Why in Philippines?
Because he earned a full ride scholarship.
How'd he get the scholarship?
He took the Benildean entrance test and the results along with his high school records qualified him to the Benildean Excellence in Scholastics and Talent (BEST) Scholarship in Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia Arts.
That and good genes :)
Test was online?
No. He took a trip with his dad to Philippines in November 2015 and took the entrance test in the school.
De La Salle - College of Saint Benilde
Does he like to go to school in Philippines?
Not at first. When we first suggested the idea of going here he said, "I'd rather be a hobo than go to college there!" He said people here don't speak English.
Do people speak English there?
Lol...YES! My son was so silly saying that. We do speak English and we speak it in our cute Filipino accent.
We also use spoon and fork. Lol...for real! People have asked this! My goodness people...travel! Go and explore the world so you wouldn't have to shame yourself with these ignorant questions. If you can't travel...read.
So what changed his mind?
The scholarship and the allowance from the school.
How long does he have to be in school?
It's 3 semesters a year and it'll take 10 semesters for him to finish his degree.
You won't see him that long?
Not really. He gets to come home every year. That or we visit him.
What's he taking?
Do people really speak English there?
