THE LOCATION

Edinburgh is a centre of culture with its extraordinary architectural heritage and historical magnificence. Built on seven hills, the city is divided into the medieval Old Town and the Georgian New Town. The city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Edinburgh is well-known for its friendly people and its compact, green environment. It is one of the most student-friendly cities. The inspiring Capital has an ideal mix of shopping, entertainment, culture and history. It is a safe and prosperous city with plenty of parks and open public spaces. Edinburgh’s excellent architecture ranges
from ancient churches to monumental Victorian masterpieces - all dominated by a castle in the city’s heart.

Edinburgh Castle is the city’s most famous monument, built on an extinct volcano, at the top of the Royal Mile. Edinburgh is also a city of fine gardens and open spaces, Princes Street Gardens lie between the Old and New Towns.

Edinburgh is well known for the annual Edinburgh Festival which takes place in August. There is something for everyone: great pubs and restaurants, national museums and galleries, comedy, theatre and cinemas.

COURSES

Teachers deliver a personalised programme designed  to develop the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. They aim to increase student's awareness of English grammar and to extend their vocabulary. In  class students will work in pairs or small groups so they have the chance to speak as much English as possible. Teachers plan and prepare their lessons so that they are interactive and motivating, therefore students  will have a lot of fun in class. At the end of the course, students receive a certificate indicating the progress they have made.

Students will have to do a s standard placement test at the start of the course, all teaching material is provided, there are 15 hours of classes a week. Classes are held in the mornings and are limited to a maximum of 15 students ensuring optimum learning conditions.

There is a variety of student centred, interactive learning activities and resources, well planned English Language lessons that encourage the development of reading, writing, listening and speaking, a range of learning approaches and activities to meet the needs of all. Learning approaches  reflect that students have different preferred learning styles. There are opportunities for students to work in a variety of groupings: as individuals, in pairs, small groups and as a whole class and a  range of high quality extra-curricular activities which allow the students to develop their English Language skills in a more informal context. There is also an accompanied half day and full day excursion each week. Successful students are awarded a ‘Certificate of Completion’ detailing achievements and skill levels.
