I’ll talk about my impressions of SMEAG Global Education language school in the Philippines. It’s the subjective opinion of man who decided to change his life on the eve of his 40 birthday. I didn’t have a long time experience of learning the language or any speaking skills. Just had minimum listening skills, which I got watching English language channels on Youtube, and minimum reading skills, as I dealt with technical documentation in English before. I think my vocabulary consists of estimately 2-3 thousand words. But as I haven’t practiced the speaking skills, the active vocabulary is rather small. A girl with a SMEAG sign meets you at Mactan-Cebu airport and organizes the transfer to a needed campus. I chose a pre-IELTS course in the Classic campus. But upon arrival it turned out I would be staying in Sparta and following its rules and schedules, and studying in Classic because of lack of space there. I’d like to warn you, if you choose SMEAG Sparta as your destination point in the Grab taxi app while getting back to your Campus from the city, the driver might take you to NEW Sparta, located in the middle of Classic and Sparta. So choose SMEAG Classic instead and you won’t be mistaken. On arrival I was given a room key and a EMoney card, which I could use in the nearby canteens (small shops with snacks, instant noodles, stationery, etc.) and in the coffee-shop (where you can buy tea, coffee and other drinks). I had an accident once when I tried to order hot coffee. There were both hot and iced coffee on the menu, I ordered a hot one but got it cold. Turned out I made a mistake, pronounced H-O-T like C-O-L-D, so they thought I wanted it like that. They made me another one. You can use free Wi-Fi and Internet only on the first floor of Classic and the first two floors of Sparta. The access speed isn’t fast. There are lots of access points and one password for everyone (you can see it in the areas with Internet connection). But the connection is poor and the best speed is at night. Let me tell a word about leisure activities on Campus. There is a GYM, where I only tried a running machine. There is a volleyball court with a net, a small basketball court with one basket. There are always people training there, so it won’t be hard to find someone to keep you company. There is a billiard table on the first floor of Sparta. I was disappointed when couldn’t find table tennis, perhaps it was in Capital. When you arrive, you are given a paper bag with a roll of toilet paper, a packet of instant noodles, a drink and a local Globe SIM card. You need to buy a scratch card in the nearby canteen to activate and recharge the balance, but only for cash. I wasn’t able to buy it on the first day because I’d already made a deposit to EMoney card and the main office was closed. So I had to wait for one day. If you have a chance to take a pin to extract your SIM card from the slot, take it. Not every pin is okay and I had to make an effort to find one. The balance is recharged via the service menu, press *143 # (2. My Account-> 3. Load call card-> Enter 10-digit call card number). Then you activate your account sending a message to 8080. I chose 8Gb for 30 days, so I had to dial GoSURF999. If you need some help, you can everyone including the guards. People are friendly and willing to help. In case they don’t know how to help you, they will ask someone who knows. Russian speaking students will help you as well, unless they know how to help you. Every Monday there is an orientation for new students, for everyone else is an ordinary day. You get a lot of information on that day. First of all, you have to do a placement test, and you’ll be suggested a study group based on its results. I chose pre-IELTS, but was suggested IELTS 5.5. But I had to pay 100 dollars in peso to change the course. You need peso almost all the time, dollars are never accepted. While you pass the test, you passport will be collected. Don’t worry about its absence, you won’t experience any problems while you will be staying there and you’ll be given your passport back 1-2 days prior to your departure. Also you’ll be assigned a SA (student assistant), who will visit you 2 times a week between classes and ask whether everything is okay and then collect your signature. Manager Anna will explain you a lot of organizational moments in Russian (like visit hours, free time, Campus rules and a system of warnings). In the afternoon she will take you to Ayala Mall, show you the reliable ATM, and a currency exchange as you need peso. Then you can have a walk in the city till the end of the day and come back by foot or by taxi. The taxi will cost you around 80-100 peso, but it’s just a 15-20 min walk around 1 mile. I think it’s not far. The only thing is that it gets dark at 6 pm like it is 10:00-11:00 pm in Chuvashia. Plus there are almost no sidewalks and you have to walk on the roadway. The traffic is very aggressive. On your way from the airport and to Ayala Mall note how everyone is honking and trying to fit into lane gaps, especially people on motorcycles. On first days it’s better to collect 2-4 people and go out to the city. It’s safer and makes the taxi ride cheaper. There are beggers on the streets, but only few. I tried to ignore them and only smiled and kept going. Don’t get angry, they are harmless. You can always speed up and leave them behind. Walking in shorts at the temperature of 30* degrees you’ll realize that not only your skin color and height are differs from what the locals have, but also the style is different. By the way, you can use google panorama to have a walk in Cebu to get known with the city. Let’s get back on Campus. On Tuesday you’ll have a meeting with your SA, who will show you the classrooms location from your personal schedule and explain everything in English. Your classes will be in English, and you’ll have to talk to your teachers, main office workers and other staff in English, too (except the manager from Russia). The first rule is not to be afraid to make mistakes, you will hardly surprise anyone and be the person with the biggest amount of them in your speech. You will most likely be understood. No one will correct you, you will be carefully listened to, perhaps you will be asked to say the information using another words.You can skip the articles, mix the verb tenses and put the words in wrong word order. No one will blame you for that! It’s better to buy student books. They cost 350-450 peso each for the course IELTS 5.5. I had to buy 4 of them, around 2 kilos each. You can buy them in the main office of Classic and use your EMoney card to pay....

