English Immersion Edinburgh
For students who want to improve their natural English in real-life contexts, Venture English offers an exciting new way to learn English with a highly qualified and experienced teacher. Enjoy a tailor-made English immersion holiday programme in Edinburgh!
While you explore the culture, history and lifestyle of Edinburgh, your teacher works with you to communicate in English better during your English immersion course.
Forget the classroom. The world is a classroom!
Your talented English teacher will carefully monitor your communication skills, and give you feedback on your strengths, correct your mistakes and suggest exercises and materials to help you improve further. And, of course, you can ask all those questions about English that you’ve always wanted to ask!
You can book from one to 30 hours a week of private English immersion classes that take place in and around Edinburgh. It is also available for small groups – just contact us for prices.
Together with your teacher you can visit Edinburgh’s medieval Old Town, enjoy live folk music in a traditional pub, join in a ceilidh (lively Scottish dancing), go whisky tasting, walk up the ancient volcano of Arthur’s Seat, or take day trips to coastal villages along the John Muir Way, a long distance hiking route.
Whatever your interests, we can design an active and fascinating itinerary that suits you.
And the best part? While you’re enjoying the holiday-of-a-lifetime, you will improve your English speaking, listening and language use!
Venture English can arrange homestays with independent hosts for students who want to study with us, typically for 1-8 weeks.
We have carefully chosen local hosts who are warm and friendly, close to school (5-30 minutes by bus or on foot) and have comfortable, pleasant homes where you can study, relax and socialise in English.
You can use the kitchen to prepare meals, chill out in the living room, have a hot shower day or night, access the internet via wifi, and practise your English with your host.
Prices for bed and breakfast with a local host start at £180 per week. Our one-time fee for arranging your homestay is £35.
Arrange Your Own Accommodation
When we travel, we want accommodation that suits our budget and taste, so we always use Airbnb. With Airbnb, you can choose the kind of accommodation, place and price that suits you.
