HARBIN, China, July 21 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- China Education Alliance, Inc. (NYSE Amex: CEU) announced today that a co-operative agreement was officially signed with the Foreign Language College of Peking University to jointly collaborate on the research and development, promotion and running of a "Practical Oral English Training Project." Under this agreement, both parties will participate in recruiting qualified teachers to teach English at classes held at Peking University. The classes will last one year, and student admissions across the country are scheduled to begin in September 2009.

Peking University is one of the most prestigious and well-known universities in the People's Republic of China. It boasts first-class quality education and is well-reputed among students all over the country. Its Foreign Language College is one of the earliest and most famous colleges in English education in China. The "Practical Oral English Training Project" will utilize English teachers from North America and will provide original English materials and an English-only environment to ensure students' mastery of the English language within one year. The course will satisfy students' needs for exposure to an overseas education and an international business environment.

In the People's Republic of China, it is a common occurrence for people who have studied English for many years to still be unable to carry a simple conversation in English, thus coining the term "Muted English." The main reasons for this are the lack of native English-speaking teachers, original English materials and an English-only environment.

Since the embarking in the field of teaching foreign languages, China Education Alliance, as a leading provider of educational resources, has insisted on practical English education by hiring North American teachers, using original English materials, providing an English-only teaching environment and setting "practicalness" as its goal. Besides having English as the sole language in classes, students are encouraged to use English at all times. Through constant communication and forming thought processes in English, students are able to achieve equal fluency in both English and Chinese in a short period of time. That is the uniqueness of the Company's approach in teaching a foreign language.

"The co-operation with the Foreign Language College of Peking University will strengthen our Company's influence in English education in the People's Republic of China and will promote our Company's brand name," said Mr. Xiqun Yu, Chief Executive Officer of China Education. "This collaboration supports our goal of providing high-quality, practical English education in the People's Republic of China."
