It was a life-changing experience! The lessons were very useful to improve my English, I didn't think I would learn so much in three weeks. It was definitely better than I expected!

What to bring

You will receive all the materials you need to use in class, but please bring a notebook to write in. It's a good idea to bring a smartphone, tablet or laptop with you too, so you can use the e-Learning Centre too.

e-Learning Centre

On the first day of your course, you receive a free 1-year subscription to our e-Learning Centre, which you can use

  • while you are here in Oxford to support your independent study 
  • after you return home so you can continue to improve your English.

School day

The school is open to students from 08.00 to 17.30, Monday - Thursday, and until 16.30 on Friday. Students can use the Student Rooms, self-study and computer facilities when they are not in class.

At lunchtime, we have a small kitchen with microwave and fridge, so you can prepare a snack, if you decide not to go out to eat.
