Born along time ago on a cold and gray Chicago morning. Donald has visited 14 countries around the world but most in Southeast Asia. His first trip to Thailand for a vacation was in the late fall of 1999. Right after Christmas of that same year he then decided it would probably really be Awesome to spend his New Year's vacation (Y2K) back in Bangkok. He has taught English to more than 6,700 Thai people from all walks of life. People young and old ages 4-60 years old, but mostly teenagers in 3-Thai government secondary schools for four years. This paved the way for his future and current vision for ESL/EFL in Thailand as we move forward.

Founded in December 2001 by Donald Patnaude & Supawan Inbunna. During this time he has worked for four private language centers, has taught for four years at three Thai government schools, and has provided consulting services on a wide range of educational topics for local schools and businesses.

Today's Mission: Ajarn Donald's wants to be able to provide within the Kingdom of Thailand to every person who chooses to learn English the best educational products & services to meet their demands, ultimately leading to a successful and productive future in any professional, academic or personal capacity they desire. This also must be done without allowing limitations such as income, religion, nationality etc. stand in the way in our efforts to achieve our goals and that is to find ways to teach everyone who wants/needs to learn the English language. A decision to learn or improve your English language skills + Ajarn Donald's English Language Services = success to your destiny. &
