TOKYO, JAPAN, June 29, 2021
EdulinX Corporation (Head Office: Nishi-Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; President: Peter A. Owans), a provider of EdTech solutions for English language learning and human resources development, has announced a commercial partnership agreement with The Wall Street Journal (WSJ), a U.S. based, business-focused, English-language international daily newspaper.
By the end of this year, EdulinX plans to launch its first English e-learning course package, which will include recent WSJ news articles and audio content covering finance, technology and other business-related topics.
Over the past twenty years, EdulinX has developed a wide range of English e-learning courses as part of its service ‘Reallyenglish’, focused on improving English speaking, writing, reading and listening skills. More than 70 per cent of its clients are corporate employees, who read the news every day to stay updated on current affairs. As companies continue to expand beyond borders and develop global markets and standards, reading in English is an essential skill for any employee.
By providing an effective way to learn a language and stay updated at the same time – the unique e-learning course developed based on the trusted content of The Wall Street Journal, EdulinX aims to continuously support its corporate and academic institution clients in providing an efficient way of learning English.
“EdulinX is proud to enter into this unique opportunity to partner with The Wall Street Journal that allows us to provide its first class content via our leading EdTech platform. With a prestigious record of 38 Pulitzer Prize awards, the WSJ is regarded as a “newspaper of record” and provides rich, thoughtful content covering finance, business, and technology, as well as current social issues that will enable our customers to expand their global business knowledge while introducing more Japanese readers to The Wall Street Journal”,
said Peter A. Owans, CEO of EdulinX Corporation.
“Edulinx has proven to be a trusted partner to Japanese businesses embracing the learning of English language. We also recognize the power of partnerships, which is why we are excited to bring WSJ’s world class finance, business and politics content to new, engaged audiences in Japan alongside Edulinx. This partnership is a natural fit and plays into our broader strategy of developing new and creative ways to deliver our content in Asia.”
