Schedule
09:00-12:30 or 14:00-17:30

Schedule may vary depending on student’s level and time of year.
On the first day, students take an evaluation test that will allow them to join the class that fits their level. During class, all the basics of the English language will be covered – grammar, vocabulary, oral and written expression and understanding – focusing on the practical implementation of the language. In a context that puts interaction forward, the learners are encouraged to speak freely; they benefit from teaching methods that are adapted to their age and needs, thus making fast progress easier, and they can practise the language through different creative activities. At the end of the course, they receive a certificate attesting to the level of English that they have reached.

Det var jätteroligt! Jag ville inte åka hem. Jag har träffat jättemånga nya vänner och blivit mycket säkrare på min engelska. Det enda negativa jag kan tänka på är maten. Den var riktigt dålig men vi överlevde ändå. Och juste, en till negativ sak är att jag saknar det så mycket att det blir jobbigt. Jag önskar att jag kunde ha stannat längre. Detta var en riktigt rolig upplevelse! Skolan var jättecool. Det var som ett växthus och det fanns en pool som vi fick bada i, vilket var tur eftersom klassrummen var aaaalldeles för varma. Men det positiva väger ändå upp det negativa hur lätt som helst. Undervisningen var bra. Halva tiden hade vi teori och andra halvan hade vi projekttid. Min favorit var nog teorin eftersom vi hade en väldigt bra lärare då. Båda lärarna var väldigt bra men teoriläraren var bäst. Jag brukar inte gilla att ha lektioner så mycket men lektionerna på resan var faktiskt roliga. Jag tror att ledarna hade lite problem med att komma på aktiviteter. Vi spelade fotboll typ tre gånger. Inte för att jag har något emot fotboll men alla gillar ju inte det. Men det fanns alltid två saker att välja på så det är ju bra. Den roligare aktiviteten vi hade var "bin bag fashion show" när vi dekorerade en soppåse och så fick en modell visa upp den för alla på en cat walk. Det var riktigt roligt. Utflykterna var också roliga. Vi besökte väldigt många gamla slott och palats. Men det var faktiskt kul. Detta var en väldigt bra resa som jag aldrig kommer att glömma!

Do you think you've made progress?
« Jag har inte utökat mitt ordförråd så mycket, bara lite men jag känner att jag verkligen har blivit mycket mer säker. Jag pratade flytande innan men nu är jag säkrare och vågar verkligen använda mig av engelskan fullt ut. »
School highlights
« Skolan var väldigt fin. Det var som hälften skola och hälften växthus. Och den var så stor så det fanns mycket att utforska även om vi inte fick vara överallt. Och det fanns även en uteplats med lite gräs, några bänkar och en basketplan. Inte världens bästa skolgård men det fanns i alla fall en. »

Do you think you've made progress?
« Sì, penso di avere fatto molti progressi, passando dal livello B1 al livello C1. Avendo la possibilità di parlare molto spesso inglese, ho avuto modo di apprendere lo slang, delle espressioni che normalmente non si imparano in classe, eccetera. »
School highlights
« Ovviamente mi è piaciuto molto stare a contatto con tantissime persone di molte nazionalità diverse, mi è piaciuto l'insegnamento a scuola e la disponibilità dello staff presente a Edimburgo. »
Top tips
« Le visite a Stirling, al castello di Edimburgo e la visita della città vecchia. »

Residence
In a modern residence built for students of the University of Edinburgh that's just 15 minutes away on foot from the language centre, you'll find a pleasant environment and comfortable facilities. In a 4- to 6-bedroom flat, you'll stay in one of the single rooms with a private bathroom and share the kitchen and its vast living room with your flatmates. Breakfast is delivered every morning to the flats but the other meals are taken at the school (except in case of excursion, when you'll get a packed lunch or a restaurant voucher). Please note that sheets are supplied but you must bring towels.

Every week, your language centre offers a programme of leisure and excursions that will allow you to explore Edinburgh’s many attractions, to discover legendary places or to do sports with your new friends. Whether it be a stroll downtown, a visit to the National Museum of Scotland, a day out at the Stirling castle or a day trip to Glasgow on the weekend – you will be fascinated by the many possibilities of learning a thousand things about the place where you are staying. In the evening, enter competitions, do quizzes, sing in a karaoke, watch movies or have fun during the disco night with the other learners coming from all over the world! No doubt: this stay in Scotland will remain in your memory as a unique learning – and fun – experience!
