Our group classes have a maximum of 6 students and ALL classes have American teachers! At ETHOS, you can receive friendly and personalized small-group instruction from American teachers without having to go to the USA!
We have two program options for the number of study hours in each class day, and classes go from Monday through Friday. Students must choose between 4 hours per day and 5 hours per day, and each hour covers a different subject. The 4-hour program, will study American Pronunciation, Grammar, Conversation, and Reading. The 5-hour program will cover the same 4 subjects plus an additional hour for Writing.
Each 1-hour class will contain 55 minutes of class time and a 5 minute break at the end before your next class. The normal class day starts at 09:00 AM and ends at 16:00 PM, and all students have 1 hour for lunch.
Cebu English Housing Options
We also have several housing options to choose from.
Option 1: “Home Stay” (Click here for more details!)
Our “Home Stay” option is most popular. You can share a room with other students in the home of one of our American teachers and this will allow you to live in an English environment during your time with us.
Home Stay includes breakfast on weekdays, however students must find their own breakfast on weekends and holidays and lunch and dinner every day. Home Stay students may cook food in the dormitory kitchen, and on school days, we have a local caterer who brings delicious inexpensive home-cooked Filipino food to the school for lunch.
All home stay houses have FREE high-speed internet!
Home Stay spaces at ETHOS are always limited and are booked on a “first come, first served” basis, so, get your reservations in as early as possible!
Option 2: Dormitory Housing! (Click here for more details!)
You can also stay in our school’s dormitory apartment. Dormitory students share rooms with other students. The dormitory option does not include meals, but the apartment has a complete kitchen where students can cook food. There are two supermarkets close by where students can buy groceries.
