Open to English learners of all levels of proficiency, this exciting project invites you to develop your skills in a paradisiacal setting! In this fun, cultural exchange program you’ll be immersed in the culture of the Philippines, in beautiful Palawan. Using both classroom based and outdoor activities, the program guarantees you a practical and fun way to improve your English. As you’re taught by professional University lecturers, you’ll have high quality instruction and also benefit from cultural exchanges as you form new friendships with the staff and students at the University. Learning a new language can be difficult but learning in this way will make it more fun and interesting for you! With English being an official language of the Philippines, you’ll be surrounded by road signs, TV, radio media and printed media which communicates through the language. The majority of the people living in the Philippines have a good level of fluency in English making it easy for you to hold natural conversations. Although your studies will be mainly based at the University, you will also enjoy activities in the beautiful outdoor, rural locations and will have the chance to visit projects in the Palawan area.
Available all year around, the project has you staying with participants on other local programs so there’ll be plenty of opportunities for interaction. Additionally, you’ll be working with local University students. There’ll also be time to explore the local area and absorb the culture of the Philippines.
Monday to Friday
Schedules are arranged to address the levels of competency of English for the group. As a result, if the group has a lower competency level there will be more active, outdoor sessions and game-related activities. If the competency level is higher, the classes will be more academic. The lessons will total 5 hours each day and could involve one-to-one tuition, group lessons, practical activities and role plays. After your day of learning, there will be free time to relax, reflect on your learning and visit local attractions.
