What I liked the most was the atmosphere during the courses. The teachers really wanted to teach us English, and the students were very motivated.

The country, the city, the location of the school in this city and the quality of education have made me forget my wrong choice regarding accommodation. .. (Isanook residence to avoid for long stays)
Having experimented 4 other places / schools, I was a little disappointed by the lack of ambience in the school and especially between students. Despite the efforts of the staff of the school I did not feel real enthusiasm on the part of the students ...

I would highlight two aspects: - Very small groups. Although there were about 50-100 students of Thai origin in the school, we were only about 10 foreign students. We were grouped into three groups. In my group (upper-intermediate) we were 4 students during the first week and only 3 students during the second and third week. - The teaching methodology. Class sessions were taught by different teachers. During the three weeks I had 7-8 different teachers and everyone knew at all times what content had been worked in the previous classes and what content they had to teach.
It would be great that the school had a program of social activities or a person responsible for it. The only social activity conducted by the school once a week was organised by the teachers themselves every Wednesday evening and consisted of a dinner, a game of bowling or going out to a pub.
