OISE classes are structured to maximise the contact time between teacher and student. OISE is committed to its policy of teaching in small groups (1:1 or 1:4 per class) to ensure that students benefit from individual attention even within a group environment.
Whether you wish to study for professional, academic or practical purposes, OISE has a course for you. We have programmes to suit all levels from absolute beginner to professional linguist. As an OISE student, you will be tested on arrival and allocated a class and tutor appropriate to your level. OISE's objective is to help its students succeed. Every aspect of the programme has therefore been structured to meet this focused objective.
Course books are used only as resource materials, our teachers, as with every good English teacher, produce their own lessons adhering to a prescribed syllabus. Therefore, you will not repeat courses that you have studied in Taiwan. Workbook materials are produced in-house and are of the highest academic quality.
At OISE, we believe that the key to language acquisition is confidence and, therefore, the pattern of coaching is: confidence ➝ fluency ➝ accuracy. Once an individual has increased their own confidence in the language, the skills of fluency and accuracy will follow naturally.
All teachers are native speakers with a qualification to teach English to International students, as well as a University degree. We have teachers who are published EFL authors, or have worked in law, business or in other fields. So if you are looking for a general course or have more specifics we have a teacher who will match your requirements.
