TOLES Legal-English courses modelled on tuition at the University of Oxford consist in one-to-one tuition, guided home study, free reading materials, and AV lectures.
Alumni regard one-to-one tuition as the most powerful element of our methodology as it motivates, inspires, and promotes understanding of how Legal English is used.
The English Language Centre Oxford is a TOLES training centre that offers online distance learning courses in Legal-English, with guided home study and private tuition.
Dual methodologies and one-to-one tuition will equip you to pass your exam with a high grade and gain practical knowledge that relates to your professional activities.
When you contact a tutor, you will be invited to complete a TOLES placement test and request feedback and best advice on studying for your Legal-English examination.
Your TOLES course will be modular and customised to meet your home study needs and it will enable you to gain a competitive advantage at work and elsewhere.
A TOLES course consists in four modules that deliver sixteen guided home study assignments and the same number of one-to-one online private tutorials.
Guided study assignments call for critical reading and listening, written argument in essay form, and presentation of this work during a one-hour online tutorial.
This online distance learning methodology addresses the vital need to understand how Legal-English should be used for clear and unequivocal communication.
TOLES courses fully support guided home study and save the time, cost, and inconvenience of attendance at a less-effective conventional group Legal English class.
The Foundation, Higher, and Advanced courses afford guided home study to ensure both test-readiness and customised acquisition of practical knowledge.
