English Lessons at Oxford School of English


At Oxford School of English, we believe that students, employers and educational institutions can benefit from a precise knowledge of the language levels achieved by our students. Because of this, all our classes are closely tied to the Council of Europe Common European Framework of Refererence for Language (CEFR), an internationally-recognised system of measuring proficiency in languages, and the Association of Language Testers in Europe (ALTE) frameworks.

We have an excellent range of English courses for all levels, from Beginner (CEFR level pre-A1) to Proficiency (CEFR level C2). You can choose how many hours you study every week, so you can fit your studies around your other commitments, and our courses are designed to suit all budgets.

Our classes are made up of a mix of nationalities and ages, and the teachers’ approach will reflect this, giving everybody an equal chance to participate. Teachers will use pairwork and groupwork to encourage learner autonomy, so that you can use every opportunity to learn and acquire the language.

All our courses will help you to:

  • communicate effectively and appropriately in different situations
  • express your ideas and opinions clearly and accurately in different situations
  • understand what you read or hear in different situations and registers
  • speak and write accurately and naturally in a range of styles, situations and registers

To help you to do this, our lessons focus on all aspects of the language:

  • structure - you will learn how to use grammar and vocabulary naturally in appropriate situations, focussing on the functions and contexts of different structures
  • skills - a wide variety reading and listening texts are used to improve your skills, and you will write and speak in authentic situations to build your proficiency and confidence

Our courses include regular progress tests, so that you can see how well you are doing, and identify the areas you need to work on. We encourage students to take external English language exams so you can show employers and academic institutions what you can do in English.

  • Guest - Jenny

    my name is Jenny and I am 19 years old. I am from Germany and I would like to improve my language skills. The "problem" is that I am here as an au pair for a family who lives near Woodstock. Which means that I do not have much time.
    I would like to visit a language course for maybe two or three months and more if it is convenient for me. Is there any choice that I can visit courses between 9.45 am to 1.30 pm (most likely on Tuesdays and Fridays, maybe Thursdays)? Because that are the only times where I have time.
    Could you please send me a budget? I do not need an accommodation.
    I thought about starting in November.
    And are your courses preparing me for the CAE too? Because I would like to make the CAE.
    Thank youu very much.
    Best regards,

    To whom it may concern

    We are sending you this mail from Turkey because we want to attend the Oxford summer school. We are students (aged 15) at Istanbul Lisesi, a special state school with a strong German department and we want to improve our English language skills and get a certificate which will help us to be able to go to a university in England or Germany. Our level at English is B1 or B2. Can you give us information about your courses, prices and the accommodation possibilities? We have passports but we do not have visas. Do we need an invitation letter from you to get visas? Thank you for your time.
