Attractive employment packages await Filipino teachers in China, which needs more than hundred thousand teachers to help Chinese students learn the English language.
China currently has around 10,000 English teachers, mostly from the Philippines, according to Dr. Zhang Hang, a Chinese language teacher and researcher at the College of International Relations of Huaqiao University.
Chinese people, especially the older ones, can hardly understand, much less speak English, Zhang said.
The Philippines, Zhang said, is known for its excellent English education program, and with its proximity to China, both countries can work together for educational exchanges, especially for strengthening China-Philippines relations. (Source: Leilanie Adriano, Philippine News Agency)
