English for Thai learners
Our team of master word-slingers have created an entire series of study books for Thai beginner students. The first books in the series are ‘Read English’ and ‘English Writing Practice’. These books are aimed at beginner students who need to start with the basics (free online audio is available for the reading book).
Next in the series is ‘English Foundation’ study book and workbook, which teach correct sentence construction and work up to telling the time, asking and answering questions etc.
The final 8 course books are our ‘Easy-Going English’ levels 1 and 2, which advance gradually, ensuring students receive a complete grounding in the use of basic, everyday English. We include plenty of exercises so students can put what they’ve learned to the test.
Thai language study books
We produce our own sought-after and much-copied range of study books for learning to speak, read and write Thai. Our ‘Thai Foundation Course’ book is used in our 2-week introductory course before joining an Easy-Going Group. ‘Thai Tenses’ is a must-read for intermediate students.
If you’re eager to try your hand at reading and writing Thai, we have books to help you do just that. We promise it’s so much easier than you think! Our ‘Read Thai’ book is the most complete and concise guide on the market for learning to read Thai script. ‘Write Thai’ helps you practise writing the alphabet while you learn the letters.
Our conversational ‘Speak Thai’ books using phonetics are perfect for anyone who wants to focus solely on speaking Thai.
English For All and private English lessons
Patong Language School publishes our very own pre-elementary level materials, comprising a study book and workbook. The study book introduces students to fundamental grammar using relevant and engaging content, while the workbook contains a range of exercises to revise and build upon this. These books prepare the student for further study with the Headway series (below).
We use the best-selling New Headway 4th edition series for our Elementary, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate and Upper-Intermediate level courses. These four books combine the best of traditional methods with current techniques, using a clear and structured approach to grammar.
For students who take private lessons, we have a wide range of materials available for all levels. Your teacher will help you choose the most suitable book based on your level and personal learning objectives.
Our expert linguists have produced the beginner-level ‘Deutsch A1’ book for use in our German group class. Other books are available for private lessons.
We have 4 self-produced books for Japanese language study, covering a range of levels. They are available in both Thai and English versions. Your teacher will help you pick out the most suitable materials for you.
