17/6/2019 - 尊敬的老师、家长、考生及所有ABRSM考级的相关同仁
Dear teachers, parents, pupils and all those involved with ABRSM exams,感谢您对ABRSM音乐考级的信任。您或许已经听闻，为遵守当地政府部门的执法要求，中国部分地区的ABRSM考级将由此暂停。我们一直在努力与中央和地方的政府部门就适用的监管要求和针对该等情况所应采取的措施进行沟通。We would like to address our gratitude to you for your trust over ABRSM music examinations. As you probably have known, the ABRSM examinations had to be suspended in some areas in China to accommodate the law enforcement efforts by the local government authorities in China. We have been making endeavours to communicate with the central and local government authorities regarding the applicable regulatory requirements and actions to be taken to address this situation.在过去几年间，我们一直在为ABRSM如何以符合中国法律的方式开展音乐考级并向音乐教师和考生提供支持寻求相关政府部门的指导。对于因地方政府部门采取的先发措施可能对努力准备考试的各位考生造成的影响，我们感到十分抱歉。Over the last few years we have been seeking guidance from the competent government authorities on how to continue to provide music exams, and support for music teachers and pupils, in accordance with Chinese laws. We regret the pre-emptive actions being taken at a local level that will impact students who have worked so hard to prepare for their exams.我们坚信帮助相关考生在音乐学习上取得进步是我们的首要任务，我们希望各位考生对此能够予以理解并保持耐心。我们正在就国际考级机构在中国开展活动的具体要求与相关政府部门进行积极沟通；我们亦在紧急为受影响地区所面临的困难寻求解决途径。We ask for your support and patience, as we believe that helping students make progress in their musical studies is of the highest possible importance. We are seeking to communicate with the competent authorities for its requirements on international exam providers for continuing examination activities in China, and are seeking to resolve any difficulties in specific affected areas as a matter of urgency.ABRSM衷心希望能够继续在中国与各音乐人、音乐教育者及音乐考生们合作，一同追求艺术的卓越与进步！ABRSM sincerely hopes to be able to continue to work with musicians, educators and children in China in the pursuit of artistic excellence and progress.感谢各位的支持和理解。Thank you for your support and understanding.英国皇家音乐学院联合委员会The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music2019年6月17日17 June 2019
