Our courses teach and practise new language in imaginative student centred lessons, where, structured classes focus on greater fluency and accuracy in English grammar, vocabulary and colloquial English. In our enjoyable multi-national school, students quickly develop practical communication skills which they can further practise in the wider English speaking environment.

Every classroom is outfitted with computers, and teachers achieve lesson aims through a wide range of resources and activities. These include field trips to Edinburgh’s many historical and cultural sites.
