    How much is the salary of Filipino teachers in China?

    Many Chinese internet platforms are now looking for language instructors in the Philippines, making it a rapidly increasing source for China's expanding English teaching industry.

    A lot of Chinese students' initial choices for international English instructors are native speakers from the US, UK, and Australia. Filipino instructors, on the other hand, are becoming more popular among Chinese language students who are on a budget.

    a surge of interest

    Mike Alfi begins his day at 6 a.m. with a computer and a huge grin on his face. The 27-year-old Filipino from Bacolod has been educating online Chinese pupils thousands of kilometers away for three years as a home-based English language instructor.

    After many Chinese online teaching platforms established branches or teaching bases in the Philippines, Filipino English instructors began to gain popularity in China. This group consists of 51Talk and First Future, for example.

    Internet sites like this mostly cater to students in kindergarten through 12th grade (K-12). When Chinese pupils get home from school, Filipino online instructors become active. Even before the start of the school day, they choose online tutors.

    "On average, I put in 6 to 7 hours each day. My alarm goes off at 5 a.m., and work begins at 6 a.m. The busiest hour is six o'clock in the evening when students return from school. Weekends are usually hectic for me since I work all day "Alfi chimed in with his opinion.

    It is estimated that more than 10,000 Filipinos work for online education platforms, and that number is expected to rise rapidly.

    "The online education industry is worth $100 billion. China's parents, particularly those from the country's most affluent regions, have high expectations for their children's education, therefore many of them turn to the internet for help. The most popular courses are English and mathematical reasoning "CEO Wu Jing of Koudai Kids, an online school, said to the Global Times.

    China is expected to be short 500,000 international English instructors by 2020, according to 51Talk. With ten million pupils signed up, the business claims it will hire 100,000 more Filipino instructors in the next five years, taking the current total to 16,000,000.

    What makes the Philippines so special?

    However, the Philippines would be the last location a Chinese person would go for an English instructor if they were looking for one.

    When using the Chinese search engine Baidu to look for "Filipino English instructors," the associated search area includes "Filipino English teachers' accent."

    "Filipinos do not have a natural command of the English language. Due to the fact that many Chinese parents are illiterate in English, they are unable to determine if Filipino instructors enunciate their native language correctly. There is no question that instructors from the West are more trustworthy "said Xiong's mother, the mother of a 10-year-old son.

    Chinese online teaching platforms aim to remove any concerns by emphasizing their use of native English speakers with excellent accents, fluency in English, and solid educational backgrounds.

    Only 3% of foreign instructors, according to certain businesses, can pass their admission test.

    The official language of the Philippines is English. Because it was a US colony for almost half a century, some Filipinos do speak with a distinct American accent. Many others, on the other hand, speak with a distinct regional twang. Filipinos with higher levels of education talk more fluently and pronounce words more accurately.

    The advantages of learning with Filipino English instructors are apparent to the growing number of Chinese who want to enhance their English. Chinese teachers' online courses cost more than $17.6 for a 25-minute session, while Filipino instructors' courses are just $40.

    In the Philippines, Chinese firms also have an advantage when it comes to cost management. "Teachers and technological upkeep are much less expensive in the Philippines. Because the nation shares a time zone with China, it's easier to manage the staff here "Wu made the statement.

    A win-win situation

    Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has said that creating employment is a key priority of his administration. In accordance with his goals, Chinese online education platforms are being expanded in the Philippines.

    A "promotion" for Filipino English instructors in China was launched by Duterte last year, and he was directly involved in it. For him, at least 100,000 Filipino English instructors were required in China before the Boao Forum for Asia in 2018. Governments in both nations have subsequently begun talking about employing them.

    Ambassador Chito Sta Romana of the Philippines in China informed the Global Times recently that the two countries had reached an agreement under which 2,000 Chinese colleges would begin employing 2,000 Filipino English instructors.

    The positive outlook for online English education providers is good news for 51Talk COO Zhang Liming. Because of this, Huang believes that more Chinese people will believe that Filipinos are capable of becoming excellent English instructors.

    Online instructors may also be able to take advantage of this possibility. In the Philippines, online English tutoring is a well-paying profession.

    According to industry insiders who spoke with the Global Times, the pay for online instructors varies depending on their level of expertise, popularity, and amount of time working. They make over 3,000 yuan a month on average. Popular teachers may expect to earn up to 10,000 yuan per month if they are well-liked.

    According to the Philippine Star, the starting salary for public school teachers in the Philippines is 21,000 pesos ($400).

    Many Filipinos think that if they were to teach English in China, they would be paid more. Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III previously projected that they might earn up to 60,000 pesos ($1,150) a month as a result of the country's growing middle class.

    Alfi aspires to one day work as an English teacher in China.

    "Right now, I'm trying to improve my Chinese skills. Working in China is something I've always wanted to do. Why not take advantage of the situation?"
