SAEc to Launch 3 Books


Economics, aside from being an interesting subject, is equally vital to humanity and to the world as a whole. It cuts across areas of discipline. This has been the guiding principle behind the course offerings of the School of Applied Economics (SAEc) of the University of Southeastern Philippines.

Fifteen years after when SAEc was formally established as a college of the University of Southeastern Philippines (USeP) on April 19, 1999, SAEc continues to excel in research, a testimony of which were papers presented in local, regional, national and international conferences and conventions. Most of the papers had been published either at the websites of seminar organizers or in a hard copy form.

To celebrate its fifteen years of existence, SAEc decided to publish three (3) books, classified as: Production Economics (Book 1), Development Economics and Policy Issues (Book 2), and Applied Econometric Techniques (Book 3).

USeP conducts English Language camp for Korean students

Forty (40) students from Pyunghae Technical High School in Korea attended the three-week English language camp organized by the University of Southeastern Philippines. The global English language study, held in USeP Obrero campus, Davao City, started in the last week of December 2013 and will end on Friday, January 10.

The Korean students aged between 15 and 19, participated in various activities, including flea market, stage play, games, speech choir, Philippine dances, theatre performances, and field trips during weekends – all focused on the use of English.

The teacher-lecturers emphasized English communication skills as the students have limited exposure to spoken English. Teachers do the lectures in the morning, while one-on-one tutorial happens in the afternoon. The morning classes also focused on Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC). Students were grouped according to their English levels, namely: basic, intermediate, and advanced. Besides learning English, they were also introduced to the Philippine culture and the education system of the country.

Perfecto A. Alibin, the USeP President, said that the camp is a good way for the Korean students to learn the English language, and for the University students, who serve as tutors, to interact with fellow student from another country, and also learn from them.
