フィリピン留学E&Gの目の前にある海の写真

ダバオが安全だとE&GのマネージャーのEdmandさんがおっしゃってくれたのですが、それだけでは日本人には伝わらないとセブ島留学サポートセンターの永井は考えました。

そこで、ダバオのフィリピン人講師にエッセイを書いてもらう事を提案しました。しかし、これがなかなか苦労しました。ダバオにいるフィリピン人講師にしてみれば、日本人が何を求めているのか、よくわからないかったからです。

とはいえ、先日送っていただいたエッセイがこちらです。ダバオの安全性に絞ったエッセイをお願いしましたが、最終的にはE&Gの紹介が少々入ってしまいました。しかし、それでも修正されていない現地のフィリピン人の生の声が入っていますので、是非ご覧ください。

Living in this vast universe is truly a blessing that anyone should be grateful of. As for me, I was lucky enough to be a descendant of a race living in such a wonderful city which I call my homeland, Davao city. It might not be as progressive an modernized as the other prominent cities in the world. Nonetheless, it holds a deep significance in my life. I consider myself fortunate to be able to live and work here. I am an ESL teacher who has been working for almost five years in a productive school which offers indispensable knowledge and fun-filled leaning experiences, named E&G International Language Center.

To tell the truth, I am full of admiration for my believed city, despite of all the negative assumptions and misconceptions which people imagined in their minds due to the relentless negativity being shown by the mass media. Many people, especially foreigners, have already misjudged our city, overlooking the beauty and value which it really possesses. I would like to rectify this wrong perception.

Davao city is located in southeastern part of Mindanao. However, terrorism doesn’t reign supreme here. The people here are conveniently living in peace and with full security. We can do a lot of thinks freely and comfortably without worrying of our safety. A handful of rules and regulations are being implemented all over the city, which the citizens willingly abide. It is because we realized the importance of these policies for our own benefits. Furthermore, we are also fortunate to be governed by such effective and efficient leaders to whom citizens give their utmost respect.

In regards to the Marawi crisis, this problem has caused a great impact not only to the city itself, but as well as, to the whole Mindanao island, not to mention the entire Philippines. A large number of innocent lives were lost due to the merciless killing of vicious group of people. Nevertheless, the battle has already ended, thanks to the nobility of our soldiers who risked their lives to protect and reclaimed Marawi from terrorists. Filipinos are now united in helping rebuilding the destroyed city and praying for its fast recovery soon. When that time comes, I hope Mindanao will claim its tainted reputation and become renowned to be a glorious and prestigious place which is worthy to be traveled once again.

To sum it up, I’am encouraging all of those who are having doubts and pessimistic about Davao city. I, as well as, the rest of the citizens here, know for a fact what is really happening inside the walls of our city. I dare you to come and visit Davao for you to see and experience the comfortable and enjoyable life we are experiencing here. Therefore, I urge you to enroll in E&G and have a memorable experience in studying English in our believed school. Be part of our E&G family and discover the true beauty of Davao.
