In today’s fast-changing world, fluency in English is becoming more and more important. For non-native speakers, learning the English language can broaden the mind, enhance personal profile, and open more academic and career opportunities.
Established in 2015 initially as English as a Second Language tutorial center for the Korean expatriate community in Angeles City, Pampanga, Gentry International Technical College has expanded to become a specialty international school offering excellent Senior High School Education, with the following programs focus on: Arts and Design, Culinary, Sports, GAS integrated with a first rate ESL program.
In its commitment to equip students with theoretical and practical skills aligned with global standards, Gentry International Technical College partners with Hopkins International Partners, Inc. to strengthen its students’ education and provide them with a global certification for English proficiency.
“GIT College is not a big school. But what we lack in numbers, we make up for quality. Our class set-up is kept small to ensure our students develop the skills needed to be globally competitive. The TOEFL assessment strengthens our ESL program and provides our students with internationally recognized certificates that will help them be accepted and thrive in top universities abroad,” GIT College Administrator Lady Linn Mallen shares.
The partnership provides GIT College senior high school students with the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL®) assessment, the most widely respected English language tests recognized by universities and colleges across 150 countries, including Australia, Canada, UK, and the United States. Results from the TOEFL® assessments enables GIT College to benchmark scores with global standards and customize goals, allowing teachers and students to monitor progress, and take proactive steps to improve communication skills. The test provides students with a certificate that can be used for their college applications.
Besides providing its students with global certifications, the partnership accredits GIT College as an official TOEIC® testing center in Pampanga. Foreign nationals and Filipinos in Central Luzon in need of TOEIC® exams may book an exam schedule at the GIT College.
“We share the vision of Hopkins International Partners, Inc. to promote English language proficiency in the country, starting with our students. The TOEFL® assessment opens new doors of academic opportunities to our students, just as much as TOEIC® provides career prospects to adults,” Mallen explains.
GIT College has taken the first step to certify its students’ English proficiency in its quest to provide excellent international education. To ensure your institution is at par with the rest of the world, utilize global certifications such as TOEFL® and TOEIC®. Visit hopkins.ph to know how.
