I’m a seaman and I work with Filipinos. I know they are very friendly, talkative and good English speakers. I love the tropical weather, the beach and the sea. So I immediately decided to come here. I studied two weeks in EV Academy. I like the educational system of the school. Teachers at EV Academy are very professional and high-educated, and there is an “English Only Policy” everywhere in the campus, so you don’t have a choice: You need speak only in English at all times [...] Every day we have 9 lessons (3 MTM and 6 group classes), self-study time and tests. There are many types of activities on campus, such as table tennis, basketball, swimming pool, gym, etc. Thanks EV, see you next time! read more

Мои друзья порекомендовали приехать в эту школу для изучения английского языка. Я – моряк, и я работаю с филиппинцами поэтому не по наслышке знаю, что они очень дружелюбны, разговорчивы и очень хорошо говорят на английском языке. Мне нравится тропический климат, пляжи и море. Поэтому я без раздумья выбрал эту страну для обучения. Я проучился в EV Academy 2 недели. Мне понравилась система образования в этой школе. Все учителя в этой школы хорошо образованы и профессиональны в преподавании английского языка, в школе действует правило общения только на английском, поэтому у вас нет выбора и вы общаетесь на английском все время. Каждый день у нас 9 занятий с преподавателями (3 индивидуальных и 6 групповых), время на домашнюю работу и тесты. На территории школы всегда есть, чем заняться: настольный теннис, баскетбол, плавательный бассейн, тренажерный зал и др. У нас всегда есть возможность купить снеки и напитки на территории школы. Спасибо EV! До новых встреч! read more

They will teach you listening, grammar, speaking and presentation. I believe lots of people have problems with grammar like me. The differences between present/past perfect simple and present/past perfect continuous are very confusing... We don’t need to worry about that anymore, because teachers in EV will teach this from the most basic level. You can also learn how to use important prepositions like "in", "on", and "at" to describe a place, a position or the time correctly. Presentation class is useful too because everyone will have a chance to practice and speak up in front of others. Teachers can help you find and correct the problems in your speech. My favorite class in EV academy is CNN Listening. The teacher will let you listen to the same article again and again. And each time, you need to answer different questions. First, you should point out the specific words in the article. Later, you need to find the definition of each word. After that, you should hear the specific phases and try your best to produce them in the correct time order. Then, you need to answer some questions by completing sentence(s). Finally, you will the whole article. By following this method, you can learn all the details from the article. Of course, if you think the course is too easy or too hard for you, don’t forget that you have the right to change your classes and level [...]These is all I’ve felt and learned at EV Academy. I hope that it will help you to make a decision about studying here. read more

At first, English drove me crazy, but I heard I could study hard here, so I chose this academy. At first it was really hard that to study that much. I had to take vocabulary & sentence tests every day and attend 9 classes plus a self-study session. Every time I wanted to give up, EV managers were here to tell me "you can do it!". They also managed my study habits. They encouraged me a lot. So I studied for a long time here. In EV, I met international students from Vietnam, China, Japan, Taiwan, and Mongolia. This is one of the school's good points! After class, I had time to mingle and play with my friends, and we kept chatting in English. On weekends, we hang out together and spent time swimming at EV swimming pool. Sometimes, I went a trip with my batch mates. I studied with them during class time and break time. We also shared different opinions, so now I understand their cultures. I now feel that the world is big and foreigners have different opinions. These are my memorable experiences in EV Academy. read more

I went to many hotspots: the zoo, beaches, Oslob to swim with whale sharks, Bantayan island, etc. Meanwhile, I made friends from differernt nationalities through those trips. Indeed, I had a very hard time because of my poor English at first. However, my batch mates helped me practice my English. They tried to speak clearly, slowly, and listen to me carefully. Those experiences boosted me when I couldn’t convey what I wanted to say in English. As time went by, my friends told me “Ree, you’ve improved your English skills!” I didn’t realize it so much, but I was happy and really felt the desire to improve it more. What I’ve learned since I came here is that you should always try to convey and understand others. We can change the results depending on our actions. Now I believe it’s never too late to take a step forward. I’m grateful to EV teachers. Because of them, I really enjoyed studying. They often encouraged me saying “you can do it!” with a big smile. EV’s life may be a turning point in my life. Thank you so much, everyone I met, for everything. read more

