Teaching English in Cebu City, Philippines

Updated on July 7, 2011

Cebu City is the second largest city in the Philippines. It has almost all the amenities that can be found in a big city like Metro Manila. There are big establishments, bpo companies, big malls, and many job opportunities. This is the reason why most people from the country flock to this city for studies and work opportunities.

Aside from the citizens of the country, many foreign nationals also prefer to study, work and even live in Cebu. It is almost like Manila but to even a greater convenienve and advantage as there is lesser noise, traffic and you don't have to wake up so early in the morning just to prepare and reach your destination. You can be there in as short as 15 minutes or one hour the most in heavy traffic. The city has also many things to offer. It has it's beautiful and inviting beaches which are only less than an hour from the city proper. The people are so warm and you can always find your way to your destination by simply asking from the street vendors or nearby professionals that you meet in the street. These people are very much willing to help you.

Majority of those who study in the city are Korean Nationals. They prefer studying English in Cebu than in Korea as they get first hand English communication practice. Every time they talk with the locals, these people always speak in English to them. Though at first, Koreans find it hard to speak the language, they get used to it and they learn from their day to day communication with the locals and those from other nationalities. The cost is also a lot cheaper than when they study in Korea, much more in UK or the US. Plus, they also get a vacation of a lifetime enjoying the pristine and white beaches of the cities neighboring islands like Boracay, Camiguin, Bantayan and Bohol which they can reach in 30 minutes via fastcraft or overnight by ordinary boat ride.

If you are a native Englsih spaker or a near-native speaker, you have an edge as you have the very first requirement to teach in these schools. If you are considering a career as an English as a Second Language teacher, the schools where you can apply or study are listed below.
