Before I went to John Robert Powers, I was a little bit scared because maybe the teacher will scold me about the errors I did. When I took JRP lessons (which is the first day), I said, “Well, this isn’t bad at all.” I thought at first that I will have a boring discussion every meeting, but it was fun. Thank you, JRP, for teaching me to conquer my fear and stage fright.

When my mom told me to join JRP, she wanted me to be fluent in English and to be able to express myself confidently. I said yes, and enrolled myself. The classes really helped me not just about how to dress myself but how to be confident and how to interact with other people. The instructors make us feel welcome every class like we’re just friends. JRP really helped me when I entered college. I was more confident and was able to make new friends. Thank you, JRP and to my instructors that pushed me to do well.

On the first day of my class at John Robert Powers, restlessness and nervousness struck me as I entered the unfamiliar environment with strange faces. Initially, I had a difficult time speaking up and sharing my ideas in front of strangers. However, as I engaged in the conversation club, I gradually built up and developed my confidence and speaking skills. I learned that I need not be nervous and just naturally and unhesitatingly share my ideas. In my English class in JRP, I further developed my grammar skills and, somehow, writing skills as well. Indeed, enrolling in JRP was a good decision as it gave me several benefits. Not only did it improve my English writing and communication skills, but also opened the opportunity to allow me to meet and interact with new people.

John Robert Powers helped me a lot in my communication skills. English is my weakness and JRP helped me to overcome that weakness. They taught me the proper usage of tenses, words, and prepositions. They helped me boost my confidence in communicating with other people through English language. Also, they helped me realize that English is not really that hard to use and understand. Before I enrolled in JRP, I really had difficulties communicating in English. But now, I think my communication skills have, somehow, improved. I am now able to use correct grammar. I can speak without hesitations. Although I know that there are still things that I need to improve, I am much better now than I was before I entered JRP. JRP helped me a lot especially in my studies. I am currently a law student. As a law student, I talk more and I write more. I am also obligated to use the English language than Filipino language. Knowing the proper use of my tenses, words, and grammar, I am able to express my thoughts well and my confidence is really amazing. Thank you so much for the opportunity you have given to me to be part of JRP.

I am Byron Benetton C. Pestano, 19. My family and I reside in Nueva Ecija. I am a business student in Wesleyan University. I spent my vacation studying in JRP Makati. My first days here in JRP Makati were good. The next days were better and the last days were the best because everyday, new lessons are learned; new words are added and ALL these made ME a better person.

It’s my honor to be an alumna of this prestigious school. I feel so proud and thankful to my facilitators who helped and taught me. I believe that there is no end to learning so that’s why I am here. I want to learn more especially English. So, at my age, I have no regrets that I enrolled here. Instead, I am so happy and confident now and very proud of myself. Thanks to John Robert Powers.


English Learning Program, Upper Beginner 1 Stage and Intermediate

I had a great time here in John Robert Powers. I learned the basics of English which I did not learn in school. At work, I am now confident in writing letters or memos. I can now deal with my colleagues and speak English in the presence of expats in my work place with much confidence. I relayed my experience in JRP to my former boss and intends to enroll here as well. Lastly, I can use all the things I learned from JRP in the mission I am joining in China this coming December. Thank you so much, John Robert Powers. God bless”

JRP English helped me to be more aware of the use of tenses and how I can use them during job interviews and talking with suppliers. It boosted my confidence as well as in writing besides dealing with clients.

When I heard about John Robert Powers from my former college English professor, I got curious and told my husband about this center. We decided to try it to enhance my English communication skills. So to make the long story short, the positive contribution of JRP in my life is that it boosted my confidence in using English, my self-esteem, and my communication skills especially in our school programs, church meetings, and family gatherings.

I really learned a lot of things from my JRP-ELP experience. They taught me how to overcome my weaknesses. The good and friendly facilitators taught us more than what’s on the book but also valuable lessons and pieces of advice on how to communicate effectively.

I really enjoy attending JRP courses because they really take good care of me, I feel more comfortable now with myself and it helped me mature. I would recommend JRP to other people because we must value ourselves for us to get high paying jobs.

The courses here at JRP helped me to improve myself by interacting with other people and believing more in myself. I would recommend JRP to other individuals because the programs will surely help them to be more confident.
