Course Summary

Oxford Summer English enables students to improve their knowledge of English, both written and spoken, while living among the dreaming spires of Oxford, where Philip Pullman wrote His Dark Materials and Lewis Carroll drew inspiration for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

As well as ensuring students make rapid progress in their written, read and spoken English, the Oxford Summer English course ensures that students experience England as much as they intensively learn its language. The enjoyable learning environment, historic city and like-minded individuals on the course enable students to improve their knowledge of the challenging language in a fun setting.

Why choose our EFL course?

Each year, 16- to 18-year-old students from a huge range of nationalities come to Oxford Royale Academy to take our English as a Foreign Language (EFL) course, immersing themselves in our unique educational environment and taking their grasp of English to new heights.

 

Overcome the challenges of mastering English

Many students find that English can be a complex language to learn, with many bizarre idioms, exceptions to rules and unexpected pronunciations. Its idiosyncrasies mean that it can be difficult to get your knowledge of English beyond a basic level to a stage at which it becomes useful in either a general or academic setting. Our EFL courses are designed to provide an intensive yet enjoyable learning environment for students keen to progress their English skills, allowing them to tackle this challenging language in the company of like-minded students who are committed to improving their knowledge.

 

The benefits of the EFL course

The many benefits of taking an EFL course will stay with you throughout your academic life and beyond. The Oxford Royale Academy EFL course provides an advantageous environment in which to develop your English skills, as it is set in the scholarly surroundings of the University of Oxford – home to true masters of the English language. Some of the reasons for which students choose to take our EFL course include:

  • Preparing for university – many of our 16-18 students are preparing to apply for an English-speaking university, and take an EFL course to boost their English skills in readiness for use in an academic context. If you’re about to apply to a UK university, our EFL course will help you hone your English to the standard expected by admissions tutors, teaching you valuable academic vocabulary along the way.
  • Improving communication – all our EFL students want to improve their communication in English, both written and spoken. Our EFL courses introduce you to the new vocabulary, grammar and syntax you need to ensure your English skills dazzle.
  • Rapid progress – one of the major benefits of our EFL course is that it allows you to progress your English very rapidly. With over 20 hours of English lessons a week, the intensive tuition and company of other students will mean you quickly absorb new knowledge.
