I should have made it clear that this was foreign student only.

Yes, we have Thailand students, both adults and kids. Not as many as we would like, as I have previously stated.

Hua Hin people do not have any interest in foreign language. My dear wife said that the locals say this is the "king's town" so we do not have to learn languages. I probably agree. You go down the road to Pranburi and there is a waiting list to get into English classes. The same in Cha Am and Petchaburi.

And an excellent student at that.
But his attitude has not yet changed from UK upbringing to being a Hua Hin local.

That's good :D In the same way as I'll always be a Plymouthian (left in 1982), I hope he never forgets his roots.

Hi Bapak - I'm sure this has been discussed/asked previously (so apologies in advance), but with changes being made by the army "regime", what are the requirements now to qualify for an "Education Visa"? Are there restrictions on age/status etc.? I assume it's a 1 year visa?

Also, I understand/was sure I had read that you have a "sister school" somewhere near Pranburi - is this correct, or has the Hua Hin school moved? Or then again, am I completely mistaken??!! :oops:

Thanks in advance.

:cheers: :cheers:

Hi Peter.. Have not noticed you around much lately... or perhaps I have not been looking hard enough.

Ed Visa requirements in real terms have not really changed a lot. The problem is, as always, every Thai Consulate seem to make their own rules on requirements. In the main, we provide documents that generally satisfies them with the exception of Singapore. Singapore require 5 hours per day for 5 days in the week. That makes about 1,300 hours for the year. Just the cost of this makes it impossible for prospective students.

Also, just to clear up a misconception.... I am speaking as far as Sirada- The Learning Centre is
concerned. Many people comment that young people come just to get a visa. The vast majority of our students are over 40 years of age... they are mostly studying Thai (or in some cases, English) as they are planning on Retirement here, or are married to a Thai and have no plans to live elsewhere.

Re Pranburi. No, we have not moved our base in Hua Hin. Pranburi is a branch. Located in a new building and at present being fitted out. Planned opening is 01 November. Full details soon, but will be offering same program as at our Hua Hin school.
