At Simply English Edinburgh joining a class doesn’t mean following a standard course book from start to finish with lots of grammar exercises for homework. We focus on communicative skills in order to make a noticeable difference in your English comprehension and production. Speaking, listening and pronunciation are at the core of our lessons and as there are only a maximum of 6 students per class there are plenty of opportunities to practice these skills in pairs, small groups or with individual attention from your teacher. We find this method to be extremely beneficial, especially when living in Edinburgh and getting on with your day to day life through English.

We use a variety of interactive methods to provide clear instructions and then our students have the opportunity to actively engage- this is not a passive learning experience! We have all of the best learning resources on hand to build classes which will keep you learning and immersed in the language.

If you are intent on more individual attention or wish to see fast results then one to one lessons are the best option for you. If you chose this option then the focus of the lesson is entirely up to you. We can provide you with an individual needs analysis and incorporate the best teaching methods to improve your weaknesses. Many students opt to focus on learning specific work related vocabulary, pronunciation or just improving areas of grammar or writing. You will need to be highly motivated as these classes are high intensity and also require specific homework assignments but it is a fantastic option to speed up your progress.



Courses especially designed to help you prepare for language exams such as Academic and General IELTS and FCE, CAE and CPE (Cambridge).
