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 the comfortable and well-equipped Clive Booth Hall university residence, students will stay in single rooms with ensuite bathrooms and desks. 4 to 6 bedrooms are grouped together in an apartment in which you will share a common room with your new international friends. A great opportunity to get to know your flatmates better and to practise English! There are vending machines for drinks and snacks, a paying laundry room and a permanent security service. The residence is located 15 minutes' walk from the course centre. All meals are taken in the course centre, 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. Enrol for a disco evening, watch a film with your friends, sing at the top of your voice during a karaoke evening... but also play sport, go shopping, visit museums and discover local attractions. You will have a thousand opportunities to exchange your ideas with the other students. The course package includes two excursions (by coach) plus 2 trips into Oxford (on foot) each week and supervised daily activities.
