CIP would be the best academy for learning English in the Philippines. As I have arrived in CIP, I felt cozy and tidy. The first impression about CIP was well-organized and it has a friendly environment. In the beginning, various staff from different countries helped me to adjust myself and gave me some advice wholeheartedly when I was in trouble. Furthermore, teachers do their very best in order to improve my English level higher as much as I can. They knew I was passionate and eager to learn English. Aside from those academic factors, there are some things to relieve my stress from studying. There is a pool near the dormitories where I can swim and hang out with my friends. Nepo Quad is also so close to CIP that if you want to try Filipino food, you can easily eat out.
Above those components were combined in a positive way and worked as the fertilizer while I was studying. Actually I was frustrated at my speaking skill. While I was studying. My teachers noticed my concern and gave me solutions to feel at ease. Also, the textbooks that I used are properly arranged according to student’s level.
For me, having a variety of international friends was helpful. For example, When I was sick, my friends took care of me and gave me a lot of medicines. I was surprised how they were so caring. Although we were beginners, we did our best to use some expressions to each other.
As a result, there has been improvement in my English skills. I am proud to say that I have achieved one of my goals before going to Australia. Thanks to my teachers and friends. I believe that I can get advanced rapidly.
