Great feedback from around the globe

Five students were approached today in class for feedback on their experience here at OLC and we were delighted by their responses, which we will share with you below:

“Since I arrived here my English has improved a lot. The teachers are really friendly and helpful and they make you feel confident and comfortable.”  Franco Gastelum (Mexico)

“The best thing is we have small classes which gives you the opportunity to have personal attention. You meet people from all over the world here and learn cultural differences. Oxford is a wonderful place to study and your English will improve much quicker than learning in your own country. I chose Oxford because it is the best place to learn and I’m really happy at OLC.”  Enkeleda Mata (Albania)

“This school is very helpful due to the classes which are interesting and fun. Teachers are very motivated and enthusiastic and always well prepared. The school creates a good learning atmosphere for students and the staff are very kind and patient. It is a brilliant school. I would like to recommend to other people.”
Jarek Zielinski (Poland)

Exploring Oxford’s treasures

As a wind down towards the weekend, OLC students got together this afternoon to visit two of Oxford’s most distinctive landmarks – the Sheldonian Theatre, a spectacular Grade II listed building where Oxford University’s graduation ceremonies take place, and the famous circular domed Radcliffe Camera, an architectural gem housing some 600,000 books in underground rooms.

Students enjoyed learning about the history and significance of these two spectacular buildings situated in the heart of the city. They also seemed rather captivated by the imposing emperor stone heads which surround the gates of the Sheldonian, although some students did find their stares a little intimidating!

Time to put on those festive hats!

Everyone got in the festive spirit today at OLC’s and Abacus’ annual Christmas party.

Students couldn’t wait to pull their Christmas crackers (a wonderful British tradition!), which presented them with an attractive king’s hat to wear for the occasion and also the opportunity to share a joke (typically a bad one coming from a cracker!) with their fellow classmates.

As always, the college’s admin team put on a fantastic spread of buffet food to cater for all tastes, so there was something there for everyone.

The Student Forum also got involved and organised a Secret Santa, whereby students exchanged Christmas presents anonymously, bringing much laughter and joviality to the occasion.

A very Merry Christmas to all our students and teachers! We hope you have a good break and look forward to seeing you back in Oxford in the New Year!
