Qiao Lei, CEO of BlingABC, an online English teaching platform in Beijing that is a subsid

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

“Some parents may have low requirements for foreign teachers and thin上海419论坛

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

“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.”
