- What English program is best for me?
Do you need English for travel or personal enrichment?
If so, Blended Learning classes are best for you as that program works on making students more conversational. You also have the option for conversational classes in a one-on-one setting.
Do you want to be exposed to intensive English classes where you could learn the rules of grammar, improve your sentence construction, and become a more effective reader and listener?
Our Intensive English Group classes are perfect for students that want a more detailed approach to learning. These classes will provide you ample practice of the rules of the language through lectures and exercises. You may also opt for English for Specific Purposes, our one-on-one program, to hone in on personal weaknesses.
Do you need to prepare for a standardized test or a school entrance exam? Are you having a difficult time with specific academic subjects in school?
We have tutorials to help you prepare for tests like TOEIC, TOEFL, IELTS, GED, as well as school entrance exams. We also offer students from Enderun and other schools academic tutorials for Math, English, Science, Accounting, and more.
Are you a foreign student from a non-English speaking country looking into applying to Enderun Colleges as a college student?

Your options as a student are discussed during your Needs Analysis meeting.
- What is the enrollment process?
All students applying for an English course are required to take an English Placement Test and undergo a quick interview. A Needs Analysis meeting will come after the interview wherein the test results will be discussed, the student’s learning objectives will be identified, and the proper program will be recommended. After the student decides on what program he would like to take, the interviewer will advise the student regarding available schedules and the earliest date to start the course. The student will be provided with an invoice containing the details of the student’s schedule, period of study, and fees which the student will have to settle before starting classes.
Students applying for foreign languages are given a short diagnostic test on the first meeting.
- What are my admissions requirements to take a language course as a foreigner?
All foreign students that enter the Philippines under a tourist visa must acquire a Special Study Permit to be allowed to study any short course in the country. The Special Study Permit is not the same thing as a Student Visa. Foreign students must have a Special Study Permit alongside their Tourist Visa.
- Can Enderun help me process my Special Study Permit and Visa Extension?
Yes, we can help our students arrange and acquire their Special Study Permits. The student may also opt for us to process their visa extensions.
- Do I receive a certificate after completing a course?
Yes, students will receive a certificate of completion at the end of their enrollment.
- If I travel during my enrollment, what will happen to my classes?
We understand that most of our students have busy schedules. Should you need to go on a leave of absence, please inform the core team at least 4-6 hours before your scheduled class. However, for last minute absences, late notifications (less than 4 hours notice) will be considered as a consumed session. For longer leaves, please inform us when you will be travelling and when to expect you to resume lessons so that we may put your enrollment on hold.

There is a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 10 students per group class.
