E&G newsletter / 3rd week of February, 2016

What's happening in E&G now?
E&G is now working on renovating classrooms

In the middle of last January, E&G has started renovating group classrooms and now it is already done with remodeling of 2 classrooms! Take a look at the the WHOLE NEW classroom with NEW flooring, NEW window, NEW air conditioner and ventilation!!

In this 
present and comfortable classroom, we could expect better learning efficiency from the students

E&G consistently strives to provide a better educational environment which its valued students always deserve! 

Aside from good classroom condition, what do you think are the most important factors to be considered when you choose the language center to study English in?


It is not easy to procure varied ELT (English Language Teaching) books in the Philippines; necessarily many of English language centers in the Philippines are to be provided with  ELT books by a few number of copy shops in Manila and Cebu cities. 
So? The thing with the copy shops is that they don't update their selections of books on a regular basis, and they have still provided the 1st or 2nd editions of their books (reproduced copies) to their customers (English language centers) ever since they bought the original copies of the books.

Consequently, many of the English language centers in the Philippines are to teach the same old editions of ELT books.

E&G is different!
Including TOEIC and Business English books; All books being taught in E&G are new and updated. 

Learning methods and strategies applied in old and new books cannot be the same because more effective ways are developed everyday.

E&G's R&D department has solely been responsible for keeping track of new trends in English education and developing E&G's own English Education Contents and Teaching methods and strategies since the establishment of E&G.
This is one of the reasons making E&G's Language programs special and competitive compared to other same old ESL programs.
