Studying languages on Samui offers an amazing experience to students! Students learn more than just the chosen language from their teachers, they learn from:

The natural environment:

Koh Samui is a cosmopolitan melting pot, attracting budget travelers staying for a month or two in simple beachside bungalows, to the wealthiest holidaymakers dropping in for a weekend at one of the many luxury resort or villa on the many white sand beaches of Koh Samui.

The multicultural community:
With a long history of people from many cultures living together, Samui is a safe place for international students. Samui has a friendly community, with warm weather and delicious food from around the world. As you walk down the street, people will smile and say hello!

The Samui spirit:
We give students many opportunities to become a part of the Samui  community, so you can create life-long friendships. This is a special place to make your second home.

SLS Students:
You will not only learn from your instructors, but also from your classmates. Studying with other students from all over the world will allow you to learn about different cultures around the world as you improve the language you study.
