What belongs to you but others use it more than you do?
Answer: Your name
At Simply English Edinburgh we are proud of our name. Proud to be different. Proud to be simple. We have spent all of this month welcoming new students to our school for the Simply English Edinburgh experience. So what is that you ask? We want to offer you a truly Edinburgh experience. We encourage our students to go out and live like the locals and experience the culture. We believe language and culture go hand in hand!
The General English classes are proving to be a great success and we have had some great feedback from our students about the varied content and huge progress which is being made by all. We are currently holding an Advanced class and an Upper-Intermediate class although this can change depending on numbers. Our flexible timetable varies depending on the needs of our students.
We began the month of July by welcoming our new teacher, Joules! A native of Edinburgh Joules has just recently graduated from The University of Liverpool. She is teaching the morning intensive English classes for the summer. She has already made her mark on the school and has settled in with ease.
The new students this month have participated in some very educational, fun and spooky activities so far this summer. We have explored the vast museums of Edinburgh, been to a few pubs for midweek drinks after lessons and also we have been to Nando’s for dinner one night. Our favourite activity so far this summer has to be the Ghost Tour! Our tour guide Fraser took us all over the city and explained the weird and wonderful history of Edinburgh’s dark past. We learned about murders, beheadings and cannibalism to name but a few! After the tour we decided to relax in Princes Street Gardens for a few hours and discuss what we had learned. One student cleverly noted that alcohol was the cause of many of the problems in Edinburgh’s past!

Soon we are going to be talking about exams as August is the month for CAE, FCE and IELTS intensive preparation courses. The school will be running lots of different classes with a flexible timetable (morning and evening classes) so hopefully there will be spaces for everyone interested. We have already almost fully booked an IELTS class beginning on July 31st! Please contact us for availability and timetables. As always there are only a maximum of 6 students per class so spaces are filling up fast!
