A Message from Our Managing Director.
Welcome to Smartys English Academy, where we help students achieve their language learning goals in a fun and engaging way. I am a passionate educator who founded the school with a vision to provide quality education that is accessible to everyone.
An educator has the power to make a tremendous difference in the lives of their students. By sharing knowledge, sparking curiosity, and providing guidance and support, educators have the opportunity to shape the future of their students and help them reach their full potential.
Being an educator is more than just a job - it is a calling. It requires passion, dedication, and a deep commitment to the growth and development of others. Educators have the unique ability to inspire, motivate, and challenge their students to think critically, solve problems, and become lifelong learners.
But being an educator is not without its challenges. It requires patience, resilience, and an unwavering belief in the potential of each and every student. It can be emotionally demanding, and at times, it may feel like progress is slow or difficult to measure.
Despite these challenges, the impact that educators have on the lives of their students is immeasurable. By providing a safe and supportive learning environment, educators can help their students develop confidence, resilience, and a love of learning that will stay with them throughout their lives.
Being an educator is a noble and rewarding profession that has the power to change lives. By sharing knowledge, inspiring curiosity, and providing guidance and support, educators have the opportunity to make a lasting impact on their students and help them achieve their dreams. It is a calling that requires dedication, passion, and a deep commitment to the growth and development of others, but the rewards are immeasurable.
I have always had been passionate about education and languages. After completing my studies in education and linguistics, I worked as a teacher for several years. However, I noticed that many students struggled with traditional teaching methods and felt discouraged by their slow progress. Determined to make a difference, I founded Smartys English Academy in 2015.
Since its inception, Smartys English Academy has grown into a thriving community of learners from all walks of life. We offer a range of courses that cater to different learning styles and levels of proficiency. Our experienced teachers use innovative teaching methods to help students develop their language skills in a supportive and encouraging environment.
At Smartys English Academy, we believe that language learning should be fun and engaging. That's why we incorporate games, activities, and real-life scenarios into our lessons. Our goal is to help students feel confident using English in any situation, whether it's for academic, professional, or personal purposes.
Thank you for considering Smartys English Academy for your language learning journey. We are committed to providing quality education that is affordable and accessible to everyone. Come join our community of learners and discover the joys of learning a new language with us!

BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO DIRECT METHOD.
Direct Method is a fast, fun and easy way of learning English that focuses on improving students’ listening and speaking skills. Today more than 500 schools use the Direct Method across Europe, Asia and South America, Smartys Language School is the first school to introduce this method in Suphanburi, Thailand.
Why is this method so popular and effective?
It is suitable for students of all nationalities, of all ages and for all purposes of study. It is based on repetition and speed, the two things that guarantee success in learning a language. Students spend less time and less money on lessons by learning English in a quarter of the time it takes to learn by other methods. Students reach the level of the internationally-recognized Cambridge Preliminary English Test (PET) in approximately 80 hours instead of the usual 350 hours it takes when learning by other methods and the level of the Cambridge First Certificate in English (FCE) in about 160 hours.
If you study English at Smartys you will:
Learn to listen and respond to English spoken at normal conversational speed• Learn to think and speak directly into English without first translating
What is the secret of learning a language?
“The secret to success when learning a language is to repeat, repeat and repeat and to speak without thinking” Talking at top speed".
You cannot control the speed at which a native English speaker speaks on television, in films, in the shops or in the streets. If you want to learn English quickly and well, you must learn to understand and respond to English when it is spoken at normal speed. One of the ways the Direct Method achieves maximum speaking time and maximum concentration from its students is by ensuring that, from the very first lesson, the Smartys teacher speaks to the students in English at the rate of 240 to 280 words a minute. The Smartys teacher’s extra speed prevents boredom, makes the student concentrate, stops them from translating the sentences into their language first (by not giving them time to do so), allows them to hear more words repeated more times, makes it easier for them to understand English outside the classroom, and, of course, makes them learn faster.
With the Direct Method, there is almost no homework
Everything happens within the lesson time
