South San Francisco, CA, August 25, 2004 — GlobalEnglish Corporation, the leading online English learning and support service for business communication, is participating in the American Chamber of Commerce’s Human Resources Conference August 25 to 27 at the Sheraton Suzhou Hotel and Towers in Shanghai, China. GlobalEnglish is a platinum sponsor for this year’s sold-out conference, whose theme is “Back to Basics—Talent Attraction, Motivation, and Retention.” More than 150 HR professionals will attend the event, which will present a comprehensive look at the issues of managing Chinese workforce talent in the growing and increasingly global Chinese economy.

“China is expanding rapidly, and the need for Chinese employees to speak English with colleagues, managers, customers, and partners is increasing dramatically,” said Ron Hoge, President and CEO of GlobalEnglish. “GlobalEnglish has helped dozens of companies improve business communication in their Chinese operations. Because employees at these companies have improved their English skills, the organizations are now better positioned to capitalize on the growth opportunities in China.”

GlobalEnglish has become a leading choice for global employers in China who need a flexible and cost-effective service to address their Business English skills gap. GlobalEnglish customers in China have been able to track the progress of their employees’ English skills and measure their productivity gains through improved business communication on the job.
