General English Language Course
Full time – 15 hours per week
This English course is for people who wish to improve their general level of English. The course concentrates on improving all aspects of your English but we strongly believe in helping you to learn to speak English well so much of your time will be spent practising listening and speaking.
You can start this course on any Monday and choose to study from 1 week to a full academic year. You start your lessons at 9.30am and work until 11.00am. You then have a break where you can relax in our lovely garden or use the internet to email your friends and family. There is also a student’s room with tea and coffee facilities and some light refreshments.
At 11.30am you go back into class and study until 1.00pm. This lesson after break is where you will do much of your conversation and listening practise. If you are interested in seeing the beautiful city of Edinburgh a bit closer, we offer free walks and talks about the city in the afternoons* . We can also arrange specially prepared tours of the local monuments and visitor attractions during this time.
