OISE Dawlish is located in the centre of this pretty Devon seaside resort, close to the beach.
With a capacity limited to 48 students, OISE Dawlish has a warm family atmosphere which makes it perfect for those who are visiting England for the first time. The school itself is nestled in picture-perfect grounds complete with a trickling stream.
OISE's philosophy of total language immersion plays an important role, meaning the whole learning experience is structured to teach relevant vocabulary and expressions, and to provide constant opportunities for students to reinforce what is studied by applying it to natural, real-world situations, both in the classroom and outside of it.
With over 40 years of experience, the OISE method has been proven to teach valuable and relevant communication skills promoting rapid progress, resulting in the learner gaining confidence and having an excellent command of the English language.
OISE runs the Intensive Summer Curriculum, the culmination of over 40 years of summer tutoring experience. The course is full time at 27 full hours per week, in OISE’s signature maximum group size of up to eight students. This format allows an active group dynamic as well as allowing a great deal of individual attention from the tutor.
The days generally follow a theme each day, starting with grammar or vocabulary and flowing into more creative and productive tasks in the afternoon. OISE deliver a full day of learning which focuses on language, academic literacy, subject literacy and social and cultural fluency to encourage students both intellectually and socially.
One evening per week there will be a social activity for all students. Examples include film nights, barbecues, talent shows, art, quizzes, and bowling. Excursions include places of historic or architectural interest such as the Barbican Centre in Plymouth, an outing to the National Marine Aquarium or a visit to the city of Exeter. Sundays are spent with host families.
