I studied at Patong Language School in February 2019. I'm from Russia and 62 years old. I started learning English on my own more than 10 years ago. From time to time I attended language courses in my city Saratov. I have a certain vocabulary and theoretical knowledge of English grammar. However, there were no practical skills of "speaking". Finally, I decided to choose a school of spoken English for adults meet several criteria: 1.Individual lessons with native speakers 2.Proper formation of groups, taking into account the level of training of students 3.Price range of courses 4. The opportunity to combine study with living in a warm climate and rest on the sea. I chose Patong Language School in Phuket. I liked the location of the school – in the best part of Patong, in the European quarter on the first line 5 minutes from the beach The cost of training was moderate, which is a significant factor for people from Russia. I liked the idea of the school – "no politics!" it avoids conflict situations and helps communication between students from different countries. We talked a lot outside of school, which was also a good conversational practice I had 2 wonderful teachers Em from the UK and John from the USA, with whom I worked alternately. In my opinion, this is the perfect combination, because each teacher has his own individual style and preferences, and I got experience with teachers of "English" and "American English". I liked that my teachers did not constantly point to my mistakes, but helped me to overcome my barriers. They corrected me in a timely and friendly manner. As a result, I felt comfortable and a week later began to speak quite fluently and confidently. In addition, both Em and John love their work, love people, they are very open and friendly. I can say they share their souls with the students and are very happy with their success. I received not only attentive and friendly teachers, but also great friends. I went to school for about 4 weeks. I had 1-2 private lessons in the morning with native speakers and 2 group lessons in the afternoon. The group included students aged 16 to 65 from Japan, Spain, Italy, Russia, Venezuela, Thailand, Slovakia. I got a lot of experience in perception of different accents and communication with representatives of different countries and cultures. Initially, I joined the group Elementary, but after a week I felt a significant progress in "speaking" and moved to the group RGE-intermediate. I wasn't sure I could speak English in 4 weeks. However, the result exceeded my expectations. I speak basic English fluently and continue to study it at the Intermediate level in my city Saratov. The time spent at school was not only useful for me, but also happy. I wish prosperity to the school, success to my dear teachers Em and John and new friends from different countries who shared these wonderful 4 weeks with me.

All the teachers had their own styles that offered great and different perspectives on the culture here as well as learning styles.
I really looked forward to going every day. I laughed a ton, learned so much. At 4 months I was seriously able to communicate more than I thought I would be able to.
