In-Oxford teaching

Due to uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus we have, for the time being, suspended face-to-face teaching in Oxford. Please sign up to our mailing list to be kept informed as in-person teaching becomes available.

Under ordinary circumstances, our language teaching includes Arabic, Classics (including Aramaic), Chinese, Farsi, French, German, Greek (Ancient Greek and Modern Greek), Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Portuguese, Russian, Sanskrit, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

Language courses are offered at levels 1-6 and there are conversation classes available at intermediate, upper intermediate and advanced levels. Find your language level.

Live, online interactive language classes

For the 2020-21 academic year we launched Weekly Oxford Worldwide (WOW) – a new programme of interactive classes, delivered online and fully tutor-led, based on our in-Oxford teaching. These classes allowed students to meet online in small groups to maximise interaction and enhance fluency in a friendly, supportive environment.

These classes were a huge success and we hope to offer them again from autumn 2021. Sign up to our mailing list to be kept informed.
