Discounted English classes for NHS staff in Oxford

Kheiron School of English is very happy to offer a 10% discount on all our classes for NHS staff in Oxford.

Hospital workers who want to improve their English or prepare for an exam such as IELTS often have problems finding a school which offers classes that fit with their work commitments. We believe that our flexible, part-time English classes solve this problem. You can choose the days and times that are convenient for you, and it is fine for you to change your timetable if your shifts change.

No. There are no registration fees.

You will study a combination of speaking, listening, grammar, pronunciation, reading and writing. We use a rotating timetable system to ensure that students receive a good balance of language and skills work, and always aim to take our students’ needs and interests into account when planning classes. You can read more about this and see an example timetable here.

You will need to bring pens, pencils, and some paper. It is a good idea to have a folder to keep everything organised. We will provide all the study materials used in class.

Yes – all students will be given a certificate stating their final level and how long they have studied at Kheiron.

At Kheiron, we don’t give students regular, formal progress tests. We prefer to assess students continuously, based on their contributions in class as well as their homework. We organise a private tutorial for part-time students every 8 weeks with the Principal or Director of Studies, so that we can discuss your progress, areas to improve, and future goals and study ideas. Students can move up to higher levels when they (and their teachers) feel that they are ready.
