51Talk invites educators, professionals, and aspiring online English teachers to learn the ropes of EFL in their weekly webinar series.
During these trying times, 51Talk, the leading online English teaching platform in the Philippines, offers teachers and professionals the opportunity to earn remotely. 51Talk introduces EFL teaching by hosting a free webinar series every Friday at 2 PM called Earning in the Now Normal: EFL 101 with 51Talk.
EFL, or English as a Foreign Language, is the kind of English learned remotely by students living in a country where English is not used in everyday life. This means that all learners living/residing in China, Korea, Japan, and other countries that do not count English as an official language are all learning English as a foreign language in those countries.
The 51Talk webinar series discusses the basics of EFL teaching, the role of an online EFL teacher, and the reason why participants should grab the opportunity to teach online today. The webinar also discusses the requirements that applicants need to submit and the application process that they undergo to join the platform. A few lucky participants also get the chance to win awesome prizes such as gift certificates. Participants can also have the chance to ask any questions about EFL teaching or joining 51Talk through the live chat after the webinar.
To join the weekly webinar, simply go to 51Talk’s official Facebook page, look for the webinar event at the ‘Events’ tab, and click the YouTube link in the description to stream. Again, admission is free, and anyone can join to learn more about EFL teaching and the opportunities that it can bring you.
51Talk conducts programs like these not only to spread awareness about online EFL teaching but also to provide opportunities to educators, aspiring EFL teachers, and professionals. Moreover, 51Talk offers various training programs to its teachers to help them grow professionally and financially.
For example, 51Talk provides its teachers with free TESOL and TEYL certification. Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) certification is the standard qualification for teaching English to non-native speakers virtually everywhere in the world. Meanwhile, Teaching English to Young Learners (TEYL) certification prepares teachers to handle young learners effectively.
Besides these, 51Talks provides financial growth opportunities to teachers and entrepreneurs by partnering with them to build accredited online teaching centers outside of Metro Manila. Through 51Talk’s Third-party Center Accreditation Program (TPCAP), teachers or entrepreneurs with the right space and equipment can also provide teaching opportunities to locals.
