English Classes

Destiny Angels’ Community English Classes provide language support, social opportunities and friendship for Edinburgh’s international community. Our focus is on sharing culture and building communication skills, confidence and relationships.

Each class is very informal, with plenty of opportunity for speaking and listening practice, and usually includes a cultural presentation—often with food! Lessons are taught by qualified TEFL-trained teachers, with support from volunteers helping with conversation practice.

We meet on a Monday evening at our Destiny Granton location, 7.30-9pm. Check the Coming Up section of our website for details of term dates and find out what we’ve been up to on our Facebook page. Classes are free, although there is a suggested donation of £1 per session to help cover costs.

With students and volunteers from all over the world, we love to meet new people and celebrate the diversity of Edinburgh. Please come along and join our family! All language abilities welcome.

I absolutely love the Destiny English Classes!
All the teachers are extremely friendly and helpful. There is a lovely family atmosphere. I am really happy that I can be in this place every Monday and improve my English.

We also offer live Polish interpreting at our Granton Sunday morning service, with plans to introduce other languages across our Destiny locations. Please get in touch if you can help with interpreting and translating in any language, or if there is specific language support you would benefit from.
