At Pines Academy, we value the well-being of our students as much as we give importance to their success. That is why we work on fortifying their perspective while giving them propitious opportunities to excel.
Aside from the skill enhancement activities our school provides, students can also learn through our website. The blog posts provide crucial help to their educational development and personal growth.
However, since our students came from different countries, we make sure that we speak for unbiased and neutral guidance.
A message or wisdom is easier to understand when it is pertinent to us or to something that we are doing. Hence the cornerstone of this blog site is to direct the students in fulfilling their purpose. So when you study English, make sure that your knowledge is not only limited to learning all about grammar. Do not fail to gain extra insights through other platforms provided by the school through this website.
In addition to the list of informative articles, this blog will feature the relevance of the 4F of life in your English journey:
First, find your purpose.
The fact that you are already taking the first step to progress by studying English is genuinely fascinating.
But in case you’re wondering, “What is the significance of finding my purpose and not limiting myself?”
The answer is simple. Purpose influence behavior. It gives you a sense of perception to explore possibilities. When you limit yourself, your vision lacks positive impact.
And to further elaborate, here’s a simple illustration:
Let’s say you like collecting and reading fantasy books. However, your teacher for six months asked you to write a short story in the drama genre instead.
Since drama is never your cup of tea, you ended up being stuck for weeks. Later on, you start to wonder if you still want to study English with your current teacher. In that case, you put your found purpose to a test. Not to mention you let it distract you.
The point is, if you don’t limit yourself by trying to read drama books, you could’ve started already. Plus, you allow your doubt to revert away from the bigger picture in the scenario. Your teacher only wanted you to look into the possibility of unveiling how much you’ve improved.
Secondly, forgive your past.
When we are so eager to go after our goals, we oftentimes lose courage as soon as we are hit by one minor bump.
For that, we must learn to bring back the kind of peace that helps us go on with life. It is by acknowledging and forgiving our shortcomings. The same goes when you study English. When you fail at one topic due to its complicated rules, don’t give up easily.
Don’t let your frustration stop you from learning. Failure is not a warning that the entire training is not good for you.
Learn from the wrong grammar, incorrect use of conjunctions, and even the numerous flawed phrases you uttered. Let those experiences influence you into becoming a better version of yourself.
Learn to forgive, turn your back against them and detach the useful ones away from the futile thoughts. Thereafter, walk away from such disappointments. Carry on by remembering the reason why you want to study English.
Third, focus on your present.
Remember that being mindful is interconnected with being present.
Mindfulness allows you to better balance your emotions and utilize appreciation and empathy.
Such is necessary for learning a new skill. It is a very important part of our daily life, no matter where we are.
It is of great significance that when you study English, learn to prioritize being engrossed in improving. In that way, you can direct all your effort and time in only one direction. Do not waste your energy and resources. Being great means nothing when our frame of reference is chaotic. So focus on your learning journey and be practical rather than showy.
Dedication is the key when you study English.
One more thing, you need to be in the right environment. That is why Pines International Academy- the best school to study English in Baguio City is here. It is so easy to find the best place to concentrate while studying English on our two campuses:

Lastly, fuel your future.
Nobody indeed knows what our future holds. But we can determine the future we will have. That power is in our hands through our principles.
They are the fundamental underlying truths and beliefs that form the foundation of our knowledge and values and guide our actions.
We need to be consistent in our endeavors to fuel our future.
Consistency instills discipline. It makes us more aware of the things needed to be done.
It shows us what and where we are lacking. Most especially, it guides us how to formulate strategies. Nevertheless, it helps us monitor our growth.
To be consistent, self-control needs to be established along with your action plan. Another thing is to have something or someone by your side as a reminder to stay on track.
Here’s a personal experience for your reference:
When I was in college, I took Visual Arts Education as one of my minors. Our professor told us that if we want to see changes in our art style, we give ourselves three months. While being consistent at one technique.
I remember telling her that I have ADHD so it is impossible for me to do so. She then turned to me and asked, “but are you willing to try?”.
When I told her that I am, she volunteered to be my reminder-buddy. Every day for three months we would meet and paint together.
After some time, she gradually introduced different art styles to me. I learned a bit about most of them. But she made me so comfortable with my personal choice. I can’t paint unless it’s in a freestyle manner. I’m beyond grateful for her teachings and patience.
Until today, I would message her every time I paint. Because of her, I unlocked being dedicated enough until it became part of my routine.
To our students, the role of your English teachers is a strong point in your studies. Don’t let your priorities other than your initial goal become a liability or hindrance to fueling your future. When things go rough, always remember that vision gives pain a purpose.
Failing is a chance to turn labor into power.
We are aware of how hard it is to perfect one’s ideal craft. Therefore Pines International Academy affirms to improve with you for the betterment of your experience.
There is no shortcut to refining your English, it is a process.
So when things become too sweeping to overcome every failure, remember that you have collected enough victories you needed to walk past through it anew. Remember when you conquered previous setbacks? You can do it again. Nobody can take away your goal, it is yours to manage and secure.
