Hi there:

I can offer some insight into Oxford English, as I started the school Smile

I moved from Vlad two years ago, but it is my understanding that they still have the three Vlad locations which were there when I left. All of the schools have excellent academic directors who are friendly and easy to work with. The schools are well-appointed and clean.

The company pays on time and pays rather well for that area of the country. I never had a problem with the owners and Oleg, the executive director. It is also one of the only schools who will ensure that you are legally employed with a proper work visa. They try hard to find you accommodation not far from where you work.

Which of the three locations are you interviewing for?

I can answer essentially any question you might have. I believe another former Oxford employee posts on here occasionally too, though I can't say what his experience was like, as he arrived right as I was leaving.

Best, JP

And in case you're wondering, I've had JP's advice on other things and he's always been helpful, so I think his advice about the school will be straight up.
