China has expanded its role from a mere consumer market for English language education to an innovator and influencer on the global stage in the field, according to experts and educators from around the world at the 2019 Global English Education China Assembly, in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.

"English language teaching has been rolled out in such a large country where so many people are trying to learn the language. This is not commonly seen elsewhere," said president-elect of TESOL International Association Deborah J. Short on Thursday.

One of the main achievements spawned from the massive volume of learning is the invention and introduction of technologies that allow both independent learning and situations where people can learn online or face-to-face with teachers, said Short, who has also worked as a language teacher and trainer.
