We are delighted to partner with 51Talk to integrate our digital reading platform, Highlights Library, and offer our content to students in China. As one of the largest online English education companies in China, 51Talk brings together students and teachers for live, online English lessons while providing students across China access to quality education.
With over 2,600 quality authentic English stories, Highlights Library helps children grow a love of reading and explore new topics. Many Highlights Library stories focus on social-emotional learning (SEL) themes that help provide a positive foundation for children. SEL is an educational focus that helps children acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills required to:
- understand and manage emotions
- set and achieve positive goals
- feel and show empathy for others
- establish and maintain positive relationships
- make responsible decisions.
These stories help children understand that they are important to future successes and create lifelong learners who contribute to society. 51Talk will integrate Highlights stories within their Classic English Junior courses to deep learning on a variety of topics and levels. Highlights Library content integration within 51Talk’s platform will create a powerful experience for English language learners. We look forward to seeing children in China discover their love of reading with the same stories that have helped many children worldwide do the same.
