ORA 2017

I guess action speak louder than words - I came to ORA twice, that's how much I loved it.

The first time was in 2016 at Balliol College where I took "Oxford Enterprise Program" which is an introduction course to Business and Economics.

The second time was in 2017 at Merton College where I took the "Public speaking" course, which is a course that teaches you how to make a good speech (posture, language, etc).

The funny part is that I met my friend who was at ORA Balliol 2016, Sergio Carrasco, at ORA Merton this year. *Seems like I wasn't the only one enjoying the ORA course. *

The extra activities were fun too! We visited the Ashmolean museum, went to le Manoir by Raymond Blanc and Oxford is simply a gorgeous city!

Thank you ORA for this amazing experience!

Oxford Royale Academy 2017

Actions speak louder than words, so, I will just tell you that I went to ORA twice (in 2016 and 2017).

I loved my first experience at Balliol College in 2016. I am very interested in business and economics so I took the Oxford Enterprise Program. It was great.

I decided to come back in 2017 to learn Public Speaking at Merton College and to be honest, it was even better.

ORA really listens to every single opinion of yours and really try improve. That's how you know that you are in good hands.

The teachers are great and the friends that I made at ORA are so precious to me. They come from all over the world. We still see each other very often (that's when you know they are real friends and not just some acquaintances).

ORA changed my vision of life and made me realise that I am a part of the movers and the shakers.

How can this program be improved?
More excursions outside Oxford ( for example: a weekend in London)

At Oxford Royale Academy, I took a course in public speaking. Our instructor was incredibly prepared and engaging. We studied TED talks and read ancient speeches i.e. Mark Anthony's eulogy for Julius Caesar. In side sessions, we practiced vocal exercises and practiced presenting speeches/pitches/seminars to different audiences.

ORA students come from all over the world. Over the course of two weeks, I made many friends (from other courses as well) and learned much from them.

ORA plans a variety of activities outside of classes. We ate at Le Manoir, played real tennis, tried our hands at croquet, stared at Raphael's drawings in the Ashmolean, and wandered around Blenheim Palace.

How can this program be improved?
Extend the program by another week!
