English Lessons in Oxford

Get Started and Learn English

With its rising spires and neoclassical architecture, Oxford is a historical and lively city with a thriving economy; it topped the PwC Good Growth for Cities Index in 2018 (and not for the first time) because of its mix of employment opportunities, healthcare, affordable housing and low commuting times. Famed for its university – which is the oldest in the English-speaking world – Oxford is also one of the fastest-growing cities in the UK, with a population of more than 150,000 people. According to the 2011 census, 90% of them speak English at an advanced level. This means that learning English is Oxford is a smart move if you are looking for a new job, would like to study at university or would simply like to feel like a local in your new home. Contact us today and we will design a personalised programme for you!

Why Study English in Oxford

Learn English for Culture: Learning English in Oxford not only places students at the centre of academic excellence, but also at the heart of the language itself. The Oxford English Dictionary is one of the most authoritative records of the English language, listing over 600,000 words-forms in the latest editions and with more added each year. The city has a fun side as well. Harry Potter fans can don their Hogwarts’ uniforms and wander the filming locations for the magical school’s library and Great Hall. If you are a fan, take a Harry Potter tour and feel as if you were in Hogwarts! Most of these tours are delivered only in English, so consider taking some classes with us at Language Trainers to make the experience even more magical. Quidditch matches may be hard to come by, but the annual Henley boat race in late March and early April is a worthy substitute. There are also annual literary, music, fashion and beer festivals, as well as a host of museums, galleries and attractions.

Learn English for Work: Unsurprisingly, education and publishing are cornerstones of the city’s economy, offering plenty of job opportunities for those taking English classes in Oxford. Oxfordshire is also one of Europe’s leading centres for innovation and science. This is in part due to the Oxford Science Park, which, as of 2019, is home to 70 influential science and technology businesses–including TripAdvisor, Oxford Nanopore and IBM. All of these companies require their prospective employees to have an advanced command of the English language. As you can see, speaking English is an essential requirement for securing a good job in and around Oxford.

Learn English for Studies: Those who would like to pursue higher education can do so at Oxford University, famous for its exceptional teaching, research and learning opportunities. International students wanting to apply to Oxford must achieve a specified minimum level on an internationally accredited language exam to demonstrate sufficient English proficiency, such as IELTS, TOELF or CPE, to attend classes. These exams are quite challenging and competition for places at Oxford is very high, so make sure you get ready well in advance. Contact us today and we will tailor our Exam Preparation Course to your specific requirements and needs!
