Who are we?
Oxford House College is a leading English language school in the heart of Istanbul. The Istiklal Street Branch is on the European side of Istanbul, directly in the center of Taksim. Taksim is the hub of Istanbul and is popular with locals and tourists alike for its range of cultural activities, including theatres, exhibitions and festivals; shops to suit all pockets; restaurants (Turkish and International) and nightlife.
Our students join us from all over the world, with many now and in the past from Turkey, Iran, Spain, France, Russia, Germany, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, South Korea and many more. Having such a varied and diverse student body allows students to interact with an international community whose only shared language is English. In addition to our main teaching programs, we offer a range of activities from film, grammar and conversation clubs to monthly trips out with a teacher. For many of our students, Oxford House College, Istanbul becomes not only a school, but a home away from home
The School itself is in a comfortable, modern building and features the following amenities:
A beautiful coffee house with a terrace overlooking the city
Seven floors with 20 in-use classrooms

The teaching approach with all levels is based on the communicative method, which means that there is a focus on teaching students the language they will need to communicate in real-life situations. In reading and listening, you will learn how to use the same kind of comprehension skills that you use in your first language. In speaking and writing, you will practice your English in authentic, real-world tasks and activities. We know that every student has different needs and interests, as well as different learning styles, so by integrating the best of different methodologies and providing excellent resources, we are able to plan lessons to suit everyone. Every week the teachers take feedback from their classes to ensure that each student’s personal needs are being met.
Our courses are linked to the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework (CEF), which describes expected language knowledge and skills at different stages of learning.
