Venture English Language School

Hi, I’m Lorna, the Founder and Director of Venture English – welcome! Having taught English all over the world since 2001, I started Venture English in Edinburgh to give international adults the best opportunity to learn and improve English language skills for professional and personal development.

We have welcomed company managers and teams from across Europe, international employees and university students resident in Edinburgh, and travellers here to ‘brush up’ their English skills or enjoy an English language holiday while experiencing Scotland’s culture, character and landscape.

At Venture English, we use a holistic teaching approach that combines formal classroom learning with experiential ‘real-life’ learning. That means you study English through a blend of projects, simulations, discussions, activities and language training. We believe in adventurous learning – learning English through doing – and so your classes are always dynamic and interactive!

One of the best things about Venture English is that we are small. We believe in quality, not quantity, and so we only ever have one or two classes at the same time, and a maximum of 6 students per class. That way, we can be sure to give you the personalised teaching that you need, and an authentic local Edinburgh experience!
