Great school with great staff

10/10

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.

2 week intensive Thai language course in Koh Samui

10/10

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!

Excellent language school with an effective technique of learning Thai - Отличная языковая школа с эффективной техникой изучения тайского языка

10/10

TRANSLATION:

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.

Real Thai fast, not to be missed - 实实在在的泰语速成,不容错过

10/10

TRANSLATION:

Because it is like this no shortage of blue sky and blue sky, but also fell in love with the Thai language. Once started, completely stopped.

It is fortunate to be able to learn Thai in this school (especially praise). If you are interested in Thai, and happens to have a particularly interesting and experienced teacher, you will find that learning Thai for Chinese partners is really not a difficult thing, because the Thai language in the grammar and tone rules with some Chinese The similarities.
I and the other four foreign students in the primary goal is to be able to speak Thai in an effective time, and it is Jom (principal and teacher) interesting, professional and efficient teaching methods so that we can speak in the first class speak Thai! The The He is very patient to teach our authentic Thai pronunciation and repeated over and over again to strengthen our mouth muscles and brain memory; he also continue to interact with us, through "he asked me to answer" the way so that we understand faster, Remember the structure of the sentence, and in the process of instantly improve the "say" ability: part of the question, but also part of the answer. When he asked us questions, we did not just answer "yes" or "no", but instead replicate some of his questions and answer him in the form of a "complete sentence". You will find more learning tips and fun in class.

Now I am very excited that I can start talking about Thai, but also full of enthusiasm to continue to learn. Learn this language, it is not your talent, but your passion and have a humorous and professional and pragmatic teacher like Jom, can make it easy for you to speak Thai in the first class. Of course, they have a few other Thai teachers are also very good! Want to learn other languages ​​of small partners, can also come to this school, their teachers are very professional!

Do not love learning a small partner can finally forget to learn, playing with learning, learning will not be difficult! Not much to say, to learn to play together!

ORIGINAL REVIEW:

因为很喜欢这个不乏碧海蓝天的小岛,也爱上了泰语这门语言。一旦开始了,完全停不下来。
确实很幸运能在这所学校学习泰语(特别赞)。如果你对泰语感兴趣,恰巧又有一位特别有趣且资深的老师,你会发现学习泰语对于中国小伙伴来说真的不是一件难事儿,因为泰语在语法和声调规则上与中文有某些的相似之处。
我和另外4位外国同学的首要目标就是能在有效的时间内讲泰语,而正是Jom(校长兼老师)有趣、专业、高效的教学方式让我们在第一节课就能够开口讲泰语!!!他很耐心地教我们正宗的泰语发音并一遍遍地重复,以加强我们嘴部肌肉和大脑的记忆力;他还不断地与我们互动,通过“他问我答”的方式让我们更快的理解、记住句子的结构,并在这个过程中瞬间提高“说”的能力:问句中的部分内容,也是答案中的部分内容。当他问我们问题时,我们不是只回答“是”或者“不是”,而是复制他问题中的部分内容,以“完整句子”的形式回答他。你将在上课时发现更多的学习秘诀与乐趣。
现在我很兴奋自己可以开始讲泰语,也满心热情地继续学习。学好这门语言,重要的不是你的天赋,而是你的热情以及拥有一位像Jom这样的幽默风趣且专业务实的老师,能让你轻而易举地在第一节课上就能够开口讲泰语。当然啦,他们还有其他几位泰语老师也很好呢!想学习其他语言的小伙伴,也可以来这家学校,他们的老师都很专业呢!
不爱学习的小伙伴终于可以忘我地学习了,玩着学,学不会都难!话不多说,来一起学习玩耍吧!
