Tian's Adventure: Exploring Baguio with PINES Academy

Reflections on my gap yearWhere should I start? Let's begin with the "location." At that time, I chose Baguio because I simply felt I could study well there without being influenced too much by environmental factors (turns out my willpower is so weak). For this, I am really grateful to my agent. When he analyzed the advantages and disadvantages of Cebu and Baguio, he provided very clear and neutral advice to me, making me rethink what I really wanted. Taking the Baguio Travel Challenge "Baguio," a city that takes 6 hours by car from Manila, with an average annual temperature of around 25 degrees Celsius, abundant in strawberries, and famous for its huge night market. I was really looking forward to the strawberries and night market there! I was so excited that I told the agent I didn't need to take the school's shuttle and challenged myself to go to school. I can only say that if I could do it again, I would obediently take the shuttle and sleep until I reached school. When I arrived at the Baguio bus station, I waited for a long time before finally getting into a taxi. Then I forgot that the agent had told me to tell the driver a certain place so that the driver would know how to get to the school. Well, the driver took me on a sightseeing tour of Baguio, circling around (mountain roads). By the time I reached the school, I was really exhausted, and I still had to attend classes the next day. And then, I only found out that the next day was not the start of classes but a day off because the Philippines has many holidays, so people planning to study in the Philippines should pay attention to which months have many holidays, and agents won't charge less just because of holidays. Studying English Abroad Many people might say, do you have to go abroad to study English? With such a heavy accent here, won't you not understand? For me, this experience really helped me a lot. I went from being too scared to speak English to being able to chat with foreigners (am I bluffing?!). This is something I'm really satisfied with! At least before this, none of the methods I tried could achieve this effect. As for the accent issue, I even have trouble communicating with my family in Chinese, so accents are not really a big problem for me.Choosing Well-Established Pines As for the school, I chose the well-established PINES. This school has dedicated TOEIC and IELTS campuses. I originally planned to transfer to another campus behind the main campus, but I loved my roommates too much and decided to stay at the original campus (for eating, drinking, and having fun?), mainly because I felt that if I transferred, my level might make it difficult for me to keep up. So I told the school I didn't want to transfer, and the school refunded me some tuition fees and accommodation expenses. In the main campus, I chose a semi-Spartan rule: after dinner, I had to self-study in the classroom until 10 p.m. (or else there would be penalties). The next day, I continued with the first class at 8 a.m. This kind of routine really made me feel like a primitive person, I didn't even have time to use my phone. When I returned to Taiwan, there were many things that made me feel like I had disconnected from the world, like a newborn exploring the world. Experiencing the Philippines Also, because the Philippines was ruled by Spain for more than 300 years, there are many salt bread pandesal here, and each bakery has its unique taste. It's so delicious that I could eat it every day ?. Although the quality of life here is not as good as we imagine, the people here are very hardworking (almost waking up at 4 or 5 in the morning...), and their happiness is simple, living in the moment. You can even buy a single candy or a cigarette here, for instant pleasure. Overall Insight The working holiday game in the human world has age restrictions, but this way, no matter how old you are, you can come and experience it. After it ends, you may forget English grammar, but the experience will stay in your memory forever. School: @pinesacademy Agent: @rightherestudyTaiwanese Content:https://www.instagram.com/p/C6nOrcqJsCU/晚了一年的感想從哪裡說起呢,從「地點」開始說好了,當時我會選擇去碧瑤單純覺得我在那裡一定可以好好讀書,不要受太多環境因素影響(原來我意志這麼薄弱)。這點其實我很感謝我的代辦,當他分析宿霧、碧瑤的優缺點時非常明確也提供他中立的建議給我,讓我思考自己要的到底是什麼。「碧瑤」一個從馬尼拉坐車要6個小時的城市,年均溫25度左右、盛產草莓、有名的超大夜市,我真的超期待那裡的草莓跟夜市!就是帶著這樣的興奮感跟代辦說不用搭學校的車,挑戰自己去學校。只能說再來一次我會乖乖搭車睡到學校。當我到了碧瑤巴士站,我等了超久的時間才坐上計程車,然後我忘記代辦說過要跟司機說一個地方司機才會知道學校怎麼走,很好哦司機帶我觀光碧瑤一直繞來繞去(山區路) ,當我到達學校真的筋疲力盡明天還要上課,然後,我當晚才知道隔天不是開學日還要放假一天,因為菲律賓超多節日可以放假,所以要去菲律賓遊學的人要注意哪個月份他們節日多,代辦不會因為節日放假就少收錢哦。​其實很多人會說讀英文一定要到國外嗎?這裡口音這麼重不會聽不懂嗎?對我來說這個經驗真的幫助我很多,我從一個不敢開口說英文到可以跟外國人聊天(畫唬爛?!),這點我就超滿意!至少在這之前我試過的方式都沒辦法讓我有這樣的效果。口音的問題,我跟我家老木用中文溝通都有問題了,口音對我來說真的不是太大的問題。​學校的部分我是選擇比較悠久的PINES,這個學校有專門的多益、雅思校區,我一開始在一般校區後面原本是要換校區,但是我太愛我的室友直接留在原校區繼續(吃喝玩樂?),應該是說我覺得我的程度如果過去會讓我沒辦法消化,所以就跟學校說不過去,學校也會退你一點學費跟那邊住宿的費用。在一般校區我選擇半斯巴達的規則,晚飯後7點一定要在教室自習到晚上10點(如果沒有會有懲罰)。隔天繼續早上第一堂8點的課,這樣的模式真的讓我徹底當一個原始人,根本沒時間用手機,當我回台灣時有好多東西我真的跟世界斷軌很像新生兒探索世界的感覺。​也因為西班牙統治過菲律賓300多年,這裡的鹹麵包pandesal非常多,每一家店烘焙出來的都有不同,好吃到我可以每天都吃的那種好吃?​這裡的人們雖然生活品質不是我們想像中的好,卻是很努力的在生活(幾乎早上4、5點起床…),他們的快樂很簡單就是活在當下,甚至這裡是可以單買ㄧ顆糖果一隻煙,有夠即時享樂。​人類世界的打工渡假有年齡限制的遊戲規則,不過這個方式不論你幾歲都可以來體驗。結束後你可能會忘了英文文法,但是過程會一輩子留在你的記憶裡。學校@pinesacademy代辦@rightherestudy
