51Talk – Why Work For Us?

Who we are:

51Talk is China’s largest online English education company, and is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (COE). We bring students and teachers together for live, online English classes.

51Talk was founded in 2011, and since then has expanded globally. As the first online Chinese education company to go public on the New York Stock Exchange, 51Talk continues to make headlines with its strategic partnerships across the academic world, including: Highlights, Pearson, Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, And the American International School of Utah.

Our founders built 51Talk with an inspiring mission: love and empower every child. 51Talk is looking for motivated, engaging teachers to give Chinese children fun and fruitful learning experiences. Together, we will forge a bright future for the next generation of young learners in China.

Our Brand

51Talk (pronounced as FIVE-ONE-TALK) can be translated as “I want to talk”in Chinese. In Chinese, five is pronounced similarly to the word “I” and one is homophonous with the word “want.” That being said, it is one of our goals to ensure that our students have optimal “talk-time” during their lessons. It also sums up the students’ aspiration to master the English language.

Our Mission

To make quality education accessible and affordable and to enable students to talk to the world. By providing students across China with access to the world’s best quality education, we are achieving our mission of helping China speak with the world.

Our Vision

To be recognized as a highly respectable online education platform for centuries.

Our Values

PASSION - Make continuous improvement a habit.

CUSTOMER FOCUS - Help customers achieve their dreams.

GAME CHANGER - Dare to try new things.

CAMARADERIE - Trust and respect each other.

51Talk is all about having a passion for teaching kids and making personal connections. What makes us unique?

Convenient Career Growth

Being an online teacher shouldn’t just be a part-time job - it should be an opportunity to evolve your career and make an impact. As a 51Talk teacher you’ll get the earnings, flexibility, and convenience from working at home, with the added benefit of a personal network that you control and grow with.


Building Connections

51Talk teachers build connections with their students in a way that no other education platform can offer. As you begin your online teaching journey, you’ll develop a network of students who adapt to your teaching style and will book your lessons again and again.

This personal touch is the basis of what it means to have a 51Talk network, and is why 51Talk teachers can expect to have stable and predictable income that scales to their needs.
