Translated Review:
Mind Your Language Koh Samui is a really good school, who really cares about their students and really wants to learn how to speak Thai. Always gluttonous teachers who are happy, funny, and possitive. Jom & Chiida are great! Fewer people are allowed to look for. You always feel so welcome to school, Chida and Jom are so helpful.
Can highly recommend this school!!

Original Review:
Mind Your Language Koh Samui är en jätte bra skola, som verkligen bryr sig om sina elever och vill verkligen lära oss att prata thailändska. Alltid jättesnälla lärare som är glada, roliga, och possitiva. Jom & Chiida är toppen! Snällare människor får man leta efter. Man känner sig alltid så välkommen till skolan, Chida och Jom är så hjälpsamma.
Kan starkt rekommedera denna skola!!

The school is great. I'm on a ED visa and am taking 8 hours of Thai language classes a week for the next year. The Administrator and Coordinator, Jom and Sharon, went the extra mile to help me acquire the original visa and getting each visa extension so I never had to worry about it. My Thai Speaking teacher, Cheeda, is very helpful and patient with everyone in the class. Not all students are going to learn at the same pace and Cheeda works well with everyone. My Reading and Writing Thai class was very intimidating at first and it seemed I would never be able to learn it. However, as time past I found that repeated reenforcement of the rules just sunk in without me knowing it. I have to thank my amazing teacher Bonus for being patient with me and answering all my questions. I would definitely recommend Mind Your Language School to anyone.

How can this program be improved?
I would really enjoy some Thai cultural information sprinkled into the lessons. I think it would help with cultural understanding and appreciation of the Thai language.

I completed the intensive Thai course in June and was absolutely amazed with the result, Jom was the best teacher I've ever had! His teaching style was the best I could have ever hoped for. His focus is on repetition, muscle memory and military style drilling! I was never the best student at school but with Jom I was 100% present for 5 hours per day for the 10 days I was with him.

Jom has the unique ability to keep you in the zone ensuring you WILL learn the language. He is passionate on what he does and that is the key with anything in life... if you are passionate about something, then you will be good at it!

I've already signed up for level 2 and I can't wait, it's been the best school experience of my life! Thank Jom, you're the best!

Hello
The course is beautiful and very useful. I participated in it and the visa procedures were easy and did not need much preparation. The school offers teaching and teaching at a very good level and its teaching methods are entertaining and fast learning. And depends on the repetition and conservation. I feel they are all members of my family.

I was engaged in intensive courses (50 hours of classes, 5 hours a day). I really enjoyed it and I feel great progress in my learning of the Thai language.

I live in Thailand for 3 years and before that I tried to learn the language myself in different ways, but I did not achieve any special result. Heard many good reviews about this school, and now I want to recommend it too.

This school works on a special technique with a special emphasis on muscle memory, i.e. At lessons we practically all time talked or repeated for the teacher. Since the second day of classes, I began to understand, in part, what the Thais around me are talking about, a very interesting feeling, especially after several years of living in the country.

For 50 hours we studied the bases with which you can make orders in a restaurant, bargain in the market and in the store, talk about yourself and find out about the interlocutor, talk about time on the clock and dates, talk about the past, the future and the present, and the structures Proposals. those. These are the bases from which it is interesting to begin, because They are most easily used in everyday life.

At the lessons we laughed a lot and every day of classes flew very quickly, even despite the 5 hour duration.

The school is very classy atmosphere, all very friendly and smiling. Classes with air conditioning. There is coffee and tea for those who wish, as well as a refrigerator.

It seemed to me that the Russian speakers should be easier to learn Thai, so there are a lot of sounds similar to Y, Y, Y (which are not in most European languages) and P is practically spoken, like in Russian.

The school issued a special textbook, notebooks, just take a pencil or pen.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:

Я занималась на интенсивных курсах (50 часов занятий, по 5 часов в день). Мне очень понравилось и я чувствую огромный прогресс в своем изучение тайского языка.

Я живу в Таиланде уже 3 года и до этого разными способами пыталась выучить язык сама, но никакого особого результата не добилась. Слышала много хороших отзывов об этой школе, и теперь хочу тоже ее порекомендовать.

Эта школа работает по специальной технике с особым уклоном на мышечную память, т.е. на уроках мы практически все время разговаривали или повторяли за преподавателем. Уже со второго дня занятий, я начала понимать, частично, о чем разговаривают тайцы вокруг меня, очень интересное ощущение, особенно после нескольких лет проживания в стране.

За 50 часов мы изучили базы, с помощью которых можно делать заказы в ресторане, торговаться на рынке и в магазине, рассказывать о себе и узнавать о собеседнике, говорить о времени на часах и датах, как говорить о прошлом, будущем и настоящем, и структуры предложений. т.е. именно те базы с которых интересно начинать, т.к. их проще всего использовать в повседневной жизни.

На уроках мы много смеялись и каждый день занятий пролетал очень быстро, даже не смотря на 5 часовую длительность.

В школе царит очень классная атмосфера, все очень приветливые и улыбчивые. Классы с кондиционерами. Есть кофе и чай для желающих, так же, как и холодильник.

Мне показалось, что русскоговорящим должно быть проще учить Тайский язык, так в нем много звуков похожих на Ы,Й,Ё (которых нет в большинстве Европейских языков) и Р произносится практически, как на русском.

В школе выдаются фирменные учебники-тетрадки, достаточно только взять с собой карандаш или ручку.

Yes, I recommend
