Small is Beautiful! Smallness is our strength. Started by an English language professor with decades of experience teaching in Japanese universities, Davao Language Academy offers an intimate learning environment for English language learners. It is located on a hilltop residential community in Davao, called GSIS, Matina. The location has a panoramic view of Mt. Apo, the highest peak in the Philippines and the surrounding Davao Bay. It is also quite breezy and the city lights at night are a marvel to watch.
