Free English Classes is run by St. Ebbe’s Church, Oxford.
Teachers at Free English Classes are volunteers from the St. Ebbe’s Church family. We are unable to guarantee that all teachers have training qualifications, but many do.
The lessons are intended for beginner (CEF level A1 & A2) and intermediate (CEF level B1) learners, and only aim to provide additional English language support. There is also an Advanced Conversation class. These classes are not meant to be a complete language course or replace a course in a language school.
Basic-level groups focus mainly on everyday spoken language. Intermediate groups use mostly expository texts which describe or explain things. We also include narrative texts from time to time. In addition we have separate groups for more advanced students (CEF level B2 and above), using more or less the same material as the intermediate students but in a more challenging way.
You will get the most out of the lessons if you come regularly, take home the worksheet each week and revise what you have learnt.
Upon arrival, you will be required to register your name and contact details solely for communication purposes. This information will be subject to Data Protection Act 2018.
