Do you provide English as Additional Language (EAL) support?
Yes, quite often students at Krabi International School are not native English speakers and some may have no English language skills when they first arrive. Our small class sizes will allow for individualised attention by class teachers. In addition, we will be offering extra-curricular support classes. Our intention is that students should have obtained the language skills needed to fully participate in class within a short period of time.

Yes, it is necessary for all students to learn Thai. For those students that are Thai Nationals we are also including ‘Thai as a first language’ into our curriculum. We are also offering Chinese as a third language.
