General English Language Courses

At David Game Management School, we recognise that learners in Thailand require English language training for academic, employment and general purposes. David Game College Group has a long and proud history of teaching English to international students. For example, the Group’s Kensington Academy of English in the UK (www.kensingtonacademy.com), which is accredited by the British Council, has been conducting English language programmes at all levels for students from different parts of the world at its London premises since 1978.

The members of our teaching faculty, who have many years of experience in teaching English to non-native speakers, will pay special attention to the nuances associated with the learning of English as a second language. In keeping with our commitment towards paying attention to the individual needs of our students, we conduct courses at different levels:

  • Introductory
  • Basic
  • Intermediate
  • Advanced



Introductory Level

The English language course at the introductory level focuses on building elementary level competence in the learners. As suggested by its title, the main purpose of the course is to provide an introduction to English language to those students who have had very little or no training in their past.

Given that most learners at this level will require translation and interpretation in order to arrive at a better understanding of the teaching that takes place, we ensure that both native and international teachers are used in a combined manner. This approach enables us to expedite the learning experiences of the students so that at the end of the course, it will become possible for them to become comfortable with the fundamentals of the language in the areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking skills with specific emphasis on pronunciation and basic grammar.

Regular homework and assessments are part of the programme. At the end of the course, all learners will be required to undertake a progress test. Upon successful completion, David Game College, UK will issue a Report and a Certificate of Achievement. Students will also have the opportunity to progress on to the next level English language course at David Game Management School.

Course Duration: 3 months


Basic Level

The English language course at the basic level embraces a participative teaching method. We seek to ensure that the learners are able to develop their grammar and vocabulary in order to achieve a satisfactory level of competence in reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. At the basic level, the teaching will take place in the medium of English language, although where required, students will be given support and assistance in the Thai language so as to facilitate interpretation.

Continuous monitoring of progress is made by way of weekly assessments that test specific aims in relation to grammar and vocabulary. Feedback given by the teachers will enable learners to strive for continuous step-by-step improvement.

At the end of the course, all learners will be required to undertake a progress test. Upon successful completion, David Game College, UK will issue a Report and a Certificate of Achievement. Successful students can also progress to the intermediate level English language course at David Game Management School.

Course Duration: 3 months


Intermediate Level

Students who have completed the basic level English language course at David Management School or those who already have previously passed a recognised English language test will be able to join the intermediate course. It is available both to learners who wish to pursue it as a standalone programme and to those who are already enrolled on another academic course at David Game Management School.

As with the basic level course, the intermediate programme centers on the participative approach towards teaching. Development of language skills is promoted through involving learners in group activities and via regular assignments.

As with other courses, all students will be required to undertake a progress test at the end of the programme and upon successful completion, David Game College, UK will issue a Report and a Certificate of Achievement. Learners who complete the intermediate level course will have opportunities both in terms of securing jobs that require a certain degree of proficiency of the English language and in terms of pursuing further studies.

Course Duration: 3 months


Advanced Level

At the advanced level, we ensure that our teaching and learning strategies are geared towards preparing our learners to eventually sit for the IELTS Test or other English standardised examinations. This is mainly because all students who pursue academic courses at David Game Management School need to take a recognised English Language proficiency test before applying to a University abroad for further studies.

At the advanced level, our teaching and learning strategy is based on two premises: facilitating the improvement of our students’ ability to enhance their work prospects and promotion opportunities and to pursue further academic studies; and students eventually taking the IELTS Test upon successful completion of the programme. We have designed our course in this manner so that our students do not have to search outside for support in their preparation for further studies. However, the advanced course is also open to those who would like to pursue it as a standalone programme.

David Game Management School will separately assess all students at the end of the course and upon successful completion, David Game College, UK will issue a Report and a Certificate of Achievement. Given that those who complete the advanced course will have attained higher level of proficiency in English language, it will be possible for them to seek employment opportunities in organisations within a range of sectors where English is used for operational purposes.

Course Duration: 3 months


Entry requirements

Although there are no formal entry requirements, we ensure that all students sit for a placement test at the beginning. This will enable us to determine the level of proficiency of the students before admitting them on to the appropriate course.


Private Tutoring

We also offer private tutoring for students who require individual attention to improve their command of spoken and written skills. This approach is flexible for the student who can choose the number of lessons and areas they would like to work on

Lessons can be designed to meet the student’s specific language requirements, whether they are conversation, Business English or more specialised fields such as tourism, marketing, and accounting.
