Greetings from Genius English Academy The school by the sea Situated less than 20 minutes from Mactan International Airport, Genius English Academy is located in a tropical island resort within walking distance of restaurants, restobars, coffee shops, supermarkets, foreign exchange, and spas. Linked to Cebu island by two bridges (or a short ferry trip if you are feeling adventurous!) you are close to the cultural centre of the Philippines. Known as the Queen of the South, Cebu has many reminders of its past and its links to Spain. A visit to some of the historical sites like Fort San Pedro, Santo Niño Church, and Magellan’s Cross is a must for culture vultures.
