A&J – Interview with Aaron

Could you please introduce yourself? Tell us where are you from?

Hi! I’m Aaron (Wonbeen Park), 24 years old and I’m South Korea. A year ago, I was in Australia working on a farm in Stanthorpe, Queensland, Australia. I spent most of the time with other Koreans picking up tomato’ in this beautiful countryside.

Why did you choose The Philippines to study the English Language?

I heard there are many schools in the here that offers 1-on-1 Classes. When I was in Korean they only had group classes. Because of this, I chose the Philippines and the fees are quite affordable.

How did you find about Baguio City (Summer Capital of the Philippines)?

Before I came here I thought Baguio was a small place but I saw big shopping malls and restaurants. The weather is cool also. This is why I love Baguio.

Many English Schools in the Baguio but why did you Choose A&J English Academy?

I heard A&J is a small school. I wanted to be in this school because it’s easier to make many friends. Also, there are less Korean students. I was recommended by an agency in Korean. So I searched the internet and found out the tuition fee was less.

What do you usually do on the weekends? Do you have many friends here?

Usually, I always go out. A week ago, I went to SM, Market and Bowling Alley. This week we are planning to go to Pugad. They have zip lines, swimming pools, and other activities. And on Sunday I plan to go to the cinemas to watch the Avengers – Infinity War. I had Spanish and English from England when I was in Australia.

Where is your favorite place to hang out in Baguio? Are you an outgoing person?

I’m still new here and haven’t been around much. So far, I love the City. I love trips, hiking in the mountains and I also love taking pictures.

Every students’ graduates from A&J Academy, could you tell me your plans after graduation?

After graduation, I will go back to Australia again. And try to apply for a new job. As long as I can work with foreigners. And hopefully, I can make many international friends.

One last question, do you have any comments/suggestion for new students coming to A&J to study English?

I suggest you make many friends when you are here so it would be easy for you to stay and learn.
