Where to Practise Foreign Languages in Oxford: If you would like to become fluent in a foreign language in a short time, there is no better way than by learning with an experienced language instructor from Language Trainers. However, your learning process will not end when the class is over. To improve your ability and confidence, you will need to practise in real-life scenarios, such as in one of the many meet-up groups, like Oxford Culture and Language Exchange. This group gathers together people of all backgrounds to speak and learn different languages together. So, if you are looking to expand your understanding of other cultures and talk about travel and events happening around the world, this is the place for you. You will get to practise any language in a laid-back environment with both native speakers and fellow language learners, so don’t be shy and make sure you attend their weekly gatherings! You can also join their Facebook page for more updates and opportunities to interact with members. Another option is the Celebration of Cultures from Around the World Meetup, a language exchange group where members use their skills to discuss a whole range of subjects, like art, clothing, community banking, music, movies, traditions and food from different nations and cultures. They only have 25 free admission tickets each time, so let them know you are coming well in advance.
Where to Study Foreign Languages in Oxford: Being one of the oldest and most well-known higher education establishments in the world, the University of Oxford has dozens of options for those who would like to study languages. For example, there are courses in Czech (with Slovak), French, German, Modern Greek, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish where you will become proficient in the language while learning more about the cultures, literature and arts of the nations where they are spoken. You can also enrol in a BA in Modern Languages, a programme that has been taught since the 18th century, where you will achieve spoken and written fluency in colloquial and formal situations in the language of your choice, as well as the ability to write essays in the foreign language while developing a wide range of vocabulary, styles and registers. You can also focus your studies on popular culture, theatre, aesthetics, anthropology, psychology and more! Just be aware that one of the requirements is to have at least a basic understanding of your desired language. But don’t worry, we can help you achieve the minimum level required for you to enrol; just ask us about our Exam Preparation course!
Language Jobs in Oxford: Oxford's economy is flourishing, with plenty of local companies expanding overseas; so, learning a foreign language can help you advance in your career. For example, Oxford has always been an important centre of car manufacturing since Morris Motors was established in the city more than 100 years ago. Furthermore, businesses in the field of digital innovation, like Research Machines and Sophos, are thriving and primarily sell their developments to Asian countries, like China and Japan, making Mandarin, Cantonese and Japanese all profitable languages to know. Start learning a foreign language and boost your employability, especially if you compete against other monolingual candidates.
Using Language to Experience Culture in Oxford: Over the years, Oxford has become more and more diverse and multicultural, and this is reflected in the events and festivals held all around the city. For example, as of 2011, you can participate in the annual Oxford Mela event organised by the Indian community. It features Bollywood showings, traditional music, sporting competitions and delicious food. Or, in July, you can take part in the Cowley Road Carnival, a multicultural and colourful event full of music and games that was first established in the city in 2001. Meanwhile, if you are studying Chinese, why not attend the Chinese New Year Spectacular? Hosted by the Confucius Institute and Oxford Brookes University, you will observe displays of dance, acrobatics and martial arts among the many stalls of food and drinks. Meanwhile, those learning Spanish can enjoy the Dia de los Muertos or Día de la Salsa celebrations that take place every year. If you would like to plan ahead and enjoy the many cultural events organised all year round, visit the Oxford Locals’ website and have a great time!
