[บทความ] Bubble Language School FAQ

Hi! This is our FAQ.

What kinds of courses and programs do you offer?

At Bubble Language School (BLS), we teach a range of categories. Our first process point is to identify the student’s goal be it an application abroad, an IELTS test, or hoping to improve their spoken and written abilities in English.

Are your teachers certified?


Yes. Our teachers go through a strenuous vetting process of abilities, certifications, and documentation for visa and work permit purposes as a secondary filter after: they must be able to teach well.


Do your teachers have training?


Yes. Generally, the Ministry of Thailand requires that our teachers have undergone an English teaching certificate program such as the CELTA, DELTA, TEFL, and/or the TESOL. Additionally, continuous ongoing training takes place on a weekly basis at our office and school to better serve our students and clientele.


What’s your class type?


Students learn better in relaxed, stress-free environments. In line with Finnish educational methodologies, and what we have collectively collected in roughly 60 years of experience [combined], Bubble Language School hopes to improve any person who walk its floors.

We offer customized classes, syllabi, and course outlines based on Pearson and Longman’s massive ELT series, cross-checked with BBC, and Pearson and Longman’s Global Scale of English (which is essentially a breakdown of the CEFR).

Most of our classes are privately one-on-one. As we as a species move to more active engagement together in physical spaces, we’re opening up our English, Thai, and reading/discussion group classes, with our highlight being:

Confidence Building Workshops

At a time with a busy workflow for everyone, certain students benefit from a regular weekly partner in their studies and academic goals — we aim to function as tutors, coaches, and teachers in whatever you’re trying to learn.

How long does it take before I can learn basic English?

About 100 hours of class and personal study time. With those skills, you could take orders in English for a standardized menu.

ต้องใช้เวลานานเท่าไหร่ถึงจะพัฒนาภาษาได้?

English improvement in speaking and listening can happen with regular classes in less than 90 days.
For writing and reading skills, in measurable metrics, it depends on the student’s rate of improvement and acquisition of patterns.

สำหรับการพัฒนาภาษาด้านการเขียนและการอ่าน ขึ้นอยู่กับตัวนักเรียนแต่ละคนในการพัฒนา

How long will it take to improve my Standardized test scores (IELTS, TOEIC, TOEFL)?

In terms of global averages, it generally takes 700-800 hours of instruction to achieve C2 mastery from, “I’m fine, thank you. And you?”

Generally, based on global averages, it takes about nine months to improve one point on the IELTS test in any given category (consistently).

However, much shorter timeframes have been achieved. Results and timeframes were dependent on a wide range of factors, to which we’d be happy to generally discuss without divulging any personal information.

How long is the class?

We have had classes from one to three hours, but we recommend at least 1.5 hours per class, twice a week. We try to blend in naturally into a person’s schedule in line with all the work commitments (or school) they may have. A person’s attention and focus vary and we try to adapt to that.

When can I start?

Our process is to first discuss goals and factors online.

Then, we arrange for an online or face-to-face consultation to build our initial notes on your goals.

Afterward, based on your schedule, timing, and needs, we set up a schedule on a monthly basis for your approval.

Finally, once the schedule is approved and Bubble Accounting has been paid by the student, your journey with us begins.
