This course is ideal for those who want to participate or plan to participate in overseas volunteer programs. Since it is a PBL course on poverty in the Philippines, it is a good opportunity to learn about the facts of poverty in the Philippines and think about what you can do.

Those who are thinking of studying in the Philippines.

When studying in the Philippines, you can participate in study tours organized by NPOs on weekends. Through the interaction with people whom the organizations are supporting, you will be able to find the problems prior to actually going to the site. And the visit will be more fruitful and help provide more effective support for them.

Those who have plan to go abroad for study or work.

The world population is 7 billion. The English population is said to be 1.7 billion, of which 1.4 billion are non-English speaking English speakers. It can be said that the majority of English speakers are non-native English speakers. In reality, many people speak English with different accents and pronunciation intonation. Understanding such Englishes is also a global skill.
