English Language Programmes

English Language Programmes

 

The English courses at OISC are each based on a syllabus that covers all skills areas to help you develop effective reading, writing, speaking and listening, together with the grammar that underpins all four skills to enable you to achieve your language aims at that specific level.

Homework will be given on a daily basis and reviewed in class or marked promptly and returned to students. Class time will be given to working on errors common to the class as a whole.

Weekly tests will be given, focusing on work covered in that week and regular reviewing of coursework will take place with particular attention paid to areas that cause difficulties.

Entry to the level is determined by placement test and monitoring throughout the course will ensure that you will reach your goal, whether that be to pass an examination, to cope better with university life or to function more effectively in the workplace.


These programmes take place year round, both for groups and individuals. In the summer older students are taught in the University. All courses train students to communicate clearly both in written and spoken usage.

We welcome all age groups and levels. Students are assessed on the first day, and there are four main courses:

  • Group tuition (Standard: 20 lessons per week, or Intensive: 30 lessons per week)
  • Combined Programme (20 lessons + 5 or 10 individual lessons)
  • Private tuition (10, 20, or 30 lessons a week)

We advise students on the best programme for their needs before arrival.

Our English programmes include :

  • General English
  • Junior English
  • Business English
  • Academic English
  • Specialist programmes, eg for Law, or Medicine, or Teachers
  • English Plus, eg English plus Literature, or Business, or History.

 

 

The maximum group size is 15 students, although most classes are much smaller, with on average 5 - 6 students. Larger classes are available for closed groups on request.
