Removal of the IDP(Business) course

This would be effective after 2019.1.1 arrival. Should the student’s arrival date be 2019.1.1 onwards, please be advised that we will no longer offer the IDP course.


Up to now, our IDP course has mainly included 2 concepts:.

1. to study effective measures to get a job abroad like interviews/resume-making/document reading

2. Communication and daily conversation in a business scene


  This time, we decided to rebuild this program and focus more on number 2 by integrating it into the ESL program in order to make it simpler/more consistent.

Focus on number 2 is more practical and necessary according to 90% of the past IDP students and through the comments of those who are already employed.



we will provide “Practical conversational skill in a business situation” as part of the ESL program for Pre-Intermediate to higher level.


* Those who will arrive and take the IDP course within this year are still accepted.

* Students currently enrolled in the IDP course for 2019 shall still be under the current IDP program.

– Duration: 1 week

I really love traveling so I wanna improve my English skills to communicate with foreigners.
Serendipity I met an agent in Manila and she recommended WALES to me.
I’ve improved a lot due to 5 man to man classes and 2 group classes. I’m not afraid or feel shy to talk in English anymore so I feel that my improvement is quite bit obvious.
I pretty like the studying atmosphere in WALES. Everyone are so friendly and approachable. Teachers are also nice, patient and have good pronunciation.
The location of WALES is very nice, I can go everywhere by walking. Baguio’s weather is really comfortable during summer.

Chloe (21)

Student information:

– Name: Chloe
– Nationality: Taiwanese
– Program: IELTS
– Duration: 4 week

Since I’m a student and I want to apply master degree in England or USA so I chose IELTS course. The agency of the language company suggested me WALES so I come here.

My English has improved but I think if you have the basic of English you cant improve a lot, you only can improve a little bit. And if you don’t have the basic of English, I think you will improve a lot cause everyday you have to speak English.

The classes are good, teachers are also excellent. But the closet of dormitory is outside. The food in school is delicious, match my taste.

I think if you want to apply master degree you can come here to take TOEFL or IETLS course.

The road between Baguio and Manila is non-passing zone

【2018.8.19 UPDATED Information】

Marcos highway has been re-opened, so highway bus and other vehicle can pass this way.

Provincial buses (Joybus, Victory Liner and other companies) are now passing Naguilian highway while Marcos highway is non-passing zone.


You can expect 2~3 hours more than usual to arrive in Baguio, vice versa from Baguio to Manila. Night time : Around 6~7 hours / Day time : Around 8~10 hours can be estimated.



If you plan to go down to Manila from Baguio, you had better buy a ticket which is earlier than actual departure.

If you will come to Baguio from Manila, toilet must be done before departure.


The prospect of reopening the road is still uncertain.

It will be posted here after restoration.
