Host family


What better way to learn English in Oxford than to practise every day with a host family? If you’re looking for an authentic English immersion experience, host families are a great way to get to know the locals and learn more about the culture, sharing dinner and day-to-day life together. Host families offer you a single room (or double for students travelling together) and will usually be between 25 and 50 minutes on average from the school by bus (maximum travel time 60 minutes during high season), well-connected with local public transport. There is half board every day or the option of no board for students travelling alone, and laundry service (once a week) is included, along with bed linen and towels.

The Mews residence (ages 18 and over)

ESL Languages The Mews residence Kaplan Oxford

This residence is perfect for students who want to plug straight into the vibrant student scene of Oxford, on the doorstep of the lively Cowley Road, just a 30-minute bus ride from the school. Students will be placed in a shared 4-bedroom apartment with a shared lounge and a fully stocked shared kitchen. Each room has an en suite bathroom, storage space, desk, lamp, chair and WIFI. The residence will provide students with linen, but they will be responsible for cleaning it themselves for a fee using the onsite laundry facilities – it’s recommended that students bring their own towel. Students will be encouraged to be independent; they will need to cater for themselves and keep their own space clean. Between classes, students can socialise and relax with their new friends in the shared common room.

ESL Languages Alice House Kaplan Oxford

This stylish and modern residence is the perfect option for students looking for the ideal blend between the privacy and tranquillity of a studio apartment and a unique social atmosphere — just 25 minutes from the school by bus. Each studio has a bed, study area, storage, bathroom with a shower, Wi-Fi, and a kitchenette, giving you all the essentials in one place. Linen is provided by the residence, but students should bring their own towels, both of which can be cleaned for a fee in the onsite laundry facilities. Finally, while rooms are cleaned upon arrival, students will be expected to keep their own space clean and make their own meals. While the studio rooms provide privacy, you’ll also have plenty of opportunities to socialise in the common room and game room. To make this easier, your residence will organise social activities to help you make the most of this international student atmosphere.
