MONOL – Chun retells what he learns this summer
I usually spend every summer with my friends visiting other cities. But this summer, I want to make it worthwhile.
I decided to come to the Philippines, in Monol, to spend my time and to study English. I have been studying here for two months and I met good people and I improved my skills in English.
Before I came here, I had a narrow opinion about the circle of friends because since I was born, I have lived in the same place. I didn’t think that people I usually haven’t met were real friends.
But since I entered Monol, this opinion entirely changed.
In this place, I met many friends who have lived in different cities and countries. Spending many times with them, I realized that if we have the rapport with each other, their ages, hometown, and nationality are not important. Because of the change of my opinion, I opened my mind to them until, finally, we became close friends. I was even invited to my friend’s hometown in Qingdao, China in July.
Most people may want to get just one thing – studying English abroad. However, I think that you will get extra things like friends, experience, traveling and learning English during this time.
If someone is undecided whether to go to Monol or not for studying a language abroad, I’ll say “just go to Monol without thinking too much.”
