SAN FRANCISCO, April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Technology has been changing the landscape of education, and bringing new possibilities to schools, instructors and students. DaDaABC, the leading EdTech company in China, takes great advantage of technology, making English learning easier. This e-learning trend attracts attention from all over the world. In a recent story published by Al Jazeera English, DaDaABC shows its great popularity among parents and kids in China, as well as among instructors living outside China.
"American teachers from half a world away are able to give a class while students sitting in front of a computer at home. Remote learning with lessons delivered by live video makes lessons possible and affordable," said Andrew Thomas, the reporter in the video.
"You can teach from anywhere, and I feel this is just so convenient. It's something you can be right here at your computer anytime, and I do feel this is the future," said Gabriel, a DaDaABC instructor.
As an emerging company with huge potential, last year, Chinese investors put over five hundred million RMB into the business. "This year, we've seen a huge growth. We have eight hundred employees at this moment, and we'll have a thousand by next month. This number includes our sales representatives, teaching assistants, and technical staff that are based in Shanghai, and more importantly we have thousands of freelance English instructors all over the world," said Elvisa Yao, PR Director of DaDaABC.
One-on-one Classes That Spark Cultural Conversations
All classes at DaDaABC are one-on-one, so that the instructors don't need to split their energy to twenty students at the same time as the traditional English learning classroom does. Moreover, each student has his/her regular instructor, which encourages a long-term relationship between a student and an instructor.
"At DaDaABC, students and instructors are more like friends. We are happy to see two-way communications. Instructors are able to know more about China and Chinese culture through talking to students in class," said Joyce Shum, Education VP of DaDaABC.
"I love traveling and experience different cultures all over the world. Teaching English online gives me the flexibility to wave from anywhere. I get to know so much about China that can't be learned from books, and I'm totally fascinated by Chinese culture. I have so much fun with the kids," said Henry, a DaDaABC instructor from the United States.
DaDaABC Instructors: A Strong Sense of Mission
Instructors may join DaDaABC for different reasons, but they all have a strong sense of mission. Teaching the kids English is crucial, and what is more important is to open up a new world for the kids through classes. Students get to know other parts of the world, their history, culture, and manner, which give them a very comprehensive understanding of other countries.
"I always believe kids are the future of a country, so I want to do what I can do to guide and teach the next generation in China. Some of these students might change or impact China one day, and being part of a kid's growth makes myself proud. I truly wish more and more teachers with the same passion will join us," said Claire, the instructor and recruiter of DaDaABC.
