MAY 2011 NEWSLETTER
The much awaited CIP Seafood and Barbecue Party has finally come to an end. Nevertheless, students and teachers who came to witness the event all agree that it is one of the highlights of their stay in CIP.
Grilled food and delicious dishes were served and, as students and teachers enjoyed their meal, they were serenaded by the Guitar Club. They never failed to amaze the crowd though. Everyone cheered as they strum their guitars and sang songs. Students were all eager to participate in games and some even had a dance number. CIP believes that engaging students in social activities like this is one of the many ways to learn English and make their stay a memorable and enjoyable experience.
CIP is an institution that prides itself with dedicated and passionate teachers. This month we feature two new native teachers who come from different fields of expertise. Mike Maxwell, or you can call him Max, comes all the way from the USA. He has a degree in Management, Network Administration, and History.
“My teaching style is more that of a facilitator – to bring out what a student is capable of and helping him or her to polish their English skills.”
Max strives hard to make sure that his students come out of the classroom with confidence and knowledge in speaking the English language. He currently teaches Speaking and Listening.
“I walk and read daily to exercise my body and mind but I must admit a great fondness for computer games. I also know my way around the kitchen and make killer cheesecakes.”
Rainforest dormitory 2, located within the CIP campus, opened last May 14, 2011. The building features spacious, air-conditioned rooms equipped with the basic necessities of daily living. All rooms are well furnished with chairs, desk, individual wardrobes and bookshelves. The CIP management works hard to ensure that students get a comfortable, safe, and secure living environment that facilitates the learning process.
