English online education platform 51Talk recently hosted a “Partners Appreciation and Thanksgiving” event held recently at the SMX Aura Convention Center in Taguig City.
Among the partners cited was the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT). Both parties committed to promoting community development with 51Talk offering to jump-start their online teaching career with the use of DITC’s facilities and centers.
Both entities have also been working closely with PLDT-Smart Foundation’s Gabay-Guro to offer digital livelihood training and opportunities.
Just recently, tech giant Huwaei and 51Talk signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to initiate steps in promoting information and communications technology to reach out to more teachers to join the platform.
Jack Huang, 51Talk founder and CEO, led the event and personally thanked and acknowledged them as being key drivers in the company’s success and emphasized their role in creating more opportunities for online teachers across the Philippines.
“It is also very timely that we solidify and reaffirm our partnerships during the celebration of National Teachers Month. When I started 51Talk, I searched for the best English teachers, and this is where I found them. That’s the main reason why I chose the Philippines because I believe in the world-class talent of Filipino teachers, and I want to bring that to the world stage with the use of our platform,” shared Huang.
51Talk country head Jennifer Que said the company’s long-term goal is for the Philippine home-based, online English education sector be recognized as a significant contributor to the economy and nation-building.
She added: “Studies tell us that the demand for online English teachers will continue to increase. This is the very opportune time for us in 51Talk and our partners to gear up and prepare as there is so much work to be done.”
