Nos avisaron dos dìas antes del viaje de que nos cambiaban de Residencia, sin darnos explicaciones.Llegaron 2 menores solas al aeropuerto y no había nadie esperando . Tuvieron que esperar casi 1 hora( ocurrió lo mismo el año anterior).No le habían comunicado al conductor el cambio de Residencia y las llevó a la primera, donde las dejó tiradas hasta que pudimos solucionarlo por teléfono y las llevaron finalmente al alojamiento definitivo, 2 horas más tarde.A día de hoy, seguimos sin saber cuál fue el motivo del cambio de Residencia.

Le séjour s'est parfaitement bien déroulé. Les animateurs/profs étaient exceptionnels. La ville, en soit, est assez chaleureuse. Tout cela était parfait. Notre résidence se trouvait sur place, ce qui était assez pratique pour les cours.

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 residence, students will stay in single rooms which include a washbasin, free Wi-Fi and free bed linens (bring your own towel). Bathrooms are shared. Spend time hanging out in the common room with your new international friends - a great opportunity to get to know your fellow students better and to practise English! There is a paying laundry room and a permanent security service. The residence is located in the same complex as the course centre. All meals are taken in the dining hall, 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.
