Country info and advice - Philippines
The following comments are from English teachers who have worked, or are currently teaching English in Philippines. If you are an English teacher and have some advice to share about Philippines, please post here.
Teaching and living in the Philippines can be very rewarding because of the warmth and hospitality of the
Filipinos. They smile a lot, they make you feel welcome and they speak English
well. Although in recent years, English proficiency in the Philippines has slid
down. A lot of educators feel that because of the nationalization of the medium
of instruction (Filipino) in 1985, English, which used to be the first language
of a lot of Filipinos has lost its ground, especially in rural areas. There are
a lot of American franchise operated restaurants in the Philippines.
