We teach Thai and English Online and we can also deliver high-level English classes in Bangkok. We deliver private 1 to 1 online training (one teacher to one pupil) for those that are serious about learning the Thai and English languages. The school does not offer scheduled English group training, however, we do offer small private group sessions for corporate, families and friends.
The School History
Thai Language Hut was started by a Thai language teacher and her English native pupil. The language teacher was looking for more freedom to teach Thai in a fun, interactive and effective way. The pupil recognized the teachers’ evident teaching strengths and was highly disappointed in the lack of professionalism in the private teaching market. So the teacher and pupil decided they should go out there and deliver and better language teaching service.
You get the best of both worlds – great Thai and English teachers, advised by a ‘farang’ teacher trained at the University of Cambridge. He later became the European Education Manager (Change Manager) for Hewlett-Packard running education programs for thousands of people. He learned through both success and failure about what is required to motivate students to progress their learning.
School Development to Online Language School
Thai Language Hut was set up as Thai and English Language Consultancy specifically to offer 1 to 1 training. Initially, we set the school up offering just private classroom training to individuals and corporates. This was extremely successful so we added private group corporate training. However, the lack of flexibility of classroom training and the truly terrible Bangkok traffic meant busy business people and ex-pats were missing a large number of their lessons. So, then in 2009, we introduced Online training. We combined this with classroom training for busy travellers and those not conveniently based in Bangkok. We were the first school to offer Online Thai training worldwide.
From 2019 we moved to just deliver Online training. We saw high demand and this combined with the maturity of the technical applications and the networks made it an easy decision.
Thai and English Language Teaching Approach
The founder is not a natural language learner = a real sympathetic interest in helping you learn in the most effective manner. We learn most effectively and are motivated when we use different learning techniques to stimulate learning. If this means going ‘Walk About’ to a shop or a restaurant or to a workplace ‘At Your Desk’ to make the learning experience real …within reason, we will do it. Our Language School calls our interactive approach to language learning Active Learning. We help you learn Thai and English by involving you and interacting with you in different ways. This helps to keep your learning fresh and innovative (virtually). And you will retain more information = learn faster and hopefully enjoy the process.
1 to 1 Training
Thai Language Hut has found learning Thai and English languages is most successfully developed by 1 to 1 training. Tone, pitch, pronunciation and grammar rules can be learned more confidently with 1 to 1 training. In our virtual classroom, you do not have to share your teacher with other students. This allows us to focus on the most important aspect of teaching, you and your needs only. We are pleased to say that our results speak with for themselves. Most students repeat book and are now speaking, reading and writing at all levels and are enjoying the experience. We have a re-booking ratio of 80%.
Teacher and Environment
Our Thai Language School is open and friendly. Students readily absorb both Thai and English language skills in a relaxed but structured environment. All Thai teachers are Thai nationals speaking Bangkok mainstream Thai with excellent English skills. All teachers have degree-level qualifications or equivalent and are highly experienced. Many teachers either teach at international schools or have taught at international schools or Universities in Bangkok.
Thai Language School operates a process of continuous improvement and reviews and acts upon student feedback to the benefit of the Online language school and future students. We welcome all feedback and are genuinely interested in helping you achieve your maximum capability.
Education and more so language learning is like unlocking a new world. By learning a new language you will do more than communicate. You will meet new people and experience a different culture. In turn, you will gain a new perspective on a life that will help you develop as an individual. When you learn a language it is so much more than a literal translation. It is about building your level of understanding about the culture and the people within. For those learning Thai this means understanding the culture of the ‘land of smiles’. For those learning the English language, it is about building knowledge and understanding of modern English culture.
Our language school wants you to enjoy the challenge of exploring languages whilst meeting your educational goals.
