You’ll develop skills and build confidence in all areas of the English language. From learning the right way to use vocabulary and functions to writing fluently, we’ll transform the way you communicate.

Studying English Language with us means that you will learn in an interactive and immersive way, to give you plenty of opportunity for authentic, meaningful English communication and conversation. We use a combination of taught lessons in small groups, and ‘active English’ sessions, where you can apply your English to everything from cooking to debating dilemmas and solving murder mysteries.

The Experience

All teaching and accommodation for English Language courses will take place at Begbroke Hall, an 18th century hall located on a secure and peaceful site in north Oxford. The hall’s grounds back onto Blenheim Palace grounds and includes facilities such as art rooms, food technology rooms, and a technology suite, for a fully-immersive English Language course.

Living and learning at the same site provides for a fully immersive experience, similar to that of an English boarding school. The site is a safe environment, with great staff to student ratios, and all staff are background-checked and trained in safeguarding.
