The European Summer School of Arts and Languages at Oxford was established in 1979 and soon built up a reputation throughout Europe and beyond for its courses in English language and literature, theatre, dance, film-making, music and painting.

These are held at one of the Oxford University  colleges, in surroundings renowned for their beauty and historical interest, and occasionally at Winchester College, one of the oldest schools in England, and probably the best. Le Monde and other leading European newspapers have praised the Summer School for matching the standards of the centres of educational excellence at which it has been held.

Tuition in English language and literature is given to groups of no more than ten pupils every morning by teachers who are themselves English-speaking but have a thorough knowledge of the problems of learning English as a foreign language.

They are chosen for their talent, experience and qualifications and for their ability to share and understand their pupils' enthusiasms and interests.  All have degrees, from Oxford, Cambridge and other universities, as well as other diplomas.  Our staff has included heads of schools, heads of English departments and university lecturers.  The classes are conducted entirely in English and are an exciting introduction to the works of some outstanding writers, painters and architects.
