Transfer Student Discount Program Started (NEW)

For ZEN English, we started “transfer student discount program” for students who transferred from another school in Cebu!


For ZEN English, we started “transfer student discount program” for students who transferred from another school in Cebu!
The school will bear the full amount of SSP – 6,500 pesos for the new students. SSP is required when students transfer to a new school. With this discount, students will be able to transfer to our school without worrying about the high cost burden.
This program was created with the intention to help foreign students to study in a better environment. There are many students in Zen English who have studied in Cebu and other schools previously. They transfer to our school because of the reason such as “I was not able to study at all because of the atmosphere around me” and “I did not improve my English skills as I expected”.
When we check with the students on why are they interested in studying in Zen English, they reflected that the studying atmosphere is high in the small campus of Zen English. As a result, they have high motivation to study because of the close relationship forged between the students and the teachers in this petite school. Hence, they can concentrate on their studies here.

We adjust the speed of conversation and the level of vocabulary depending on the English level of the student so that we can ensure that every student learn English at their own pace properly.
