Hubei foot­ball text­book goes into South­east Asia

Changjiang Weekly - - CULTURE - By Zhou Manzhen

A text­book series, "Play­ing Foot­ball," pub­lished by Hubei Ed­u­ca­tion Press (HEP) will come out in English, Malay, and Thai, and be pro­moted in mid­dle and pri­mary schools of these South­east Asian coun­tries, ac­cord­ing to news re­leased by HEP on Au­gust 23.

"Play­ing Foot­ball," was first pub­lished in April of 2017. The series' pur­pose is foot­ball ed­u­ca­tion in mid­dle and pri­mary schools. Apart from de­tailed ex­pla­na­tions on move­ments and po­si­tion­ing, the books in­clude 3D pic­tures to demon­strate foot­ball skills. By scan­ning the QR codes in the book series with a smart phone, read­ers can watch de­mon­stra­tion videos by na­tional-level coaches.

Ac­cord­ing to Zhang Yuanyuan, di­rec­tor of the copy­right and in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion depart­ment of HEP, this in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion on copy­right dated back to HEP's visit to Kual­iti Books Sdn. Bhd in Malaysia in 2016, with the lat­ter ex­press­ing hopes to de­velop sports text­books on the ba­sis of high-qual­ity Chi­nese re­sources.

Upon the pub­li­ca­tion of "Play­ing Foot­ball" in 2017, HEP sent some sam­ple books to Kual­iti Books Sdn. Bhd, who showed great in­ter­est in them. Kual­iti Books also in­tro­duced the series to other pub­lish­ers in this re­gion. Even­tu­ally, HEP signed copy­right out­put agree­ments with its coun­ter­parts in Malaysia and Thai­land.
