Procedure for studying abroad
1. Find out what you need
The first thing to do when you plan to study abroad is to know your goals.
For example, if you have plans to enter university, migrate, seek a job in western countries or finish university, you need TOEIC and IELTS score.
In addition, TOEIC and IELTS score is needed for working holiday and OJT programs.
If you have any goal or plan, we can help and give you useful information to go the right way.
Just contact us or contact agency in your country.
We will help you!
2. Get counseling about the course and duration of study
Before you start studying abroad, we recommend you to know your English level and which course will you take and how long will you study. If you don’t check your English level and don’t have specific plans about the course and duration of studythan, period of studying English will be longer than what you expected.
3. Check vacancy and tuition fee
When you finished deciding what course to take and period of studying, go to the next step.
Next step is choosing your dormitory.
In peak season such as January -March and June – August, we recommend you to contact us to check the vacancy at least three months earlier.
In normal season, we recommend you to contact us to check the vacancy two months earlier.
The sooner you prepare, the better you can arrange your dormitory reservation.
4. Arrange dormitory and register
When dormitory reservation is complete, you can get invoice of tuition fee and dormitory fee.
Check the invoice and make the necessary payment to the agency. The registration will be completed once the remittance has been accepted. After registration, please take LOA (Letter of Acceptance) from agency.
LOA confirms that you are allowed to study together with the details of your course and duration of stay in TALK academy.
5. Get ready to go!(Passport, Flight ticket, Insurance)

We recommend you to study English and memorize vocabulary as much as you can before you start studying in the Philippines.
Don’t think about doing all that in the academy.
Please study basic grammar and patterns in conversation. Of course, you can improve your English in the academy, but if you learn the basics of grammar and patterns, you can see your progress easily and improve your English better.
