Welcome
Hi, and welcome to my adventure.
This adventure has taken children all over the world since 1940 and will take your child anywhere he or she wants to go. It is a journey of self confidence through learning to read and write using the English Language. Every language has sounds that are used to talk, write or read. We listen to sounds everyday. Think of your own Thai language. Unfortunately, while we teach our children to speak we do not teach them to read and hence be able to spell.
Student’s in most schools are taught word pictures

What is expected from the student?
First and for most is to be an active student in class and in all parts of the journey.
How long is the class.
Classes are usually 1 hour in length. However, as none can learn anything by spending an hour a week there will be reading homework.
What is the homework and how long will it take?
Each week students will be given a page of words to read every night on averge it should take about 10 minutes to read. If students are having difficulty they may be given the option of more reading.
Will my child have to pass any tests?
DEFINITELY!, Students will be tested each week on the previous weeks homework. In order to proceed the student must achieve 80%. The reason for the high mark is that in order to be confident your child must have a high standard. Having an 80% chance of being correct instead of a 50% or lower that is allowed in normal schools.

What happens if my child does not get 80%?
Simple we will continue to go over the work. We will look at what the mistakes are and make the necessary corrections until the student is ready to take the next
