Advantages of this course

  • This course has the typical format for students studying English in the Philippines, combining 1:1 and group classes. Unlike other schools’ curriculum in native countries which only provide group classes, schools in the Philippines have a balance between 1:1 and group classes which gives students much more speaking practice and allows more in-depth study than in native countries. Market research shows that students can improve their English faster than learning in other countries, especially from beginner to upper-intermediate. This course is CIP’s upgraded version of the classic course in the Philippines.
