We organise weekly activities: walking tours with a professional guide, museums with a teacher, Scottish dancing nights, traditional pub nights and much more.

Why in winter?
Christmas in Edinburgh is one of the highlights of the winter season, featuring a packed calendar of events, attractions and festive markets. The celebrations continue as Edinburgh’s Hogmanay shows the world how to party over three days with spectacular entertainment, incredible bands and amazing crowds from every corner of the globe.
What about the weather?
Generally speaking, the weather in Edinburgh is at its coldest in January and February, with the minimum mean temperature averaging roughly 1.5°C. It can be gusty at times and we do occasionally get snow which makes the city look even more magical – so have your camera at the ready!
During the winter months in Edinburgh, you will have not only the possibility to experience seasonal events but also the opportunity to re-discover the city from a new point of view. From the Christmas market to New Year’s day, Edinburgh has so many different things to do, you will surely find something you love…
Featuring exciting courses and new activities the new brochure 2019 will introduce you to YOUR language school. This brochure will also provide information about our school, our social programme, our packages and new prices. It is designed to assist in your application. The brochure is not just a detailed list of our service range, but also an insight into our school and why inlingua Edinburgh is the best option in Edinburgh to learn a new language. Your success is as important to us as it is to you.
Speaking a second language each day really can keep the doctor away! Study after study demonstrated the cognitive benefits of learning another language, no matter how old you are. Memory improvement, longer attention span, and a reduced risk of age-related cognitive decline are just a few of the known positive effects of speaking two or more languages.
Family and friends
If your partner, in-laws, relatives or friends speak a different language, learning that language will help you to communicate with them. It can also give you a better understanding of their culture and way of thinking.
Job and Work Opportunities
Learning a second language opens up a ton of career opportunities. The world is changing fast. More companies than ever are doing business in several – often dozens of – countries around the world, but they can’t do it without hiring globally-minded people who can speak at least one foreign language. Ever wanted to be like those people you see in the airport travelling to foreign countries “on business” all the time? That can be you. Edinburgh is well known to be very international. Even in small, local companies, chances are that the ability to speak a second language will set you apart from other applicants.
Become More Interesting and Meet Interesting People
If your first language is English, the second most common language in the world, and yet you’ve made the effort to learn another language rather than expecting the world to accommodate you. People will approach you and will want to talk to you. They’ll want to know what motivated you to learn another language.
Become a Better Learner
Every time you will learn a new language, you will find it easier than the one before. The reasoning is simple: with every new language you’ll study, you will figure out ways to learn more efficiently. In other words, you will develop language hacks.
Discover You Can Do It!
We’ve heard pretty much every excuse that people give for failing to learn a second language. Too old, not enough time, wrong genes. None of them hold water. Whatever doubts you have, you really can learn another language. It’s never too late, you are never too old. With only a lesson per week and 12 weeks, you could even hold your first conversation!
