Course Description

Headington Oxford Summer School offers English classes for 13 - 16 year olds on Oxford’s beautiful campus in the UK. Headington combines English language learning, cultural excursions and activities to create an enriching summer experience. There are both traditional English language classes and combined English Through Academic Subjects.  There is a maximum of 15 students per class, and students receive 15 hours of tuition per week in addition to excursions and other activities.  Each course culminates with the Time to Shine ceremony, where students present what they have learned to their classmates.

General English engages students in creative lessons and conversation-based activities to focus specifically on improving grasp of the English Language.  With a combination of coursework, group lessons, and fun activities, students improve their conversational ability in spoken English in addition to improving grammar and writing.  Students develop their vocabulary, pronunciation, and writing/listening through a series of dynamic and creative activities, presentations, and projects.  The emphasis is on real-world communication helps students gain confidence for communicating in English in everyday situations.
