China Education News    

The Chinese government plans to launch a new English proficiency test in an attempt to standardise and improve how the English language is taught in the country.

The National English Testing System is currently being developed by the National Education Examinations Authority – part of China’s Ministry of Education – and parts of the test are scheduled to be rolled out in 2020.  

According to the NEEA, the NETS will unify standards, provide comprehensive testing and informative score reports as well as “satisfy people’s needs for high-quality and diverse foreign language assessment”.