I already studied at another Spartan academy about 2 years ago in Cebu. That’s why, this time, I chose EV so I can improve my English skill to the maximum in a short period. There are various nationalities here; Koreans, Vietnamese, Taiwanese, Chinese and Japanese. Lots of group classes don’t allow me to be lazy. My classmates, on the other hand, encouraged me, so I could earnestly study English. Besides, the staffs always adjusted our curriculums (classes, MTM teachers etc.) accordingly.
EV rules were stricter than I expected, so at first I was worried whether I could follow them. However I gradually got used to them. Moreover, the Japanese manager helped me and gave me some advice when I had some problems. Plus, the doctor come to check up on us when we got a cold or have medical problem. Thanks to them, I could just concentrate on studying English with a feeling of safety. We can go outside on weekends. I enjoyed shopping, eating out and diving. I felt like a brand new person having these refreshing time.
In my conclusion, I recommend EV if you want to study very hard in a low-cost way and improve English in a short time. There are not so many Japanese students and many group classes. Thank you for all the help you have given me.

EVアカデミーでは8週間お世話になりました。厳しくも楽しい充実した日々を送ることが... ..EVアカデミーでは8週間お世話になりました。厳しくも楽しい充実した日々を送ることが出来ました。私は約2年前にもセブでスパルタ式の学校に留学していました。EVを今回選んだ理由は、短期間で最大限に英語力をのばしたいと思ったからです。生徒は社会人の方もおり、韓国人、ベトナム人、中国人、台湾人、日本人がいました。授業は個人よりグループ授業が多く、自分に甘えることが出来ず、クラスメイトや周囲の人からのいい刺激もあって真摯に取り組むことが出来ました。また、マンツーマンやグループ授業も、状況に応じて随時クラスや先生を変更することが出来たのはとても良かったです。 規則は想像以上に厳しく、最初はやっていけるのか少し心配でしたが、慣れれば平気でした。また何か困ったことや相談事があったときは日本人スタッフの方がいらっしゃったので安心して生活することが出来ました。また、病気にかかったときはお医者さんが来てくれるので安心して勉強に集中できました。金土日は外出することができ、近代的な都市での買い物や食事、大自然やきれいな海で泳ぐなどしてリフレッシュすることが出来ました。  比較的低予算、日本人が少ない、有数のスパルタ式、グループ授業が多いので、短期間に英語力を伸ばしたい方には、EVアカデミーはおススメだと思います。お世話になったスタッフの方、先生ありがとうございました。そして一緒に苦楽をともにしたEVの仲間、本当にありがとう。 read more



I have spent 22 weeks in the Philippines harnessing my English skills. For almost half a year, I have felt at home in EV Academy doing a lot of things at the same time. This experience has molded me not only in improving my English skills but also in being a better version of myself. I’ve studied in ESL course for the first 2 months of my stay. Every morning, I had to join my man-to-man classes. These classes are the four language macro-skill (listening, reading, writing and speaking.) Aside from having a good curriculum, my teachers were kind and passionate in facilitating learning. In times of doubts and confusions, they immediately respond to my concerns. In the afternoon, there were four group classes (presentation, grammar, active speaking, and listening.) These classes give students the opportunity to mingle with foreign classmates. Aside from building friendships, these also allow me to learn about different culture and traditions without even going to their respective countries.

After 2 month stay in ESL course, I decided to challenge myself and be part of IELTS course. IELTS course is more intensive than the previous one and the teachers were teaching highly academic topics. It only means that IELTS was more difficult compared to other courses. That was my first time to be exposed in IELTS, and so, I just got a total band score of 3.5 in my very first mock test but I never lose my determination to improve. After 3 months of intensive training, I was able to reach a band score of 6.5. Warmest gratitude to my passionate IELTS instructors. 

Aside from attending my main classes, I also had the chance to join an optional class, in filmmaking to be specific. Every week, we watched 2 movies. Our teacher was really crazy and funny making the class so enjoyable and engaging. He shared different types of movies and would prepare sets of vocabulary for students. Therefore, we learned different things aside from our main courses. 

It was a great and satisfying experience for me to study at EV Academy, not just for improving our language skills but also making bridges with different nationalities. Everything in EV Academy is excellent. You don’t have to worry about recreational activities here because facilities are all functional and effective. Classrooms are all conducive for learning to make me want to study more. It is indeed more fun in the Philippines, more love in Cebu, and more learning in EV Academy.
