Throughout your course there is continual assessment through speaking and writing tasks as well as formal weekly testing and monthly tutorials. At ELA we place great emphasis on students feeling they are learning and learning fast!

Our courses teach and practise new language in creative, student centred lessons. Structured classes focus on greater fluency and accuracy in use of grammatical structure, vocabulary and colloquial English. In our friendly, multi-national school, students quickly develop practical communication skills which they can further practise in the wider English speaking environment.

Computer technology is in every classroom and teachers achieve lesson aims through a wide range of resources and activities including fieldtrips to Edinburgh’s many historical and cultural sites. We are an authorised Cambridge assessment centre and students can progress to take external qualifications such as the Cambridge ESOL suite or IELTS exams.

All courses are taught by qualified teachers.

Our happy customers

I studied in ELA just for three months and it's a pity that time flew so fast. It was a great experience and unforgettable time. The school provides an intensive program for students who have willing to improve English skills. There are professional high-qualified teachers with individual approaching to students. I feel that my English level has boosted. Thanks for my progress in English to Steven, Hedvig and Duncan! My group was really international, so I met new friends around the world, from Monaco, Mexico, Spain, Germany, Italy, Taiwan, China. ELA is located in the centre of Edinburgh where you are surrounded by the history of Scotland, every day you can see the Edinburgh Castle through a school window.  If I have a chance to return Edinburgh, I will certainly be at ELA again.

Just perfect. Class time doesn't feel like class time, but just as a chat between friends. Still, you get to learn a lot. The staff is very friendly and prepared.
