Our teachers

and their qualifications

We aim to please.

We want you to have the best learning experience possible, so only the best teachers will do. We’re very selective about who joins our team, so if they’ve made the cut you know they’re outstanding!

The right teacher for you.

Whilst we employ full-time native-speaking teachers for each language, experience has taught us that most Thai students in the beginner and lower levels actually learn English faster if their classes are taught by qualified Thai instructors. For this reason, our English for Thai Learners course is taught exclusively by experienced Thai teachers.

Our multilingual teachers also offer more possibilities – Japanese students have the additional options of learning English or Thai with a Japanese teacher and German-speaking students can choose to learn English or Thai with a German teacher on request.

We’re a smart bunch.

All PLS teachers have a bachelor’s degree or higher, have completed an approved teacher education program (TEFL etc) and are approved by the Ministry of Education. It’s not in our nature to stand still, so we have ongoing internal training and regular upskilling sessions for all of our teachers.

Inspirational teachers to motivate you.

We know that great language teachers make all the difference to your study progress. PLS runs its own teacher training centre, which allows us to screen every teacher for their personality and teaching skills. A lot of thought goes into choosing who will be part of our crew. All Patong Language School teachers are exceptional in their ability to motivate and inspire you to learn.
