Why is it best to learn English in the Philippines?

TalkShop English eduactionIt is a quite common notion that if you want to opt for the best quality in English education, you’d have to learn it from a native speaker. And of course there’s a lot of merit in it, but contrary to popular belief, it’s not the only way to do it. For years the Philippines has maintained a reputation for being one of the most English-fluent countries in Asia, and the English language scene is more vivid today than ever. International businesses have decided to invest in Filipino manpower to do jobs that range from call handling and web programming, all the way to investment and banking.

The question is, if these multinational companies can see a good return on their investment by choosing the Philippines, why not stack the cards in your favor and choose the country to learn English too? TalkShop, the country’s leading communication training center understands that whether you’re working for a promotion, dreaming to study overseas, or simply planning to add a new skill for personal development, the best place to study English is in the Philippines. It only takes a sweeping glance, so to speak, to discern good reasons behind the claim. Here are some of them:

English is everywhere in the Philippines. English is the second language in the country, and it definitely shows. You can find it practically everywhere – in banks, schools, office buildings, street signs, bookstores, movie theaters, restaurants. It’s also a sure bet that almost every Filipino you’ll encounter will have at least conversational level English, certainly more than enough to give directions or point you to someone who can help solve a general dilemma.

The people are friendly. It’s not an exaggeration: Filipinos are really one of the friendliest people you’ll ever come across. You can feel it in the delightful smiles, in the warm atmosphere, even from strangers. Now, imagine having such a teacher who’s genuinely concerned to help you learn English, one who’d be patient and encouraging because he knows what it means to study a new language. Wouldn’t that be great?

The country has diverse culture and landscape. Of course you want to study, but it’s safe to assume that it won’t be all that you’re going to do. Every now and then it’s nice to take a breather, and in the Philippines you’ll have more than a fair share of welcome detours. From stunningly pristine beaches and well-preserved natural parks, to an array of shopping malls and flea markets, you’re bound to be happily occupied.

TalkShop, as the pioneer in Integrated Language Teaching (ILT), has become the choice of many professionals and students because it is an institute that believes how learning English is a lot more than getting a passing mark in a proficiency exam. Learning English is about experiences and fun and insights and relationships. It’s about discovering more about yourself and taking delight in the knowledge of others. So, are you ready to make one of the best decisions of your life? Study English in the Philippines and embark on a learning adventure you’ll never forget. Call TalkShop today (632) 894 5588.
