51Talk, an NYSE publicly listed company, is the leading online English education company in China and the Philippines, with both the most customers and the largest foreign teacher number. 51 talk aims at providing a comprehensive, all-in one online education platform through its unique foreign teacher 1 to 1 teaching model. Since 2012, it has been operating in the Philippines, creating thousands of jobs for home-based teachers. These teachers work from various parts of the Philippines.
51Talk began their teaching ventures as a small account providing Nihonggo classes for the Chinese.
The inspiration behind the brand can be traced back to when ESL was for the well-off. Japanese and Chinese entrepreneurs knew of many opportunities to grow their businesses, but the language barrier made their attempts to tie up futile. Individuals who were proficient in both languages took advantage of this situation by offering classes, and this made partnerships possible.
Huang JiaJia grabbed the chance to create equal learning opportunities for everybody. His proposition for teaching English instead was met with great interest, and it wasn’t long before investors saw significant potential. It was an overwhelming surprise when, shortly after the launch of 51Talk, thousands of students enrolled. Because the demand grew, Huang JiaJia and his team began outsourcing teaching. Because Filipinos have an excellent command of the English language, 51Talk decided to recruit teachers from the Philippines. The patience of Filipino teachers was perfect for learners at the beginner stage.
ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE (ESL)
English as a second language dates back to the 15th century. Bilingual programs were implemented in order to strengthen ties with other nations and to open more doors for trading. The high price of learning a new language meant not everybody could take advantage of this opportunity, and tutors had to travel in order to teach those who could afford it.
Because of the perpetual advancements in technology, learning has now progressed greatly. From physical school rooms to virtual classrooms, more and more people are now able to obtain knowledge of the universal language of English through the use of the Internet.
