"Education is key to unlocking the true potential for individual students and the future success of Thailand. There are greater regional and worldwide opportunities than ever before in terms of career, financial freedom and quality of life. Proud of their heritage and traditions, Thai students also need to be able to communicate as global citizens and English language can help them achieve their dreams and goals."

Following the initial online assessment, students are allocated to one of the six course levels, from Kittens up to Lions. Parents choose from a pool of over 50 tutors who have been carefully picked by English Gang, and select a class time that fits with the family's schedule.

"We are bringing the power of digital learning into the homes of children in Thailand, which really opens access to the English language and native speakers. It means families don't have to deal with travel logistics or the added expense and time pressure of sourcing a school, course and tutor. There needs to be a collective drive to take English language learning to the next level in Thailand over the next 10 years and this is our mission, one successful student at a time."
