51Talk celebrates “51TalkFlix: Your Future At Home” via live stream

With the way things are going today with our children's education. Its no secret that online schooling is the new norm, just because we dont want to risk our kids health and well-being. That's why online schooling is beneficial to us parents. 

51Talk recently celebrate its annual Teachers' Day via a virtual event attended by over 10,000 of its online English teachers from all corners of the Philippines. 

The event, called “51TalkFlix: Your Future At Home,” was streamed live via their website and YouTube and it aims to honor and celebrate the teaching profession this teachers’ month. Over 2 million pesos worth of prizes were raffled off during the event including exclusive 51Talk merchandise, gift certificates, gadgets, appliances, and laptops.


“We always have an annual gathering for our teachers and this pandemic won’t stop us from doing it again this year. We consider the teachers’ month as the most wonderful time of the 51Talk year. More than 10,000 of our online English teachers participated and we were overwhelmed by the turnout,” said 51Talk Country Head Jennifer Que.

“Because all our teachers are home-based, it made sense to mount the grand event virtually. It’s exciting to hold a seamless online experience and connect with everyone. There are no boundaries anymore so we were able to reach more of our teachers to participate,” Ms. Que added.


51Talk Founder and CEO Jack Huang was also virtually present straight from 51Talk’s headquarters in Beijing, China. “I’m so happy to see everyone enjoying themselves as we celebrate and honor our teachers at 51Talk. I want everyone to know how grateful 51Talk is for your dedication and hard work, and for brightening our students’ day one lesson at a time,” said Mr. Huang.


“2020 is another special year for 51Talk. It marks 51Talk’s 9th year as a platform & 4th year of being listed in the NYSE. I salute all of the teachers who have been with us for many years now and I thank you for the trust and for believing in the 51Talk platform. As we move forward to the next year, expect greater and better things from 51Talk,” he added.


As COVID-19 forced the shutdown of physical schools in China earlier this year, Chinese parents used the extra time their children had to book additional English lessons on the online education platform. The surge of additional lessons was delivered by 51Talk’s more than 25,000 home-based teachers in the Philippines. This prompted 51Talk to attract 30,000 Filipino teachers this year to fulfil the increasing demand of online English education in China, an industry that enjoys explosive growth annually.


The 51TalkFlix event also showcased the awe-inspiring talents of the teachers in its annual competition, Talent to the Max. 51Talk’s outstanding teachers and clubs were also recognized. A special segment of Chinese students giving their teachers a heart-warming tribute on this special day was also part of the program.


The event also featured performances from today’s hottest stars such as legendary OPM singer/songwriter Ebe Dancel who serenaded the teachers, and Asia’s Phoenix, Morissette, who wowed the crowd with her rendition of pop songs and original singles.


Rounding out the list of personalities during the event was 51Talk’s Philippine Brand Ambassador Pia Wurtzbach, who delivered an inspirational message. Pia was chosen to represent 51Talk because of her long-time advocacy of empowering Filipinos through livelihood opportunities. Because the pandemic affected and displaced millions of Filipino workers, Pia used her voice and platform to talk about 51Talk and the earning opportunities of being an online English teacher.


“When I joined the 51Talk family, I was thrilled to help spread the word about the 30,000 livelihood opportunities on the platform. I love to empower my fellow Pinoys and I believe in our skills, dedication, and our capability to succeed and flourish when faced with opportunities,” said Pia. “To all of the 51Talk teachers, Happy Teacher’s Day!”


Before the event wrapped up, Ms. Que thanked the thousands of teachers who participated in the teachers’ day celebration while promising to deliver an even bigger and better event next year.


“51Talk is the best place to be right now. To all 51Talk teachers, thank you for enabling our students to speak up, stand out and succeed. Keep up the good work and Happy Teachers’ day to all of you!” Ms. Que exclaimed.

When Does Your “Pwede Na” Attitude Become Risky? Recent Survey Reveals only 50% of Filipinos Observe Safe Wash Habits

A recent 2020 Philippines Handwashing Habits Survey* revealed that 99% of Filipinos washed their hands more in the last 6 months, but only 50% do the proper steps for a safe wash. Despite numerous campaigns from health authorities like the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Department of Health (DOH), some Filipinos continue to fall into the pits of the “puwede na” attitude even when it comes to handwashing.

The study identified that “washing quickly with soap and water” is the commonly observed practice among other people, and that 50% are guilty of unsafe handwashing habits like washing without soap, washing for less than 20 seconds, or even just using tissue.

In the health guidelines released by the DOH, safe handwashing is regarded as the first line of defense to prevent the spread of germs and viruses. #SafeWash includes the use of soap and running water and hand scrubbing with an adequate period of at least 20 seconds.

While these public health advisories remain to be rampant, the survey has uncovered that Filipinos’ bad hand hygiene habits die hard.

Filipinos Are Guilty of These Common Handwashing Mistakes Without Realizing It

These incidents of unsafe handwashing are said to be commonly observed at home with 40% of the respondents having at least seen someone they know practice improper handwashing.

The real problem with unsafe handwashing is that this habit is deep-rooted in every Filipino. At one point everyone is guilty of committing these poor practices: the quick washing of hands, spraying a small amount of water to the hands, mere wiping or rubbing of hands, and the use of tissue paper to clean hands.

Several researches have shown that handwashing habit is inherent in nature. It develops in the early life stages and becomes a habitual behavior as one ages, and this poses the risk that when one grows up with poor hand hygiene habits, it can be ingrained for a lifetime without realizing it.

Cross-contamination is the main consequence when people do not exercise a safe wash. Respiratory illnesses like the common cold and influenza, and nosocomial infections like E.coli and MRSA are caused by the spreading of germs and bacteria on the hands.

This lack of knowledge on safe wash practices was validated in the survey with an alarming number of less than 5% of the respondents who do not realize the key times when to wash hands. This includes -- before eating, after coming from outside the house, after using the toilet, after eating, and after shaking someone’s hands, as only the first two key times were regarded as important by the respondents.

*The PH Handwashing Habits Survey was conducted by Brandworks Market Intelligence and Consulting with a sample size of 240 Filipino men and women, aged 18 to 50, based in Metro Manila from SEC ABCD. The study was a series of face-to-face interviews within the period of September 4 – 7, 2020.

DOH Promotes Proper Safe Wash Habits

The Department of Health (DOH) launched in August its nationwide information campaign with easy-to-remember BIDA Solusyon guidelines that urge Filipinos to partake in behavioral changes to reduce the transmission of the virus. The guidelines include wearing masks, hand sanitation, social distancing, and obtaining of correct information about the pandemic.

In its communications, the DOH highlights the importance of safe handwashing habits outlining the following steps: First, wet hands with clean, running water and apply soap. Lather the hands and rub them together with soap by cleaning thoroughly from the back of the hands, the palm, between the fingers, under the nails. Scrub the hands for at least 20 seconds and not less. Then rinse the hands under clean and running water and finally dry the hands using a clean towel.

This adequate habit of a safe wash is proven to destroy the structure of the virus, thus, greatly minimizing chances of contracting and transmitting the virus.

Safe handwashing, along with the wearing of mask and practice of social distancing, is the first line of defense against germs and viruses. Today, the duty lies in the hands of every Filipino to teach and learn the value of a safe wash that starts at home, and not fall into the traps of the “pwede na” mentality.

*The PH Handwashing Habits Survey was conducted by Brandworks Market Intelligence and Consulting with a sample size of 240 Filipino men and women, aged 18 to 50, based in Metro Manila from SEC ABCD. The study was a series of face-to-face interviews within the period of September 4 – 7, 2020.