It has been a while since I came back and finally started writing this feedback. Of course, there are far less emotions now and the impression has died down. But I want to mention that the school is wonderful, the teachers there are incredible. Once I didn’t like one of the teachers, so the next morning there was a replacement. The lessons are thoughtfully planned and you don’t get tired of studying for a long periods of time. I was attending all the lessons. I had the best teachers, I enjoyed the additional class with Roger, and speaking class with Unis. If you ever attend their classes you will be lucky. The most ineffective lesson was evening Sparta, where we usually did our homework. I’d like to thank the Russian manager Anna, who constantly was in school. I could praise her work for a long time. She is attentive to detail and helpful, she asks questions like “how do you feel” and “how was your day”. She is very humane. Unfortunately, I would like to mention some bad moments as well. The first thing is that there were cockroaches size of your fingers. And it only amused me. We had small lizards in the bedroom instead. The second thing is food. It was an immense pain, as I’ve never eaten anything more disgusting in my life. I was suffering a lot, I lost a lot of weight and my stomach just recently started to recover. But, friends, each case is personal. Guys will always find something to eat, or will just buy instant noodles. A lot of students had rice and sausages for breakfast, I am not used to this kind of food, I ate fried eggs and some fruit or vegetable. But I’ve had enough of eggs after a week. There was also a choice of milk and cereal. But I won’t advise trying Asian milk products, they have synthetic taste. Lunch and dinner were all the same: rice (which I can’t stand now) and some kind of meat one can hardly chew. So, if someone is planning the trip here, you’d better plan your meals. Take snacks, instant oatmeal, nuts, dried fruit. That’s all for food. And now it’s time for the most important part. It’s true that you have to pay for water and electricity, but you can get a 30% reduction on your payment if you leave the feedback. I didn’t know about it. Also you deposit 3000 peso and get this sum back on the last day. Luckily I was staying for two more days and had the opportunity to spend it, otherwise it’s not convenient. Also you have to pay around 600-800 peso for student books, what is strange for me, as they were included in the bill, that’s a small sum anyway. Dear Linguatrip, a lot of children come alone (even 10 year olds) and their parents might not know about these expenses and give the child money just for excursions or souvenirs. They might be uncertain what amount is enough. If I had a child, I would have such doubts. So please mention that on your website. And now the epilogue, and it’s about managers of Linguatrip. It’s a mystery what their duties are. Also they give horrible consultations. They couldn’t answer my questions about Philippines, gave me wrong information about the island and its size. The manager made it clear that one could go around the whole island in two hours, turned out the distance was several times bigger. I had to book a new hotel immediately, because the one that I’d booked before was 3 hours away. But that’s okay in comparison with the next one. My question whether it was true that I would have to pay a tax of 850 peso in the airport was answered in the negative. Later it turned out to be true. From that I conclude, that all the manager can do is to send the schedule for the first day. By the way, my manager did not make any effort to email me the right information, and I got brochure about Great Britain instead. I almost fainted when learned about the necessity of getting British visa, but then I realized the information was irrelevant. From now on I will never book via Linguatrip. Full service is not provided, managers don’t like their jobs. I heard the worse stories about them and how their mistakes influence the students. But anyway you should come to this school, you’ll learn a lot there. Unless your level is up to intermediate. If so, welcome, you’ll be practicing your English all the time. ...

English for my work in a short time. I had spoken well, but I hadn't used it for more than 10 years and as a result it had started 'going away'. I looked for a school for a long time in terms of 'Prise - Quality'. Also, I decided to take my 9-years-old daughter with me. The school offered us The Family program. It's a really interesting variant if you want to study yourself and if you want (cerntainly, yours) your child to start speaking in English (I mean to speak, to comminucate with outher children and adults from all over the world). The school is international: there were Koreans, Vietnamese, Chinese (while I was there, there was a small number of them), Arabs and Russians (there was a camp organised for Russian children. They always walked with a face full of joy). Let me tell you somthing about about The Family program. We studied with Cambridge English. More about the program for adults. Our study began at 7 a.m. The first lesson was ‘Morning Sparta’ (we learnt new grammar, improved vocabulary), but The Family program lets you omit it. Then we had breakfast, the main classes started at 9. My schedule consisted of the following: the first class (there were two classes for 45 min.) where a teacher and 4 students discussing a topic + vocabulary for it. The second class is a one-to-one class with a teacher (listening, grammar, speaking). Then we had lunch. The third class is one-to-one, too (reading and speaking + grammar). There were some optional classes then, but I attended them too because I liked it (there were discussions of some topics, work in pairs, vocabulary improvement). Then we had dinner and 'Evening Sparta'. Classes finished at 8.55 p.m. In general, my study was from 9 till 9 with breaks for a breakfast, lunch and dinner. As a result: full immersion into the language environment, but without optional classes you can finish at 3 p.m. You can go to the massage or go shopping. I studied the whole day. I had an aim to increase my English level. Now some words about the children program. My daughter studied from 9 till 8:55 (with optional classes) as well: 2 classes (one-to-one), 1 class - a teacher and 4 children + evening classes. There were entertaining activities: waterpark (2 times a week), golf, culinary class, singing, cartoons in English. At the beginning of the study I thought she wouldn't be able to handle such loads. I was surprised she was enjoyed the process so much that we could have no meetings during the breaks. She started speaking in English! She made international friends. I think it's awesome. I'd like to esepcially mark the quality of education - I can't tell about all the teacher there, there are more than 100 teacher at school. But I liked my teachers. The level of their language skills is high, they are always friendly and understanding. Be prepared for additional expenses. In the beginning you should pay 6500 peso for a person, 3000 as a deposit, for books (we payed 2600 peso (for daughter's and mine), you need to pay ofr elecrticity and water (I paied 200 peso for a person a week). Some words about accomodation conditions and about food. We stayed at the campus Sparta. Our conditions weren't luxurious. But there were everything we needed. Advice: take towels, the school doesn't provide you with them. You can buy all hygiene items in the campus shop or in the shopping centers, there are some of them nearby. The school has a coffeeshop and a small shop whee my daughter bought an ice-cream, chocolates and candied fruit. Food is plain, usual here without a big diversity. But I wasn't hungry there. And about the results. In 2 weeks I improved my English level for 1 grade. I think it's a good achievement. My conclusion: if you want to have a real study, you need to come here, but relaxation and other entertainment is only on weekends. I'm satisfied with the quality and how they teach people. I think I'll come here again. I'd like to say Thank you to the Russian manager Anna. She works really well, she can slways help you, answer any questions, support you and she's sincerely happy with student's achievements. Anna told and showed us everything in the first days and she supported us all trip long with a smile and a desire to help us. I am very grateful. ...

I want to share my impressions of the language course in SMEAG. All four weeks that I spent here, I enjoyed every minute of my stay. For a month I noticeably improved my level of English, with teachers who not only gave knowledge but did it so the process of learning was not at least boring. Each teacher tries to contribute something to his lesson, which makes his lesson unique. Due to this, despite the density of the schedule (classes begin at 6:40 am and end at 8:35 pm with lunch breaks, breakfast and dinner) classes flew by unnoticed. Also, on weekends SMEAG provides an opportunity to visit various excursions. During the time spent in SMEAG, I visited Bohol (island with the smallest monkeys in the world), the islands of Olango and Nulasan, I also managed to swim with sharks in Oslob. Excursions usually took up the whole day. In addition to these and other weekend excursions, for EOC participants (English Only Challenge), on Friday's school organizes various activities and excursions around Cebu. EOC is an event at Capital Campus aimed at improving conversational skills. The campus has special zones in which the EOC’s participant should communicate only in English, and also EOC members should dine in a certain area where they take part in activities aimed at improving conversational skills during lunch breaks. In general, the school left a pleasant impression....

