Why should I choose King’s English?

There are so many English language teachers and English language schools in Thailand and the choice can be daunting. You can rest assured that King’s English will provide you with the best teaching and learning that money can buy. All of our teachers are hand-picked by the CEO. Each applicant for a teaching position at King’s English undergoes a rigorous interview procedure and all qualifications and references are meticulously checked and ratified.

What sets King’s English apart from all the other language schools?

In addition to having excellent teachers we pride ourselves on being able to provide lessons that are fun, innovative and exciting. Our team of teachers have experience in teaching young learners, teenagers, young adults and corporate professionals. Each teacher will design the course specifically for each student or group of students and each course, whether 30 hours or 60 hours in duration, will have a specific set of outcomes linked with it.

How is each student assessed by the teacher?

Each student can opt for the King’s English online assessment test which can be taken at the beginning of the course, mid-way through the course or at the end of the course. The test takes about 45 minutes and each test is different with questions randomly chosen from a test bank of more than 9,000 questions. The test is marked instantly and the score is sent to the student, the student’s parents or the student’s supervisor or training manager at their place of work. In addition to receiving a raw score each student is provided with a narrative report that outlines the skills that the student possesses at the time of taking the test. The report also compares the student’s performance to their equivalent score for IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC and CEFR (Common European Framework). Each test costs 500 THB and can be taken on your PC, laptop, tablet or mobile telephone. Students who do not opt to take the online assessment test will be monitored by the teacher so that their strengths and weakness are identified and further teaching will focus on turning the weaknesses into strengths.

Where will the lessons take place?

Your lessons can take place at a venue chosen by you. It can be at your home, a nearby café or coffee-shop or your place of work. Our teachers are selected so that they can travel any reasonable distance to a place that is most convenient for you.

Do I have to pay for a 30 hour or 60 hour course in advance?

Yes, if that is the length of course you want to book. We are very flexible however; you can book a course for 10 hours, 20 hours, 40 hours, 50 hours or whatever course duration you like. The 30 hour courses and 60 hour courses are our most popular.

Is V.A.T. included in the cost of the King’s English courses?

No. V.A.T. is added to the course fee and is a legal requirement for all registered businesses.

Do you offer trial lessons?

Yes. You can book a 2 hour trial lesson but is must be paid for in advance at the rate of 1,800.00 THB per hour.

What happens if I don’t like the teacher? Are you able to provide a replacement teacher?

This happens very rarely. In the unlikely event that you do not feel that you are happy with the teacher we have provided for you then we will, at no additional charge, provide one, and only one, replacement teacher.

Do you provide learning materials for your courses?

Yes. All learning materials are provided by the teacher and the cost is included in the course fee. If you are studying for a standardised tests such as TOEIC, TOEFL or IELTS then the text book is either provided by you (we will recommend which test preparation book to buy) or we will buy the book for you and the cost of the book will be added to the fee.

What happens if I am late for my lesson and what happens if the teacher is late for the lesson?

If you are late for your lesson then unfortunately that time is lost and cannot be made up. If the teacher is late for the lesson then the time that you have lost will be given to you as part of a future lesson.

Will I be given a certificate for successful completion of my course?

Yes. You can ask to be provided with a certificate of successful completion of your course. The teacher will present you with the certificate or it can be mailed to your home address.

CCovid-19: Tutorial Procedures

King’s English จะดำเนินการต่อและให้ตัวเลือกต่อไปนี้แก่นักเรียนของเราทุกคน:

นักเรียนสามารถทำแบบฝึกหัดผ่านอินเทอร์เฟซการเรียนรู้ออนไลน์เช่น Skype หรือ Zoom

In recent weeks the Covid-19 situation has become increasingly worse and very worrying for all of us. Schools are closed and should be offering online learning to supplement and replace all classroom teaching, homework assignments, examination preparation and project work. We here at King’s English are more than happy to work with students on their school assignments and try to support them in terms of organisation, time management and other guidance as needed.

King’s English will continue to operate and offer the following option to all our students:

Students can have their tutorials delivered by an online learning interface such as Skype or Zoom. Although these methods of teaching and learning will take a little bit of getting used to, they work well, and we have used online teaching and learning techniques for many years. In the past, most of the online teaching and learning occurred when a student was too ill to attend a tutorial but who needed to be taught because end of year, IGCSE, A Level, SAT or IB exams or major school-administered tests were looming. In the current situation, this option is well worthy of consideration. Online tutorials would be scheduled at the same time as their face-to-face counterparts or could be rescheduled if an alternative time is convenient for the student and the tutor.

At King’s English we are always here to discuss any and all matters relating to your son’s or your daughter’s education. Just because we are dealing with a health crisis does not mean that education must stop – you child’s future is as important today as it ever was.

We look forward to hearing from you and let us all hope that the situation improves soon and we will be able to look back on this year in terms such as, “Do you remember when……..”

Best wishes to you all and above all: stay healthy!

Gary King
