What does, “the proof of the pudding is in the eating” mean?

The English expression, “the proof of the pudding is in the eating” means that, even if it looks very nice, until you have tried something for yourself it is impossible to know whether it is any good.

This applies not just to puddings but also to English language schools. That’s why, every term, we always ask our students for their feedback on Global School of English. For our third term of 2017, from July to September, the results are, we are delighted to report, extremely good.

There are three statistics we would particularly like to highlight. Firstly, 100% of those who gave us feedback said that they like the friendliness of the School. This is very important to us: we want our students to enjoy their time in Scotland and to feel welcome here.

Secondly, 99% of our students would recommend the School. That reflects the third, and most important, statistic; that 99% agree or strongly agree that their English has improved as a result of studying with us. That really is the proof of the pudding!

You can see the table with all the results below. If you are thinking of studying English in the UK then we hope that this encourages you to come to Global School of English in Edinburgh.
