About CNSⅡ

Q. Please, introduce yourself.
A. My name is Jason. I come from Taiwan and prepare for the IELTS in this summer vacation. Before coming to the Philippines, I used to prepare TOEIC and get 700 scores in Taiwan.

Q. Why did you start to study IELTS?
A. Actually. I have to pass an admission test which needs a score for IELTS 5.5 in Taiwan. In addition, I want to enhance my level of facing any problems from English. However, I think that IELTS is the most difficult test for students in Taiwan.

Q. How did you know CNSⅡ for the first time, and why did you choose this academy?
A. Search the internet. I think that CNSll is a suitable school for me because there aren’t many entertainments. If you want to study hard and enjoy the natural environment as well as the life of a slow moment, it was the best choice for you.

Q. How about the learning environment in CNSⅡ?
A. Well, beautiful scenery and convenient transportation. CNS2 has the best writing teacher and speaking teacher.

Q. What is your plan after finishing study in CNSⅡ?
A. Prepare my admission test for university and be a doctor in the future. Next summer vacation, I will come to Baguio city to learn English again.

A. Really tried but pleased. I enjoy all the English-speaking environment and has made rapid progress.

Q. Which class is the most effective to study?

About teachers

Q. How about the quality of CNSⅡ teachers?
A. Writing teachers and the speaking teacher are quite well. But I think all students need to try which teacher is suitable for them. You can try to change your teacher until You are satisfied.

Q. Who is your best teacher? And why do you think so?
A. T. Gene. He has outstanding logic and experience in IELTS writing, but T. Gene is quite strict that not every student can accept his teaching style.

Secrets to improve an IELTS score

Q. What was your weakest subject and how did you improve this one?
A. Listening is the weakest for me, so I frequently chat and listen with teachers in their free time. In my view, chatting is the fastest way to improve our English level.

Tips for new students

Q. Based on your experience, how about Baguio?
A. Beautiful but boring. There are numerous foreign restaurants and college students. You can enjoy a lot of exotic styles.

Q. Before coming to CNSⅡ, what should new students prepare for successful study?
A. Try to remember more words as much as you can. when you come to the CNS2, you don’t have more time to prepare.
