At RBIS, our door is open to everyone. Once your child has taken a placement test, we will be able to offer them the support they need.
2-How can RBIS help my child improve their English?
We have a special course designed to support your child’s English language needs, so that they can learn English and be part of the RBIS international programme as soon as they start learning with us/they join the RBIS family.
3-Who will teach my child?
An experienced native English speaker will help your child develop their English skills and make sure they are ready to join the RBIS international programme as soon as they can. Also, our teacher is supported by a Thai teaching assistant.
4-Will my child only learn English?
Even if your child needs to focus on their English when they join RBIS, they will be part of the school from DAY 1. They will attend some subjects in English, such as PE and Music, where they will connect with RBIS students and learn soft skills such as collaboration, teamwork and sportsmanship, for example.
5- Can the teacher speak Thai or Chinese in class?
To encourage your child to think in English and learn faster, the teacher will only speak English. The teacher is experienced and chooses simple words to make sure all students understand.

To encourage your child to think in English and learn faster, we want your child to become confident communicating in English as fast as possible so that they can join the RBIS international programme and participate fully in every subject.
7-I’m worried my child will be shy and won’t speak English. How can RBIS help?
There is a strong emphasis on communication in the EAL programme. Our experienced teacher uses a wide range of strategies to make your child feel safe and willing to speak English. Your child will be encouraged to gradually produce longer sentences when they speak.

To maximise your child’s exposure to English, your child will be encouraged to complete self-study tasks at home. You can guide your child and make sure they complete the tasks.
