ANGKRIZ English Academy was founded in early 2010 by Kanatip (LukGolf) Soonthornrak and his sister, Saranee (Yui) Soonthornrak.
ANGKRIZ combines fashion, social trends and English, and can be summed up by its tag-line “always classy”. In other words, ANGKRIZ is primarily for those who need to improve their English skills. From well-designed teaching materials to the look of the classroom and the academy’s seriously cool ambience, ANGKRIZ is deeply involved with what’s hot in the world.
ANGKRIZ originates from and maintains its base in Bangkok, Thailand. However, it works collaboratively with an expert from London, who proofreads all the students’ work to bring them the best English experience possible.
ANGKRIZ English Academy derived from founder’s strong passion for teaching. LukGolf first began tutoring high-school students in English as a part-time job. After a while, he was thrilled to realise that this was his true vocation. When he had graduated from a postgraduate degree in the United Kingdom, he decided to set up his own English academy and pursue it as his main career. LukGolf and Yui work collaboratively: all the amazing, fashionable facets of the teaching at ANGKRIZ derive from LukGolf while Yui is responsible for the business management and development.
ANGKRIZ offers several distinctive courses. Though most of them are uniquely designed for high school students, there are some available for university students and others. ANGKRIZ is currently providing education to students in Bangkok and the surrounding areas.
In 2013, both founders founded another business entity, called ANGKRIZ Learning Solutions Co.,Ltd. which offers an E-learning courses for Thai English learners nationwide through their own web-platform. ANGKRIZ Learning Solutions Co.,Ltd. focuses on three main core values, namely, “Knowledge, Passion, Attitude”
