Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: In my opinion, the dormitory is the best accommodation option for young people. If you want to live in a hotel, you should book two or three days. If you don't like the room, you can find another hotel in Boracay.
Other comments: A good combination to practice English and enjoy the sea and the sun.
The school is on the top of the mountain, it is very quiet and suitable for studying. Teachers are professional and nice. You also will meet different students from around the world.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: It is better not go during the rainy season (Aug to Nov), as it is always raining and sometimes there is no electricity and tap water.
Other comments: The food portions provided by the school at lunch and dinner were small, for every student and we often asked for seconds, though, many students said they still were hungry.
It was fun to communicate with other students from different countries. The staff were kind and friendly.

Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The following information might be helpful, if I had known in advance. - Laundry service is twice a week. The service was provided by an external company. - Insect bite reviler is required. (There are many mosquitoes and ants) - Wi-fi signal is weak. You can connect only in a common area, a kitchen. (Some students bought a sim card) - It takes around 15 minutes to go to the beach from the residence. I recommend you to take a walk on the beach in the morning.
Other comments: In the group lessons, I could focus on the discussions. I could consult with a teacher and arrange the contents of private lessons, such as pronunciation, , reading aloud and grammars.
The teachers are wonderful. People are easy-going and friendly (probably) due to the character of Boracay.
