At inlingua you learn to communicate in your target language in the same way as you learned your mother tongue.

About Location

The language centre is based in a Georgian building in Edinburgh’s busy West End which just a minute’s walk from Princes Street – the city’s main shopping area and the best place to see iconic views of Edinburgh castle.

Teaching Method

It’s an intensive, world-renowned method where trainers teach in your target language, using pictures and role-plays rather than direct translations. They encourage you to participate actively in the classroom, helping you to pick up your new language as quickly as possible. From day one, the trainer’s aim is to encourage you to speak as much as possible whilst integrating skills in reading, writing and listening into the lesson. inlingua runs classes in small groups with a maximum of 10 students (average 5) to allow students to practice their spoken English as much as possible. There are no mixed-level groups!
