Mini English Program
is an English program set up in response to the needs of parents who realize the problems Thai students face in learning the English language due to lack of usage of English in real-life situations combined with too few allotted timetabled hours for the study of English. It gives students the necessary confidence, competence and ability in English that is essential for higher study both within the country and abroad.





Models of Learning in Mini English Program

    Students from Primary 1 to Mathayom 6 who participate in the Mini English Program program have an opportunity to learn English everyday for one period with a native English speaker teaching according to the core curriculum. Through learning with a native English speaker, students are able to focus on language skills training in all aspects of listening, speaking, reading and writing and including skills in communication to give students confidence in using English and to foster a positive attitude towards the English language. Extra tuition in grammar is given by Thai teachers in order for students to use English correctly and fluently, which is the main goal of the Mini English Program.
