July 2019 Red Cross Bloodletting Program

After three months, the Philippine Red Cross Baguio Chapter is back in Monol for another bloodletting program. The previous blood donation campaign happened last March 2019 with a total of 14 blood donors. This time, with mostly new students, a total of 18 people donated blood during the two-day program. 

My Teachers in Monol

I feel that in this language environment, no matter what teaching method you choose, there will always be progress. This is because you HAVE to speak English. Other language teachers don’t understand that.

Great Speaking Practice with One-on-one Listening Class

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.

Beginning Your English Journey through General ESL

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.

3+1 Activity: Game Night

With the arrival of new students, it was time for the 3+1 teachers and students to get to know each other. As an ice breaker for all the shy, still-adjusting newcomers, a little game night was scheduled for everyone to enjoy.

Food Adventure Outside of Monol Academy

Most of the time, students enjoy the meals cooked in Monol but if you want to explore and hang-out with friends on the weekends, you can choose to eat outside of the school. This is also a great way to relieve stress since you’re working hard studying English in a foreign country.
