ETHOS: a Cebu English School!

Finding a good English school in the Philippines can be difficult. Cebu has many English schools to choose from. Students looking for an English school in the Philippines are concerned about quality and price. Other factors like housing and location are also important. Cebu has one of the largest selections of English schools in the Philippines. ETHOS is a Cebu English school! ETHOS is a Philippine English school!

What students look for in a Philippine English school

The most common thing students look for when searching for a Philippine English school is PRICE! They mistakenly believe that since the Philippines is “an English speaking country” then ANY English school will be fine. Therefore, they look for the cheapest school because they want to save money. Unfortunately, this is not the best way of thinking. Cheap price does NOT mean best value! Students need to consider the VALUE of a school’s  price. The main thing a student should consider is the QUALITY of the English being taught in a school. Sometimes, the schools with the higher prices are BETTER!    

What KIND of English do YOU want to study?

It is true that most people in the Philippines speak English. However, English is NOT the native language in the Philippines! The English spoken in the Philippines is not the same as the people speak in the USA, Canada, Australia, or the UK. The people in the Philippines speak what is called, “Filipino English.” This is a kind of English, but it is spoken with a lot of grammar, pronunciation, and sentence structure found in the Philippine languages. A student who learns English from “Filipino English” teachers will have difficulties when travelling to countries where English is the native language. Fortunately, ETHOS is a Cebu English school with American English and taught by American native speakers.  

You CAN study English with American teachers in Cebu!

We are the only English school in Cebu with ALL American teachers and we are ready to help you improve your English! We have 2 program options for you to choose from. Our 4-hour English program covers American Pronunciation, Grammar, Reading, and Conversation. The 5-hour program also American Pronunciation, Grammar, Reading, and Conversation plus Writing. Our class sizes are small. There will be a maximum of 6 students in one classroom.

We also have housing!

We also have Dormitory and “Home Stay” housing options. Our housing sites are just a couple of minutes away from the school. ETHOS is located on the southern side of Cebu City. We have a McDonald’s and a Jollibee and two supermarkets just a block away from the school. The 9th largest shopping mall in the world, SM Seaside Mall, is only 5 minutes away!

So… What about the PRICE?

You will find that our prices will be higher than most other schools in Cebu. However, please consider the VALUE of what you get for your money at ETHOS. Instead of Filipino teachers, you get American native speakers. Instead of studying Filipino English, you will get American English.  You will also become part of our American family, which includes three generations! If you choose Home Stay housing, you will live in an American home while you study at ETHOS! Even though our prices might be higher, it would cost you a lot more to travel to the USA to study there with American teachers! ETHOS gives you the opportunity to study American English right here in Asia! You will have cheaper flights, cheaper living expenses, easier immigration rules, and learn American English with native-speaker teachers! This is great value for your money!
