English Evening Classes

This six week evening English course combines professional (business) English and general English every Tuesday and Thursday from 6.30-8.30pm. It is especially designed for international adults living and working in Edinburgh who want to improve their advanced (B2+) English language skills, fluency and accuracy for work and daily life in Britain.

During two dynamic weekly classes with a highly experienced English teacher in a small group of 6 students, you will:

  • watch, read about and discuss topical issues (e.g. from TED, BBC, The Guardian, FutureLearn)
  • study business and professional language for a variety of contexts (e.g. emails, meetings, presentations, negotiations, diplomacy, phone expressions, CV/LinkedIn profile writing)
  • receive correction on your mistakes
  • get personalised language exercises to develop your weaknesses
  • learn important everyday and professional vocabulary and expressions
  • have the opportunity to ask questions about the language you use in your daily life and work
  • join a like-minded community of international adults where you can make new friends and contacts!

What happens in class?

English for Work

Your Tuesday class focuses on professional English for work, helping you use better English and feel more confident when speaking with clients and colleagues professionally and when chatting informally.

You will learn through interactive and practical activities, including workplace simulations, projects, language training and homework. These Business English classes focus on a combination of the following*:

  • How to give presentations in English
  • Appropriate language for meetings in English
  • Best conventions for writing emails in English
  • Practise English telephoning, Skyping and teleconferencing
  • How to communicate diplomatically in English
  • Appropriate ‘style’ (i.e. formal vs. informal) of speaking and writing in different situations
  • Negotiating skills in English
  • Improve your CV, cover letter and LinkedIn profile in English
  • Job interview practice in English
  • Improve social English & how to network effectively

*Note: class content may vary from the above depending on the objectives and interests of the students enrolled, and on the teacher’s analysis of students’ needs.

General English

On Thursdays, you will improve your advanced general English through discussion, grammar/vocabulary training, interactive tasks and language-in-context (e.g. articles, TED talks, and podcasts). Your friendly teacher will also correct your mistakes, suggest alternative expressions and answer questions about anything you’re confused about!

You’ll be given homework and language exercises to practise in between classes and develop your language weaknesses. You will sometimes be asked to do a little preparation for class by reading, watching or listening to real-life materials, and to work on mini projects and presentations.

Why choose Venture English?

  • We keep our classes small (6 students) so that you can receive more focused support from your teacher than is possible in larger groups, while still enjoying a more affordable course than private lessons.
  • We're a small, teacher-run school, so we treat you like a person, not a statistic. We genuinely care about your experience with us and your progress.
  • Our teachers are qualified and very experienced, as well as fascinating people with broad interests who have a lot of life experience to bring into the classroom.
  • We’re perfectly situated for you to continue practising English even after class, as Venture English is at Summerhall, Edinburgh’s most adventurous arts, events and education venue!
