreed to explore other areas of English language teaching and learning.

Zeng Qingkai, editor-in-chief and general manager of China Daily 21st Century English Education Media, said that this strategic partnership has profound significance for both organizations. "With the aid of international authoritative and professional ELT resources, 21st Century English Education Media is determined to spare no effort to promote English language teaching in China and to provide more resources and opportunities for Chinese teachers of English," he added.

"TESOL and China Daily 21st Century English Education Media share similar interests in advancing English language teaching in China," said Christopher Powers, Executive Director of TESOL. "We look forward to a very productive and wide-ranging relationship with China Daily 21st Century for the years to come."
