活動現場,胡敏教授作為雅思30周年見證代表,他說:“我跟雅思的淵源,應該可以追溯到1999年,正好是20年以前。當時我到倫敦英國文化委員會,拜訪肖恩·海德先生,當時雅思還在拼命的奪取更大的市場份額,樹立自己的業內地位,而托福是一個帝國。當時我對肖恩·海德先生說了這么一番話,IELTS shall one day arise and shine in the kingdom of English language testing.一晃二十年過去了,這二十年我們看到了雅思的快速發展,雅思考試人數的急劇增長,我們共同見證了過去雅思考試的30年輝煌。我從倫敦回來以后,就開始了我的人生中最重要的旅程——雅思之旅。當時我確實認為,雅思考試是全The world's first個用international這個詞的,具有國際范,具有全球視野,服務全世界。第二個,當時我總結了雅思考試它有四個方面的作用,The first個,雅思它是一個A passport to immigration,移民的通行證。第二個是,A new way to study abroad,留學的新途徑,A golden key to a future career, 職場的金鑰匙。A new place for English learning, 英語學習的大課堂?!?/p>

的確,從最初的預言到今天的雅思大發展,“胡敏”與“雅思”有著千絲萬縷的關系。


2000年,胡敏教授在國內成功主持、自主開發出了第1代培訓教材,填補了當時國內雅思培訓領域的空白。


2007年,新航道推出“胡敏雅思第5代”系列教材,被高等院校國際學院和許多知名培訓機構奉為經典。胡敏教授攜“雅思夢之隊”在全國高校進行了數百場雅思巡回演講,反響強烈,胡敏教授因此被主流媒體譽為“中國雅思之父”。


2009年,在雅思考試20年頒獎典禮上,英國文化協會授予胡敏教授全球“雅思考試20年20人”杰出貢獻獎。


2019年的今天,在雅思30年慶典之際,胡敏教授作為雅思30年見證代表……

所謂無巧不成書,雅思考試的30年,也正是新航道的15周年,2004年胡敏教授帶領“雅思夢之隊”開始創建新航道。在海淀區知春路的一個兩室一廳的一個公寓里面,不足180平米的一個房間里面,開始創業。那么這么多年過去了,如今新航道在全球46個城市,擁有學校,在墨爾本擁有分校;每年培訓學生逾10萬人次。在此次2019年頒獎典禮上,新航道憑借超強實力及對雅思的突出貢獻蟬聯雅思考試官方“集團貢獻獎”,新航道下屬8所分校分別榮獲“白金級合作伙伴(6所獲獎白金級機構中,新航道獨攬3個)、金級合作伙伴“獎項!


在致辭中胡敏教授說到:三十年彈指一揮間已經過去了,30而立,倍道而進?,F在是一個A new era of globalization,全球化的時代,擁抱的是那些能夠參與到全球競爭與合作能力的人才,國際精英人才。胡老師想借這個機會,跟大家簡單的分享一點,我對現在的這個領域的看法。我認為,中國的英語教育,包括培訓,有一點類似于金字塔,塔基在哪里?塔基是test-oriented language learning應試教育。中間的這個層次,是英語能力的教育培訓the acquisition of four basic language skills of listening , speaking, reading and writing,這是第二層次。但是這個塔尖,the top of the pyramid is global competence塔尖是全球勝任力。全球勝任力意味著什么?它有四個維度,The first個維度是指的the capacity to analyze local, global and intercultural issues,第二個維度是the capacity to understand and appreciate perspectives and world views of others,第三個維度是the ability to engage in open, appropriate and effective interactions across cultures,最后一個維度是the capacity to take action for collective well-being and sustainable growth。這四個維度里面,都包含了其中的一條主線,就是整個英語的溝通能力。


30年,眾多中國學子通過雅思考試進入名校、走向世界,雅思考試確實獲得越來越多的教育機構、中等教育機構、企事業單位、國內的國外的普遍的認可。而從2004年到2018年,在新航道的14年進程中,作為培訓機構,新航道成功地幫助了數十萬人,實現了他們的名校的夢想。進如牛津、劍橋這一些著名的學府。新航道只是許許多多在中國成功的“雅思故事”之一,未來新航道將繼續一如既往與雅思官方一起見證更多中國學生國際化之路!


附:胡敏教授2019雅思合作伙伴頒獎典禮演講全文:


Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen:


Good evening!


Let me begin by congratulating all the awarded IELTS partners this evening! I wish all of you even greater success! Thanks for the delicious meal and the performances were wonderful indeed!


It is my great honor to be invited to give a speech at 2019 IELTS Overseas Education Collaboration Forum to witness its glorious past 30 years.


My first encounter with IELTS goes back to 1999, that is exactly 20 years ago. I visited Mr. Sean Hyde of the British Council in London. At that time, TOFEL was considered as the empire of English language testing; IELTS, however, was still trying hard to fight for its foothold. I offered Mr. Hyde my word of hope, saying that IELTS shall one day arise and shine in the kingdom of English language testing. In my view IELTS could become a passport to immigration; a new way to study abroad; a golden key to a future career and a new place for English learning.


With that vision in mind we parted our ways. I returned to China to embark on my new journey of IELTS for Chinese learners and testees of English. The past 20 years have seen burgeoning growth in IELTS in terms of book publishing, training schools and academic events and study overseas.


Here I would like to share with you the IELTS story of my company, the New Channel International Education Group Limited ( New Channel). In 2004 New Channel was founded. It now has 46 schools, more than 300 learning centers around the globe. IELTS book publishing has been a booming business sector of my company. Major British publishers like Macmillan, Cambridge University Press as well as Harper Collins are collaborators of New Channel. In fact, in collaboration with Harper Collins, one of the largest English language education publishers in the world, we jointly published 7Th Generation of IELTS textbooks.


China IELTS Festival is an annual IELTS academic event launched by New Channel. Up to now, it has been continuing for 12 years. Above a million learners benefited from nearly a thousand events held in more than 40 cities and over 100 universities.


During the 14 years from 2004 to 2018, New Channel had exerted every effort to help hundreds of thousands of learners realize their dream to enter prestigious universities like Cambridge and Oxford and become the Chinese youth with global competence. They contribute to the community of shared future for mankind like the shining stars on the world stage.


New Channel's success is just one of many true IELTS stories in China and around the globe. Today IELTS scores are accepted by the higher education institutions in many parts of the world. As a matter of fact, the IELTS test has become the most popular test in the whole world.


All these truly remarkable achievements made by IELTS only prove what I predicted about it 20 years ago has become a reality!


It goes without saying that those past glories of IELTS shall always remain fresh! However, one cannot dwell upon it, for we are now in a new era of globalization. The world demands skillful and multifaceted talent of great minds. It resembles a pyramid of three different levels. The bottom level concerns the test-oriented language learning; the middle level involves the acquisition of four basic language skills of   listening , speaking, reading and writing, and the top of the pyramid is global competence.


The global competence includes the following four dimensions. The first dimension is the capacity to examine local, global and intercultural issues; the second dimension is the capacity to understand and appreciate different perspectives and world views; the third is the ability to engage in open, appropriate and effective interactions across cultures, and the fourth is the ability to take action for collective well-being and sustainable development.


It is clear that the IELTS test itself cannot get you to the top of the pyramid, but the reliable and valid assessment it provides surely smooths the way to it.


Look ahead, IELTS holds a promising future. We shall continue to collaborate with the British Council Testing Services so as to create more opportunities to help learners to become globally competent English language communicators.


I wish the International English Language Testing System another 30 glorious years! I wish everyone here a very happy and prosperous new year!


Thank you!
