The OILS promise

With so many English language schools all over the world, it can be difficult to choose one. At Oxford International Language School we believe that the fastest and most effective way to learn a language is to learn it in a country in which it is spoken. We are based in Oxford England, the capital of world's education, in the heart of the city, on Cowley Road - one of Oxford's main leisure districts and shopping streets. Our classes are small so you get plenty of support and attention from the teachers. In small groups like ours you will be able to tailor the content of your lessons with your teacher and fellow students and progress at an accelerated rate. Students receive homework every day and are encouraged to practice the language outside of the classroom.


Each class follows a structured programme designed to advance your language skills quickly and build your confidence in speaking English. Our courses take place throughout the year. We offer 12-week courses over the Autumn, Winter and Spring terms. From July to September our Summer School runs a range of intensive courses.


The school offer weekly cultural and social activities like: a pub meeting, a book and film club, visits to museums, trips around Oxford and other cities.
