Our partner school is established since 2005 on the island and practises teaching focussed on communication, by favouring listening and reading comprehension. The students are called upon for debates, forums, conferences and interviews. The school is managed by Canadians who have imported their know-how and the academic quality of their country of origin into Boracay in order to teach an English there according to their standards. You will learn English with native English-speaking teachers, in small groups. The one-to-one classes are given by Filipino teachers. The small size of this school favours interaction between the students from the four corners of the world and the privileged environment of the course centre establishes good humour from the first lesson of the morning.

Boracay ist leider überfüllt mit Touristen und hat nicht viel mit dem Rest der Philippinen gemeinsam. Die Schule ist der Wahnsinn. Gut organisiert und hilfsbereit.

On était que 2 dans l'école à parler français et en tout seulement 6 européens. (2 espagnoles, 2 italiennes, un belge et moi Suisse) Il y avait beaucoup de taiwannais, chinois, japonais, coréens. Du coup j ai bien progressé en anglais car je ne parlais quasi pas français mais par contre beaucoup d élèves parlaient chinois entre eux.. et au final ça à créé 2 groupes dans l'école. Ceux qui parlaient chinois et ceux qui parlaient anglais. Les cours étaitent très bien, peu d élèves par classe ce qui permet de beaucoup parler durant les cours. Les enseignants gentils et souriants. J avais 3x 50min de cours. Un cours seule avec le prof, un cours de grammaire (on était 4 dans la classe) et un cours de vocabulaire (on était 2 dans la classe)Le personnel de l'école en général est aimable et toujours la pour rendre service, aider et renseigner.

Boracay ist sehr überfüllt mit Chinesen und Konsumtouristen. Aber die Kombination mit Ferienfeeling und Englisch lernen ist empfehlenswert.Die Lehrer sehr professionell. Methodik/Didaktik unbedingt notwenig mit Computern aufzurüsten.

Host family
Our partner school chooses families for the international students who have at least one foreigner within their household. In this way, they speak English very well and are delighted to accommodate you and offer you a convivial stay. In a welcoming atmosphere of pleasant comfort, you share the daily life of a Filipino family and learn a thousand things about the life of the inhabitants of Boracay. You will have breakfast as well as lunch and the evening meal with your hosts and will stay in a single room.

Tonglen Boracay Resort Hotel
Run by an English-Filipino couple, this corner of paradise offers beautiful facilities and the perfect combination between European efficiency and Filipino hospitality. Close to the beach and less than 30 minutes away by foot from the school, the air-conditioned, en-suite rooms have private balconies and free Wi-Fi. Enjoy the swimming pool and party in the BBQ area with your new friends! Bedlinen and towels are provided. The staff – available 24h – organises the airport transfer and helps you book your excursions. A laundry service is also available.

Lingganay Hotel Resort Beach Boracay
With its private beach and its large swimming pool, this hotel appeals to visitors at first sight. Guests stay in beautifully furnished one-room private villas that are surrounded by gardens and located right by the sea. All the rooms are air-conditioned and include a TV. A bar, a restaurant, massage services, a bus for transfers, Internet access and a highly dedicated staff, it looks like paradise!

On the main beaches, you will find numerous points of sale and hire for practising water sports. You will be able to get the most modern equipment and take lessons at very reasonable rates, whether for underwater diving, sailing (outriggers), kite surfing or windsurfing. The magnificent coral reef offers a variety of sites capable of satisfying even the most demanding divers. Kite surfing, favoured by the wind of rare consistency, is practised above all from October to April. Small isolated bays, picturesque waterfalls, peaceful landscapes crossed by quiet rivers, a tropical rainforest stocked with countless species and mysterious grottos are so many attractive aims of excursions.
You also find excellent shops and the Boracay Butterfly Garden is worth a visit. Explore this island in a motorised tuk-tuk (rickshaw) or hire a bike or a motorbike to be more independent. The village of Manoc-Manoc, which is located at the southern extremity of Boracay, is not to be missed. By visiting it, you will have an insight into the traditions of the Philippines, which will help you to understand the lifestyle of the island's inhabitants better.
