Since the last quarter of last year CIP has been multiplying its number of students and expanding on faculty size. Currently, the school has 70 multinational students and 55 instructors (Native speakers and Filipinos). It has been catering to Koreans, Japanese, Brazilians and Taiwanese. The institution has broadened its marketing to Russia, Middle East and other parts of the globe.
As for most educational institution its goal is always geared towards human excellence. As for CIP giving the best English Language learning is a serious business its faculty and management take.
Personal accounts of students who have been staying here for a few months and a senior teacher will prove this take.
According to Kimmie a 22 y/o Brazilian/Japanese the learning progress is good. There were a few difficulties that she struggled with like expressing her ideas but because her teachers were patient she improved in no time. In regards to the overall environment, CIP’s students are friendly, she also appreciates the Buddy student system the school upholds.
Kimberly, 40 y/o Korean and a mother of two children whom she took her with in her journey to learning the English language said that CIP is better than other ESL schools because it has many amenities like gardens, sports area including table tennis, billiard hall, and badminton and basketball courts. She likes the fact that she can be with her children through this amazing learning experience. When it comes to her learning progress, she focused her attention on their pronunciation. She appreciates the free pronunciation classes given by the management.
“Social life will never be of shortage in CIP, aside from the friendly students,” says Kimberly. Teachers play a big role in making the students feel right at home.
Teacher Edwin, one of the senior teachers shared his insights about CIP.
The faculty and management work hard to strategize on how to improve teaching management so that we can be at par with international standards. Currently, we started to take on IELTS, TOEFL, TESOL and TOIEC. Faculty members all have degrees and have to pass certain amount of exams before being able to teach.
“Instead of teaching the students what to think, we focus on teaching them how to think”, says Teacher Edwin.
CIP being a formal institution bounds its students with rules and regulations that are upheld at all times. Students have contracts that state the school rules and their obligations as students.
We never second guess when it comes to safety and security, the school is well secured and curfew is given to everyone. Likewise, parents are actively involved and encouraged to be part in the junior student’s education, monthly reports on student’s learning progress are given to them and a copy to their parents for close monitoring. Students receive as much individual attention as possible through Buddy Student-Teacher System.
Buddy Student-Teacher System was launched by the school so that each student will be monitored closely by a buddy teacher. A buddy teacher recommends books that are at the same level with their buddy students, issues pertaining to the academics are also being addressed to them.
CIP continues to thrive because of its willingness to adapt to students needs. The management always makes sure that the student will only get the best in English teaching.
Aside from free pronunciation classes, CIP also has different clinics for students to be a part of, like Grammar and Writing clinic. Writing clinic will be held for two consecutive Saturdays in the month of March, which is also free of charge. Other contests to boost students self-esteem such as pronunciation, essay writing and monthly vocabulary building test are a few of the common practices of the school.
CIP is not just a school but a home to foreigners who seek to be an excellent speaker. It’s friendly atmosphere accompanied by a steadfast management and dedicated teachers willing to give their best to make sure every student who comes in here comes out to be better in the English language.
