51TALK ONLINE ESL TEACHER TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS

1. Wired Internet Connection

- First on the list is, of course, the internet. It's the most important because it won't be called online unless you do it on the web. Please take note that the minimum speed required to pass this requirement is 3 Mbps and the connection should be DSL Cable or Fiber. 

2. LAN Connection

- WIFI CONNECTIONS ARE NOT ALLOWED. Your laptop or computer should be connected via LAN cable. Why? It's because you should have a stable internet connection when teaching and having it connected to a LAN cable can make a huge difference.

 - This could be too technical for others but your computer or laptop must reach these specifications: 
  • Operating System: Windows 7 or above or Mac
  • CPU: Intel Core i3 6th gen and above / i5 to i7 4th gen and up / AMD A-Series A8 7500 and above / AMD Ryzen

4. Headset with Extended Mic 

Clearer voice or sound can get you more students when you are a 51talk Online ESL Teacher! That's why a headset with a noise-canceling feature is HIGHLY recommended. I personally use Plantronics 628. It works well for an affordable price. Invest now!

5. Webcam 

You should have an HD webcam with 720P resolution. So that your student can see your teaching aids, realias, whiteboard clearly. I can recommend what I use, it is Logitech C310 and I bought it online.

6. Teaching Space

Ready your home-office. Teaching in a well-lit, clutter-free, and quiet environment will motivate you to teach more! Make sure you have a plain white background that you can decorate after you got the teaching job. In 51talk, they provide tarpaulin design and you will just print it and put it in your background.
