WHAT MAKES LEARNING ENGLISH IN EV ACADEMY EFFECTIVE?
By Ms. Meg Rivera (EV ACADEMY Academic coordinator)
EV ACADEMY is a leading English Language Institute based in Cebu (Philippines) since 2004 and specialize in short-term intensive English courses for individuals and groups. We offer exclusive full service English courses. Our packages include English classes, accommodation, catering and selected activities.
Our management team is one of the pioneers in the Philippines. We have been operating as an ESL center since 2002, and we are the very first in Cebu to develop IEP (Intensive English Programs – commonly known in Asia as “Spartan programs”).
Over the last 12 years, we have taught English to over 10,000 students from six different countries.

2. COURSE OBJECTIVES

3. TEACHING APPROACH
a. INTENSIVE PROGRAMS
In Asia, most people study English for a very specific reason (most commonly academic or professional) and need to improve fast: the only option is to choose an intensive program. At EV, students can optimize their study time and study up to 10 hours a day for faster results.
Most of our classes are CLT based. Communicative Language Teaching has long proven to be more effective than the traditional “Grammar based” methods. This method focuses on integrating classroom INTERACTION with students’ interests and goals. Our lessons are meaningful, and guarantee that the 4 main language competencies (listening, reading, speaking, writing) are developed simultaneously.
c. LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
– GLOBAL COMMUNITY : With students from 6 different countries and a multi-cultural management bringing the best of each culture, EV ACADEMY is a great and friendly place to learn English and open your mind to the international community. Additionally, EV implements a strict EOP (English Only Policy) in the Academy.
– FINDING THE RIGHT BALANCE…
With more than 10 years experience in teaching English, we fully understand that this “intensive learning” concept works best when students have a well-balanced life on campus.
At EV, you will find all the facilities & amenities you can dream of to relax, exercise and enjoy your life after a long day of intensive study.
