Advanced English class

Koh Samui Language School policy allows you to enroll in any course at any time. It gives you an opportunity to join a group of the appropriate level without having to wait for the beginning of the next course. Our teachers are real professionals and help new students adapt fast, so there is usually no problem about that.
However, you may find yourself in a group of students who are already half way through the book and you might realize that you are the only one in the class who can’t make head or tail of what is going on.

Our teachers have got a few tips which can be helpful for you to find your way about and catch up with the rest of the group easier.

Don’t Panic

The group might be in the middle of a topic, practicing the grammar and vocabulary they got familiar with in the previous lesson. If you feel lost and understand next to nothing, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you are in the wrong level group. The teacher will not be able to ignore all other students and focus on you personally, but don’t feel shy to ask for some extra help if you need it. And when a new topic is introduced, you might see that it is not that difficult after all.
If you do realize that you are much weaker (or stronger) than your group-mates, you can try and switch for another level.

Participate

Be open, don’t be shy to say a few words about yourself in the beginning of the class. Keep in mind that it is totally fine to make mistakes or misunderstand something. Relax, look around, there will definitely come an activity about which you will feel more confident. So, there is your chance to blend in, just go ahead and grab at it.

Do Self-Study

At the end of each book, you can find the summary and practice of what has been studied in class. Once you know which module the group is at, you can go to the corresponding pages, read the brief explanation of grammar rules and see the list of active vocabulary which the group has already learnt. The course is designed in such a way that the previously studied material is used and recycled in the following lessons, so, studying a bit on your own will help you to feel more at ease.

Ask Teacher

Should you have any questions that you can’t clarify on your own, feel free to ask your teacher during the break, before or after the class. Our teachers are always there for you and will be happy to help.

Catch-up Classes

If you feel desperate and understand that all the tips above are not working and you are still far behind the rest of the group, you might want to take a few one-to-one classes. It will cost you extra, but the teacher will be able to focus on your weaker points and, in a few sessions, will cover all the topics already studied by your group-mates, which will make your further studying much more efficient and enjoyable.

We hope that these tips will help you have a most wonderful learning experience in Koh Samui Language School. See you in the classroom!
