About Language immersion courses in Philippines

Do you either live in or are planning to visit the Philippines and considering studying a new language?  If so, one of the first things you will undoubtedly discover is that there are a couple of options from which to choose.  Below we will take a closer look at these options, along with some of the features that make the Philippines a great place to study a new language.

About the Philippines and Their Language Schools

The Philippines, officially known as the Republic of the Philippines, is an archipelago consisting of over 7,000 islands.  Located in Southeast Asia, the country boasts a population of over 94 million, making it the 12th most populous country in the world.  Depending on the classification method used, there are between 130 and 165 languages spoken in the Philippines, but in actuality, only 12 are recognized as auxiliary languages, and only 2—Filipino and English—are considered official, national languages of this very populous and diverse country.

The capital and government seat of the Philippines is Manila, a major metropolitan area by Asian standards, one that is exceedingly diverse, both culturally and economically.  The Filipino language is spoken almost exclusively in this city, which is also where the majority of language schools in the Philippines are located.  Students and adults wishing to study a second language in Manila can choose from one of the many Filipino or English courses available, the former attracting mostly visitors and new arrivals to the country, and the latter drawing mainly Manila and other Philippine residents looking to master English for business or educational purposes.

In the Philippines, both Filipino and English are used in the nation’s schools.  Classes such as language arts and humanities are taught in the Filipino language, while math, science and technology students receive English instruction.  Newscasts in Manila and beyond are delivered in Filipino, while business and government correspondence is generally written in English.  This blending of the two languages enables the Philippines to be a major player in world business and economics, and offers the country’s students a very well-rounded education and an increased number of opportunities.

The fact that most language schools in the Philippines are located in Manila, the nation’s capital and most vibrant city, is actually rather fortunate for school participants, as there are many things to do and see in this bustling Asian city.  A couple of these must-see sights include:

Rizal Park

Situated in the very heart of Manila, Rizal Park provides 143 acres of much-needed green space to the city, along with wonderful opportunities for rest and recreation.  Named for a famous Filipino writer, philosopher and staunch anti-colonialist, Rizal Park features well-manicured ornamental gardens, a skating rink and a large chess plaza, making it a great place to unwind after class while observing and interacting with the Filipino people and culture.

National Museum of the Philippines

The National Museum of the Philippines is a veritable showroom, the perfect escape for exploring and learning to appreciate the cultural, historical and natural heritage of the vast Philippine Islands.  Divided artfully between 5 separate sections—botany, art, zoology, anthropology and geology—the museum provides a full day (or more) of fascinating learning and discovery.
