We have trained tens of thousands of students in new languages, and offer advantages that other local language schools simply can’t provide: a developed language learning system, customised study materials, experienced and qualified native teachers, comfortable air-conditioned classrooms, and we are right next to the beach!
In 1983 Patong Language School was the first language school to be granted a private school license to operate in Phuket. Many schools have come and gone in this time, but Patong Language School remains the leader in the field. We have helped more students learn a language and improve their communication skills than any other language school on the island.
Our materials, developed over 30 years of language training, have been tried, tested and proven to work. We focus on keeping learning as simple and fast as possible, ensuring topics are interesting and relevant so that our students are 100% confident in speaking a new language.
THAILAND’S FIRST QUALITY AUDITED PRIVATE SCHOOL
Patong Language School is the only private school in Thailand to pass the Office of Private Education (OPEC) quality assurance audit – your guarantee of top quality tuition.
OPEC is a government department under the Thai Ministry of Education with responsibility for the registration of private schools and training facilities. OPEC used Patong Language School as a testbed for its newly introduced quality audit scheme in 2009. Schools and training establishments throughout Thailand underwent compulsory audits in 2010 and 2011.
The Ministry and OPEC were convinced that using PLS as a test run for their auditing procedures would be an ideal test of their system and auditors. The Ministry is well aware of the high standards our centre operates to and made us their first choice for this new quality approval system.
Experienced, qualified teachers
All our courses are taught by experienced, native-speaking Thai teachers. We produce our own Thai study books and materials, which we have developed over more than 30 years of teaching Thai to foreigners.
Whether you wish to learn alone or in a group class, to learn only conversational Thai or to learn to read and write Thai, to progress quickly or to take your time, Patong Language School has a course to suit you!
