Abstract

Nowadays, studying abroad has been a prevailing choice of Chinese students, and English study is regarded as essential by those who are going overseas. Hence there are many Epenglish training institutions established in China, such as New Oriental, New Channel, and Global IELTS, and they are keeping growing. However, these institutions only concentrate on teaching students in a traditional manner, which is face-to-face courses, yet neglecting other auxiliary teaching methods, especially online training services. Having recognized this potential market, Du Changxu, a PhD of Tsinghua University, set up LangLib together with his partners in 2009.
