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!
