ELA Business' ‘Executive English’ has been designed for busy professionals who want to improve their language skills but can’t spend a whole week away from the office. There are three different courses depending on how quickly you want to learn. The course options are 4, 8 or 12 weeks in duration.
All courses are divided into three stages:
Stage 1 - An intensive weekend of individual classes with your tutor at our academy in Edinburgh
During your intensive weekend course, your teacher will do a thorough needs analysis and assessment of your language skills. You will receive feedback and recommendations on how to improve. The result of this intensive weekend will be a course of study designed to suit your individual needs. Though your tutor will make recommendations, the length of your course will be your decision.
Stage 2 - A bespoke program of self-study designed for you by your tutor
You can fit your weekly programme of study into a time that suits you and your schedule. Your tutor will be available to give feedback on written work and to set targets for the following week. We will provide all materials for your programme. Additional Skype lessons for different purposes, e.g. Pronunciation and accent reduction, Conversational Skills or Business English are available at a supplement.
Stage 3 - A final consultation, either over Skype or face to face in Edinburgh
To complete your course, your tutor will give you exit tests that we can compare with the assessments from the 1st stage. This will give us an overview of how you have progressed. Your tutor will also test the language points you targeted in stage 1 and give you advice on how to continue your independent language studies.

It's a great pleasure to be in touch with you again! I'll surely recommend ELA to friends and colleagues interested in attending general or professional English courses as your Legal English course has given me useful skills for my job. Hope to be soon in Edinburgh again!
I was already studying at ELA before starting attended the Business English course. Then, as I was happy to study there, I decided to take this course in order to improve my knowledge in this area as it is my domain of studying in France. What I found the most useful was that we were in a little group of study. Then, I found that my time there was really efficient. My favorite teaching method was when I had to talk in front of everyone. It forced me to use the skills I got previously. I enjoyed to be fully immersed in a British culture. The best advice I could give is not to be afraid to be criticized.
We cooperate with ELA-Edinburgh since 2011. We must say that the academic process is organised in a highly professional way, friendly atmosphere of the staff together with the rich historical heritage of Scotland's capital Edinburgh make the stay of our students unforgettable and joyful.
Thanks to everyone from this school. It was really nice to meet all of you. I would like you to know that I spent 2 wonderful weeks at ELA and I hope to see you again.