I would like to share my experience of studying at Smeag Global Education. It was one of the most memorable moments in my life. The process of education was really interesting, funny and useful. Teachers and office staff were very supportive and understanding in any situation. enjoy staying in Smeag Global Education. It was a really unforgettable experience. I learned lots of new information. The lessons were very interesting, useful and were held in an interactive live manner. The teachers were educative, smiling and they helped me a lot to improve my speaking skills. The Russian manager was really supportive and she provided support in all. Our day started from 6:40 until 20:35, but all classes were very interesting, so we were just a bit tired. I would like to recommend this school to everyone who really wants to improve English especially speaking skills. The school also provides really interesting excursions. I went to Olango island. Snorkeling, tasty food and swimming in the pool, it was really enjoyable. I also have been to Bohol island, Moalboal and Oslob. Bohol island is a very beautiful place with an excellent beach. We went to Chocolate Hills, it is a very picturesque place. After that, we saw a really interesting kind of monkey “Tarsier”. But the most exciting part of our trip was Zip Line. In Moalboal we tried an island hopping, we swam with fishes, turtles, and sardines rushing. Then we went to Kawasan Falls and jumped from an edge of 10 meters. It was really amazing. In Oslob, we swam with whale sharks. It was really nice. So, I highly recommend to go to the Philippines and choose Smeag Global Education, because I am sure it will be one of your unforgettable experience in your life....

I stayed at this awesome school for 3 months and for me the time flew so fast. During my course, I improved my English level, a huge thanks to one-on-one lessons that are individual with each student, so it's just you and the teacher in the class - it's very comfortable. All of the teachers are polite and always ready to help if you have any troubles. At school, students are fed well, and the food is really nourishing. On the weekends and in the evenings, you can go to the city, which has lots of beautiful places to visit. Generally, I got pleased with this school, and I recommend it to everyone!...

This review is for those people who try to explore the market of language schools and choose among already attracted schools, and maybe even countries. If fate leads you to learn English in Philippines, then be thankful to your fate, and start the whole process as soon as possible (the process of it is very easy). Now, let me tell you about my experience at SMEAG school. Firstly, if your course takes place on a Capital campus, so try to do everything to live in that place. In my opinion, it’s the most comfortable campus with its coffee shop and late curfew. It was such a huge pleasure to study there, so I never looked at the time, thinking “when is a break”. Also, it’s still a mystery to me, how to do properly schedule and the structure of the course that you almost do not get tired even in the evening. Going forward, lessons start at 6:40 and end at 20:35 (some of the classes are optional, some of them are obligatory for attending. You will get to know the rules when you come here. Monday is an introductory day - the school team will tell you about everything you need to know, and show you the school and its facilities. Also they will help you get to the shopping center and lead you to the best place for exchanging money). Honestly, every day I enjoyed both studying and living on campus in general. I spent 2 weeks over there, and for that time I improved my speaking skills - even if you don’t want to speak English, you will have to do that anyway all the time(and in the evening you will even think in English). So if you have been waiting for arguments for or against it, then it’s worth it! The experience you get is really awesome....

"Hello everyone! The SMEAG school is the most amazing place for both studying and chilling! You need to be prepared for and you need to have: - During the week you won’r have time to do anything at all! And that’s great! You’ll have a lot of lessons and homework during the day) It’s really cool that there are a lot of bars and restaurans for you in case of tiredness. You can find and buy local beer in every corner) - There are a loot of people and you need to be communicative. Everyone is different and interesting. Someone is coming and someone is leaving every week. It’s the real life of the student which I’ve already forgotten because of work in the past ten years)) By the way, don’t get upset your English is too good or too bad. It’s okay. Everyone is here to study. You’ll be able to find 20-50-70 people with whom you can speak in the sign language. And an advice from me: try to avoid speaking with people from your country)) It’s good of course but you came here to practice. 80 % of the students make this mistake. - The food is deeeelicious, meals are huge. 3 times a day is more than enough for my 30 year old body) BUT be prepared that food will seem to you very boring and the same by the end of the month. I liked that but many girls hated it. - Bring with yourself many medicine stuff… plasters, activated charcoal, koldreks, antibiotics, something from allergies, then antiseptics and all sorts of everyday household stuff - Philippines is a specific country so be prepared for a lot of different emotinons, I’m talking about atmosphere and everything around in the city. But seriously, the school is incredible, staff and teacher are great! There are a lot of star students who is amazing during the lessons, for example Jaferson, Benny or Ely and a lot of others. You can and should study here. In the evening there are a lot of places for chatting, sports and practice. Don’t forget about basketball court!! We played great games a couple of times! I wrote it from my heart!! Good luck in your studies! See you!!...

We all experience good and bad moments in our lives, but even bad things have a bright side. Two months ago, I have decided to study abroad, and due to the price, nice location, the amount of study hours and all the above comments, SMEAG school in the Philippines was the best option to choose. I have booked an ESL course in that school. Here are some things to know before you decide to book a course there. The following points are based on my own experience, some might find them not true for their experience, some students like their teachers and some did not like their teachers at all. First of all, I will explore good things and then things I was not satisfied with. - I enjoyed school activities. Every weekend SMEAG organizes trips to different and famous places providing with transportation, food, equipment and guidance. That is the time when you can forget all the books you were going through the whole week and just relax swimming, doing a snorkeling or scuba-diving, watching beautiful landscapes, eating delicious food and of course chatting with your new buddies from different parts of Asia. Swimming with whale sharks is a “must visit“ place. - The “three times a day” meal is delicious. I can say it was tasty, healthy, nutritious and you have a lot of it. - All teachers and administration staff are friendly, polite and ready to help if you have any questions. - Laundry was easy to use and clothes after getting them back they were folded nicely and smelled great. - The best thing you can get from studying in campuses are new friends. You meet a lot of new people from different countries (85% Asian countries). I have made a lot of new friends there, have learnt about their culture and customs. People are so different all over the world, and in order to know something new about them and their traditions we have to study English. The saddest part was when you had to say you farewells to friends, but do not forget to set an appointment with them somewhere in the world. - On the “Lingua Trip” site it says, ESL course is for all different levels of students (from beginner to advanced). Unfortunately, the information is incorrect. SMEAG school doesn’t have advanced level and can hardly provide upper-intermediate. So, I had to change the course to TOEFL. - Most of the TOEFL classes are boring, and not as productive as you want them to be. Of course, studying is boring sometimes, but here it is boring because of the structure of the class, where you mostly go from test to test answering given questions (1 out of 10 different classes was good because of the structure of the class). - The explanations teachers give on your questions about the test (reading and listening) are not proper (after getting the explanation I still was not sure why that answer was correct) and you have to find out yourself why that answer is correct and yours not, which is actually good, because you learn way more digging back into the text again and again. I could do it at home though, and pay nothing for this. - Filipinos are non-native English speakers, neither are the teachers!!! So, if you decide to choose this school, be ready for the accent they speak with, mispronunciations, and moreover lack of vocabulary. In conclusion, I would like to add that having 3 weeks course in SMEAG was a good experience for me, even though not all my desires were met. It will be a great experience for learners with the basic level of English to dive into the English atmosphere. All the signs in the city and in the campus are in English. All people in Cebu speak English and they will always help you with your questions if you get lost or trying to find a way to the place you want to go. ...

