I recommend everyone I know when they come to Thailand to simply sign up to a language school get their ED visa and spend the next 3 years living in Paradise and learning Thai. Learning Thai isn’t as hard as people think but a good school can go a long way and one of the best schools to learn at is Walen.
If you really want to live in Thailand but are not sure about how to go about it the best way is to come here on an Education Visa the ED Visa allows you to live in Thailand without having to leave the country for 3 years. You can leave the country if you want but honestly where would you go? Thailand is the best place to be that’s why you’re coming to live here right! Even if you are thinking about retiring here I still recommend you do the Language program because after 3 years at the school you’ll be able to speak read and write Thai which will make your life here that much better.
It’s possible to renew the visa after another 3 years which I was going to do but I’m going to get a work visa instead as since I’m fluent in the language already I’m a little worried they may deny my application. Actually i’m interested to hear of anyone else who has extended the ED Visa beyond 3 years.
The whole process of getting your ED Visa is the same for most schools, you pay your fees to the school give them your details and they do the paperwork for you. A few weeks later they have the paperwork completed and you have to take that paperwork and apply for the Visa outside of Thailand. You can only apply for the visa outside the country I went to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia which was a cheap and quick flight. But you don’t actually have to come to Thailand to get the paperwork done, contact the school about 5 weeks beforehand and apply and have them send the paperwork to you in your country, apply for the visa at your local embassy then fly over once you have the Visa sticker in your passport.
So how do you make money out of this? Well like I said Walen is one of the best known Thai language schools in the country and is even expanding now internationally with offices in most S/E asian countries it truly is a success story and you can be a part of it. About a year ago the owner Mac created what I’d call a pyramid affiliate scheme. Whereby if you sign up people at the school you can get a commission. Once those people have signed up other people you get a commission from the people that they have signed up. I did the math and if you sign up 10 people a month you could be making over 30,000 baht every month a nice little income you could even survive in Thailand on.
I’ve probably recommended the school to hundreds and hundreds of people which I know have signed up but didn’t make a cent out of it! Now if I sign someone up I make a $42 commission! Now that’s a bottle of Red Label and mixers at the club!
There is only one catch with the system though you have to be invited you can’t just register yourself. Since I’ve registered already I can now invite you all to join and start making money by referring other people.

Even if your not interested in making money out of referring people to the Thai Language affiliate program I recommend that you register so that I can help you out with the Education Visa. If you want to learn Thai then register. If you want to live in Thailand then register!
It only takes a minute to do so and even if you’re already signed up to the school or another school you can still be apart of this program. Anyone serious about living in Thailand should learn the language and this school really does have a good program for helping you learn. I studied at the school for months reading all their language books and it really did help me become more fluent in the language.
