August 2011 - Adults
…to the Oxford English Centre! Here is the Social Activities Programme we’ve organised for you during your stay in Oxford.
In this booklet you will find details of all the activities planned for the time you are here. Please check in advance what you will be doing each day so you know where and when to meet and if you need to bring anything. Please read it very carefully. On your first day you may be shown some of the useful sights and meeting places around Oxford. The main meeting places are Caramba Café or Carfax Tower. Please check carefully that you know where you should be meeting for each activity so that you don’t miss anything. It is very important that you carry your STUDENT CARD/DRIVING LICENCE OR I.D. AT ALL TIMES. Without it, you may not be able to take part in some social activities. The weather and the programme may change. Keep checking the Social Activities Notice Boards. More information about tours and activities is provided on these boards.
Important: All students under 18 must return to their host families by 22.30 at the latest. This is our school rule and must be respected. SATURDAY EXCURSIONS: PLEASE SIGN UP WITH US FOR EACH EXCURSION YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND BEFORE WEDNESDAY OF THE SAME WEEK BECAUSE THERE ARE ONLY A LIMITED NUMBER OF SPACES AVAILABLE FOR EACH TRIP. If you have any problems or questions, please come and talk to one of us and we will be happy to help you! Best wishes,
Rachel and Tom Social Activities Organisers
