Es hat alles reibungslos geklappt. Der E-Mail-Kontakt mit ESL war sehr schnell und mir wurde gemäß meiner Wünsche und Anforderungen ein passender Kurs herausgesucht. Es gibt absolut nichts, worüber ich mich beschweren könnte. Super. Ebenfalls war die Beratung stets extrem nett. Es wurden viele Ausflüge am Wochenende angeboten. Außerdem gab es ein socialising programm, welches jeden Tag angeboten wurde. Die Studenten haben es nicht sehr umfangreich wahrgenommen. Aber das Angebot war da also top!

L'école et les professeurs étaientsimplement parfaits! J'ai beaucoup aimé cette expérience Parfait. Ambiance en classe 5 étoiles. Professeura très acessibles et amis. Jane c'était la meilleure partie de mon expérience!!! Elle m'a traité très bien,m'a beaucoup aidé et corrigé mes erreurs.Elle s'a promené avec moi, m'a presenté quelques amis et on a eu vraiment des bons moments. J'ai jamais pensé de rencontrer quelq'un comme Jane. On était comme des copines qui se connaitre depuis des anées :) Elle cuisine très bien et elle me donnais bcp d'attention quand j'étais à la maison. On était toujours entrain de parler et de s'amuser. Je vais jamais oublié!! :)Je remercie infiniment à tous qui ont contribué très positivement pour mon expérience. Ma famille d'accueil (Jane e son petit chat) et l'école étaient vraiment 1000 étoiles et grâce à tous, je peux dire que ça c'était une des plus belles expériences de ma vie! Merci ESL et merci BSC! 10 étoiles pour tout ça. Activités diverses et très interessantes. Ambience entre les participants vraiment TOP. Les activités ont bcp aidé à pratiquer la langue et à faire des conaissances.

« Ouo, sans doute je pense avoir fait quelque progrès. Bien sûr que 2 semaines ne sont pas sufis pour augumenter bcp de niveau mais le fact d'être toujours en cours et toujours dans un pays où on n'a pas une autre langue pour parler, ça nous oblige de parler tout le temps anglais et bien sûr qu'à la fin de 2 semaines dans ce rythme, on se sens plus à l'aise pour parler. C'est mon cas, je sens que malgré mes erreurs, l'important c'est parler. Avant j'avait tout le temps peur de parler. »

Très beau pays et excellent choix grâce à ESL Infrastructures de l'école très mauvaises : impossible d'ouvrir les fenêtres et lorsqu'il pleuvait de l'eau rentrait dedans, poignée de la porte cassée dès mo arrivée et après avoir annoncé deux fois aux professeurs toujours aucun changement. Matériel livre pour IELS impossible d'écrire dedans à mois de l'acheter, alors que l'agence ma dit que tout était compris dans les tarifs Superbe famille, comme à la maison vraiment

Die 13 Wochen, die ich in Oxford verbringen durfte, waren super. Die Stadt sowie auch die Schule (BSC) sind großartig und wärmstens zu empfehlen! Mitten im Herzen Oxfords ist die Schule an einem Top-Standort und einfach zu erreichen. Top Personal. das sehr unterstützend ist sowie interessanter und abwechselnder Unterricht Super Lage in der Nähe der Schule & Innenstadt und unmittelbar vor Supermärkten und Bushaltestellen. Die Unterkunft war geräumig und das Zimmer groß. Sehr bemüht, um möglichst viele Alternativen, um sowohl Oxford kennenzulernen als auch Kontakt zu anderen Schülern herzustellen, zu bieten. Die Ansprechpartner waren äußerst freundlich und jederzeit ansprechbar.

« Da mein Sprachlevel vor der Reise bereits im höheren Bereich war, hatte ich nicht die größte Lernkurve im Standradkurs (was aber definitiv nicht am Unterricht lag). Nach einem Wechsel in das CELTA-Programm habe ich jedoch immense Fortschritte gemacht, was sowohl die Theorie, vor allem aber die Praxis des Lehrens angeht. »

Duration: 2 weeks

My stay in Oxford was great, the school staff as well as the residence were amazing. I liked BSC’s teaching method a lot for it is very effective and you learn fast. My colleagues were all very friendly, I met people from the most diverse countries and I have kept in touch with them. Learning English in Oxford was a wonderful experience, not only from a linguistic but also from a cultural point of view. Thanks to the activities organised by the school, I could visit other cities such as Stonehenge – which I had always wanted to visit. The residence was excellent, my room was very comfortable and clean and the staff was friendly. Besides, there was Wi-Fi access in my room, which turned out to be very useful to me. As an IT guy, I had taken my laptop with me so I could check my emails and communicate with other people from my room. All in all, my stay was great, it allowed me to learn a lot and to discover a new town. I will certainly go back there.

My language course went perfectly well and I can only give a very positive feedback!
The host family was perfect!! The lady was very friendly and always attentive to my needs. She took care of tidying the house (of course, everyone had to contribute, but a woman always does more than the others), cooking and cleaning. The food (she mostly cooked Italian dishes, with great skill) was delicious.
The school always organized everything very well, the groups were small and I always felt very comfortable. Besides, the water was free.
The other participants were simply fantastic, I exchanged addresses with some of them so we can see each other again soon!
I can’t say more, except that the evenings – particularly Fridays and Saturdays – were always good fun. It was almost like being on holiday!
Thank you and see you soon!

I really enjoyed my 2 months in Oxford! It’s so interesting to meet so many different people from all over the world. I liked the international language school; teachers suggested amazing subjects to talk about and we all felt involved in some way! My life at the Student House was very varied: it’s quite rare to live with people from France, Japan, Russia, Spain and Holland at the same time! In short: I learnt a lot, met nice people and had a great time! I can only recommend it! Thank you so much to ESL for organizing my trip to Oxford! And thank you to the Swiss team.
