PH Department of Tourism features QQEnglish
JAKARTA, Indonesia – The Philippine Department of Tourism (PDOT) in Indonesia featured QQEnglish in a virtual tour last August 28, 2020.
The virtual tour was a campaign between Destination Tour, Indonesia, and the PH Department of Tourism that aims to promote tourism in Central Visayas. Roughly around 100 Indonesian spectators attended the tour.
The PDOT chose QQEnglish because of its reputation as the biggest ESL school in Cebu and the Philippines. Miss Dory, QQEnglish Seafront Manager, hosted the virtual tour which took nearly over 30 minutes.
“I am thrilled that QQEnglish got featured again,” Dory exclaimed. “I am proud that our beloved school got this opportunity because I think QQEnglish deserves this recognition. This will be great for introducing QQEnglish to Indonesia. I’m glad that the tour went well. I had fun hosting the tour.”
During the tour, Miss Dory told her virtual audience about why QQEnglish is the best amongst other ESL schools in the Philippines. She toured them on the whole campus, starting from its white beach front and cozy beach villa. She then continued with a quick tour of the cafe and showed Indonesians the International cuisines students they can enjoy. With its high-end facility, students got amazed when they saw QQEnglish’s operations floor and other facilities they can enjoy.
QQEnglish hopes that the virtual tour would pave the way for Indonesian English Language Learners to visit the Philippines. Moreover, the leading ESL in the Philippines is positive that the success of the said virtual tour would boost the tourism industry of Cebu.
Sir Gian and Miss Ivy of Destination Tour and Sir Eugene of QQEnglish moderated the said of the virtual tour.

During the tour, Miss Rosal, of the PH Department of Tourism, mentioned the flights available from Jakarta to Manila and Cebu.

Meanwhile, Miss PG, the local tour guide from Cebu, opened the Cebu tour by welcoming tourists to Mactan International Airport.
