In depth: Our English Courses in Edinburgh

1:1 and Group English Courses in Edinburgh

At SIMON & SIMON we offer courses either on a 1:1 or group basis. Most of our students benefit more from the 1:1 lessons as these allow us to tailor the course to them alone. However, there are definite financial and conversational benefits to be gained from group lessons. We do, however, limit groups to no more than 6 members.

English Course Management

We will assign one of our very capable, multi-lingual Account Managers to supervise your course. Your account Manager will be responsible for sending you the profile on your intended tutor, as well as sending you your course plan and course materials. Your progress reports, detailing your progress after every 30 to40 hours of training, will also be issued by your highly experienced Account Manager.

About English

English arose from the medieval kingdom of Northumbria, having roots in the West Germanic languages brought over with the 5th century Anglo-Saxon settlers. It underwent several changes throughout the years before becoming the language we speak today. Its popularity is largely owed to the spread of modern politics, culture, military practices, and science under the expanding British Empire in the 18th century, and the influence of the United States in the 20th century. Thanks to these English-speaking societies, English now only follows Mandarin Chinese and Spanish in terms of native global use.

About Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland, the second largest city in Scotland and the seventh-most populous in the United Kingdom. The City of Edinburgh Council is one of Scotland’s 32 local government council areas. The council area includes urban Edinburgh and a 30-square-mile (78 km2) rural area. Located in the south-east of Scotland, Edinburgh lies on the east coast of the Central Belt, along the Firth of Forth, near the North Sea. Owing to its spectacular, rugged setting and vast collection of Medieval and Georgian architecture, including numerous stone tenements, it is often considered one of the most picturesque cities in Europe.

Edinburgh is the seat of the Scottish Parliament. The city was one of the major centres of the Enlightenment, led by the University of Edinburgh, earning it the nickname Athens of the North. The Old Town and New Town districts of Edinburgh were listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. There are over 4,500 listed buildings within the city. In May 2010, it had a total of 40 conservation areas covering 23% of the building stock and 23% of the population, the highest such ratios of any major city in the UK. In the 2009 mid-year population estimates, Edinburgh had a total resident population of 477,660. Edinburgh is well-known for the annual Edinburgh Festival, a collection of official and independent festivals held annually over about four weeks from early August.
