What will my course be like?

The first 90-minute session has a grammatical focus and is coursebook-based but will include speaking, reading, writing and listening exercises to cement the grammatical knowledge, further reinforced by weekly testing.

The second 90-minute session takes a weekly themed project such as the creation of a magazine to ensure the students use their productive skills within a fun and imaginative context. The students will be encouraged to design, research and collate their projects before presenting them on the Friday afternoon. To complete this project, the students will be placed into small mixed-nationality groups (as far as possible) so that not only will the finished project be in English, but also the lingua franca used to design, negotiate and arrange the content will be English.

Information for Parents

Notes for parents and guardians on OEC Teen courses.

How we will take care of your child while she/he is studying with us

Your child will be supervised when in class and on activities organised by the college; however, it should be understood that the OEC Teen Programme is not a residential course and students will not be supervised 24-hours a day. Your child will travel to and from the college independently and will have free time on Sundays and in the evenings. 

In the College

  • Students on the teen programme will study in classes with other students aged 14 to 17. 
  • All OEC staff have enhanced DBS checks (Disclosure & Barring Service – the British ‘police check’). 

To ensure your child’s welfare while he or she is studying at OEC, he/she will

  • Be required to sign in and out of the college on a daily basis in reception. We will attempt to contact any student under 18 who has not arrived at the college within 30 minutes of the start of his/her first class. If we cannot contact the student by telephone or at the host family, we will contact you, your registered agent and/or the police as appropriate. 
  • Wear a lanyard (supplied by OEC) to identify them to all staff as under-18. Teen activity programme 
  • During morning activities your child will be supervised by college staff. During some excursions, students may have free time for shopping, but there will always be a member of staff nearby if they need help and all students are given a contact phone number. 

 Away from the College

For accommodation organised by OEC, all students under 18 years will be accommodated in homestay where adults living in the house will have enhanced DBS (police) checks.

  • If accommodation for your child is not arranged by OEC, you MUST provide us with full address and contact details of where he/she will be staying, including the name of the person who will be responsible for your child. 
  • All students must return to their homestay by 22.30. If they are late, the homestay will contact the college and we will attempt to contact the student. If we are unable to, we will contact you, your registered agent and/or the police as appropriate. For any activities after this time including overnight stays, you must give consent in writing. The college reserves the right to amend or refuse such requests in line with college policy and regulatory guidelines. 
  • Your child will travel between the school and the host family unsupervised. 
  • Your child will not be supervised during their free time, i.e. between the end of their lessons at the school and returning to their homestay or at weekends.
  • We strongly advise students aged under 18 to book our airport transfer service to avoid any problems upon arrival. 

Medical Emergencies

  • By enrolling your child with OEC, you consent to college management organising medical treatment in an emergency if this is recommended by a medical professional, and to qualified staff performing first aid on your child if necessary
