  1. 1. ClarkofInstitute the Philippines INTRODUCTION TO CIP Clark Institute of the Philippines was established in 2007. This institute is an accredited one-on-one English education center by the immigration bureau and the education department. CIP is located at Lot 18-19, Blk. 37, Kamantigue St., Brgy. Cut-Cut, Angeles City, Pampanga. Angeles City is classified as a first-class, highly- urbanized city. The school accepts students aged 7 and above from various countries in Asia like Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and Russia. These students have classes in comfortable and well lit one-on-one and group classrooms. They are housed in a beautifully designed and fully furnished dormitory. Students may enroll in any program which suit their needs, and the pro- grams are ESL, IELTS, TOEIC, TOEFL, LCCI or Business English. CIP is very proud of their native-led one on one and group classes. Having a group class comprised of students from different nationalities and a native teacher allows for a wide variety of multi-cultural interaction. Learning a culture can be as important as learning a language itself. The native teachers strive to build a very active, fun and educational atmosphere in all of their group classes. This allows students to study in a group setting with other students of an equal level. CIP has been around since the year 2007 and have been instrumental to the success of many individuals who have taken the TOEFL ibt, TOEIC and IELTS or plain ESL.

  9. 9. ClarkofInstitute the Philippines BUDDY TEACHER Living outside of your home would always send a nervous feeling to anyone and living outside of your country would make anyone feel worse. Concerns about safety are always expressed during any student’s preparation to study in the Philippines. It is a very acceptable feeling, and CIP has always been proud to be called the student’s home away from their home. The buddy teacher is an integral part of this. Each student is paired with their own buddy upon their arrival. A buddy teacher’s role initially is to be the student’s academic adviser. Together with the student, these teachers evaluate the student’s level, create a study plan, determine strengths and weaknesses, coordinate with other teachers regarding the student’s goals and ways to achieve it. In my point of view this is a very rigid definition of being a buddy teacher because it is a common sight that buddy teachers and students after some time grow attached to each other. They develop some bond which makes their relationship like friends or siblings and not just student and teacher anymore. This kind of support helps students deal with their homesickness and other personal matters that may greatly affect their stay in CIP. Buddy teachers, therefore are not just academic advisers, but also a pillar of strength and personal friend. CIP has always put students first and continuously provide services beneficial to students. The buddy system has grown to be more than what it was supposed to be, it is now an essential aspect of providing personalized attention to students. If studying in CIP, one would be a witness to the dedication of teachers, who often go out of their own way to help these students.

  11. 11. ClarkofInstitute the Philippines ORIENTATION DAY CIP students are required to arrive on the weekend before their first day, so that they can attend the orientation on their first Monday. The orientation is significant because students have the right to be informed about the do’s, don’ts and pertinent information in the academy. The first day starts with the student’s initial level test. This test helps determine the student’s initial levels and that their classes, books and teachers can be matched accordingly. For aspiring TOEIC, TOEFL and IELS students, the results of the initial level test serves as an index if there are qualified to enter those courses. After the level test, which lasts for an hour and a half, is the school orientation and tour, wherein rules and regulations are discussed in detail and the school facilities are showed. After the tour is lunch and later on the city tour. During the city tour, students are brought to malls and banks near CIP, so that they are given a chance to shop, exchange their money and identify themselves with the city environment. Upon return to CIP, students will then settle their accounts with the general manager and rest. The next day, students are required to visit the office at 8:30 am to get their timetable and discuss with the office any question or clarifications regarding their schedule, materials and teachers. Lastly, at exactly 9:00 am on their first Tuesday, new students will have their first class.

Red alerts against any tourism activities in the Philippines has been cancelled which could be treated as a positive sign for CIP and all its partners. E
