Koh Samui Language Schools

 

Look! here we found really useful school comparison list It’s in Russian, so we translated it into English.

Many people go to Thailand not only to relax, but also to learn something new.
This article explores options for learning languages on Koh Samui. 

 

By studying at a school in Thailand you can be granted a student visa, which is convenient in allowing you to live in Thailand for a longer period of time than a normal tourist visa. If a child’s parents study in Koh Samui, the child can also obtain a visa known as a Non-O visa, which is a visa for an accompanying family member. 

 

In order to get an education visa, you just need to follow a few simple steps. First and foremost, you must determine the school that you will attend. We will give you all the inside information in this article to help you make an informed choice. Once you have chosen your school, they will provide you with all the documents for the necessary visa and then you can get your head down and start learning. 

 

Below is a list of schools in Koh Samui that are licensed by the MOI (Ministry of Education), whereby admission into the school allows you to obtain a student visa. At the time of writing, July 2017, it was possible to find information about 7 schools issuing education visas in Koh Samui. Of these schools: 

  • Thai solutions has already closed 
  • Walen is closing due to financial loss and is not accepting any new students 
  • The school of Joy is under threat of visa being cancelled due to the sale of documents for an education visa without providing real lessons 

 

The information for each of the researched schools can be found below, followed by a price comparison table.

According to rumors, there is a risk of visas being cancelled for those buying visas only and not attending real classes. During the last two inspections, the officers did not see any classes at the school and were not satisfied.

 

 

We spoke with a student who is currently registered with The School of Joy. They told us: 

“If you are not going to study, but just want to get a visa, the price is only 15,000 baht”

We also spoke with the immigration department who, in accordance with the law, stated: 

“The minimum standard for obtaining an annual visa is 400 hours of training. If requirements are not met, visas will be cancelled”

Tips and Tricks

 

 

We want you to get the most out of learning a language, so don’t limit yourself to the classroom. Why not try some of these tried-and-tested KSTVS language learning tips?

 

Talk to yourself

Name things as you pass them in your house or outside. Read things out loud. Practise, practise, practise.

 

Talk to friends

Ask your friends to practise with you. Have fun, smile, joke, and learn from each other.

 

Listen to music

You’ll hear the language in a fun and memorable way and be able to pick out rhythm and pronunciation better.

 

Make mistakes

Don’t be scared to try out your new skills. You will learn from your mistakes as much as you will from your success. The more you speak the better you will get and the sooner you will be comfortable.

 

Watch movies

Use this as an excuse to watch your favourite movies (or new ones) in the language you’re learning. You’ll pick up new phrases and get used to listening to natural speech.

 

Teach other people

This is a great way to clarify things in your own head and gain confidence in your ability.

 

Introduce a friend

Bring a friend to KSTVS and not only do you get 10% off your next course, but you also get to share your learning experience, which can lead to better success rates. Ask us about our refer a friend policy!
