Language courses

Course starts every Monday and is for all language levels
General English
  • From 16 years old
  • 15 students per class
  • Lesson 50 minutes

This is our most popular English language course, largely for the simple reasons that lessons are in the morning, and end at 12:30 (our General English 20 ends at 13:35, and our Intensive English 30 course at 16:00 or 17:15.). Course syllabus is 15 or 20 or 30 hours per week.

We have classes at all levels:

A0 (Beginner)

A1 (Elementary)

A2 (Pre-Intermediate)

B1 (Intermediate)

B2 (Upper Intermediate)

B2E (Upper Intermediate exam)

C1 (Advanced)

C2 (Proficiency)

We use course books published by the UK’s leading suppliers (Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press and Pearson produce many of the books we use), continually reviewing the latest editions and switching to them when they appear. Titles we use include English File, Speak Out and Navigate.

Your textbook is included in the free welcome pack on your first day.

We have been running Cambridge exam courses for almost 20 years, and we have some of the most experienced Cambridge exam teachers you could find. Lessons under their guidance are fun, interesting and ultimately, for almost all of our students, very successful.

This course includes exam preparation only, excluding exam. Please feel free to book your exam extra.

As with our General English courses, our Academic team continually reviews the syllabus for each Cambridge exam course to ensure our lessons are a perfect fit for the latest exams. In class we use the most recent up-to-date editions of Cambridge exam textbooks by leading British academic publishers, while our teachers are among the best-qualified in their field.

Throughout the courses, there are frequent progress tests for all students every two weeks, enabling our teachers to check how much each student has learned and to identify any weaknesses, and then to help them overcome any weaknesses. There are also monthly tutorials for all long-stay students.

Most of the students in our Cambridge exam courses are age 18 – 25, and many of these are current undergraduates or recent graduates, aiming to improve their English for their university courses or professional careers. Our minimum age is 16.

More mature students are of course always welcome too, and older people from huge range of professional backgrounds – doctors, lawyers, accountants, civil servants and more, as well as housewives and people who have retired – join courses in our school each year. The inclusive structure and layout of the school mean that everyone feels welcome and at home.

IELTS Preparation
  • From 16 years old
  • 8 students per class
  • Lesson 50 minutes

Our 4-week intensive IELTS courses provide full preparation for the IELTS exam. The IELTS courses always end on a Friday and in most cases, the IELTS exam is held the following day (Saturday).IELTS exam fee is paid extra (£200).

With a strong exam focus, our courses guide students through the four different parts, familiarising them with IELTS exam techniques and requirements, so that students know exactly what to expect and are confident of their own abilities when they sit down to start the exam.

Many IELTS courses combine IELTS preparation with General English – but this is an unproductive strategy, and the student’s efforts become diluted. Our intensive 4-week courses are far better, enabling students to focus completely on the IELTS exam, and to achieve their full potential in the exam itself.

Students who need to improve their English level should enrol in our General English courses before switching to the IELTS course (for example, 12 weeks General English + 4 weeks IELTS). On average, students need to study in a General English course for 12 weeks to improve their IELTS score by 1 point.

OSE has an international reputation for excellence in examinations. Since we started to run our 4-week IELTS course, 96% of our students have achieved the score they needed. The Oxford IELTS testing centre is 100m from our school.

Our IELTS tutors are very experienced in this exam, and you can trust them to provide you with all you need to get your best possible result.

The course includes:

- 4 weeks of intensive training for all 4 parts of the IELTS exam;

- Practice tests and exam preparation throughout;

- Training in academic reading, listening, writing and speaking;

- Extensive vocabulary building;

- 4 full mock exams in exam conditions;

- Training in exam skills and strategies;

- Weekly on-to-one sessions with your tutor;

- Detailed individual feedback.

Students must be at a minimum of CEFR level B2 to enrol in this course.

While most of the students in our IELTS courses are age 18 – 24, we welcome students of any age into the course.Our IELTS classes are very small, with a maximum of 8 students, but there are often only 4 – 6 students per class.

Minimum course duration — 4 weeks
TOEFL Exam Preparation
  • From 16 years old
  • 6 students per class
  • Lesson 50 minutes

We have unique knowledge of the TOEFL test and the demands it makes on students. Our TOEFL Preparation course is designed to meet these demands, using the years of experience we have gained by working with the candidates preparing for the TOEFL .

Oxford School of English is the only TOEFL ® Test Centre in the Oxford area. Our TOEFL students therefore have their lessons in the same area and have practice tests in the same computer suite where they will take the test at the end of the course.

