Before I came here, I heard about English schools in the Philippines from my friends. They said, “There are many korean people there. However, I was worried that I would speak only Korean. Surprisingly, there are plenty of students with various nationalities in CIP such as Japanese, Thai, Taiwanese, Vietnamese, Chinese and Korean. Therefore, I can make foreign friends. On the other hand, I was worried about my English because I didn’t have the confidence. But now, I am no longer afraid to talk with foreigners because I overcome my fear. I think I have improved my English not only through my friends but also from my teachers. I really like my teachers who are very friendly and funny. I had a lot of experiences for 4 months. I went to Manila, Mt. Pinatubo and in Jakarta, Indonesia. Also, I joined a lot of CIP activities such as EOP challenge, sports activities and volunteer. When I studied English in Korea, I really didn’t like it because we always had to memorize. However, After I came here, I realized that English is very useful and interesting because I can talk with foreigners. In fact, I did not get board when I studied English in CIP. My family and friends were very worried about me because it was my first time to go to other country alone and they thought Philippines is very dangerous. Hence, I learned many things smoothly for 4 months and I met a lot of good people. Therefore, I am very happy. I will miss my friends an teachers. As I go back to Korea, I will continue to study very hard, so that my 4 months of effort will not be in vain.
