About us

Founded in 1979 by the Beijing Foreign Studies University, the Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press (FLTRP) has since grown into the largest foreign languages publisher and university press in China, ranking 3rd in sales turnover among all the publishing houses in China. 

FLTRP started as a language education publisher and has expanded into more subjects and more areas. The formats of our products have extended from print to digital and mobile. Our publications range from academic and educational works, to humanities and social sciences, natural sciences, and to the mass reading and children’s books. Besides traditional publications, we provide online services, performances and competitions related to learning and reading.

Now we strive to provide all-round educational solutions for individual readers. To make this transition from a publisher to an educational service provider, FLTRP keeps in pace with the development of education. We also keep in mind the needs of frontline customers, both institutional and individual, and do our best to provide the right products and services for them.

With a special strength in languages and deep understanding of Chinese and other cultures, FLTRP is well positioned to tell China stories to the world. We actively engage in the promotion of cultural understanding between China and other parts of the world. FLTRP regularly licenses fine works from overseas, and actively cooperates with international partners in developing new products for the global market.
