Choosing a language school to learn a new language on the beautiful island of Koh Samui should be a pleasant experience! You should strive to get both a high quality service and an enjoyable experience at the same time.
Here are a few things to consider and loopholes to look out for:
Why us | Class size
Some schools are known for having very large classes where a personal touch goes out the window. At SLS, our class sizes range from 1 – 8 people, ensuring every student gets the personal attention he or she needs in a comfortable learning environment.
Why us | Qualified tutors
Although this may be hard to validate, it’s worth taking the time to do. Some schools have unqualified tutors that they enroll as students themselves and then have these students teach other students. This is both problematic in that you might not receive high quality tutoring, as well as the risk that immigration will expel the ‘tutor’ from the country, resulting in regular new tutors taking over the class.
Why us | Sticker price
Certain schools attract students on a low sticker price, however they fail to mention that additional costs will be charged for learning material, official documentation needed to acquire the relevant visa, as well as additional fees for standard documentation required should the student wish to open a bank account or get a Bangkok Airways resident card. We’ve heard that these additional fees usually range between BHT500 – BHT1,000 per document required.
Finding a school that fits your overall objective might seem harder now than before reading the post.
