Individual Course

Based on a level test and needs analysis, completed before you arrive, we will design a course that meets your needs. During your stay, you will be able to discuss your course with your tutor and adapt your syllabus. 

Mornings, language input

In the morning, you will focus on studying new language. Depending on your needs, the focus may be on grammar or vocabulary. There will also be a chance to practise reading, listening, speaking or writing as necessary. 

Afternoon, business skills  

Following lunch, the emphasis is on business skills. Our experienced tutors will provide you with authentic materials to practise:

  • Presenting

  • Negotiating

  • Socialising

  • Participating in meetings

  • Calling and emailing

You will receive detailed feedback on your performance in each of these areas and advice on how to improve.

Outside the classroom

At ELA, learning is not limited to the classroom. We believe you should have a chance to practise language in real-life situations. With the guidance of your tutor you can practise your skills in shops, restaurants, markets and on company visits.

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.
