The most popular weekly publication in China isn't produced in Beijing or Shanghai, but in Taiyuan, the capital of Shanxi, a province better known for coal mining than literary endeavor.

Nevertheless, with a circulation of 16 million, English Weekly is shaping the English skills of Chinese students like no other book or newspaper - its editions aimed at senior high school students garner more than 8 million readers a week, accounting for one-third of all children in China's senior high schools.
