Study English abroad. MONEY? Or QUALITY?

Study English abroad. MONEY?  Or QUALITY?

日本語バージョンはこちらをクリック

赤ちゃんThis one is primarily dedicated to the ones who are considering studying English in the Philippines and to those who have been in constant search for the right place to study.

Let’s begin at the beginning. You will start your search by keying in “English Schools in the Philippines”. Google will give you more than a hundred hits (at least that’s what I got when I googled it here in the Philippines). Then, the next thing you will do is investigate the first top 5. You will visit their respective websites; find out their locations, check their methods, go to the price section, then make a decision. I am not saying that everyone does it in the order mentioned, but that’s pretty much how it is done, right?

 

right choice
 

Mmmm… Some might say, “the method is effective”, but most will say, “the price is low”. Of course I am not discounting the possibility that there are those who make their choices on the basis of location. Or, there might be a small number who will say ,“ I don’t know”. Oh, I hope this last one is not true. Nevertheless, the biggest factor which influences one’s choice is the price.

basis of quality
 

We live in the 21st century. It’s the era of information technology. We live at a time when a plain-looking woman can look stunning in a picture, thanks to Photoshop. It’s the era where money talks louder than justice and quality, among others. However, this is also the time where we need to get wiser than we have always been.

 

a little game
 

1)     The majority of the students are beginner* and/or elementary*.

  1. Yes                                              b.   No
(If your answer is YES, you will likely learn textbook English because your lessons will mostly be based on textbooks.

2)     Most students are intermediate and/or advanced*.
  1. Yes                                              b.   No
(If your answer is YES, you will likely learn natural English because your lessons will mostly be based on different sources; your experience, your teachers’ knowledge of the language and its culture, current events and some useful textbooks carefully chosen for your needs.)

 

最後に
Finally, I think it is unfair to say that just because you think you are a beginner, you don’t deserve to be in a language institute where you will find seasoned teachers. It is, in fact, the wisest thing to do; to enroll in a school where teachers are experienced because building a language foundation is very crucial. Once it is done wrong, it will be shaky. Your language foundation must be right from the start!

 

 

Legends:

1)      *Beginners. These students are learning the ABC of the English language. Speaking for them is still very difficult. Their sentences are very basic. They often speak very slowly. They have to translate.

2)      *Elementary. Students at this level are more eager to speak, but they do so slowly because they arrange words in their minds. In other words, they translate. Their sentences are still simple.

3)      *Intermediate. These students can communicate well enough. Their listening and speaking skills are good enough. They can earn between 650– 850 points in TOEIC. (This estimation is based on what I have encountered so far.)

4)      *Advanced. These students are well-rounded. They have acquired the language pertinent to their line of work and they can discuss current events. Possible TOEIC score is between 800-930. (This estimation is based on what I have encountered so far.)
