The original idea of studying in the Philippines was probably to see others' study Tours online, and then I spent several months in the Philippines myself.
I studied in China for a period of time before, and I still made some progress. However, after seeing the sharing post of study tour online, I was really worried. I was not sure whether I should continue my study in China or go to the Philippines for the same time. I asked my teacher at that time. She said that she had heard that one of her friends had been to a language school in the Philippines, which was said to be quite good. I suggested that I should try it.
In retrospect, the two ways are different. Going to an English class is just to learn a language. But going to the Philippines is a different life experience. It is not only a chance to use English, but also a spiritual journey. Your mind may change after you come back. Now if I had to give you some advice, I would say it's better to go to the Philippines.
Of course, the final choice is personal, there is no absolute good or bad.
