Immigration requirement for your ED visa: English and Thai progress tests

Adult Classes

Progress tests are a part of every course and will take place every three months

A warm and homely atmosphere created by our teachers in the classroom, topped up with stunning beauty of a tropical island, makes learning foreign languages in Koh Samui so appealing.
There is nothing we take more seriously than providing our students with the highest quality education. Yet we understand that just sitting at a desk and staring at the textbook the whole class is a thing of yesterday, and all our teachers do their best to make their lessons feel more like a friends’ get-together rather than a tiring academic experience.

So why take a progress test?

The mere recollection of school or university tests and the prospect of taking another one here at KSTVS makes a lot of adult students flinch.

Number one piece of advice: don’t panic!

No one will give you bad marks or judge you if you make a mistake or don’t complete the test in time. Look at it from another angle – a progress test is an excellent opportunity for you to see your strongest points and see which aspects you should work on harder. Knowing where you are at learning a language gives you a sense of achievement and satisfaction.  It is also a perfect way to compare your current level with that of a few months ago – you might be surprised!

 Requirement of Immigration

In connection with the recent tightening of immigration rules, taking a progress test every three months is a necessary condition for the extension of your ED visa.

Agreement

, , , , , , , , , ,

Let’s agree!

 

Student and School Agreement

 

Please take time to read our Student and School Agreement so that we are all ‘on the same page’.

It’s important for us to ensure we are working together, allowing both students and the school to realise their full potential.

Our agreement is a binding document which every student is required to sign.

 

 

‘on the same page’  is a commonly used idiom in English, but what does it mean?

  • Thinking in a similar way  e.g ‘Sarah called the meeting to make sure everyone was on the same page.’
  • Usage notes: usually said about efforts made together to solve a problem
  • Related vocabulary: on the same wavelength

Learning should be fun

, , , , ,

 

 

Learning can and should be fun

This isn’t a statement said simply from a moral standing, but out of scientific research too.

When you learn something new, a chemical called dopamine shoot through your brain. It’s what makes us feel happy. Our body feels rewarded, which gives us motivation to repeat whatever caused it.

The reason for this electro-chemical connection between learning and reward is that our brains have obviously been designed to have fun through learning!

Even the most boring grammar point can be exciting. Today, we learnt about commas in our advanced class. Take a look at how much fun we had (and learn the rules about commas at the same time)!
