HISTORY OF PRACHOOM WITTAYA SCHOOL 

In the year 1968, Mr. Prachoom Fuongtong established an English language teaching school.  He saw at that time there were a lot of American soldiers/advisors in Udon Thani assigned to the Ramasun Military Station.   There was also an American consulate in Udon Thani located near the Udon Thani Center Hospital, which is presently closed.  He then asked the Ministry of Education for permission to open a vocational non-formal education school   and name it, "Prachoom Wittaya School", the License No. 2/2512, dated 06 October 1969.  At that time, there were a number of new businesses and individuals that required English in order to communicate with foreigners.  These included maids, waiters, drivers, barbers, tailors, salesman, bakers, and hotel staff, as well as traders, who did business with American soldiers;  students, who were interested in studying abroad; and those who married or stayed with foreign soldiers.  In the year 1994, the Voice of America (VOA) opened a radio station in Ban Dung District, Udon Thani, and an American compound was established in the downtown area.  These occurrences alerted the Thai people to the advantages of studying and understanding the English language. 

Since the date Mr. Prachoom Fuongtong established Prachoom Wittaya School, he has given the school all of his energy, and knowledge, beliefs and learning.  He has excelled in understanding the need for the Thai people learning and understanding the English language, thus giving Thai people to learn and understand the English language.  Thus giving the Thai people the opportunity to improve themselves and their lifestyles.  By doing this, Mr. Prachoom has provided for the Thai people countless opportunities here and abroad.  It is the hope and wish that his school will excel in the future.  We also hope to exceed the expectations of the business community and to serve all students that come to excel in the English and other languages while we embrace new technology in order to open and connect the communication of society.    

 

Mr. Prachoom hopes that all Thai people realize and understand the importance of other languages, which is not the same as closing their minds to the Thai language.  Other languages provide an opportunity for improvement of oneself in the coming years ahead.  The founder of the school, Mr. Prachoom Fuongtong has dedicated his life work to serving Thai people thru knowledge.
