Online one-to-one tuition and dual methodologies will bring together TOLES exam preparation, use of Legal-English, acquisition of practical knowledge related to your professional, academic, or social activities, and a learning experience similar to undergraduate study at the University of Oxford.

We are a Registered Training Centre for TOLES examination candidates and offer fee-based online distance learning courses with one-to-one tuition and customised guided-study assignments to TOLES examination candidates across the world.

The TOLES organisation is a member of the International Division of the Law Society of England and Wales, and these Legal-English exams are recognised by major firms throughout the world. Among these are The Law Society of England and Wales; Linklaters Oppenhoff and Radler; Allen&Overy LLP; Baker and McKenzie; PricewaterhouseCoopers; KPMG; Sony Ericsson; Daimler Chrysler; the European Court of Justice; the European Central Bank; Deutsche Bundesbank; Qatar Steel Company; Qatar Petrochemical Corporation; DuPont; Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer; Siemens.

Our Fee-based TOLES courses are divided into four modules of equal length for flexibility that allows us to meet your individual learning requirements and offer a variety of payment options.

To start, you may enrol for a single 2-month module of four guided-study assignments, which call for a minimum of 56 hours work and study, together with attendance at four 1-hour sessions of online one-to-one tuition.

After that, you will have the opportunity to continue with Module 2 or complete the full 224-hour course and twelve more 1-hour sessions of online one-to-one tuition.

Each guided-study assignment includes access to interactive digital learning platforms, online reading materials and video lectures, and 1-hour of online one-to-one tuition.

Course content will be structured to a TOLES text book and customised guided-study assignments with prescribed online reading and AV materials, specific guidelines drawn up by your tutor, and a one-hour session of personal online one-to-one tuition during which your tutor will assess your written work for content and use of Legal-English, and discuss your subject knowledge.

TOLES Certificates are awarded at levels of Academic-English that lie between the B1 and C2 criteria of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. They are valued throughout the world as evidence of ability to use Legal-English in the professions, commerce, industry, education, and government departments.

We have students in the U.S.A. and Canada, South America, the U.K., the EU, the Middle East, Africa, Russia, China, Southeast Asia, India, and the rest of the world.
