  • 2. English is being used officially in the Philippines. It means wherever you go, you can be easily exposed to English. In addition, people are friendly to foreign- ers. That is why so many students from all over the world are coming to the Philip- pines to improve their English skills. The Philippines consists of 7,107 islands. Cebu is the 9th biggest island which is located in the middle of the Philippines. Cebu is famous for its beau- tiful nature, beach resorts, friendly people, and historical spots. It is surrounded by many other islands, which gives it a naturally typhoon-free climate for most parts of the year, thus giving it the title the paradise of the Philippines and the queen city of the south. Mactan is on of the major tourist destinations in Cebu. It is where the international airport and lots of famous resorts are found. Students are able to enjoy many activities such as scuba diving, island hopping, snorkeling and other water sports. Its proximity to the city and local beaches make it an ideal place to live and study.

  • 11. 10 TESTIMONIALS STUDENT TESTIMONIALSPHILINTER I studied in Philinter for 2 months and everything about this school is good.The teachers in Philinter are very helpful and friendly. They help me much to improve my English. I really enjoy 1 on 1 classes, I think this is very useful and the teachers really taught me a lot. I always have a good time in Philinter since I have many friends: Koreans, Japanese, Taiwanese and Filipinos. During my Philinter life, I use English all the time because my teachers, my roommate, classmates and other friends are from other countries. If you want to study English, you must come to Philinter. You have everything to study here and they have the finest teachers too. During the weekends and holidays, students can do various activities like they can go to the beach, go Scuba Diving, snorkelling, island hopping and shopping. It is very interesting. The best part,for me, about studying in Philinter, is meeting International friends with whom I have made unforgettable memories with. Aaron (Tran Viet Cuong) Hanoi, Veitnam There are many reasons why I love Philinter. First, the teachers are very friendly and very professional. They are not only teachers but also friends and they make me feel very at home. Philinter has a lot of classes which helped me improve my English skill, most especially one on one class, where there is one teacher for one student. The school also has a lot of facilities that cater to your needs, areas like the Library, Swimming Pool and the Dormitory. Philinter is a suitable place for you to study, so come here and experience Philinter, where fun and Learning English begins. Anthony (Vo Minch Tuan) Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam Yutaro (Nakamura Yutaro) Tokyo, Japan Why did I choose Philinter? This is a question I often hear from people since I arrived in this school. With confidence and pride I can tell you all my reasons. Philinter offers a lot of 1 on 1 class compared to other schools and the subject are taught by top calibre teachers. Moreover they have special courses which cater the needs of the students. The teachers are profession- al enough to adjust their way of teaching to the students’ English level. They can customize and create lessons that are suitable for you. In addition, the best thing in this school is the variety of activities done every month which provides opportunities for students and teachers to socialize. Since we have a multicultural population, going out with people of different nationalities improves your English skills and entertains you a lot. Some of the friends I made in this school have already graduated but I still keep in touch with them. So can you tell me why should not I choose Philinter when I have all the reasons to study here? Come and Join us! Studying in Philinter is my first experience to study English in another country. I chose to study in Philinter because the tuition fee is suitable for me. The teachers in the school are very understanding and patient to the students. The school equipment and facilities are also state of the art. I have a lot of opportunities to improve my English skills in the school. I also got the chance to make friends with people from different countries such as Japan, Korea, Taiwan and the Philippines. If it is possible to study here again, I would definitely come back. Teresa (Le Huynh Minh Thu) Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam I didn’t have any idea or information about Philinter before I came to study in the school. When I first checked the Philinter website, I read their courses, curriculum and viewed the photos. From that moment on, I already liked Philinter, so I chose this school for my English study abroad. When I arrived, my first impression about the school campus is that it was really clean: the school building, the dormitory including the surroundings. After living and studying in Philinter for just a few days, I adjusted easily to the life in Philinter, with the school rules and with the environment, even if Cebu is very different from Taiwan. After getting used to my life in the school, I got rid of my worries about living in a foreign country, I also felt safe and secure in the school and outside. In addition, Philinter teachers are very kind and helpful to students. Regarding the class schedule, students have the freedom to choose their classes and teachers based on their preferences. I studied in Philinter for 4 weeks but I never changed my teachers from the start, not even once because I liked all my teachers in 1 on 1 and group classes. The school has rules and regulations for students to follow, so everything will be organized and in order. That is why Philinter is the most suitable place to study English.
