Koh Samui Language School • Progress Test Results

Mid-Term Progress Test in English Beginner and Elementary groups

Last week our English Beginner and Elementary students took a progress test, which was a great opportunity for them to check what they had learned and which aspects of the language they still had to brush up on.

Although some students felt nervous and a bit pessimistic about the whole thing, all of them had really impressive results.

We would like to thank everybody for your great performance and participation in class and congratulate you on your high scores! We wish you good luck in your further studies. We, from our side, will do everything to make our classes engaging, effective and fun.

We remind you, that progress tests are an important requirement of immigration for extending your ED visa.

ED Visa News from Koh Samui Immigration: Terms

,

Change of ED visa terms

We would like to inform you that due to recent changes in immigration policy in 2018, terms of ED visa for Thai learners have been extended to 14 months, while terms of ED visa for English learners remain at 12 months as before.

ED visa for Thai learners

Starting from 2018, the first ED visa for Thai learners is issued for a period of 8 months, which comprises studying the Thai language across two levels, from Elementary up to Intermediate. In case you want to  pursue your studies and stay longer in Thailand, there is an opportunity to get a second ED visa for another 6 months. You do not have to leave the country to get the second ED visa! However, a visit to the immigration office every 3 months for an extension stamp is still obligatory.

ED visa for English learners

English learners have an opportunity to study in Thailand for 12 months in total. The term of the first ED visa for English learners is 7 months and the second visa buys you another 5 months. You do not have to leave the country to get the second ED visa! However, a visit to the immigration office every 3 months for an extension stamp is still obligatory.

What to do if I want to study in Thailand longer?

If you wish to stay in Thailand for another year, why not switch to another language? Perfecting the language you already know well or taking up a completely new one might open new horizons and extend your stay in beautiful Koh Samui.

Any concern regarding to your ED Visa, please feel free to drop by at our office Mon – Sat 8:30 – 18:00. Or give us a call 077 248 228 and 086-947-2883 Khun Pat

 

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.
