Я учусь в MYL уже больше года. Тщательно выбирала школу, смотрела содержание курсов, подходы к работе. И я не ошиблась с выбором. Курсы недешёвые, но вы получаете высокое качество. Есть рассрочка оплаты. Директор школы Jom преподаёт вместе с остальными. Он увлечён своей работой, по-настоящему любит то, что делает. Таких встречается мало, и это очень важно и для руководителя, и преподавателя.
Также в MYL основательно подходят к выбору и персонала - преподавателей, и студентов. Со мной провели интервью, перед тем, как зачислить. Какие у меня цели, ожидания от обучения, что я делаю сама, чтобы прокачивать язык. Кого попало они берут, только людей с мотивацией к учёбе. Это здорово!
Сами программы основаны на максимальной разговорной практике.
Год я изучала английский, с native. Подняла уровень с intermediate до продвинутого upper. Пропал языковой барьер. Мне нестрашно теперь общаться с англичанами, ирландцами, автралийцами.
А теперь я начала учить тайский. Перед началом обучения было немного страшно и волнительно, что я вообще ничего не пойму. Но уроки проходят легко и даже весело :) Занятия проводит тайка, и она свободно говорит по-английски. Ты начинаешь говорить на тайском буквально с первого урока. А объяснения материала опять же проходят на английском.
В общем, хотите изучить язык с нуля или здорово его улучшить, вам в Mind your language :)

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Обязательно пройдите интервью на уровень знания языка. Вы можете себя недооценивать или переоценивать.

I’ve been studying Thai at M.Y.L. for 8 months. It’s been so enjoyable I’ve signed up for another 8 months. In addition to studying conversation I’ve been studying reading and writing. I thoroughly recommend M.Y.L.

In order to learn Thai a transliteration system is necessary at the beginning. The one used at M.Y.L. is very natural for English speakers to read. I’ve tried a few of these systems, some of which require studying before studying Thai itself. The one used at M.Y.L. is the best I’ve seen.

There are lots of courses on offer, from conversation only to advanced reading and writing. The teachers are certified, speak excellent English and keep a good balance between education and fun. Classes have about 6 students, usually of different nationalities.

Of course, to study Thai you’ll need an Education Visa, which the school can arrange. M.Y.L. has a good relationship with Samui Immigration and will only issue genuine visas.

If you have no intention of learning Thai but want an extended holiday in Samui don’t go to the school and expect them to apply for a fraudulent visa. They won’t! You’re wasting their time, your own time and making it more difficult for genuine students.

However, if you’re a genuine student you’ll learn Thai, meet new people and have a lot of fun in the process. I can thoroughly recommend M.Y.L. school.

My wife Vicky and I have been learning Thai with Jom and Mind for past 3 months. It has been a humble and most motivation experience with learning a new language. Our personal goal is to be able to speak and read fluently as we would like to be settled here in thailand with a business. Mind Your Language provides us both with the motivation and confidence to converse what we have learnt each week with local Thais. We finish our lessons each week learning and practise our learnings in our every day day life. Jom and Mind has the ability and patience to repeat and ensure a word or pronunciation is proper. The ability to converse with the locals, we can see the immediate reaction of appreciation and openness in sharing with us their thoughts besides getting through the basics in a foreign land. The learning journey has been most professional, tailored, relatable and motivational.

Mind Your Language est une école sérieuse et très bien organisée, dont le personnel enseignant et administratif est très disponible et à l'écoute. La méthode d'enseignement apporte de bons résultats en peu de temps, ce qui vous permettra de vous débrouiller rapidement lorsque vous rencontrer des gens qui ne comprennent pas l'anglais. L'ambiance est sympathique. Il existe plusieurs formules allant de 1 semaine intensive à 12 mois, permettant l'apprentissage du thai parlé (phonétique) à la lecture et à l'écriture. Les classes comprennent peu d'élèves, ce qui facilite l'apprentissage. J'ai choisi de suivre un cour individuel ce qui a l'avantage de donner de la flexibilité si vous devez déplacer ou sauter un cours en cas d'empêchement. Je recommande Mind Your Language à quiconque veut apprendre le thai en ayant du plaisir.
