100,000 PH Filipino Online English Teachers to be Hired

A China-based company plans to hire 100,000 English Language on-line teachers from the Philippines in the next 5 years.

51Talk founder and CEO Jack Huang recently signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) that will ensure stable internet connectivity for these services.

“We hope that internet connectivity in the Philippines can be further improved in the future,” Huang said.

A 51Talk teacher, Mike Gerald Alfiscar of Bacolod City related that on-line work is better for work-life balance and he is one of the company’s success stories.

“Wala kang mami-miss out na event sa buhay ng mga minamahal mo kasi ikaw ang pumipili ng schedule mo (You won’t miss out significant events of your loved ones because you get to choose your schedule.),” Alfiscar said.

DICT on its part assured that with the entry of the third telco player, the digital infrastructure for the industry will be more alluring to tech-based investors and will assure more jobs in the country because of the said sector. Also, the DICT  is accelerating its program on Free Wi-Fi Centers around the country which will complement the country’s ICT infrastructure to meet the demands of the business sector.

Jack Huang also pointed out that Filipino English instructors have neutral accents that puts a premium on their services. He also noted that the Philippines and China have the same time-zones that enable them to have advantageous working schedules.
