Welcome, International Students and Language School Agents

Though the majority of our students are Filipino professionals who speak intermediate to advanced English, our school is truly international. Our international students prefer to study at our school because their classmates are Filipinos who already speak good to great English. As a result, before class, after class, throughout the day, and in different extracurricular activities, our international students are constantly speaking English. Some of our students even say that their classmates are like teachers!  In fact, you can read about how the Philippines ranks #1 in Business English

We have students and clients from all over the world:

Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Croatia, Dubai, Egypt, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Laos, Libya, Mexico, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Poland, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Taiwan, Tajikistan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, United States of America, Venezuela, Vietnam, Yemen, and of course…the Philippines – Most of our students are Filipinos who speak good to excellent English. If you want to speak better and faster, we encourage you to find a school whose students already speak English so that you can maximize your time and money!
