1. High Quality Lessons
A lot of private 1:1 lessons provided by ESL schools in the Philippines provides more intensive training of English with personalized curriculum. This greatly increases the student’s opportunity to speak out in class and to have the lesson contents better matched to their linguistic needs. This is particularly effective for beginners or for students that need to achieve significant improvement in a shorter time period.
2. Good for the first step on a pathway program
Studying in the Philippines is very good preparation for students who are planning to study or work in English speaking countries. The Philippines is the ideal place for pre-study before long-term study abroad such as MBA and graduate schools and all schools offer specialized programs to prepare for standardized tests such as TOEFL, IELTS, and TOEIC.
3. All-Inclusive Packages
Every school in the Philippines provides its own dormitory or affiliated hotel in the basic packages and programs are organized to let students focus on studying and enjoying their school life. Schools also offer many extra services such as meals, laundry, room cleaning, airport pick-up, shuttle services, etc. This means that agents don’t need to make extra effort to look for accommodation or host families for each student.
4. Stress-free VISA
Students from most countries can enter the Philippines on a tourist visa for a period of 30 days and then make any necessary visa extensions or adjustments with the assistance of their schools after arrival.
5. Low prices and high incentives for agents
The price for studying English in the Philippines is much cheaper than in other countries, especially considering the high ratio of 1:1 lessons, the daily teaching hours and the all-inclusive meals, accommodation, etc.
Moreover, the commission for agents are based not only on the tuition fees, but also on the entrance and accommodation fees. So, there are many incentives to send students to the Philippines and we are confident that the positive word-of-mouth will spread quickly so that the number of students will increase year on year.
