I learned more than what I expected to learn in a short span of time, such as becoming more independent, dynamic, and assertiveness.  Ultimately, I have learned that result is more valuable than effort.  What I liked about AIEP, other than learning English, is the whole experience: the people, the diversity, and seeing the progress of other students.

I’ve learned how to deal with every situation, especially when it comes to problem solving and talking to foreigners from different countries. I was able to learn their culture and become friends with them. What I liked the most being at AIEP is that I was able to express what I felt and what I wanted. People are always there to help you whenever you need help.

There are so many things I’ve learned as a student first and then as an employee of the American Institute for English Proficiency.  I went from being unemployed in my province to working as a marketing manager in Makati.  I’ve learned to manage others in addition to developing my confidence and English skills.

I’ve learned how to be tough enough to deal with different persons in professional ways with the help of AIEP.  What I’ve liked the most being at AIEP is I found my true self and able to express what I want to say without hesitating because I know we are all professionals here.

English is a global language. In every country worldwide, it is guaranteed that we will always find someone who can speak English, making communication so much easier.

Speaking English versus Speaking English WELL

The Difference Between Speaking English and Speaking English Well. Speaking English versus doing it well are two different things. The first one may just allow you to converse or just get by, but the the latter, in terms of doing it well, involves professionalism and effective communication.

Activating the “Ellen Adarna” in You

I just love how Ellen Adarna spreads women empowerment vibes through her IG videos wherein she answers questions from her fans about cheating ex-boyfriends and loving one's self.  Her IG videos have been trending on social media lately. In her videos, she wittingly tells us that she doesn't do drama when she finds out...
