English Language Schools in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling

Senior Group English Language Programme (50+) Edinburgh

English language programmes are offered in Edinburgh for senior groups throughout the year.

Our programme is aimed at groups of adults who wish to improve their English language skills whilst also enjoying a fabulous sightseeing break, taking in the cultural attractions and scenery that Edinburgh and Scotland have to offer. The English language tuition is delivered from our premises in York Place, right in the heart of Edinburgh's historical New Town and very well served by public transport, including Edinburgh's new tram system which stops right outside of the school.

A typical week

Students on this programme enjoy a great balance between language study and the opportunity to enjoy their stay in Scotland.

The programme includes 3 hours of English tuition each morning, leaving afternoons & evenings free to make the most of your time here. Over and above the included day trip and cultural afternoon & evening activities, leaders are able to devise their own programme of excursions, tailoring the programme to their groups' unique requirements.

This means there’s really is no such thing as a "typical week".
