We also offer weekend trips, activities and excursions to places of interest throughout Cebu. Activities are optional and students are welcome to sign up before the scheduled activity. These activities may include island hopping, trekking to waterfalls and mountains, zip lining, whale shark watching, swimming, beach resort hopping, visiting museums, going to festivals, watching movies, and touring to religious and historic locations.

 

6. Special Features

 

  • Flash Test

    A short test given to the student regularly or as often as every day for them to review on specific language items and skills previously taught.

     

  • Talk Time

    This 15-minute special class focuses on the students’ ability to express themselves in everyday situations. The speaking practice lessons are aimed at developing functional language.

     

  • Presentation

    Students taking Business English are required to prepare and do a presentation on a topic of their choice as their final evaluation.

     

  • Reading Journal

    The reading activity is designed for students to read for at least 50 minutes during weekends and write a brief response on the reading.

     

  • Real World Simulation

    This gives students the experience to hang out with a buddy teacher outside the classroom so they can practice speaking more naturally.

     

  • English Only Policy

    The EOP is more than a way of improving English. It plays an important role in learning the language. It also helps in creating an environment where students can actually use English to communicate.
