English Language Courses in Edinburgh

Established in 2010, Global School of English is proud to be a Scottish-owned and family-run school with an excellent reputation for providing high quality English language tuition in a relaxed and welcoming environment in the heart of historic Edinburgh.

We have a regular programme of social and cultural activities. Regular trips include going to a ceilidh to learn Scottish country dancing, as well as the Scottish Parliament, Rosslyn Chapel and the Royal Botanic Garden. Whatever your interests, we shall do our best to ensure that you have an enjoyable and memorable stay in Edinburgh.

The teachers are very friendly – it’s not like a school! They help you with any questions you have; not just about English but about Edinburgh and Scotland. The classes are small so they have a lot of time for each student. They have definitely helped me improve my English.
