Started by an English language professor with decades of experience teaching in Japanese universities, Davao Language Academy offers an intimate learning environment for English language learners. It is located on a hilltop residential community in Davao, called GSIS, Matina, in the center of the city. It is 10 minutes away from Davao's best malls, shopping centers, and cultural landmarks. Despite being in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city, our location has a panoramic view of Mt. Apo, the highest peak in the Philippines and the surrounding Davao Bay. It is also quite breezy and the city lights at night are a marvel to watch. With DLA you will be able to enjoy the convenience of being in the city center, while still being able to enjoy the quiet surroundings of the neighborhood. Because of the small scale school environment, students can develop trusting and close relationships with their teachers who are able to attend to the individual needs of each student. Davao City is the safest city in the Philippines, but the school staff makes sure students are secure and safe in their daily activities. Because we are like a family, we will drive you around the city, take you shopping in our van and pick you up from wherever you are in the city. Our van can take you to interesting places, farms, parks, beaches, markets, and malls in the city. Davao is the food basket of the Philippines. The best foods are affordable, even for those who have a tight budget, and are available everywhere. You can also enjoy fresh and affordable exotic fruits like durian, mangosteen, rambutan, and lanzones, among many others, as the Davao Region is one of the country's biggest fruit producing region. We also own a cacao farm where students can stay and experience making 100% cacao chocolate. Davao City was created by the Japanese at the turn of the 20th century, and as such, there is a strong connection between Davao and Japan. Many second and third generation Japanese live in Davao. We are ready to serve your every need as you attend to your main goal of acquiring English language skills. Our teachers are young and dynamic. They are well-trained teachers who are passionate about what they do. We'll make your study time feel like a vacation. Come and enroll at Davao Language Academy now!
