Qiao Lei, CEO of BlingABC, an online English teaching platform in Beijing that is a subsid
上海419论坛品茶微信iary of New Oriental Education and Technology Group, said the company has maintained strict
qualification requirements for all foreign teachers since it was founded two years ago.
All teachers must be native speakers, hold a bachelor’s degree along with CELTA (Cert上海419论坛
ificate in English Language Teaching to Adults), TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) or TES
OL(Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certificates. In addition, all the上海419论坛品茶微信
ir relevant information and qualifications are open to general scrutiny on its platform, he said.
The company has adopted an evaluation system based on credit for its foreign teachers.上海419论坛
Points are deducted from those who violate company regulations, such as arriving late or being the subject of co
mplaints from parents, which will affect their salary and position, Qiao added.
上海419论坛品茶微信Kelly Hong, director of Bling-ABC’s Center of Foreign Teacher Management, said the c
ompany records all classes on its platform and they are reviewed by staff members and parents.
“Some parents may have low requirements for foreign teachers and thin上海419论坛
k that native speakers should be able to teach English well, but that’s simply not the ca
se－just like not every Chinese person is able to teach the Chinese language,” she said.
上海419论坛品茶微信Hong added that establishments still need professionals who know how to manage a class, understand body lang
uage, can energize students and know the basic principles and methods of teaching a second language.
Qiao noted that the high demand in the sector resulted in several English-la上海419论坛
nguage platforms being founded almost every week last year. However, many subseq
uently closed because the teachers they employed did not meet the stringent quality standards.上海419论坛品茶微信
“The market has a way of weeding out companies that engage in malpractice. At the end of the
day, parents still prefer foreign teachers who can offer high-quality English tuition to their children.”
