You’ve arrived in Edinburgh, settled into your accommodation and had a little time left over to look around the city. So what happens next?

When you arrive at our language centre you will be greeted by our lovely team who will help you to navigate the students lounge, refreshments area and notice board. Here, you can also pick up a UK SIM card with £5 credit already on it! Then, if you have not had an assessment yet, one of our teachers will take you for a quick chat to determine your level and decide which group would be best for you.

After the assessment, you will be taken to your lesson to meet your fellow classmates and start improving your English! Next comes the break which gives you the chance to meet students from different classes while enjoying a coffee or your favourite flavour of tea.

Finally, once the lessons and lunch break have ended, one of our teachers will take you on a walking tour of Edinburgh to help you get your bearings and discover the city through a local’s eyes. It’s a great chance to get to know your surroundings and your fellow students. Here are a few snapshots from our walking tour this week:
