Mr. Jack Huang said there is a strong demand for online English lessons for children in China, based on the fact that the household investment in education and English requirements for students have been on the rise. A report from Chinese Academy of Social Sciences shows that China has a large English consumer group of 300 million people. The number of online English learners has reached 19.689 million, but the demand for online foreign teachers has exceeded 500,000. 16,000 plus Filipinos are currently teaching online at 51Talk, and the demand will grow to 100,000 home-based online teachers in the Philippines in the next five years.

51Talk aims to promote the Filipino teachers in China. It also hopes to make Filipino online English teachers the new future of English language teaching (ELT). 51Talk said the Philippines ranks among the best English speaking countries in Asia. The Philippines has maintained its top two ranking in the IELTS English test in Asia over the years. It has also been rated as the country with the highest level of business English in the world.

Those who teach undergo extensive training before embarking as online home-based English teachers. Online teachers should have:
  • College degree
  • Can speak English well
  • Should have the capability to do home-based teaching by having a reliable internet connection and a good computer setup.
Chinese children learn a lot from Filipino teachers, whom they often see as professional and passionate. It also helps that Filipino teachers and Chinese students share common cultural ground and the same time zone, making schedule healthy for both teacher and students. 51Talk’s platform has been available in the country for the last 7 years with training centers in key provinces like Bacolod, Baguio, Cavite, Cebu, Davao, Pampanga & Pasig.