In general, the school left a good impression and a lot of positive emotions. In the begining it was a little bit strange, cause guys and girls are living on different floors, and its forbidden to come on the floor of each other, otherwise its immediate expulsion, also curfew from 11 pm to 5 am, it's a bit weird after many years of independent life. But rules are rules, we came here for knowledges, so all of this is not that important. About study i have no complaints, moreover I was lovely surprised that many lessons are held with the teacher "one on one", which excludes any form of laziness. On the TOEFL preparation course, there were 2 lessons of personal training with the teacher and 2 lessons in groups of 4 students, what slightly brightened up the learning process by small group discussions. In addition, there is a morning and evening sparta, but it was obligatory to visit only for students who came for 1 month and longer, so I have never gone there. Also I liked the weekly TOEFL tests in the same classrooms where the official exam is taking place. Except of this lessons, it was one free class, in my case it was watching a movie, after which the teacher asked me a few questions. At the expense of food, i can not say it was so bad, but also not that perfect, so usually we gone to some closest food courts. I had extra comfort room , so i lived in a single room but with a shared bathroom. Room has all the necessary facilities, furniture and air condition. Eventually based on my experience, if your goal is to pass TOEFL, then the school has everything you need for this, but you need to choose the right term of staying relatively to your level and the desired result. In my case it was a trial trip with the combination of training and vacation in another country, for two weeks we visited several places in Cebu, and according to the results of the TOEFL exam tests the result increased from 48 points to 89. Dare friends and do not be afraid, result will not take long to wait....

"Hello everyone! I want to share my feelings of learning English in SMEAG School. To begin with, I would like to tell that I had to write to the hotline of Linguatrip all the time. I hadn’t been met at the airport. I went with my luggage from Domestic flight aside the International Flights hoping to see a nameplate. All in all, I had to take a taxi and go to the school which was noted in the invitation. But it turned out that I had to live in another campus. So I had to have a little tour from the airport to the campus, from one campus to another. After passing my English-level test, I was instructed by the manager in Cebu about the rules of living in the campus and studying at school. As for study, I chose the ESL course. It included Reading & Writing, Listening & Speaking, Discussion and Morning & Evening Sparta. In Sparta we watched the news and TV-show «Friends». The course was interesting, but I didn’t like a constant changing of teachers, their accent and unnecessary questions. However, the school is very convenient. There was a canteen, a cafe, a laundry, a classroom, a gym and even a small store. The school organized the process very well, everything was thought-out, students felt very comfortable. The school staff was very friendly and responsive. Leisure activities in the Philippines was great. You should visit this country to understand the magnificence of nature. Yours respectfully, Zamira...

I came to SMEAG school for 3 weeks. I lived and studied on the Capitol campus. Today is my last day in this wonderful place and I would like to share my impressions. First of all, I really liked the organization of the educational process. Classes began at 6:40 am and ended at 8:30, but it was so interesting. I also had a huge number of friends from different countries, with whom we communicated only in English. All the guys here are very friendly and cheerful. On weekends, the school usually arranges different trips to the islands, where you can go shopping, sunbathe and just have a good time. In general, in SMEAG, did not give a change to be bored. Also, there is a wonderful Russian manager Anna, she always helped me with any questions and difficulties. In general, even for such a short time, I brushed up English well, especially the spoken language. So I'm happy to recommend visiting this wonderful school for everyone who wants to learn English! Guys, come to SMEAG, you will be delighted!...

Good Afternoon! My name is Ivan. I am 21 years old, I am from Russia. I am student of Medical University in Voronezh city.I am interested in sport, especially football and volleyball. Also I like to make friends all around world. I came to the Philippines as for studying English Language which is very important nowadays as for travelling either. Philippines is exotic country with interesting history and unique culture. English is an official language here. Everyone speaks English fluently. Moreover, studying in the Philippines is rather cheaper comparing with other countries, However, level of education is really high. I chose SMEAG Global Education English as training ground in learning English due to the friends’ recommendations. They have already been here and were satisfied with everything. During my studying in SMEAG I travelled a lot : discovered beautiful islands , swam with whale sharks, had experience with snorkeling safari. It was amazing! Cebu city is really nice! Here is a lot of sights and huge shopping malls , for example Ayala mall, J center mall, SM mall and so on…So, I did shopping here, watched movies in the Cinema, visited water park, hang out with my friends in night clubs and restaurants. I really like SMEAG Global Education due to the high level of teaching, English, All teachers are professionals , they explain materials easy and well. Japanese chef cooks very delicious food. All Staff in school is friendly and polite. Everyone supports with any dilemmas. SMEAG gives unique opportunity to make friends from different countries like Japan, China, KOREA, TAIWAN, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Russia as well. Nowadays English is most important language in the world because its international language. People in many countries speaks English like in Great Britain, New Zealand, Australia, the USA, Canada and so on, I would like to speak English well for travelling and business purposes either I will recommend SMEAG to my friends and relatives, as school with high level of teaching English. I really enjoyed during my studying in this school and I am satisfied with everything!...

Hello friends, I would like to share with you the experience of studying on the campus of Sparta. I studied here for 3 months. This is awesome experience in my life.

This is my daily routine: 6:40 - 8:00 - the first lesson this is a class for learning words and idioms (very well helps to expand your vocabulary). 8:00 - 8:40 - Breakfast, I shall write separately about food later 8:40 - 10:25 - class 4: 1, 4 students and one teacher. In my class were students from Korea, China and Taiwan, here we just talk and had dialogues about different topics. 10:35 - 12:00 - class reading and writing, this is a one-on-one class with a teacher, basically a grammar. 12:00 - 13:00 - lunch 13:00 - 14.35 - speaking and listing class, one-on-one with the teacher. 14.45 - 16.20 - elective class, this is an interactive game, fun and relax.

And most importantly for me, in what you should pay attention when you talking in English, etc. And so every day happened plus homework. If you want really intense. Welcome to Sparta! It's really a very positive atmosphere, it helps a lot, everyone gets to know each other, everyone tries to communicate, teachers are a separate topic, they are like animators, every lesson is a funny and useful show. ...

