Safety Management – Night Caution
- Most of the Filipinos are friendly and mild. However, it is better to be careful all the time.
- Even the Filipinos could be terrified and hurt.
- Danger is not only for Filipinos but for foreigners too. I do not go around late at night, and I do not go to unfamiliar places.
- Carry a small unit of money and put the bag in front of you is a way to avoid pickpocketing.
- The Philippines is a place where everyone lives the same way. I do not need to worry about life itself, but we should be careful.
TIP for Healthy Philippine Life – Difficulties and Countermeasures
- Drowsiness Symptoms – Symptoms such as stomach pains, diarrhea, and high fever can occur. Sufficient water intake is required with and ionic drinks. If symptoms persist for a long time, be sure to tell any office staff and go to the hospital.
- Because of the large difference in temperature outside the room, it is easy to get airborne. It is important to have long clothing that protect your body, as it can cause headaches and colds. Drink plenty of water from time to time, sweat minerals and taking vitamins to supplement your diet is also suggested.
TIP for successful training
- English is recreational, not academic. There is no turning back. Students must study hard on weekdays to meet the purpose of the trainingand they can travel on weekends in Antique, Boracay, and many more. Healing and recharging your body and mind will enable you to achieve higher achievement and will have a wonderful memory and experience that can not be replaced
- Believe in yourself do not depend on your parents or friends. Practice using English with your tutors rather than hang out with your same nationality friends, talk to your tutor and make use of your chance to use English. It is a part of learning that can not be found on the four corners of the classroom.
