At SBC Oxford we provide engaging, communicative English language lessons that have been designed specifically for young learners. All students receive 15 hours of tuition per week and lessons are taught by professionally qualified teachers, in a supportive, fun and multinational environment. We have maximum class sizes of 15 students to help create a dynamic learning environment for our students, in which each child’s needs can be met.
Across both courses available at SBC Oxford, our aim is to develop not only language skills, but also transferable skills that will help our young learners prepare for successful futures in the 21st century.
21st Century Skills
Our courses assist children in nurturing key learning and communication strategies, including:
working creatively with others
building confidence in communicating clearly
developing social and cross-cultural skills
achieving effective teamwork skills
improving problem-solving skills
Time To Shine
To develop these skills, all SBC Oxford students will participate in our Time to Shine lessons twice a week. These are dynamic and interactive team challenges, for students to complete in a practical setting. Our innovative and social Time to Shine lessons encourage students to exchange ideas, collaborate, show initiative and improve their confidence, all whilst having fun. Previous Time to Shine challenges include the construction of a working marble run and the building of balloon-powered cars.
Additional Study Options
For young students who would benefit from specific additional tuition in English Speaking or English Writing skills, we offer Intensive English classes on two afternoons per week for an additional cost. Students will benefit from an extra 5 hours of tuition per week.
