Who is the annual weekend program designed for?
The weekend program is designed for students who regularly attend Thai schools and wish for their children to have a truly international school learning experience at a fraction of the regular tuition fee of a high quality international school.
What is the benefit of the annual weekend program?
The annual weekend program is a year long program for students to develop their English ability skills (correct pronunciation, develop the ability to understand and the confidence to speak and use English) and learn most of the same subjects that are taught in our regular international school program.
Apart from English skills, we also promote creative and critical thinking abilities where students will be constantly encouraged to give their ideas and opinions as well as to be curious and ask a lot of “why” questions. It is our goal to help them to develop the confidence in themselves as capable learners and to get over the fear of making mistakes by trying new things and asking a lot of questions.
When can I expect to see development I expect my child to have after attending the annual full or half day weekend program?
This varies from child to child but generally after about 8-12 consecutive weeks of attendance, parents will start to see confidence develop in their children in speaking and an increase in the ability to understand English at a more complex level than what they started with.
Students who enroll in the full day program will show faster progress as they spend a full 6 hours in an international English speaking environment whereas half day students spend 3 hours each week with us.
Can I enroll anytime?
While it is best to enroll from the beginning of our program (starts every June) for your child’s progress and easy adjustment to the program as well as from a value standpoint, it is also possible to start anytime during the year. The tuition fee will be prorated to the start date.
What is the benefit of summer camp?
The summer camps keeps the children occupied in a productive and fun way during the weeks that their regular Thai full time school is on break. They get to immerse themselves in an international school learning environment in an intensive schedule of 5 days a week.
Is there anything special about the summer camps?
Yes. Our summer camps are special because each summer camp will have its own unique theme or culminating project. Themes and projects offered at each summer camp will be different. Example themes for camps include: English Public Speaking, Sports, Performance, Gardening, Outdoor Learning, etc.