I’ll talk about my impressions of SMEAG Global Education language school in the Philippines. It’s the subjective opinion of man who decided to change his life on the eve of his 40 birthday. I didn’t have a long time experience of learning the language or any speaking skills. Just had minimum listening skills, which I got watching English language channels on Youtube, and minimum reading skills, as I dealt with technical documentation in English before. I think my vocabulary consists of estimately 2-3 thousand words. But as I haven’t practiced the speaking skills, the active vocabulary is rather small. A girl with a SMEAG sign meets you at Mactan-Cebu airport and organizes the transfer to a needed campus. I chose a pre-IELTS course in the Classic campus. But upon arrival it turned out I would be staying in Sparta and following its rules and schedules, and studying in Classic because of lack of space there. I’d like to warn you, if you choose SMEAG Sparta as your destination point in the Grab taxi app while getting back to your Campus from the city, the driver might take you to NEW Sparta, located in the middle of Classic and Sparta. So choose SMEAG Classic instead and you won’t be mistaken. On arrival I was given a room key and a EMoney card, which I could use in the nearby canteens (small shops with snacks, instant noodles, stationery, etc.) and in the coffee-shop (where you can buy tea, coffee and other drinks). I had an accident once when I tried to order hot coffee. There were both hot and iced coffee on the menu, I ordered a hot one but got it cold. Turned out I made a mistake, pronounced H-O-T like C-O-L-D, so they thought I wanted it like that. They made me another one. You can use free Wi-Fi and Internet only on the first floor of Classic and the first two floors of Sparta. The access speed isn’t fast. There are lots of access points and one password for everyone (you can see it in the areas with Internet connection). But the connection is poor and the best speed is at night. Let me tell a word about leisure activities on Campus. There is a GYM, where I only tried a running machine. There is a volleyball court with a net, a small basketball court with one basket. There are always people training there, so it won’t be hard to find someone to keep you company. There is a billiard table on the first floor of Sparta. I was disappointed when couldn’t find table tennis, perhaps it was in Capital. When you arrive, you are given a paper bag with a roll of toilet paper, a packet of instant noodles, a drink and a local Globe SIM card. You need to buy a scratch card in the nearby canteen to activate and recharge the balance, but only for cash. I wasn’t able to buy it on the first day because I’d already made a deposit to EMoney card and the main office was closed. So I had to wait for one day. If you have a chance to take a pin to extract your SIM card from the slot, take it. Not every pin is okay and I had to make an effort to find one. The balance is recharged via the service menu, press *143 # (2. My Account-> 3. Load call card-> Enter 10-digit call card number). Then you activate your account sending a message to 8080. I chose 8Gb for 30 days, so I had to dial GoSURF999. If you need some help, you can everyone including the guards. People are friendly and willing to help. In case they don’t know how to help you, they will ask someone who knows. Russian speaking students will help you as well, unless they know how to help you. Every Monday there is an orientation for new students, for everyone else is an ordinary day. You get a lot of information on that day. First of all, you have to do a placement test, and you’ll be suggested a study group based on its results. I chose pre-IELTS, but was suggested IELTS 5.5. But I had to pay 100 dollars in peso to change the course. You need peso almost all the time, dollars are never accepted. While you pass the test, you passport will be collected. Don’t worry about its absence, you won’t experience any problems while you will be staying there and you’ll be given your passport back 1-2 days prior to your departure. Also you’ll be assigned a SA (student assistant), who will visit you 2 times a week between classes and ask whether everything is okay and then collect your signature. Manager Anna will explain you a lot of organizational moments in Russian (like visit hours, free time, Campus rules and a system of warnings). In the afternoon she will take you to Ayala Mall, show you the reliable ATM, and a currency exchange as you need peso. Then you can have a walk in the city till the end of the day and come back by foot or by taxi. The taxi will cost you around 80-100 peso, but it’s just a 15-20 min walk around 1 mile. I think it’s not far. The only thing is that it gets dark at 6 pm like it is 10:00-11:00 pm in Chuvashia. Plus there are almost no sidewalks and you have to walk on the roadway. The traffic is very aggressive. On your way from the airport and to Ayala Mall note how everyone is honking and trying to fit into lane gaps, especially people on motorcycles. On first days it’s better to collect 2-4 people and go out to the city. It’s safer and makes the taxi ride cheaper. There are beggers on the streets, but only few. I tried to ignore them and only smiled and kept going. Don’t get angry, they are harmless. You can always speed up and leave them behind. Walking in shorts at the temperature of 30* degrees you’ll realize that not only your skin color and height are differs from what the locals have, but also the style is different. By the way, you can use google panorama to have a walk in Cebu to get known with the city. Let’s get back on Campus. On Tuesday you’ll have a meeting with your SA, who will show you the classrooms location from your personal schedule and explain everything in English. Your classes will be in English, and you’ll have to talk to your teachers, main office workers and other staff in English, too (except the manager from Russia). The first rule is not to be afraid to make mistakes, you will hardly surprise anyone and be the person with the biggest amount of them in your speech. You will most likely be understood. No one will correct you, you will be carefully listened to, perhaps you will be asked to say the information using another words.You can skip the articles, mix the verb tenses and put the words in wrong word order. No one will blame you for that! It’s better to buy student books. They cost 350-450 peso each for the course IELTS 5.5. I had to buy 4 of them, around 2 kilos each. You can buy them in the main office of Classic and use your EMoney card to pay....

