Man wohnte gut, ordentlich und in sauberen Verhältnissen. Die Zeitdisziplin der Jugendlichen differierte sehr, so dass jene, die pünktlich am vereinbarten Treffpunkt erschienen mitunter lange warten mussten, um z.B. zum Essen, zum Unterricht oder zur Freizeitaktivität zu gehen.

Le centre d'Oxford est super! Les logements sont parfaits et l'ecole est jolie Il y avait beaucoup de personnes venant des quatres coins du monde. Il y avait quand meme beaucoup de personnes parlant le francais par rapport aux autres langues, mais ce nombre est minime par rapport a la quantité de personnes présentes Le staff etait super, et toujours la pour nous aider! Les cours etaient chouettes, et plus tranquilles qu'a l'ecole, ce qui est bien car,apres tout, c'est les vacances! La nourritnourriture etait acceptable. Tout le monde etait tres gentil et venait vers les autres! Les excursions etaient tres chouettes, mais je n'ai pas eu de journée entière d'excursion, n'étant venue que pendant une semaine... Ce qui est dommage est le fait que nous n'avons pas suffisament de temps libre pour profiter suffisament du centre d'Oxford, alors que l'on est assez près

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 each. 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 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 evening, watch a film with your friends, sing at the top of your voice during a karaoke evening... but also play sports, go shopping, visit museums and discover local attractions. The course package includes a weekly optional excursion plus trips into Oxford on foot (like shopping days - students must check-in with staff at set times) each week and supervised daily activities.
