General English Courses at Global School of English, Edinburgh

One of the many great advantages of studying with Global Schools is the small class sizes and personal attention you’ll receive.  Our morning classes have a maximum of nine students (apart from July/August, our peak periods, when we take up to 16 students in each class). Even better, the afternoon class sizes have a maximum of three students 

Every week, lessons are planned that meet the combined needs of the students in each class. Our aim is to deepen our students’ knowledge of the skills and systems of English and to extend their ability to use English in a practical way. Our courses are balanced across four strands. These are:

1)   Focus on developing your listening and reading skills

2)   Focus on developing your speaking and writing skills

3)   Language focussed learning, where students focus on grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation

4)   Fluency development, where students focus on producing language for communication in a range of contexts and situations (e.g. work, leisure, social, etc.)

APPLY NOW

You will study a balanced mix of skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and systems (grammar, vocabulary, functions and pronunciation), with an emphasis on practical, everyday communication.

We carry out weekly tests to make sure that you are progressing and we do regular checks to see if you are meeting your goals. Our teachers work hard to make sure that you are being challenged and are that you are improving your own weak areas.

We make our lessons fun, interesting and useful. We give all students the chance to suggest lesson topics, classroom activities and areas of language to study, meaning that there is always something to gain from our classes.