It has been a while since I came back and finally started writing this feedback. Of course, there are far less emotions now and the impression has died down. But I want to mention that the school is wonderful, the teachers there are incredible. Once I didn’t like one of the teachers, so the next morning there was a replacement. The lessons are thoughtfully planned and you don’t get tired of studying for a long periods of time. I was attending all the lessons. I had the best teachers, I enjoyed the additional class with Roger, and speaking class with Unis. If you ever attend their classes you will be lucky. The most ineffective lesson was evening Sparta, where we usually did our homework. I’d like to thank the Russian manager Anna, who constantly was in school. I could praise her work for a long time. She is attentive to detail and helpful, she asks questions like “how do you feel” and “how was your day”. She is very humane. Unfortunately, I would like to mention some bad moments as well. The first thing is that there were cockroaches size of your fingers. And it only amused me. We had small lizards in the bedroom instead. The second thing is food. It was an immense pain, as I’ve never eaten anything more disgusting in my life. I was suffering a lot, I lost a lot of weight and my stomach just recently started to recover. But, friends, each case is personal. Guys will always find something to eat, or will just buy instant noodles. A lot of students had rice and sausages for breakfast, I am not used to this kind of food, I ate fried eggs and some fruit or vegetable. But I’ve had enough of eggs after a week. There was also a choice of milk and cereal. But I won’t advise trying Asian milk products, they have synthetic taste. Lunch and dinner were all the same: rice (which I can’t stand now) and some kind of meat one can hardly chew. So, if someone is planning the trip here, you’d better plan your meals. Take snacks, instant oatmeal, nuts, dried fruit. That’s all for food. And now it’s time for the most important part. It’s true that you have to pay for water and electricity, but you can get a 30% reduction on your payment if you leave the feedback. I didn’t know about it. Also you deposit 3000 peso and get this sum back on the last day. Luckily I was staying for two more days and had the opportunity to spend it, otherwise it’s not convenient. Also you have to pay around 600-800 peso for student books, what is strange for me, as they were included in the bill, that’s a small sum anyway. Dear Linguatrip, a lot of children come alone (even 10 year olds) and their parents might not know about these expenses and give the child money just for excursions or souvenirs. They might be uncertain what amount is enough. If I had a child, I would have such doubts. So please mention that on your website. And now the epilogue, and it’s about managers of Linguatrip. It’s a mystery what their duties are. Also they give horrible consultations. They couldn’t answer my questions about Philippines, gave me wrong information about the island and its size. The manager made it clear that one could go around the whole island in two hours, turned out the distance was several times bigger. I had to book a new hotel immediately, because the one that I’d booked before was 3 hours away. But that’s okay in comparison with the next one. My question whether it was true that I would have to pay a tax of 850 peso in the airport was answered in the negative. Later it turned out to be true. From that I conclude, that all the manager can do is to send the schedule for the first day. By the way, my manager did not make any effort to email me the right information, and I got brochure about Great Britain instead. I almost fainted when learned about the necessity of getting British visa, but then I realized the information was irrelevant. From now on I will never book via Linguatrip. Full service is not provided, managers don’t like their jobs. I heard the worse stories about them and how their mistakes influence the students. But anyway you should come to this school, you’ll learn a lot there. Unless your level is up to intermediate. If so, welcome, you’ll be practicing your English all the time. ...

English for my work in a short time. I had spoken well, but I hadn't used it for more than 10 years and as a result it had started 'going away'. I looked for a school for a long time in terms of 'Prise - Quality'. Also, I decided to take my 9-years-old daughter with me. The school offered us The Family program. It's a really interesting variant if you want to study yourself and if you want (cerntainly, yours) your child to start speaking in English (I mean to speak, to comminucate with outher children and adults from all over the world). The school is international: there were Koreans, Vietnamese, Chinese (while I was there, there was a small number of them), Arabs and Russians (there was a camp organised for Russian children. They always walked with a face full of joy). Let me tell you somthing about about The Family program. We studied with Cambridge English. More about the program for adults. Our study began at 7 a.m. The first lesson was ‘Morning Sparta’ (we learnt new grammar, improved vocabulary), but The Family program lets you omit it. Then we had breakfast, the main classes started at 9. My schedule consisted of the following: the first class (there were two classes for 45 min.) where a teacher and 4 students discussing a topic + vocabulary for it. The second class is a one-to-one class with a teacher (listening, grammar, speaking). Then we had lunch. The third class is one-to-one, too (reading and speaking + grammar). There were some optional classes then, but I attended them too because I liked it (there were discussions of some topics, work in pairs, vocabulary improvement). Then we had dinner and 'Evening Sparta'. Classes finished at 8.55 p.m. In general, my study was from 9 till 9 with breaks for a breakfast, lunch and dinner. As a result: full immersion into the language environment, but without optional classes you can finish at 3 p.m. You can go to the massage or go shopping. I studied the whole day. I had an aim to increase my English level. Now some words about the children program. My daughter studied from 9 till 8:55 (with optional classes) as well: 2 classes (one-to-one), 1 class - a teacher and 4 children + evening classes. There were entertaining activities: waterpark (2 times a week), golf, culinary class, singing, cartoons in English. At the beginning of the study I thought she wouldn't be able to handle such loads. I was surprised she was enjoyed the process so much that we could have no meetings during the breaks. She started speaking in English! She made international friends. I think it's awesome. I'd like to esepcially mark the quality of education - I can't tell about all the teacher there, there are more than 100 teacher at school. But I liked my teachers. The level of their language skills is high, they are always friendly and understanding. Be prepared for additional expenses. In the beginning you should pay 6500 peso for a person, 3000 as a deposit, for books (we payed 2600 peso (for daughter's and mine), you need to pay ofr elecrticity and water (I paied 200 peso for a person a week). Some words about accomodation conditions and about food. We stayed at the campus Sparta. Our conditions weren't luxurious. But there were everything we needed. Advice: take towels, the school doesn't provide you with them. You can buy all hygiene items in the campus shop or in the shopping centers, there are some of them nearby. The school has a coffeeshop and a small shop whee my daughter bought an ice-cream, chocolates and candied fruit. Food is plain, usual here without a big diversity. But I wasn't hungry there. And about the results. In 2 weeks I improved my English level for 1 grade. I think it's a good achievement. My conclusion: if you want to have a real study, you need to come here, but relaxation and other entertainment is only on weekends. I'm satisfied with the quality and how they teach people. I think I'll come here again. I'd like to say Thank you to the Russian manager Anna. She works really well, she can slways help you, answer any questions, support you and she's sincerely happy with student's achievements. Anna told and showed us everything in the first days and she supported us all trip long with a smile and a desire to help us. I am very grateful. ...

I want to share my impressions of the language course in SMEAG. All four weeks that I spent here, I enjoyed every minute of my stay. For a month I noticeably improved my level of English, with teachers who not only gave knowledge but did it so the process of learning was not at least boring. Each teacher tries to contribute something to his lesson, which makes his lesson unique. Due to this, despite the density of the schedule (classes begin at 6:40 am and end at 8:35 pm with lunch breaks, breakfast and dinner) classes flew by unnoticed. Also, on weekends SMEAG provides an opportunity to visit various excursions. During the time spent in SMEAG, I visited Bohol (island with the smallest monkeys in the world), the islands of Olango and Nulasan, I also managed to swim with sharks in Oslob. Excursions usually took up the whole day. In addition to these and other weekend excursions, for EOC participants (English Only Challenge), on Friday's school organizes various activities and excursions around Cebu. EOC is an event at Capital Campus aimed at improving conversational skills. The campus has special zones in which the EOC’s participant should communicate only in English, and also EOC members should dine in a certain area where they take part in activities aimed at improving conversational skills during lunch breaks. In general, the school left a pleasant impression....

