Intensive English Course: 360° English

These days, it’s essential to be competent in English in both work and daily life. We need to compete in a global marketplace and interact confidently and enjoyably with people from across the world. With that in mind, Venture English has designed 360° English to help you become better at real-life English in a range of interpersonal and professional contexts. We even extend your learning beyond the classroom by including in your course fees an exciting cultural immersion evening programme!

You can take intensive 360° English (25 hours), or choose semi-intensive (15 hours) General English or Professional English. You can also combine this small group English course with private lessons so that you can prepare for a Cambridge or IELTS exam, receive individual language tuition for your specific profession, or explore the hidden highlights of Edinburgh while conversing with your teacher! It’s your choice.

Course Outline

Language Lab | 9.30-11.30am

During Language Lab, you will focus on developing essential general English, especially natural expressions, vocabulary and grammar, as well as speaking fluency and pronunciation. Classes involve discussions, language analysis and activities based around topical issues, from news items and documentaries to approaches in psychology and developments in environmental science. You will use real-life materials, such as articles and videos, so that you can experience real language in context. To support your in-class learning, you’ll be set reading and writing homework and given tips and exercises to develop language weaknesses.

Project Workshop | 11.45am-12.45pm

Project Workshop is a highly effective immersion learning experience in which students engage in team projects and presentations that simulate the workplace and other group contexts. This daily workshop aims to help you put into practise and improve both your general and professional English skills. You will collaborate in a group to achieve a shared goal, such as a sales pitch, a podcast or documentary, a TED-like presentation, or a short performance or film. As you work together, you will discover gaps in your English vocabulary and grammar which your teacher will help you fill, ensuring that the next time you need to communicate an idea, you will have the language to do so.

Professional Communication | 1.45-3.45pm

In Professional Communication, improve your English for work. Your teacher, a business English specialist, will train you in appropriate language use for a range of professional contexts, such as meetings, negotiations, conflict resolution, phoning, emailing, marketing, HR and management. As professional English communication involves using the appropriate ‘style’ (i.e. formal vs. informal), you will practise different approaches to communicating with clients, colleagues and senior staff. You will learn through business English materials, practical activities, simulations and assignments.

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 your 360° experience even after class, as Venture English is at Summerhall, Edinburgh’s most adventurous arts, events and education venue!
