About HCSI


Harvest Christian School International (HCSI) is a non-stock, non-profit mission school and educational ministry of John 14:12 Ministries, Inc. founded by God's humble servants, Sir Art Tangal and wife Aida, last June 1997. The desire to train future Godly leaders in the Philippines is the heart of the vision of Harvest Christian School International of Cebu, Inc.

Our Vision

“A transformed Christian community deeply committed to a life of integrity, loyalty, social responsibility, quality service and academic excellence” .

Course Description:

The TESOL Training course of HCSI is a 120-hour course.  It is designed to develop the teaching skills of the participant-student.  It has two (2) main components: language skills and teaching skills.

The school has adopted two (2) types of TESOL/TEFL training:  the on-site training and the online/distance course training.  On-site trainings are conducted in the premises of Harvest Christian School International (HCSI) in Cebu City, Philippines while the online/distance course training is done at the home or workplace of the student at his/her own pace. The online/distance course training is offered because of the difficulty of some participants to attend and complete the course in an on-site environment as most of them are working professionals.  Enrollment in the online/distance course training is anytime during the year.  After completing all course module requirements, the participant-student will then be given a TESOL Certificate by Harvest Christian School International (HCSI) either in the school or in the mail.


Since the Philippines is a developing country, our FEE for the course is socialized as follows:

For Filipino Citizens: (within the Philippines)

    P  9,990.00 pesos for online/distance course training*

     P 14,990.00 pesos for on-site training

When considering where in the world you want to teach English, the big 3 for ESL/EFL/TEFL jobs are:

Asia: Japan, South Korea, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia are the popular spots because they have so many ESL/EFL/TEFL jobs available. In addition, there are always positions coming up infrequently in places like Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia though you must be a qualified teacher to obtain these. You may even find positions for Cambodia and Laos but you should look at the reputation of ESL/EFL/TEFL schools carefully due to lack of a solid legal system for recourse.

Europe: Everyone dreams of teaching English in Greece, Italy, France or Spain but unless you are an European Union (EU) citizen it is difficult to obtain these teaching positions. The more frequent ESL/EFL/TEFL jobs are available in Eastern Europe in places like Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Ukraine and Russia. These positions don\'t pay very well by western standards but they provide a lot of opportunity for travel while not teaching.

The Middle East: Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates (UAE) are the most common with Bahrain, Yemen and Qatar occasionally having ESL/EFL/TEFL job openings. Now there are also more teaching positions available in Iraq. The Middle East is popular for the money paid for teaching positions but don\'t expect much of a social life due to cultural restraints.
