In our new curriculum, we encourage our students to learn and be familiar with real day-to-day conversations in general subjects. We focus mainly on the high-frequency words and common expressions that you can hear everywhere. We aim to teach our students to be able to speak exactly and absolutely like Thais. In order to reach that level, we also explain the language from the perspecive of culture. Our students will not only speak like Thais but also understand the difference between Thai language and their own languages in terms of grammar points as well as culture points.
A fantastic school in every way. I've had group lessons from three different TSL teachers and have found all to be talented professionals as well as so much fun with it.
The structure of progression through the beginner levels is really well designed to suit the majority, meanwhile the school is total flexibile if too fast/slow. Also re flexibility, the hybrid classes having the option of attendance by video link is invaluable to fit with occasional life stuff.
Finally the TSL office is just full of good eggs who are seemingly happy and able to sort anything you need with maximum efficiency over email or by dropping in
"I studied with TSL for almost one year already, the staff has always been very helpful and available in any circumstance.
Textbooks and teachers are good, but obviously you will have to put your own effort in the learning process, if you are really interested in Thai language.
Now, after one year, I'm quite satisfied about the level that I reached, even if I realize that I could have done better and that I still have a lot to learn.
For my personal good experience I already recommended TSL school to a couple of friends.
"Being loving and passionate for languages is not enough to learn Thai, TSL and its patients teachers will guide you through a journey where you'll not only feel you'll grasp the language, but you'll understand more about the elegant and deep Thai culture.
Definitely recommended, Thai learning made a breeze!
Happily enrolling for the second year now!
"Its been over a year since I started studying Thai at TSL. Started with book 1, get through R&W 3 levels, and now I am at Book 11. Every level I did, I studied with kru Ang and hope to continue my studying journey with her. She has a teaching style that suits my learning preference. Especially I like when she finds funny articles, stories, tik toks or videos which have a "speaking" style. We read it together and discuss it in class. It helps to get used to more spoken Thai also.
I remember searching for schools all over Thailand that offer online courses and luckily found TSL. At that time I liked the fact that they have a Youtube channel, so I was able to get a little familiar with teachers, facebook group also made a good impression on me.
I would 100% recommend TSL to anyone who wants to study Thai. Staff, learning materials, quality, everything is great."
"If you're looking to learn Thai, I highly recommend checking out this school. From my personal experience, this school offers top-notch language instruction that is both effective and enjoyable.
The teachers are all native Thai speakers who are passionate about teaching and sharing their culture with students. They're also very patient and encouraging, creating supportive environment that makes it easy to learn.
One thing I particularly love about this school is that they offer a variety of class timings and mediums. You have the option of attending classes at the school or learn online.
Whether you're a beginner or an advanced learner, you'll find a class that's just right for you. They also offer private lessons for those who want more personalized attention.
Overall, I think the Thai Language School is a fantastic choice for anyone who wants to learn Thai. The overall atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Give it a try – you won't be disappointed!"
"Excellent language school with the option to do online as well as classroom courses. School material is updated/ improved on a regular basis. They. Even have qr codes on the books that will link you to the relevant lesson on YouTube!"
"TSL language teachers have been exceptional. With their deep knowledge, patience, and interactive teaching methods, they have made learning Thai an enjoyable and rewarding experience. Their passion for the language is infectious, and their dedication to our progress has truly helped us master this beautiful language. Highly recommended!"
"I highly recommend TSL to anyone looking to study. The teachers are brilliant! They’re very knowledgeable in Thai and English, which makes the sometimes challenging task of finding meaning to things a lot more easier. I’ve been studying with Kru Yu for the past few months. It’s been very insightful and enjoyable, Kru Yu has taught me a lot in a small period of time and I can’t recommend her enough. The TSL office staff are the most organised and hardworking group of individuals I have come across from all my time in Thailand. They know exactly what they’re doing and when it comes down to the paperwork and visa side of things, they’re very well prepared and helpful. You can tell that everyone in TSL wants to be there and enjoys what they do."
"I am very happy with my experience at TSL Chiang Mai. I have attended a few Thai language schools in the area and this one is by far the most legit.
The teachers and staff are amazing and you can tell they truly care about the students and their experience. I think the curriculum is put together in a way that you will be learning very useful words and phrases that you can use in everyday situations.
What makes this school stand out is the Saturday activities. We often take trips around Chiang Mai and to neighboring cities to visit temples, museums and try new foods as well as learn about Thai culture. This is a great way to meet new people and build relationships with other students as well as with the staff. Big shout out to Kru.Ang for being a great host on Saturdays.
As for the E.D Visa, I was amazed at how much help I got from the school to get mine. It can be a tough process to do on your own but with the help from the staff it was a breeze and I didn't have any issues from immigration.
Lastly I would like to compliment the owner of the school who has always been available anytime I have had any questions or if I had an issue. He always attends every Saturday activity and you can tell he cares about the students that attend his school and their experience aswell."
"I've studied with TSL for quite a while now, and they've hands down been the best school I've been able to find in Thailand.
They truly care about education and development of each and every student, and the teachers are top rate.
It's more than just a language school - it's a a family and a place to gain knowledge and experience with language and culture.
I highly recommend it for anybody."
"I've been studying in TSL for over a year and enjoy it a lot. The staff crew is exceptional, very friendly and helpful in all the visa-related bureaucracy. The pace of study feels comfortable, both not too hardcore so it doesn't disrupt your slow living in Chiang Mai but also intense enough that you constantly feel the progress. The schedule, especially at the lower levels, is very adjustable, with joining by Zoom always being an option. What you'd really like to attend in person tho are the Thai Culture classes where the teachers share the slices of culture they're familiar with be it cooking some specific Thai dish or a trip to some village you would probably never discover alone. And last but not least there are students from all around the world in TSL so it's also a great place to get some extra cultural exchange and practice other languages with those who speak them natively."
"I joined TSL's 1 year education visa course 9 months ago with a little rough and ready Thai under my belt that I had gathered while teaching English in Chiang Mai. Studying with TSL has been a joy right from the start. All levels are catered for and I feel that during my time here, my basic ability has become more polished and I am more able to understand the Thai people that I meet around Chiang Mai.
Kru Ang, my teacher throughout, has a style that suits my learning preference. She pushed the class through the basics and then dragged us across the hot coals of reading and writing, and onward to the complexities of sentence structuring. I never believed I would be able to understand Thai text to the extent that she has made possible, and her willingness to share ordinary phrases and colorful expressions continues to add to my understanding and enjoyment of common Thai. There is wide selection of professional teachers at TSL, and I think that there is a teaching style to suit everyone.
The culture class is not only informative and fun, but is also a social event. I am now proficient at making somtam, carving fruit and parading through the streets while playing the symbols at an annoyingly loud volume, thanks to this weekly class.
From a visa procurement perspective, the service provide has been faultless. The office staff are approachable, efficient and friendly. I recommend this school, without hesitation, to anyone who wants to enjoy learning Thai.
Thank you TSL."
Our school consists of fifteen classrooms, an office, and a break area. Ten classrooms are used for larger group classes, while the five smaller rooms provide privacy for private and semi-private tutoring. In the larger classrooms, you will notice that our classrooms are structured differently than most schools. To incorporate the principles of the adult learning model, our classrooms feature large tables in order to encourage discussion and peer interaction.
