My name is Hoang Anh Dung but my friends call me as CJ. I am 24 years old and have just graduated University in Vietnam. After that, I decided to go to Cebu and study English. I choosed CIA (Cebu International Academy ) because I heared from my friends on Facebook who studied in CIA that studying IELTS is a good way to improve my skills. And I think it is a best choice in my life.

When I came in CIA, I was surprised about people who are approachable, kind and friendly. On my first day of the class, I was so shy but the teacher guided me to communicate with my classmates. At first, I couldn’t speak well and understand what the teacher explained and said. However, after one week practicing, studying and talking with foreigner, I improved a lot. Then I made a lot of foreign friends who became my family in CIA. I also learned different culture from different people I am with. Even though, they have different kind of personalities we could get along with each other. The helped me from the problems that I am facing during my study here. As a result, my skills improved much and I have a confident to speak English to foreigner without hesitation.

Moreover, the best experience I had is when I traveled with my friends and classmates in different places in Cebu. As people know, Philippines is one of the good place to travel when it comes to beach. I went to Oslob and I think it is one of the special scenery. I have been to because there are many activities that treveler can do such as swimming with Whalesharks, going to different island or what we called hopping tour.

To summarize my trip, it is one of the most memorable journey in my life. I think CIA is a best school to study and enjoy life because it is located in Cebu where people can travel, communicate with other people by English and have fun.
