My name is Monica. I come from Shanghai, China. I have stayed in Philinter for 8 months. At first, I couldn’t speak anything and didn’t know anything about English even the alphabet. I had decided to stay for 6 months but I changed my mind. I extended my stay for another 2 months because I wanted to study and learn more. What impressed me most was the humanistic environment in the Philippines. I could experience warm hospitality from the local people. They are kind, honest, optimistic and cheerful. I was touched. I didn’t feel lonely because teachers in Philinter always encouraged me to do my best and comforted me. Philinter teachers gave me good education. Philinter has different types of classes such as (1on1, SGC and BGC.) I have improved my English skills. During my first week, I wanted to go back to my country because it was difficult but I have realized that staying in Philinter was the best thing.
Now, I feel sad because I don’t want to go back to my country. I have enjoyed my life in Philinter. I will miss my friends, teachers and of course, my buddy teacher Jes. She helped me a lot during my stay in Philinter. I will come back someday.