Our students work on three main areas when preparing for the TOEFL test: overall language improvement, specific exam-related language improvement (this includes the grammar and vocabulary that the exam focuses on, as well as study skills and exam skills), and authentic exam practice.

The principal features of our TOEFL course are:

1. 15 hours General English per week. This gives students the opportunity to work on their overall level of English to improve their language level in preparation for the TOEFL test.

2. Computer-based study and exam practice. Based on TOEFL practice exercises and practice tests that can be done at home or on one of the computers in school. The students' tutors are able to access their work online, and will give detailed feedback.

3. Intensive time with a specialist tutor. This gives students the chance to work on individual language areas and skills for the TOEFL test. The tutors will use the students' computer-based exam practice to design a course that is specific to their needs.

Over the years, our students have achieved outstanding results in the TOEFL examinations. In 2015 and 2016 100% of our students achieved the score they wanted in the TOEFL test.

It has taken our students an average of 5 weeks to improve their score by 33 points, approximately equivalent to 1 level on the CEFR, as opposed to approximately 12 weeks on our other courses.

Students can start the TOEFL course on any Monday. The course is designed for very small numbers, so please contact us first to check that we have availability on your chosen date.

Lessons are Monday to Friday. The afternoon lessons apply to only two days per week.

Homestay Homestay
Homestay
  • From 16 years old
  • ~25 minutes by transport
  • Half board

Most of our students choose our homestay option. Living with Oxford residents is a great way to learn more about the UK and British culture, and of course it's a lot easier in many ways than living in an apartment, as the host does all the food shopping and cooking, the cleaning, and even your laundry!

We have around 300 homestay families in and around Oxford. Every homestay is different and we always do our very best to place students in a homestay that matches their needs as closely as possible – though of course, to do this we need clear and accurate information from students at the time of booking.

Please also consider that the earlier you book your homestay, the easier it is for us to find what you’re looking for. In the summer especially, there is great demand for homestay places, and last-minute requests are more difficult to meet.

Our homestay families are located all over Oxford, although most of them are in the north. This is one of the best parts of the city for homestay and there is an excellent bus service, with dedicated bus lanes. Students sometimes request a homestay in the city centre, but as the city centre is mostly university colleges, shops and businesses, very few local residents live here. So it's usually impossible to find homestay places in the city centre itself. A small number of our homestay places are within walking distance, and most of our homestay places are only 15 – 25 minutes by bus.

What you get:

In a homestay your breakfast and evening meal are provided (lunch at weekends, too); your laundry is done for you (although you can usually do it yourself too, if you prefer); and you have a warm, safe home to come back to after an exhausting day in school!

What you need to bring with you:

Just as if you're going on holiday, you need to bring your own toiletries (shampoo, shower gel, shaving equipment, hairbrush etc). Everything else – including towels – will be provided by your homestay.

Most of our students choose our homestay option. Living with Oxford residents is a great way to learn more about the UK and British culture, and of course it's a lot easier in many ways than living in an apartment, as the host does all the food shopping and cooking, the cleaning, and even your laundry!

We have around 300 homestay families in and around Oxford. Every homestay is different and we always do our very best to place students in a homestay that matches their needs as closely as possible – though of course, to do this we need clear and accurate information from students at the time of booking.

Please also consider that the earlier you book your homestay, the easier it is for us to find what you’re looking for. In the summer especially, there is great demand for homestay places, and last-minute requests are more difficult to meet.

Our homestay families are located all over Oxford, although most of them are in the north. This is one of the best parts of the city for homestay and there is an excellent bus service, with dedicated bus lanes. Students sometimes request a homestay in the city centre, but as the city centre is mostly university colleges, shops and businesses, very few local residents live here. So it's usually impossible to find homestay places in the city centre itself. A small number of our homestay places are within walking distance, and most of our homestay places are only 15 – 25 minutes by bus.

What you get:

In a homestay your breakfast and evening meal are provided (lunch at weekends, too); your laundry is done for you (although you can usually do it yourself too, if you prefer); and you have a warm, safe home to come back to after an exhausting day in school!

What you need to bring with you:

Just as if you're going on holiday, you need to bring your own toiletries (shampoo, shower gel, shaving equipment, hairbrush etc). Everything else – including towels – will be provided by your homestay.

The school wasn’t networked and I liked it very much. More attention was paid to each student. I didn’t notice much progress, but it wasn’t my aim to that trip. I wanted to relax and learn a language at the same time. I decided to stay in a homestay. The owners were good people, the house was clean. There was everything that I could need. The owners gave me the key so that I could freely enter and leave the house. I’m totally satisfied with the trip)...
