Venture English provides private and mini group English language courses in Edinburgh for international adults to develop professionally and personally. Our classes are dynamic and engaging, and we tailor the lesson content and approach to the needs and interests of each individual learner.
We are more than qualified and experienced English teachers… We also have careers in business, science, academia, outdoor adventure, the arts, and more. We’ve lived all over the world and speak other languages. We’re truly interesting people with real life experience to bring to your classes!
We have welcomed company managers and teams from across Europe, international employees and university students resident in Edinburgh, and travellers here to ‘brush up’ their English skills or enjoy an English language holiday while experiencing Scotland’s culture, character and landscape.
Venture English is based at Summerhall, Edinburgh’s most adventurous multi-media and education centre. Between classes, you can enjoy this buzzing, creative hub of art, music, culture and innovation! We are near Edinburgh University, the beautiful Meadows and the historic Old Town, Castle and Royal Mile.
