Why Oxford?

Oxford is a fantastic place to live and study. The city is beautiful and bustling; traditional and modern. Rich in culture and academic history, it is famous on account of its outstanding university. However, it is also a busy 21st century city with excellent shops, cinemas and restaurants. Explore the famous covered market; row a boat on the River Thames; watch outdoor concerts and theatre performances. Oxford in the summer is full of things to do and see.

As one of our Summer Course students, you will quickly get to know Oxford and become familiar with a truly English way of life. A major part of the course is meeting and talking to English people – not just your teachers, but also local experts and professionals.

Our Summer English course

On the d’Overbroeck’s Summer English Course you will learn English by exploring a weekly theme in classes and workshops as well as through activities and trips, making our course different to many others. You will use you language skills, not only in the classroom, but also in authentic, real-life situations.

Due to the innovative way in which we structure our courses, you will find yourself practising new language skills straight away. So you are not just learning through lessons; you are learning by doing.
The course has been designed by Dr Helen Wood, the Director of the International Study Centre at d’Overbroeck’s, and uses original material, so you are not just following a generic textbook.

What to expect during your week

Each week has its own theme and is split into into two 3-day modules, each with its own theme. Each of the modules start with two days intensive learning which lead up to a Study in Action day outside of the school.

*Study in Action Day venues may be changed closer to the summer
