A safe environment for young learners of all ages.

OISE Telford is located in its own extensive grounds with excellent recreational facilities including tennis courts, heated swimming pool, playing fields and a football pitch. Students also have the opportunity to choose either homestay or residential accommodation.

The school is situated in the small and typically English market town of Wellington in the county of Shropshire approximately 5 miles from the centre of Telford. Telford, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, is one of the UK's fastest growing and most successful new towns.

Every weekend there is a full day excursion either to Chester, Shrewsbury or Stratford-upon-Avon as well as trips to Drayton Manor Theme Park.

Young Learners are greeted by members of the OISE courier team at London airports or the Eurostar terminal within standard hours as part of the package. Students are then accompanied to the Welcome Lounge, a facility with food and refreshments as well as activities to keep students occupied until they are taken onward to the school.

The small groups of up to eight students allows the tutor to give constant individual feedback to the student and offer maximum attention.

The lessons are designed to stimulate fluent use of English in a range of relevant contexts that will be useful to students in the coming years.

The programme is designed specifically for children aged 14 to 17 years of age, and aims prepare students for their future speaking English for academic and professional purposes.

The Full Study programme for 14 to 17 year olds is a rigorous course that encourages fluent communication and effective self-expression in English.

OISE's philosophy of total language immersion plays an important role in the course, meaning that the whole learning experience is structured to teach relevant vocabulary and expressions, and to provide constant opportunities for students to apply what is learned in real situations.

The course offers a unique opportunity for young people to take an intensive course that corresponds to the needs of their age group, in an encouraging and supportive environment.

With over 40 years of experience, the OISE method has proven to teach valuable and relevant communication skills promoting rapid progress in a short period of time, and resulting in the learner gaining confidence and having an excellent command of the English language by the end of the programme.

At the beginning of the course students are tested on their existing English ability and are divided into appropriate groups of no more than eight students according to their level.

In the morning classes are focused on the development of oral and written expression and comprehension, study of grammatical structures and development of vocabulary.

In the evening, workshops focusing on oral communication promote fluency and correct inaccuracies in pronunciation. Confidence in English is built through interesting discussions, presentations and creative writing.

The programme is concluded with half an hour of leisure, culture and sports in the afternoon. These activities vary from school to school and allow students to practise using the language outside the classroom and in different contexts. Saturday excursions allows further opportunities to apply the language learned during tuition.

Accommodation

You have to book accommodation with the course you have selected

Homestay

45 minutes from school on public transport
Minimum age — 14
Full board

Accommodation is with host families living in Nottingham and is on a full-board basis. All host families are thoroughly inspected and their credentials checked. There will be no other student of the same mother tongue in the family. Students are brought to the school by the host family on the first day, and from then on they walk or are provided with a bus or tram pass to travel to and from school as necessary.

Integration into family life is essential to make the student’s stay in the country enjoyable and to make the learning process complete. Living with a family gives students the opportunity to practise what they have learned during the lessons.

All families meet OISE’s standards: the houses are comfortable, the hosts are welcoming and, above all, are genuinely interested in receiving young guests and helping them to develop fluency in the English language.

Students share the family’s way of life by having breakfast and dinner with them, and joining in other activities such as sports and

discussions. OISE also ensures that each pupil gets the maximum opportunity to practise their language by not accommodating two students of the same mother tongue in the same home.
