CNS II – Practice makes perfect!
- 12 weeks
Please, introduce yourself.
My name is Leo, I’m from Taipei Taiwan. This is my first time to study English in the Philippines.
Everything is special to me.
Why did you start to study IELTS?
In my opinion, firstly, I think IELTS is a comprehensive exam for learning English, which require not only students’ English ability but also their critical thinking. IELTS is not simply just an exam for me, it can also hugely improve my English skills. Secondly, I am going to study abroad so I have to get an IELTS score.
How about the learning environment in CNSⅡ?
Teachers are enthusiastic about teaching, and teachers get along with students.
Most students are conscientious on studying so there is the great studious atmosphere in CNS2. I think it helps me a lot because I am not an active person to study spontaneously. However, due to this peers’ influence, I started to working hard to achieve my goal score.
What is your plan after finishing the study in CNSⅡ?
I will take a real IELTS exam. I will study abroad after I get my aimed sores. Besides that, I will keep studying English.
[About the IELTS course]
While studying at CNSⅡ for the last 3 weeks, how did you feel?
I realized that my English ability was improving, even though it was not improving very quickly. But I got higher scores on last weekly test than last month, which was a big breakthrough for me. I was exhilarating.
Which class is the most effective to study?
Well, it is my speaking group class, because I can learn more ideas from other students and I can also learn from their answers. It is wonderful to have brainstorming together.
Who is your best teacher? And why do you think so?
Teacher Janice is my favorite teacher because she is very approachable and friendly to students. On her speaking class, she always encourages students. Because of her, I can speak English confidently without any fear. Furthermore, I have learned a lot of good speaking vocabularies from her. She really helps me a lot on speaking.

Based on your experience, how is Baguio?
Local people are very friendly and hospitality. The weather is not very hot compared to other cities in the Philippines. Filipino cuisine is very scrumptious.
Before coming to CNSⅡ, what should new students prepare for successful study?
They should be open-minded and should be willing to learn. Plus, It is better to prepare their own grammar books or speaking materials for brainstorming and ideas.
