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.
