English courses in Edinburgh

A magnet for authors, poets and artists, the city of Edinburgh offers a unique mix of the ancient and the modern, tradition and daring... the cultural heart of Scotland beats loudly. And during the Edinburgh Festival each August, the cultural heartbeat thumps like Scotland is about to have its first kiss! Learn English in Edinburgh with ESL and discover one of Europe’s most captivating, creative cities.

People say that the Edinburgh accent is one of the most pleasant in the English speaking world, with long, gentle vowels and a softness that is hard to dislike. Rather like the city itself, lying gently across a number of rocky hills, peering out over the North Sea. Exploring the old city centre, you will find hip, young students from the highly-respected local universities mingling with visitors from around the world, with the occasional kilt fluttering in the breeze. Any more than a breeze though and you will discover at firsthand what Scotsmen wear under their kilts (answer: nothing!).

Visit a whisky distillery, explore the spectacular Edinburgh Castle or simply get comfortable in a traditional Edinburgh pub with a whisky and a good book. Try Scottish dancing at a traditional Ceilidh or some more modern moves at the excellent nightclubs around the city centre. As a popular university city, Edinburgh attracts students from all over the world, so why not join them? Take an English course in Edinburgh and fall in love with Scotland.
