“I had the opportunity to become an English tourist during my free time and this was fun!”
“The experience was incredible!! From the first moment we only spoke in English and after a few hours I was also thinking in English. The best was that it happened in a natural way and I could feel comfortable.
Italy has a natural charm and Pian di Marte is a calm and very beautiful area in Umbria. Read More
I also had the opportunity to become an English tourist during my free time and this was fun. I practised English preparing information about the places I decided to visit, then also in the restaurants, during the cultural visits and at a local festival”.
“An unforgettable experience and extremely useful. I strongly recommend it to everybody who wants to improve their English!”
“For some time, I was looking for an intensive English course but none of them convinced me until I discovered this opportunity at Oakfield Umbria. A personalized course of one week in a wonderful region of Italy with the most wonderful teacher in the world….Emma! Read More
When you have high-intermediate level of English, it is very hard to advance and other people recommended me this kind of chance!
For me, this intensive course was a “before” and “after”…..a deep dive into grammar, listening, conversation, discussion and communication skills among other things. It was a mix between what I wanted and what I needed once this was identified by Emma.
I remember those breakfasts in the garden with a wonderful landscape discussing some interesting papers focused on my medical field. The classes in the morning and afternoon went very quickly due to the very dynamic rhythm and the excellent preparation of the topics. It was a luxury to have a teacher for myself, who was correcting every mistake I made, not only in every single conversation but also written. Thanks to her patience, I still keep in mind every piece of advice and I have corrected a lot of common errors. And I also had the opportunity to visit some beautiful Italian villages with Emma where in a very relaxing way we were reviewing grammar and talking about history, culture or life in general.
I would like also to highlight the friendly and kind environment that I had during my stay there. Wonderful food and a beautiful cottage with a swimming pool in the middle of Umbria with spectacular sunsets! I felt at home!
After that week, I have to say that I felt at once my improvements! More fluency when speaking and more confidence! People around me also noted this change!
Thank you so much Emma!!!”.
“Oakfield, a place to go!”
“We spent a week at Oakfield last summer: Laura did a photography course with Ezio and I did an English course with Emma.
The English course was drawn up by Emma specifically for me, following my request and needs, done partially in the house, and partially outside. At home we played Scrabble, we cocked a meal with the help of masterchef Ezio and we swam in the pool to refresh our bodies and minds.Read More
