Do you feel worried, troubled and doubtful about your English skills? Everyone agrees that studying English is good. It boosts confidence, brightens your career, and allows you to do more things around the world. A quote that says, “Learning another language is like becoming another person.” Just ONE BIG IDEA. One big idea and you can be a better English speaker someday. I am Teacher Cheche. I’m one of the teachers of F2F. Teaching is my passion. It requires great patience and effort to be able to instruct kids, teenagers and adults. I have been teaching English for more than seven years. The stories I have heard from my (former) students could fill a book. Some stories are about giving up, and some are about life experiences that everyone ‘must have’. Perhaps, I want to inspire them – wait, I was supposed to be teaching – how to improve and …

Pretty much, I can sum up everything that I want to say in “I love teaching English” simply because that is the truth. Period. But my boss isn’t going to like a 1-sentence introduction so I have to lengthen it. It’s been weeks since I received the news that I have to write an introductory blog about myself. Man, I still don’t know what to say about myself. So let me just tell you about pizza, and how much I love it, and how much I would die to eat it every moment of my life. My student recently noticed that I often use “pizza” in my examples. It scared me that I was unconsciously telling others how addicted I am to pizza. Please, forgive me. You see, the feeling that I have for pizza is equally the same as what I have for English. I love English as much …

What a Cliche: “There’s No Place Like Home” As many people said, home is where they live, but for others, it is where they feel the most wanted, appreciated or involved. Therefore, everyone’s description of home could be different. It could be a specific place where you find comfort, joy, love, support and a sense of consistency or simply refer to “home life”. How about you? Where is your home? Nevertheless, no matter what, people will still continue to use this phrase out of context, so I guess what I’m trying to say is that we should always think before we speak because we don’t always know the implications of what we’re saying. Some things may seem as simple as black and white, but have roots deeper than what you can see from the surface. Look at the view in the photo above, Yes! That’s Taal Lake View where you …

Oslob Cebu, whale shark encounter What is a family? According to some dictionary, Family is a group consisting of parents and children living together in a household. Another definition is “a basic social unit in a society related by blood or marriage”, and so on and so forth. But for me I think, Family is not only how the dictionary defines it, because I found a family here in F2F. This was taken in Tagaytay Highlands when F2F had a Sports activity. This photo was taken by Teacher Jz when we climbed Mt. Maculot in Batangas. Most of My photos are taken by Teacher Jz. Hi, I’m Teacher Sharon and I’m a teacher, a mother, and a big sister in F2F.

◎Teacher’s blog (Teacher Jz) What comes to mind when you hear the word “Philippines”? Most people will probably say “hot weather”, “bananas and mangoes”, or “white sand beaches”. Well, all those answers are correct, but the Philippines has so much more to offer, and one of those many things is English proficiency.     On the summit of a mountain I am Teacher JZ, and I work for Face to Face English School, which is one the leading language centers in the Philippines. I started teaching English as a part-time job when I was a university student and found myself in love with this profession. As a result, I pursued this career even after finishing my school.
