Oxford House provides extracurricular English classes in primary and secondary schools in Barcelona for students, parents and teachers. We provide participating schools with English teachers, materials and structured courses that are adapted to each school’s schedule and academic needs. Classes are given on location in the primary or secondary school.
Our extracurricular English courses follow a plan of studies integrated with official Cambridge ESOL and Trinity College examinations. This means that we can measure students’ progress within a framework recognized internationally.
Classes are focussed on speaking and listening comprehension on common real-life topics that students might encounter outside of school currently or in the future. Students also practice writing and reading comprehension.
Our experience shows that for extracurricular English courses to be successful they should:
• A virtual bulletin board on the home page with news from the Director of Studies. • Information for parents about the current academic year. • A page for each class with the students#8217; work, the program of studies and attendance list. • A multimedia gallery of photos and videos from our classes. • A page with resources, both online and in Barcelona, for teaching children and teens English.
We believe that publishing our students#8217; work in an online portfolio offers advantages for our students, their parents and our teachers. Visit the Zona Joven to read more about these advantages and to have a look at our students#8217; work.
We have extensive experience educating students from 4 to 17 years old in English. Our courses are focussed on students’ needs, taking into account their level and objectives.
Additionally, our school is a training centre for English teachers. Among the courses we provide for English teachers are specific courses on teaching English to children and teens.
The objective of this course is to encourage parents to practice and improve their English. Theses courses have practical content provided in a relaxed environment. Our teachers are native English speakers who are certified and experienced in teaching English to adults of differing ages, with disparate needs and learning preferences.
• Classes take place at the primary or secondary school that the parents’ children attend
• Small groups of 6 to 10 people
• Teachers who are native speakers and qualified
• All levels available
This practical course will help your teaching staff to develop their confidence with English through teaching techniques adapted to your school’s needs. We negotiate the specific objectives of each course with you to ensure that they are relevant, practical and priced fairly.
