We train our own (as well as many other schools) teachers to enable students to learn English simply, quickly and efficiently.

Our Location

Our main Thailand school is located in the lively surroundings of Sukhumvit 13 in the very heart of Bangkok. Sukhumvit is often considered the main thoroughfare of Bangkok and everything can be found on this stretch of road. Our school is just 2 stops from the Shopping District and only one stop from a large Business District. The area is full of restaurants, shops, malls and bars catering to a large local and international population, and is only 5 minutes from the famous Terminal 21 shopping mall. IH Bangkok is conveniently located within 3 minutes’ walk from the BTS (skytrain) and 8 minutes from MRT (underground) stations.

Bangkok is unlike anywhere on earth! Take a canal boat through the sleepy sprawl on the west bank of the river and you’ll still find poignant reminders of the vanished “Venice of the East”. Take a sincere interest in the people and you’ll find that most Thais are gentle, considerate, humorous and inexhaustibly patient. You will soon find yourself joining the many who have already fallen for Bangkok’s attractions.

There can be few cities of its size where you can feel so safe: for a city of at least 10 million people, street crime is extraordinarily rare.

In Bangkok, eating well is an obsession and it’s no exaggeration to say there are restaurants on every corner and are cheap to eat at. Nightlife in Bangkok starts late and finishes later. There are bars and clubs to suit every taste from tango to techno, trampling over jazz, blues, dance and heavy metal. Bangkokians are also movie-crazy! There are 50 cinema screens within a 5 minute BTS ride of our office!

Apart from dancing, there are other ways to use your energy: swimming pools, sports and fitness centres, an ice rink, and the opportunity to practise martial arts. However, shopping is the national pastime. There are countless palatial shopping malls to tempt the fashion-conscious and several huge markets for those in search of atmosphere and bargains.
