You have decided to go to Scotland to learn English, but you don't know which city to go to? Scotland's capital is a marvel for wards and a great place to perfect the language of Shakespeare. Find out everything there is to know about the capital to make you want to come to Edinburgh for a language trip!
After London, Edinburgh is the most visited city in the United Kingdom. The city of Edinburgh has a population of over 490,000, but when tourists flock to major events, parties and festivals, its population is more than doubled!
This capital city built on volcanic hills is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is bordered by the North Sea. The city is called Edinburgh in British English.
The city of Edinburgh is multifaceted, skillfully blending two completely different styles with its medieval Old Town and Georgian New Town.
Whether it's your first destination for your language stay in Scotland or not, it's a city full of charm, which you should visit to discover the Scottish culture!
After your English language course in Edinburgh, you will have the opportunity to visit some great places and take part in some enriching activities. This is your chance to perfect your English lessons, practice the language and listen to your Edinburgh speakers to cultivate your English accent.
Some of the city's favourite activities include :
Other activities and unusual places can be visited such as the Scottish Parliament or the incredible Princes Street Gardens. Since you will not have classes at your English school during weekends, feel free to get away from the city and visit Loch Ness or the Highlands!
Edinburgh is pided into several districts, so you can choose to study English courses in the district that suits you best. Here's a quick look at some areas of the city that our students have chosen to study in during their time in Edinburgh.
Leith, the harbour district, is out of the centre of town. It's not the prettiest part of Edinburgh, but it's one of the cheapest. So it will satisfy students who do not have a large budget. The area is full of restaurants and pubs of all kinds.
It is the oldest district of Edinburgh and also the historic nerve centre of the city. The majority of historic places and sites are located here. The area is not lacking in charm, but is crowded with tourists. Prices can quickly skyrocket in this very popular and dynamic area.
The singular architecture of this chic Georgian-style district is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A multitude of pubs and luxury boutiques are proudly enthroned there. Plan a budget for your stay, as hotel or Airbnb room rates are quite high.
This restful neighbourhood is located on the beach. There is a peaceful and serene village life. It is a preferred area for students who wish to study English courses in the evenings after school in complete serenity and without the noise of the bustling festive life of the city centre.
This area is ideal if you hesitate between a very quiet area like Portobello and a more dynamic and touristic area like Old Town. The cobbled streets and authentic buildings will delight architecture and history buffs. Room rates in this area are affordable and the city centre is only a short walk away.
You can fly or take the train to Edinburgh for your English language course. However, flying is still the cheapest, fastest and most direct way to get to Edinburgh. If you book your ticket in advance, you can expect to pay around 60 euros for a return flight from Paris with a low-cost airline.
For your airport/city centre transfer, you can choose a taxi, tram or bus. The bus is the cheapest way to get to Edinburgh city centre from the airport.
If you can, walk to the city centre. This will allow you to explore every corner of the capital and discover unusual places. However, if you want to get from one place to another more quickly, trams and buses are affordable and connect most parts of the city.
Taxis are also present in the city and are very funny visually. Don't hesitate to book at least one taxi trip during your language study stay in Edinburgh to make sure you have a great experience!
