23 Japanese Agents attended the annual Fam tour sponsored by Baguio English Schools Association (BESA). Pines International Academy took the opportunity to provide a first-hand experience of premium English learning to its agency partners on this significant gathering.

Pines also introduced its newest innovation for language learning to the Japanese agency partners. The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) will be applied to its curriculum and leveling system that will be effective on March 2, 2019.The institution will issue CEFR report card to its students that contains detailed information about the student’s CERF Level, IELTS equivalent Band Score, PIA level and Pines English Proficiency Test Score.

The campus tour took place after the Pines Presentation. The group was divided into 2. They visited the learning area of the students and took photos of 1 on 1 and 4 on 1 classrooms. They also visited offices and other campus facilities that included IELTS Test Center, Managers’ Office, Marketing Office, Cafeteria, Gym and Laundry Center.

The enthusiastic agents also checked out the view from the academy’s rooftop.
They were also brought to see the accommodations and saw the efficient personal space for students in the quadruple room. Some agents tried lying down on the beds and took magnificent clips that showed the accommodation set-up and view. The agents were impressed with the first-hand experience in the academy on this official visit.

The Japanese Fam tour was successfully held, and Pines would like to extend its appreciation to its agency partners and BESA for making this meaningful gathering possible. We are looking forward to having you again next year.
