QQEnglish is located in the center of Cebu City and in the resort area of Lapu-Lapu City, placed on neighboring Mactan Island. Because the Philippines was colonized by the United States, English now is its official second language. You can easily overcome the language barrier and improve your conversational skills because everyday you communicate with Filipino teachers and other international students.
The founder Raiko Fujioka, a Japanese businessman, was inspired by his own experience of studying English in the Philippines. Initially, the school taught only Japanese students, but because of its unprecedented standard of quality learning, it expanded its market to other Asian countries, to CIS countries including Russia, and to Iran and Brazil.
Our school has offline and online classes. For students who come to learn English directly in the Philippines, we have two campuses both with dormitories. These buildings are placed on the on the two neighboring islands: Cebu (in the prestigious IT Park area) and Mactan (the resort area by the beach), so you can choose the setting most convenient for you.
For busy people who need to raise their level of proficiency quickly and effectively but don`t have time to come here in person, QQEnglish offers you online classes via «Skype. The online teachers of QQEnglish work around the clock, so you can take classes whenever you want and wherever you are.
The main advantage of QQEnglish is that it offers a large number of "face-to-face" classes with intensively-trained teachers who help its students improve their level quickly. QQEnglish ensures real immersion in a language community. Each student selects an individual training program according to his or her personal wishes and level of proficiency. The school also offers a wide range of programs including preparation for IELTS and TOEIC exams, the world-famous Callan Method, Business English, and exclusively designed QQBasics course. QQEnglish employs more than 800 teachers, all of whom are graduates of the best universities in the Philippines and also TESOL certified.
Together, we can see the natural beauty and famous attractions of the Philippines. Every weekend, our school organizes trips and excursions. Besides the all year round summer and friendly atmosphere for students who choose to study here, the Philippines has another significant advantage; there is no need to obtain a special educational visa for studying here. In addition to the usual tourist visa, you will only need to pay a fee for tuition to obtain a SSP (Special Study Permit). Our school assists with the extension of SSPs and student visas and the registration of all necessary documents.
Cebu IT Park (formerly known as Asiatown IT Park) is a 24-hectare mixed-use business park in Cebu City, Philippines, envisioned to attract businesses in the Information Technology industry. This is the center of business and cultural life in the city.
QQEnglish has three dormitories (male, female and family variants). All of them are just a five-minute walk from the school. Comfortable 1/2/4-bedrooms are equipped with wi-fi and air conditioning. The dormitory areas are patrolled by security guards 24-7 and cleaning staff are available to regularly clean the shared rooms.
Cebu City is the second largest city in the Philippines and one of the country's interesting cultural and historical havens. Century-old heritage sites and relics from the Spanish and American eras are present everywhere in the city. Being considered as the second busiest business hub in the country, the city of Cebu hosts world-class shopping malls, good restaurants, night entertainment and sports centers. Night owls will be interested to visit the nightclubs of Cebu.
Lapu-Lapu City on Mactan Island is home to Cebu's most famous and ravishing white sandy beaches. The town is just an hour's drive from the city. It may be smaller than Cebu, but it's a place where one can surely be at peace because of its simplicity and quiet ambience. It takes about 30 minutes to travel to the airport from the campus.
The academic area and dormitories are located in the same building. Our campus here was previously a hotel, so the style of the rooms are hotel-inspired too. There are 1, 2, 4 and 6-bed rooms, as well as family and en suite accommodation. Just like the main campus, cleaning personnel are also provided by the company. The area is guarded by security guards 24 hours a day.
The school is placed on the seafront, and the rooms offer beautiful sea views. The silence and tranquility allow you to focus on your studies. To relax, students can go to the beach, located only a half hour away by boat or can go on a sea excursion with QQEnglish. There are a lot of massage parlors and good restaurants in the area. The school is situated in front of the beach where each room offers a panoramic sea view.
