There are many schools providing one-to-one English lessons for up to 4-10 hours per day in the Philippines, as compared to the other English speaking countries such as the US, UK, Canada, Australia and NZ where most of the English schools provide only 10-20 group lessons per week. Students normally do not get the chance to speak for more than 5 minutes per group class which would significantly slow down their English skill acquisition speed. With more chance of speaking and practising, the intensive one-to-one classes is the most attractive feature for the Philippines English education. Due to the high cost of setting up one-to-one classes, this learning model cannot be easily imitated in other countries. Students will be trained to start speaking English without hesitation within a week as students are exposed to English conversation throughout the day.
The fee would be 1/3 to 1/2 as much as studying in other countries such as US, UK, Canada and Australia. The average all-inclusive monthly cost of education is around USD 1,500-2,000, including tuition, accommodations, meals, and laundry. Some people may argue that it is cheaper to study in their own countries, yet again the English speaking environment cannot be created easily in their home and surroundings for non-English speaking countries.
