We visit a variety of places in and around Edinburgh so you can experience the culture and natural beauty of Scotland.
All our English courses include one afternoon excursion per week, usually on a Wednesday afternoon. These excursions are at no extra cost and they are an extra opportunity for you to practise your English listening and speaking skills and get to know the other students in the school. We visit a variety of places in Edinburgh city or within an hour’s drive of Edinburgh so you can experience the culture and natural beauty of Scotland. Popular excursions include castles, historical houses and palaces, villages, a whisky distillery, monuments and museums.
Scotland is a small and welcoming English-speaking country. It has beautiful scenery and a long and colourful history of its own, in addition to a distinctive culture and traditions. Scottish people are known all over the world for their warmth and hospitality. It is easy for you to join an organised tour at the weekends and visit the Highlands, the West Coast, the Borders or the famous Isle of Skye. After your English course in Edinburgh you could stay on in Scotland for a few days or weeks and use your new English skills to explore more of our lovely country.
As well as providing a further language learning opportunity, our weekly excursions allow students to experience the unique culture and natural beauty of Scotland.
