Our SPIP student, Tod-Theekasvas Svastivatana Na Ayudhaya, was one of the Thai students who join the Education & Cutural Exchange (ECE) at Medina College, UK. This special programme was organized by ECE Thailand. Here is the appreciation message from Medina College, UK:
Over the last three weeks we have been lucky enough to host nine Thai students at the school. The students are all in year 9 and are part of a group of fifteen students aged between 13-17, the older students have been on a placement at the Isle of Wight College. The students come from all over Thailand and most of them only met each other once before flying out to the UK.
The students have come to the UK for seven weeks, the aim of the trip is so the students can work on their English, gain an understanding of UK culture and to tell us about Thailand. During their first week they made an exhibition about Thailand and rice, which is currently on display at the Isle of Wight College. The students then had a couple of weeks of English lessons to help prepare them for their school or college placement. During the evenings and weekends the students have visited various places such as London, Portsmouth, Robin Hill, Alum Bay, Osborne House.
During their time with us, the Thai students have amazed us with their fantastic grasp of the English language. They have been a joy to host and we hope they’ve got lots out of their time on the Isle of Wight and at Medina College.
