Founded in 1979, theOxford School of English now runs three successful academies in Oviedo, capital of Asturias.
The schools cater for students of all ages, from children to adults. As well as teaching general English, the school offers students the chance to prepare for Cambridge University’s Main Suite exams.
Teachers teach an average of 25 hours of classes a week. These hours typically cover the core teaching hours (Monday to Thursday 4pm – 8pm) with the remaining hours being made up during mornings (maybe 2 or 3 mornings a week), Friday afternoons and alternate Saturday mornings. These may include general English classes, conversation or business classes.
Core classes are taught in the academy, whilst other classes may be in the academy or on premises of business clients, teaching either groups or individuals. All teachers generally teach a range of age groups and levels of English.
The academy offers both young learners and adult students the opportunity to study for University of Cambridge ESOL exams. Therefore a number of adult classes involve preparing students for these exams.
Class sizes are generally small (under 10 students) and teachers enjoy good friendly relationships with students and other members of the teaching team.