I would like to share my experience of studying at Smeag Global Education. It was one of the most memorable moments in my life. The process of education was really interesting, funny and useful. Teachers and office staff were very supportive and understanding in any situation. enjoy staying in Smeag Global Education. It was a really unforgettable experience. I learned lots of new information. The lessons were very interesting, useful and were held in an interactive live manner. The teachers were educative, smiling and they helped me a lot to improve my speaking skills. The Russian manager was really supportive and she provided support in all. Our day started from 6:40 until 20:35, but all classes were very interesting, so we were just a bit tired. I would like to recommend this school to everyone who really wants to improve English especially speaking skills. The school also provides really interesting excursions. I went to Olango island. Snorkeling, tasty food and swimming in the pool, it was really enjoyable. I also have been to Bohol island, Moalboal and Oslob. Bohol island is a very beautiful place with an excellent beach. We went to Chocolate Hills, it is a very picturesque place. After that, we saw a really interesting kind of monkey “Tarsier”. But the most exciting part of our trip was Zip Line. In Moalboal we tried an island hopping, we swam with fishes, turtles, and sardines rushing. Then we went to Kawasan Falls and jumped from an edge of 10 meters. It was really amazing. In Oslob, we swam with whale sharks. It was really nice. So, I highly recommend to go to the Philippines and choose Smeag Global Education, because I am sure it will be one of your unforgettable experience in your life....

I stayed at this awesome school for 3 months and for me the time flew so fast. During my course, I improved my English level, a huge thanks to one-on-one lessons that are individual with each student, so it's just you and the teacher in the class - it's very comfortable. All of the teachers are polite and always ready to help if you have any troubles. At school, students are fed well, and the food is really nourishing. On the weekends and in the evenings, you can go to the city, which has lots of beautiful places to visit. Generally, I got pleased with this school, and I recommend it to everyone!...

This review is for those people who try to explore the market of language schools and choose among already attracted schools, and maybe even countries. If fate leads you to learn English in Philippines, then be thankful to your fate, and start the whole process as soon as possible (the process of it is very easy). Now, let me tell you about my experience at SMEAG school. Firstly, if your course takes place on a Capital campus, so try to do everything to live in that place. In my opinion, it’s the most comfortable campus with its coffee shop and late curfew. It was such a huge pleasure to study there, so I never looked at the time, thinking “when is a break”. Also, it’s still a mystery to me, how to do properly schedule and the structure of the course that you almost do not get tired even in the evening. Going forward, lessons start at 6:40 and end at 20:35 (some of the classes are optional, some of them are obligatory for attending. You will get to know the rules when you come here. Monday is an introductory day - the school team will tell you about everything you need to know, and show you the school and its facilities. Also they will help you get to the shopping center and lead you to the best place for exchanging money). Honestly, every day I enjoyed both studying and living on campus in general. I spent 2 weeks over there, and for that time I improved my speaking skills - even if you don’t want to speak English, you will have to do that anyway all the time(and in the evening you will even think in English). So if you have been waiting for arguments for or against it, then it’s worth it! The experience you get is really awesome....

"Hello everyone! The SMEAG school is the most amazing place for both studying and chilling! You need to be prepared for and you need to have: - During the week you won’r have time to do anything at all! And that’s great! You’ll have a lot of lessons and homework during the day) It’s really cool that there are a lot of bars and restaurans for you in case of tiredness. You can find and buy local beer in every corner) - There are a loot of people and you need to be communicative. Everyone is different and interesting. Someone is coming and someone is leaving every week. It’s the real life of the student which I’ve already forgotten because of work in the past ten years)) By the way, don’t get upset your English is too good or too bad. It’s okay. Everyone is here to study. You’ll be able to find 20-50-70 people with whom you can speak in the sign language. And an advice from me: try to avoid speaking with people from your country)) It’s good of course but you came here to practice. 80 % of the students make this mistake. - The food is deeeelicious, meals are huge. 3 times a day is more than enough for my 30 year old body) BUT be prepared that food will seem to you very boring and the same by the end of the month. I liked that but many girls hated it. - Bring with yourself many medicine stuff… plasters, activated charcoal, koldreks, antibiotics, something from allergies, then antiseptics and all sorts of everyday household stuff - Philippines is a specific country so be prepared for a lot of different emotinons, I’m talking about atmosphere and everything around in the city. But seriously, the school is incredible, staff and teacher are great! There are a lot of star students who is amazing during the lessons, for example Jaferson, Benny or Ely and a lot of others. You can and should study here. In the evening there are a lot of places for chatting, sports and practice. Don’t forget about basketball court!! We played great games a couple of times! I wrote it from my heart!! Good luck in your studies! See you!!...

We all experience good and bad moments in our lives, but even bad things have a bright side. Two months ago, I have decided to study abroad, and due to the price, nice location, the amount of study hours and all the above comments, SMEAG school in the Philippines was the best option to choose. I have booked an ESL course in that school. Here are some things to know before you decide to book a course there. The following points are based on my own experience, some might find them not true for their experience, some students like their teachers and some did not like their teachers at all. First of all, I will explore good things and then things I was not satisfied with. - I enjoyed school activities. Every weekend SMEAG organizes trips to different and famous places providing with transportation, food, equipment and guidance. That is the time when you can forget all the books you were going through the whole week and just relax swimming, doing a snorkeling or scuba-diving, watching beautiful landscapes, eating delicious food and of course chatting with your new buddies from different parts of Asia. Swimming with whale sharks is a “must visit“ place. - The “three times a day” meal is delicious. I can say it was tasty, healthy, nutritious and you have a lot of it. - All teachers and administration staff are friendly, polite and ready to help if you have any questions. - Laundry was easy to use and clothes after getting them back they were folded nicely and smelled great. - The best thing you can get from studying in campuses are new friends. You meet a lot of new people from different countries (85% Asian countries). I have made a lot of new friends there, have learnt about their culture and customs. People are so different all over the world, and in order to know something new about them and their traditions we have to study English. The saddest part was when you had to say you farewells to friends, but do not forget to set an appointment with them somewhere in the world. - On the “Lingua Trip” site it says, ESL course is for all different levels of students (from beginner to advanced). Unfortunately, the information is incorrect. SMEAG school doesn’t have advanced level and can hardly provide upper-intermediate. So, I had to change the course to TOEFL. - Most of the TOEFL classes are boring, and not as productive as you want them to be. Of course, studying is boring sometimes, but here it is boring because of the structure of the class, where you mostly go from test to test answering given questions (1 out of 10 different classes was good because of the structure of the class). - The explanations teachers give on your questions about the test (reading and listening) are not proper (after getting the explanation I still was not sure why that answer was correct) and you have to find out yourself why that answer is correct and yours not, which is actually good, because you learn way more digging back into the text again and again. I could do it at home though, and pay nothing for this. - Filipinos are non-native English speakers, neither are the teachers!!! So, if you decide to choose this school, be ready for the accent they speak with, mispronunciations, and moreover lack of vocabulary. In conclusion, I would like to add that having 3 weeks course in SMEAG was a good experience for me, even though not all my desires were met. It will be a great experience for learners with the basic level of English to dive into the English atmosphere. All the signs in the city and in the campus are in English. All people in Cebu speak English and they will always help you with your questions if you get lost or trying to find a way to the place you want to go. ...

