We have selected some links to share with you here. We choose them on the basis of their usefulness at the time of selection. Subsequent changes to the sites are beyond our control.

  • Abodes of Oxford :  would you like to live with a British family in Oxford?
    Abodes of Oxford is an excellent small company specialising in providing a British family for you to stay with while you are in Oxford. This gives you the chance to experience British culture from the inside and to talk in English with Britsh people. You can usually have the option of Bed & Breakfast or Half-Board (bed, breakfast and evening meal); of course Half-Board gives you more opportunity for conversation. If you are doing a programme with OPE, tell Abodes of Oxford when you book with them.
