oh Samui Language & Vocational School, founded back in 2003, pioneered the language school industry in Koh Samui, leading the way to become the first fully licensed language school of its calibre on the island. Since then we have won the ‘Quality School Award’ from the Ministry of Education three times, making us the first school in South Thailand to do so.

Our professional and high standards quickly made us the language school of choice for both children and adults, offering up to date, affordable courses in Thai & English using a combination of conversational and textbook teaching.

Due to our excellent relationship with the Ministry of Education we can help you attain an Education Visa, also known as a ‘non-immigrant ED visa’, which can allow you to live in this beautiful country for up to 5 years!

Longest running school

Due to our institute having been open longer than our competitors, we have had more time to perfect our school. Our language school was the first of its type on Samui, giving us more time and experience to perfect our teaching methods.

Thai and English owned

Having both Thai and English owners, we get the best out of both mentalities in their approaches to school management. Which can be felt in our style, values and interaction with our students.
