Even though rain can be boring it's nice that it brings lower temperatures compared to our hottest months of April and May. Today we have just 28 degrees Celsius compared to 35-40 a couple of weeks ago.
Rain outside means that it is the perfect time for studying and in case the rain stops you from leaving your favourite restaurant you have a perfect opportunity to practice speaking Thai with the staff. Rainy season means less tourists on the island and Thai people have much more time to have long conversations with you in Thai.
If you are looking for learning Thai in small groups the rainy season is the best time to apply as we have less students during this period. The Beginner group starting in May is the course with the least number of students starting and the Intermediate and Advanced levels also have less students.
Less tourists means cheaper prices for accommodation and motorbike rentals, so studying during rainy season is also your cheapest option. If you can stand some rain now and then.
