Très bon séjour de 15 jours et de belles rencontre. De bonnes activité, des moniteurs très sympathiques et une bonne ambiance de classe. Une bonne ambiance de classe même si les cours ne restent pas très structurés et diversifiés surtout pour une semaine. Pour apprendre l'Anglais il faut rester 2 voir 3 semaines. Une bonne école et une bonne cantine durant la semaine. Néanmoins la cantine du week-end restait pas terrible et non diversifié en terme de repas. Pour les chambres, bien pour une personne mais un problème de douche. L'eau déborde de partout dans la salle de bain, pas pratique ! De très bon moniteurs, de super jeux et une super ambiance de groupe. Les sorties restaient relativement correcte même si il n'y avait pas de visites comme Windsor Castel.

Las excursiones de medio dia estaban poco preparadas y casi todos los destinos no tenían un gran nivel Se deberían mejorar los medios tecnológicos para el uso de los alumnos. La piscina no era gratuita y estaba fuera de la escuela. Esto no era lo que según la oferta de ESL se nos había propuesto.Demasiados suizos del lado francés. Comidas mejorables para el dinero que nos ha costado alojar y enviar a nuestra hija en Oxford. Ya que es una escuela internacional los platos podrían provenir de diversas culturas. Las excursiones deben mejorarse mucho.

Testimonials
Louise Dornier, France
Louise Dornier, France

I choose Oxford because last year I went to Canterbury and for this summer I wanted to go in a summer camp with older people. In class, we learned the past perfect, modal verbs, present perfect, present simple, present continuous, history about King Arthur and Buckingham. The excursion in Bath was interesting, Portsmouth was very cool because of the sun and the big tower. The Laser Quest was funny, too. I will remember the really good friends I met from Germany, Italy, and Turkey and Saudi Arabia. People are very friendly with each other! Nobody was shy, all wanted to speak English and meet new friends. I liked the excursions, the school had very interesting games. It’s a good city centre with friendly people and the site was comfortable and clean.

Residence
In this comfortable and well-equipped residence, students will stay in university-style flats with 5 or 6 single en-suite rooms per flat. Students can relax in the spacious common areas, where they will find vending machines for drinks and snacks and a shared kitchen. There’s also a laundry room for pay and 24/7 on-campus security. The residence is located within easy walking distance from the school. All meals are taken in the school building, except in the case of an excursion, where a packed lunch is distributed.

The programme includes afternoon and evening activities. The action-packed programme allows students to practise their English outside the classroom! Out-of-class activities are an essential feature of the overall programme. Take part in a disco night, watch a film with your friends, sing at the top of your lungs during a karaoke evening... but also do sports, go shopping, visit museums, do punting and discover local attractions. You'll also have the chance to visit Oxford on foot and participate in other supervised daily activities.
The course package also includes two full-day excursions, plus optional extras during the excursion (for example, a trip on the London Eye while in London, or entrance to the Roman Baths while in Bath).
