Course Description

This programme focuses on the 4 main skills of language learning: listening, speaking writing, reading, and preparing students for their future exams. In Swindon, OISE offers its students the opportunity to acquire a natural command of English during their linguistic stay. It is in a modern setting that students aged 13 to 17 from all over the world meet. Courses limited to 8 students per class are the guarantee of an effective language stay. 


Preparation for secondary school exams: students study exam techniques to be able to confidently achieve their objectives in the baccalaureate, oral exam or any other English exam.

Cambridge and IELTS exams: students who wish to prepare for a language exam such as PET, FCE, CAE or IELTS can do so. They then work on the examination techniques and the key points that make it successful. Their schedule includes real-time mock exams and the methodology associated with the exam.

Possibility to take an exam the week of July 23rd (extra 200€ for PET, FCE, CAE, and 350€ for IETLS.)

Life and career skills: Students develop analytical and critical thinking skills that will be useful in everyday life and for their future careers.

Portfolio: each student has a personal portfolio. This "portfolio" helps the teacher and student to measure progress and acts as a support during individual coaching sessions. Students also use their personal "portfolio" for self-assessment, as well as to set personal goals.

Culture & Cultural Excursion: Students have a mid-week excursion to a place related to the program. Before the excursion, they do research work on the site, do a task during the excursion and, later in the week, give back their knowledge.
