Reasons to study Spanish at SALT

  • Individual attention in small classes

    We believe in a very personal and high quality education and small groups are essential for it. SALT's comfortable and relaxed environment allows you to feel more confident and your tutor can give you a more support and individual treatment.
  • Classes for all abilities

    From absolute beginners to highly proficient students, SALT's courses offer something for everyone whatever your Spanish ability. We also offer summer courses that focus on speaking and Spanish and Hispanic culture.
  • Private classes and tutoring

    Your process may be faster than in a group and you will gain confidence in a closer environment. Lessons are designed around each individual student’s interests and needs and can be taken at your home or office, or at our academy at Castle Terrace.

They say...

  • Fun classes with wonderful teachers. My Spanish is improving and I've made some great new pals. I attended some other Spanish classes in Edinburgh and SALT is better, cheaper AND has smaller classes.

    Jen M,
  • I have just finished the Beginner 1 course. Although it only lasted a month, I think that the lessons were intensive enough that you saw real improvement. Lots of fun and nothing like school, either!

    Melissa S,
  • Already after the DELE C1 exam. Jorge, thank you very much for excelent preparatory course!

    Marta M,
  • One of the best language schools/classes I have ever attended (and I have been attending language classes of various types for over 20 years). The classes are tremendous fun and contribute to the overall educational experience. I cannot recommend SALT highly enough!

    Renata R,
  • I studied Spanish with SALT for 3 years from a beginner level. The classes were always challenging enough that I was continually learning but fun enough that it never seemed like work. I would highly recommend SALT to anyone thinking of learning Spanish. 

    Charlotte T,
  • Definitely the best Spanish courses in Scotland - friendly environment, comprehensible explanation of grammar and vocabulary, interesting topics and many opportunities to practice both speaking and writing, and ALWAYS FUN! :)

    Jana L,
  • I was looking for a fun and friendly place for Spanish lessons in Edinburgh. Eduardo and Jorge are great guys and I am enjoying learning with them. I would highly recommend this Spanish academy in Edinburgh if you're thinking of taking up the language or improving your existing knowledge.
    Simon L,
  • I had private Spanish tuition classes with SALT for a year and was able to fit the classes around my busy final year at University. Thanks to SALT I passed all my exams, received a distinction in the oral and I am now currently working in Spain!
    Alexandra R,
  • I have been going there for 5 terms and love it! The SALT team are so enthusiastic and very good teachers. I'm looking forward to next term. Anyone looking for Spanish lessons in Edinburgh should try this Spanish school.
    Christine M,
  • We are very satisfied with SALT's translation service. They are professional, precise, efficient, punctual and  competitively priced. Very recommendable.
    Isabel Alba, Marketing & Communication Manager, Grupo Arelance (Spain)
  • Excellent teachers, friendly environment and learning is tailored to your level and expectations... I would highly to recommend it!
    Sheila B,
  • The classes are small and friendly, and the Spanish teachers are excellent. The course structure and content are very well-prepared and the materials and other resources always stimulating. In my view, Spanish courses at SALT are heads above anything else on offer in Edinburgh.
