Cebu is the 9th biggest island which is located in the middle of the Philippines. Cebu is famous for its beautiful 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.

STUDENTS 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 begin.

One of my best experiences in Philinter was joining the speech contest. Luckily I got 2nd prize. It was really an unforgettable experience for me. But most of all, meeting my buddy teacher and other good teachers and students was the best of best experiences in Philinter. I know all of my teachers are passionate and I like it. Philinter really helps me improve my English skills. Four 1 on 1 classes focuses on my weak points like speaking and three group classes motivate me to enjoy studying English. I think Philinter has a good education system. As a student, you can meet various nationalities in Philinter. If you choose Philinter, you will not regret your decision. I’m sure.

Ji Hyeon Seoul, South Korea

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 classes compared to other schools and the subjects are taught by top calibre teachers. Moreover they have special courses which cater the needs of the students. The teachers are professional 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 multicul tural 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 I should not choose Philinter when I have all the reasons to study here? Come and Join us!

Yutaro (Nakamura Yutaro) Tokyo, Japan

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 is organized and in order. That is why Philinter is the most suitable place to study English.

STUDENTS

Anthony (Vo Minch Tuan) 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.

Godia (Hsu Pei Yu) Taichung, Taiwan

Philinter Because Philinter has a balanced number of different nationalities, I am able to share my ideas by using English often. It is very obvious that students can enjoy a lot here. I found out that this school has a very conducive environment for learning and it makes many shy students like me feel comfortable. Teachers are kind, friendly and are always at a professional level. The place is very safe and has a sort of peaceful setting for students to study better. Aside from that, this school does not only improve one’s English skill academically, but it also boosts one’s potential in developing their skills so you can learn in a fun way! social For those who want to learn English, I think Philinter would be the best institution for you to study in. It has a high-standard in quality education, a safe environment, and a friendly and fun atmosphere.
