WHAT IS 51TALK?
We are a Beijing-based project dedicated to expanding the reach of high-quality English education. We bridge the gap between young Chinese learners and foreign talent by providing a unique one-on-one online learning experience accessible to students throughout China.
We strive to provide our students with lessons unparalleled in both quality and convenience. We do this by giving our teachers the tools and support necessary to succeed.
We will also consider experienced teachers with degrees in other fields, as well as inexperienced applicants who have a pleasant personality, a passion for teaching, a good attitude, and who are highly motivated to learn our methods.
