Hello, my name is Peeradon Nawilaijaroen. You can call me Wai. I come from Thailand and I’m 17 years old. I come to the Philippines to improve my English skill, specifically for TOEFL. My father researched online and found that the English courses in the Philippines are low cost and high quality. For that reason my father applied for the course for me online.
I still remember that the first time when I arrived here it was a little difficult because I can’t adapt to the environment here. The weather here is very hot and dry. I must buy a lot of sunscreen lotion to use. Without lotion my skin will peel off. Filipinos are very kind and friendly. But the traffic here is quite bad with a lot of cars all the time. 3D Academy, the school where I study is located in the city center. So I can feel the impact of the bad traffic all the time.
However, I enjoy my life here because there are many students with different nationalities coming to study at 3D Academy. I stay in the quadruple dormitory room, sharing the room with 3 other students. There is a bathroom attached in the room for 4 of us. All of my roommates are very good. They help me in many things and also invited me to eat snacks at night together.
I come to study here to develop my English skills. Right now, I am starting to witness the results as I know more vocabularies now. And I have a full picture of the TOEFL exam. I know what kind of exam TOEFL is and how to prepare for the test. I have practiced reading and comprehension in English. I would be able to answer most of the questions. I have also practiced paraphrasing.
Most importantly, I find more courage to start speaking English now. Before coming here, I didn’t dare to speak. When I first came here, I rarely speak because I was afraid to make mistake. But now that I speak more, I find it easier to correct the sentences the more I practice. I also learned a lot of grammar rules and I would take group classes with my classmates. We can exchange ideas easily. Also, I have practiced reading and on how to generate main idea for use to write an essay or answer the questions.
Coming here to study is definitely a good experience. I recommend everyone to try. Come to visit or study languages in the Philippines. You wouldn’t regret it.
