NEW YORK, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Oxford University Press, the world's largest university press, is extending its language teaching solutions through a partnership with Eleutian Technology.  Oxford University Press and Eleutian today announced the release of TeachCast™ with Oxford, a jointly developed, innovative online English language teaching service that opens up the opportunity for students around the world to learn English.

TeachCast™ with Oxford combines Eleutian's market-leading curriculum delivery system with Oxford's proven learning content. The TeachCast system uses Eleutian's team of highly qualified, US-certified teachers to deliver daily English language lessons via video-conference to students around the world. The materials for each lesson are taken from two of Oxford's most successful courses: language lessons for children will use Let's Go, while adult students learn business English skills with Business Venture.

Peter Marshall, Managing Director of the English Language Teaching Division of Oxford University Press said, "The TeachCast system is an innovative solution that makes English language teaching more accessible to children and adults. Over 24 million people have learned English with our Let's Go and Business Venture courses and, by partnering with Eleutian, we will extend our reach even further. It is an exciting new development and Oxford is delighted to be working with Eleutian."

"Eleutian is excited to be able to offer two of Oxford's best-known language courses to students around the world via our TeachCast platform," said Kent Holiday, CEO of Eleutian, "Oxford's language teaching products are highly respected throughout the entire education community and there is a significant demand globally for Oxford materials. TeachCast will allow us to deliver these courses, taught live by Eleutian teachers, to students on a daily basis." 

Oxford and Eleutian are initially focusing on Asia, the Middle East and South America but will offer TeachCast® with Oxford to their existing channels throughout the world.
