Life Experiences in Cebu
By: Saori Tanaka

Last summer, I came to the Philippines to take care of orphans. At that time, I really liked this country because there are many kinds of delicious foods, fruits and the people were very friendly. Therefore, I came back to the Philippines to study English.

My Experience in CELI

My Experience in CELI
By: Dang Thi Doi

When I arrived in CELI three months ago, I couldn’t speak English and didn’t understand anything. At first, I felt very bored and stressed in group class. My teacher and classmates spoke about many things and I didn’t understand anything. I was very sad and I thought that it must be very hard for me to study English. But I have self-confidence. My teachers help me a lot and I practice everyday. Now I can understand English and I have improved my ability in speaking. I’m very happy and thankful to my teachers.

To improve one’s health, create balance and relax the mind, CELI offered three yoga sessions. Benice Lin, a Taiwanese student, dedicated two hours for each session. We are grateful for her generosity in imparting some breathing techniques for health improvement, creating balance and relaxing the mind.

Experience in Cebu

Experience in Cebu
By: Lee Seong Hun (Hun)

I arrived in Cebu 6 months ago. I first met with Vietnamese students. Their names are David and Romeo. We made friends with each other. We always had fun in Cebu. In my opinion, Cebu is a serene city. Sometimes it gets boring but sometimes it’s interesting. So searched for interesting places. Cebu has many beautiful beaches. We like the beaches and the ocean in Cebu. The ocean water is really clean. We spend less time on having fun and more time on studying. It’s true. Trust me!

CELI Trivia's

* "Whence" means "from where," so "from whence" is redundant.

* The word 'news' did not come about because it was the plural of 'new.' It came from the first letters of the words North, East, West and South. This was because information was being gathered from all different directions.

* In 1945 a computer at Harvard malfunctioned and Grace Hopper, who was working on the computer, investigated,found a moth in one of the circuits and removed it. Ever since, when something goes wrong with a computer,it is said to have a bug in it.

Welcome to CELI!! We would like to give you some advice for your school life. We hope you find this useful for your stay in CELI.

1. How to use “Jeepney”

“Jeepney” is the most famous public transportation in CEBU. If you get used to “Jeepney”, you can get close to enjoying CEBU life. Usually, the destination is written on the windshield of Jeepney. So, check it first, and then let the “Jeepney” stop. The minimum fare is P7.

CELI ⇒ Marina Mall (Save More) P7
CELI ⇒ Gaisano-Mactan P8

CAMPERS’ DIARY

Today we went to the swimming pool. People swim in the pool. But I cant swim and my friend Linsey too. We were bored so we took pictures with Linsey, Lucy, Tiara and teacher. We took beautiful pictures in some places. We took many pictures. After we were very hungry so we ate hotdog and drank cola with Linsey.

A Plantation Bay

By: Anna

Plantation Bay is near “Maribago”. The place was famous for us but it is expensive. Its entrance fee is P2,000.00 for us to have two rooms. One room is almost P13000.00 for four persons.Plantation Bay was fantastic! There are a lot of pools and plenty of married couples. The ambiance is good. I want to go to that place again next time.
