Scarborough, Perth West Australia
The West is Best for Thai Smile
Established in 2007 by Khun Neil Butler, a long time
follower and admirer of Thailand.
Neil first visited Thailand in 1997, as University student at UCL in London. He, like most people I meet, instantly fell in love with “the land of smiles”.
He, with his family have returned to THAILAND some fourteen times and regard Thailand as our second home.
In 2002, he received an opportunity to help in setting up a bi-lingual programme at the Daruna Ratchaburi School, 2 hours south of Bangkok.
The project involved residing in Thailand for one and a half years (my wife is a qualified language teacher and also a swimming instructor).

“The experience there with the local Thai population and richness of the culture made us fall in love with the nation”. “We lived with a beautiful Thai family who would teach us Thai in the evenings and I would help them with their English.
By the time we left, the mother of the family had qualified to become an English teacher for High School and Junior School levels and is still doing it now. Leaving was really hard.
In 1999 Neil and family relocated to Australia as Director of Studies at another international school and the bonus was to have many Thai students and practice my Thai after school (it’s still not good but it was great fun to practice!).
“Two years ago I decided to set up my own school with the philosophy of making all our students life-long learners of English and to create an atmosphere of fun and friendship.
We are so lucky to have amazing students who are hard-working, fun-loving and sincere. I have known most of the teachers for several years both as friends and professionals in the Industry”
