What students liked about Oxford International Language School, Oxford
I think everything was extraordinary. I really loved the teaching methods. I have made huge progress in 3 weeks, especially with self confidence with speaking English. Now it is so much easier for me to think and talk in English. Furthermore, everyone in school was very friendly, helpful and open. Orla is the best teacher I’ve ever had in my life. Moreover, I’ve made friendships with other students. It was a great experience all together. The best adventure of my life.
