Koreans Flock to the Philippines to Learn English

They come in their thousands every month, eager to learn what is
considered as the language of some 1.8 billion people worldwide.

For South Korean students, the Philippines is now a haven as far as
learning the English language is concerned.

The last five years saw the phenomenal rise of the Philippines as the
prime source of English education for South Koreans.

Whether they come to the Philippines to study English or sit in front
of their computers at home in Seoul and learn the correct
pronunciation of English words from a teacher in Manila, South Koreans
are bent on learning English as a second language as part of the
globalization plan implemented by the government.
