It is the first time in 16 years that I will not be spending the Spring Festival with my family. I originally planned to go to the Philippines with two other people. However, due to Visa issues, I embarked on my first trip to another country by myself. After some setbacks, I came to study in Monol for most of my vacation.
From my point of view, if you are planning on studying the English language course for the short term (about 1-4 months) in the Philippines, then I would recommend Monol International Education Institute.
I think it was a meaningful and worthwhile experience. I had three months to experience many different things, but the most important is that my English skills have improved. I will talk about some tips and how I felt while studying in Monol.
Although the 3+1 dormitory is a little more expensive than the room for three, there are many benefits and activities that are exclusive to 3+1 rooms. With this, I feel satisfied with my experience.
I spent five months in Monol language school where I studied General ESL for a month and then enrolled in the IELTS course for the following four months. When I first came here, I could not even go to a restaurant because my English was so bad.
One of the biggest changes in me over the past three months is that I no longer feel burdened when using and speaking English. I can express my thoughts in English. Sure, it is far from being very fluent but that is already a big change for me.
If you are a MONOL student that wants to work in a foreign company or overseas, I highly recommend taking up the courses in the school’s Business English program.
I would like to explain what happens in listening class. I’m currently enrolled in the Regular speaking ESL program. We have three hours of one-on-one classes and four hours of group classes. For our listening class, it is a one-on-one class that lasts for two hours.
In this issue, there are 53 new students! They are from various places such as China, Taiwan, South Korean, Japan, and Vietnam. Six of them are from South Korea! Because of the diverse age range, I can have schoolmates that are between 5-50 years old! There really is no end to learning and you can learn regardless of age. I am very curious as to how the children learn.
