The coast, with the refreshing sea breeze, makes Folkestone the ideal choice for young people who want to study away from the distractions of the larger cities. Picturesque streets leaning towards the harbour are dotted with curious shops and cafes; viewpoints offer incredible views of the marine landscape. Kent, with its beautiful scenery, is home to Canterbury, famous for Chaucer's Cathedral and Canterbury Tales. OISE Folkestone is located to the west of the city, in the vicinity of a tranquil park with vast expanses for outdoor activities. 

OISE Folkestone has a select group of teachers with extensive experience in their field. All classrooms are located in the same building, creating a family atmosphere that fosters student confidence and safety. Classes are taught in small groups of up to 8 students, which allows you to benefit from both a strong group dynamic and great individual attention.
 
Folkestone is the ideal place for an intense and immersive English language stay. Everything is designed here to encourage concentration and the constant practice of English. The presence of students aged 13 to 17 from all over the world and the courses limited to 8 students per class are the promise of an effective language stay.


 


Enhanced Programme (27h/week)

This programme goes beyond the Summer School Programmes (27h/week). Classes are organised according to levels. Everyone is challenged and works according to their abilities and can thus progress to the maximum. Students participate in discussions on various topics, carry out group projects, and attend classes on subjects such as science, history, geography. Students also work in areas such as interpersonal skills, intercultural awareness, and developing autonomy in the learning process.



 


Cultural Programme & Activities

Every week, leisure activities complete the course programme of the language stay. During their language stay in OISE Folkestone, students have the opportunity to spend a Saturday in London, Canterbury or Brighton. 

On weekday evenings and weekends, OISE Folkestone offers various activities to encourage young students to use English in all possible contexts, adapting the language register to the situation in which they find themselves. Activities include theatre and craft workshops, sports competitions such as ping pong and table football, mini-disco, barbecue, swimming, film night and DJ workshop. This year, the school has facilities for badminton and basketball, and a percussion workshop given by a music professional.

 



Accommodation

Host Family

OISE Folkestone offers an unparalleled opportunity for complete immersion in the English culture, enabling the development of vocabulary and comprehension in different contexts. OISE Folkestone offers the possibility of staying with local families. Each family is rigorously selected by the school team according to strict criteria. The families offer full board, and the rooms are single and fully equipped. In order to maximise the opportunity to practice the language, OISE guarantees that no host family will host students of the same nationality.On the first day the family will take the student to and from the school so they are familiar with the journey. If public transport is required, the student will receive the required tickets.

Its sunny climate, refreshing sea breeze, beautiful gardens and urban parks and beaches make Folkestone the perfect place to learn English in an almost Mediterranean setting.
