  • ‘learning by doing’- pair and group speaking activities, role-plays, games, quizzes and problem solving activities

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.
