English Immersion Programme (EIP) in 5-week courses
[In Thai: หลักสูตรติวเข้มภาษาอังกฤษแบบเข้มข้น]
Asian University EIP is an intensive English language programme with qualified university teachers organised in five-week (125 hour) modules.
25 hours of instruction per week gives plenty of time for a variety of learning activities.
Each day, you will learn and practice the skills of speaking, listening, writing and reading, as well as developing your grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. Your teachers will use materials from various sources, and you will take part in communication games, activities and special projects according to your needs and preferences.
Each class also follows an internationally successful course book at the appropriate level, such as Interchange or Cutting Edge. As a student, you will receive your own book as well as some audio materials for home study. All materials are included in the cost of the course.
On arrival, you will meet one of our teachers and take a short placement test. This helps us to find the most effective level for you: beginner, elementary, intermediate or advanced.

The Asian University advantage
In a small class, you get more. Your teachers quickly get to know you and your learning needs. You can ask questions. You get more chance to practice. Our teachers enjoy the small classes as much as our students because they know they can help everyone make progress.
If you have a special interest, such as English for business, or IELTS or TOEFL preparation, we can usually give you special help. This is because our classes are small and flexible. Please talk to us about your special needs.
All our teachers are experienced and qualified English language instructors. All are native speakers of English, coming from the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Many also lecture on our international degree programmes.
One of Asian University's graduate programmes is an M.Ed. in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). Here at Asian University, we don’t just teach English but we teach the teachers, too!
