Of course you can.
Is it free to get my school listed on your site? Open or Close
The simple answer is, YES!
We offer a basic FREE listing for all schools in Cebu.
However, if you would like a more detailed listing there is a very small fee, this is to cover the administrative costs of maintaining this site.
When you list or edit your schools information, you will notice that some entries are free, some are paid for, it's your choice which route you follow.
How do I list my school on your site? Open or Close
First, you must register on our site. This is FREE.
Once you have registered and activated your account, we will upgrade your account (if you are a school) so that you may add your school's details to our directory and post job vacancies that you may have. This may take upto 24 hours, we have to sleep too. Once you have been notifiyed your account has been upgraded and you log in, you will see a new menu item on the main top menu of the site labeled 'ADD YOUR SCHOOL' simply click on this, a new page will load and you can add your school details.
Work your way down the page, adding details as nessasary/needed.
Pay attention to the 'Tool Tips' that you come across, follow the instructions given or your entry may be refused or edited by our moderators. This is done to ensure a uniformity between school details from different schools.
Try to make your information as striking as possible, your information represents you, your online image, remember you never get a second chance to make a good first impression.
You can use HTML, if you know it, in the editor, just select the 'source' button (top left corner of the editor buttons) some tags are restricted, so they will be stripped out on save and your entry will not be formatted as you expected. Play around and see what works best for you. Alternatively you can use the WYSIWYG editor we supply.

All free listings will be valid for as long as this site exists!

Then select your text again from this txt document and paste it into our editor. You can then use the controls of our editor to format your text as you need.
Up Coming Events Open or Close

Why is my school not listed on your site? Open or Close
That's a good question.
The most likely reason is that we could not find complete details of your school during our research process.
To have your school included in our directory it requires a minimum of:
- School Name
- Landline Telephone Number
- Email Address
We require these minimum requirements so that the chances of including rouge or scam schools in our directory is minimized.
Are you affiliated with the schools in the directory? Open or Close
The simple answer is, no.
ESLCebu.com is an independent ESL resource and has no ties to, or makes no recommendations about any schools listed in the directory. You are advised to make your own inquires to validate any business or contracts that you may enter into.
