Bring pictures of the past and tell us what you are doing now. We would love to welcome pupils, tutors and administrators.

Bring your friends and family – the more the merrier! We hope to see you there!

Don’t forget to bring a plate of finger food from your home country!

Halloween 2017

We had a great day today at the School of English. Several classes discussed Halloween, our Advanced class went “guising” around different classes, and our Advanced tutor, Richard, brought in apples so that we could try apple bobbing/”dooking for apples”, as we say in Scotland.

We hope everyone had a great time! Thanks to our tutors, especially Richard, for helping create our Halloween themed lessons.

Languages around the world

Yesterday, we celebrated languages from all around the world! We celebrated our own version of last Tuesdays’s European Languages Day, making it into a day for International Languages instead!
We had some great activities, including:
1. Matching the flags to their countries
2. Writing about the country you’re from
3. Drawing a picture of yourself and writing the languages you speak
4. Identifying the language from a short sentence in that language

We also had other activities, like creating sentences from German words and trying out bilingual Arabic-English books! We had a great time, and we hope you did too.

Would you like to tell us something about your home country or language? Please tell us in the comments!


Summer School 2017

Unfortunately, Summer School has ended. We had a great time and we hope you did too! Activities ranged from discussions on “the best job in the world” and culture shock to murder mysteries and business simulators. We learned about Scottish culture and history and students shared their experiences with us – we even had an in-class performance of a beautiful traditional song from one of our Intermediate students! We hope you enjoyed Summer School as much as we did, and we hope to see many of you return alongside some new faces to our classes this term!