In general, the school left a good impression and a lot of positive emotions. In the begining it was a little bit strange, cause guys and girls are living on different floors, and its forbidden to come on the floor of each other, otherwise its immediate expulsion, also curfew from 11 pm to 5 am, it's a bit weird after many years of independent life. But rules are rules, we came here for knowledges, so all of this is not that important. About study i have no complaints, moreover I was lovely surprised that many lessons are held with the teacher "one on one", which excludes any form of laziness. On the TOEFL preparation course, there were 2 lessons of personal training with the teacher and 2 lessons in groups of 4 students, what slightly brightened up the learning process by small group discussions. In addition, there is a morning and evening sparta, but it was obligatory to visit only for students who came for 1 month and longer, so I have never gone there. Also I liked the weekly TOEFL tests in the same classrooms where the official exam is taking place. Except of this lessons, it was one free class, in my case it was watching a movie, after which the teacher asked me a few questions. At the expense of food, i can not say it was so bad, but also not that perfect, so usually we gone to some closest food courts. I had extra comfort room , so i lived in a single room but with a shared bathroom. Room has all the necessary facilities, furniture and air condition. Eventually based on my experience, if your goal is to pass TOEFL, then the school has everything you need for this, but you need to choose the right term of staying relatively to your level and the desired result. In my case it was a trial trip with the combination of training and vacation in another country, for two weeks we visited several places in Cebu, and according to the results of the TOEFL exam tests the result increased from 48 points to 89. Dare friends and do not be afraid, result will not take long to wait....

"Hello everyone! I want to share my feelings of learning English in SMEAG School. To begin with, I would like to tell that I had to write to the hotline of Linguatrip all the time. I hadn’t been met at the airport. I went with my luggage from Domestic flight aside the International Flights hoping to see a nameplate. All in all, I had to take a taxi and go to the school which was noted in the invitation. But it turned out that I had to live in another campus. So I had to have a little tour from the airport to the campus, from one campus to another. After passing my English-level test, I was instructed by the manager in Cebu about the rules of living in the campus and studying at school. As for study, I chose the ESL course. It included Reading & Writing, Listening & Speaking, Discussion and Morning & Evening Sparta. In Sparta we watched the news and TV-show «Friends». The course was interesting, but I didn’t like a constant changing of teachers, their accent and unnecessary questions. However, the school is very convenient. There was a canteen, a cafe, a laundry, a classroom, a gym and even a small store. The school organized the process very well, everything was thought-out, students felt very comfortable. The school staff was very friendly and responsive. Leisure activities in the Philippines was great. You should visit this country to understand the magnificence of nature.

I came to SMEAG school for 3 weeks. I lived and studied on the Capitol campus. Today is my last day in this wonderful place and I would like to share my impressions. First of all, I really liked the organization of the educational process. Classes began at 6:40 am and ended at 8:30, but it was so interesting. I also had a huge number of friends from different countries, with whom we communicated only in English. All the guys here are very friendly and cheerful. On weekends, the school usually arranges different trips to the islands, where you can go shopping, sunbathe and just have a good time. In general, in SMEAG, did not give a change to be bored. Also, there is a wonderful Russian manager Anna, she always helped me with any questions and difficulties. In general, even for such a short time, I brushed up English well, especially the spoken language. So I'm happy to recommend visiting this wonderful school for everyone who wants to learn English! Guys, come to SMEAG, you will be delighted!...

Good Afternoon! My name is Ivan. I am 21 years old, I am from Russia. I am student of Medical University in Voronezh city.I am interested in sport, especially football and volleyball. Also I like to make friends all around world. I came to the Philippines as for studying English Language which is very important nowadays as for travelling either. Philippines is exotic country with interesting history and unique culture. English is an official language here. Everyone speaks English fluently. Moreover, studying in the Philippines is rather cheaper comparing with other countries, However, level of education is really high. I chose SMEAG Global Education English as training ground in learning English due to the friends’ recommendations. They have already been here and were satisfied with everything. During my studying in SMEAG I travelled a lot : discovered beautiful islands , swam with whale sharks, had experience with snorkeling safari. It was amazing! Cebu city is really nice! Here is a lot of sights and huge shopping malls , for example Ayala mall, J center mall, SM mall and so on…So, I did shopping here, watched movies in the Cinema, visited water park, hang out with my friends in night clubs and restaurants. I really like SMEAG Global Education due to the high level of teaching, English, All teachers are professionals , they explain materials easy and well. Japanese chef cooks very delicious food. All Staff in school is friendly and polite. Everyone supports with any dilemmas. SMEAG gives unique opportunity to make friends from different countries like Japan, China, KOREA, TAIWAN, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Russia as well. Nowadays English is most important language in the world because its international language. People in many countries speaks English like in Great Britain, New Zealand, Australia, the USA, Canada and so on, I would like to speak English well for travelling and business purposes either I will recommend SMEAG to my friends and relatives, as school with high level of teaching English. I really enjoyed during my studying in this school and I am satisfied with everything!...

Hello friends, I would like to share with you the experience of studying on the campus of Sparta. I studied here for 3 months. This is awesome experience in my life. I will write some useful information about the schedule, life on campus and much more. From the first day of arrival to SMEAG school we had an entrance test, and after that it began. This is my daily routine: 6:40 - 8:00 - the first lesson this is a class for learning words and idioms (very well helps to expand your vocabulary). 8:00 - 8:40 - Breakfast, I shall write separately about food later 8:40 - 10:25 - class 4: 1, 4 students and one teacher. In my class were students from Korea, China and Taiwan, here we just talk and had dialogues about different topics. 10:35 - 12:00 - class reading and writing, this is a one-on-one class with a teacher, basically a grammar. 12:00 - 13:00 - lunch 13:00 - 14.35 - speaking and listing class, one-on-one with the teacher. 14.45 - 16.20 - elective class, this is an interactive game, fun and relax.

And most importantly for me, in what you should pay attention when you talking in English, etc. And so every day happened plus homework. If you want really intense. Welcome to Sparta! It's really a very positive atmosphere, it helps a lot, everyone gets to know each other, everyone tries to communicate, teachers are a separate topic, they are like animators, every lesson is a funny and useful show. ...
