Randolph School of English
As many language schools merge and get larger, students can feel they are not given the personal attention they have paid for and deserve. Randolph School of English Edinburgh is a small and select Scottish summer college with no more than 58 students and an average of 40. We believe that responding to the needs of students from the beginning to the end of a course is the key to a happy and contented customer.
Valerie Reynolds, the school's Scottish director, has over twenty years experience as an English teacher and school manager in the UK and other parts of the world. In addition, Ms Reynolds has fifteen years teacher training experience. She, therefore, fully appreciates the challenges of language learning and the importance of quality teaching. The director meets students every day to discuss problems and answer questions. The school has fully-qualified and enthusiastic teachers who are happy to socialise and take an interest in their students' welfare.
We can guarantee a warm Scottish welcome
The Language Institute Edinburgh
In the early 1960's we moved to Africa to pursue a career in English teaching and English teacher training. We spent about 15 years teaching in Zambia, Zimbabwe and Nigeria.
After a couple of years teaching technical English in Libya we then moved to Brunei where we spent 8 years teaching in Chinese schools and government colleges.
In 1990 we opened TLI English School in Pontevedra in Spain and also started to do Trinity College London Teacher Training (TEFL) courses.
5 years ago we opened TLI English school here in Edinburgh after deciding to come home after many years teaching abroad.
We are a family run school and much of our teaching is done by our experienced family team. This makes us very motivated and determined to give our students what they need. In total, our tutors have more than 80 years experience between them.
The TEFL Academy: Edinburgh Centre
The TEFL Academy is the UK's leading TEFL course provider. Our courses are designed to effectively teach our students the fundamental skills to enable them to be successful at teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL).
There are many TEFL course providers operating in the UK. With so much choice, and with such a vast amount of conflicting information available on the internet, it can be hard for prospective TEFL course students to make the right choice. The TEFL Academy's combined 120 hour TEFL course aims to provide students with accurate information, skills and training to ensure they leave the academy with a sound understanding of teaching English, as well as a clearer picture of the TEFL industry as a whole.
The TEFL Academy specialises in TEFL courses and nothing else. TEFL is not only in our name, but it is also the backbone of our academy. All of our trainers are experienced EFL professionals. They have all qualified as TEFL teachers themselves, gained years of actual teaching experience and are now passing on their working knowledge to our TEFL course students.
Accreditation is a major factor that should be considered when choosing a TEFL course. There are many organisations, based both in the UK and abroad, that accredit TEFL courses. When choosing a course you should remember that potential employers are likely to be based outside the UK. This means that accreditation organisations based in the UK may not be recognised by employers abroad. This is why The TEFL Academy is fully accredited by the World TEFL Accrediting Commission (WTEFLAC). The WTEFLAC is an international body that accredits and regulates TEFL courses. In addition we are accredited by TQUK, an Ofqual regulated awarding body.
Experience English: Edinburgh Centre
Together we are a collection of four high quality and long-standing English language schools located in great cities across the UK: Hampstead School of English (London), Manchester Academy of English, English Language Centre York, and Edinburgh Language Centre.
Our philosophy is simple:
We offer a style of language learning that extends far beyond the classroom and immerses you in the history, culture and life of your destination.
We want you to have a fully immersive and unforgettable experience, and to help make this happen we base everything we do on three key principles that we believe will make your time with us the best it can be:
- Immersive Activities: So you can make the most of your destination, our staff and teachers run exciting social activities that provide the perfect opportunity to become more fluent in the English language, to discover the best of your city, and to create new friendships.
- Innovative Learning: We know that if you want to study English well, the journey of learning is as important as the final result. That’s why our teams are always creating innovative, interesting and challenging ways to help you remember what you’ve learnt.
- Authentic Locations: We think that the only way you can truly learn a language is to immerse yourself in the culture of the location you are in. Our schools and cities offer exactly this: a genuine taste of the place and its people.
