UPDATED: For the third year now, ETHOS has the Philippine Department of Tourism accreditation! ETHOS continues its commitment to maintaining full accredited with all government agencies so that we provide quality services to foreign tourists wanting to visit and study English in the Philippines.
You can trust ETHOS because we are TESDA, BID – SSP, and DOT certified!
ETHOS Corp received Bureau of Immigration Accreditation! Today we passed our Immigration inspection and now are permitted to receive foreign students through the government’s Special Study Permit (SSP) program.
ETHOS is now TESDA and BID – SSP certified!
WOW!!! In the last quarter of 2015, representatives of the prestigious Japanese blog site Phil-Portal paid a visit to ETHOS. They wanted to see if what they had heard about the quality and friendliness of the school was really true. They wrote a series of articles about what they found and it became one of their most popular articles.
They returned earlier this month and told us about the response. They asked if they could come again and get some additional information so they could write another article. We what to thank Kouta and his crew for taking time to see our program and to experience what ETHOS has to offer. If you want more details about us, and you can read Nihongo, go check out the articles!
In the last quarter of 2015, ETHOS started accepting people for internships with the company. Our first intern was Junki Ozeki, from Japan. He was with us for six months studying English and helping us with our Japanese language program.
As Junki was preparing to leave, we were preparing to welcome Jo Munheyong, from South Korea. Mun will be staying with us for three months, during which time he will be studying English and helping to set up a Korean language department here at ETHOS.
We are excited to have Mun with us. He is an energetic young man who wants very much to help others and he has a great desire both to teach and to learn!
On Thursday, March 3, 2016, after several months delay, we received our TESDA facility inspection. The inspectors were very professional and they really liked our facility. They commented that it was very clean and well constructed. They congratulated us and said that our official certificate will be ready within 10 days! This is the final step in the process of becoming registered as an authorized language school in the Philippines. We are trying to register two language programs! One is American Conversational English and the other is Basic Japanese.
We are excited because now that we have TESDA registration, we can include this information in all of our promotional material! Our next goal is to have Bureau of Immigration registration so that we can offer longer term student a Special Study Permit (SSP). We also plan to register with the Department of Tourism so that word of our school and programs will spread farther and quicker in the future.
