“Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.”

-Pat Conroy

Cultural diversity and variations characterize Davao, the most pleasant region in the southern island of Mindanao, Philippines. The capital city of Davao has been considered as one of the most livable cities in Southeast Asia that progresses day by day carrying the banner, “Love, Peace and Progress from Island to Highlands”.

There are more than thirteen ethno-linguistic groups residing in the Davao region, each having their own unique living cultures and traditions that were drawn from common racial and historical origins, but shaped distinctively by their own physical environment, historical experiences and exposure to other cultures. Weaving the gaps of these various ethnic groups is one of the goals of this competitive and well-disciplined city.

Davao as one of the largest cities outside of Metro Manila will ensure you of wide roads and buildings present. Imagine that without traffic. Greater security and even cleanliness all through out the city space.

Given with natural resources be it beaches and islands that were aesthetically created. Indeed, Davao’s greatest asset is its people and the astonishing biological, natural resources and cultural diversity in the area giving Davao Language Academy (DLA) a perfect spot to build its competitive and well-equipped tutorial learning center.

“I recognize that proficiency in English in this age of globalization is necessary especially if we would like to be able to compete in the knowledge-based world” (Naumann, 2011).

English language acts as a “lingua franca”, a common language that enables people from diverse backgrounds and ethnicities to communicate on a more or less equitable basis. English has become a world-wide language, with numerous countries adopting it as an official language. English is the dominant international language in science, business, entertainment, and diplomacy, and also on the Internet.

English classes will help you learn vocabulary and basic grammar principles. If you want to become truly proficient at speaking and understanding English, you have to practice together with the English-speakers. With that, DLA possesses and offers better teaching methodologies in the English language. We believe that the education of our foreign students greatly depends on the teachers. With that they should serve as role models by being good and effective communicators. Here in DLA, success of the students is our priority.

The best learning a learner could have is through experience, this is just one of the practices we have here in Davao Language Academy. We believe that students learn best when they fully experience a certain thing and they can able to apply the things they’ve learned from us. Letting the students experience various academic activities such as actual class discussions or reporting using the English language, them as the lecturer is a must. Being able to obtain and apply learning is necessary and vital.

In most fields of work your ability to speak English can help you advance your career; helping you get the job you want and earn more money. No matter what your area of expertise, skill in English will contribute substantially to your success.
