Project and Activity-based learning

SSC believes that learning  a language takes place, not just by in-class study, but by experiencing the language first-hand.  This is the reasoning behind the SSC’s project and activity-based approach.

On the SSC Summer School, you use in-class time as preparation for, and also feedback on, integrated project activities that take you on study tours to Edinburgh’s main historical and cultural sites.

On your  study tours, you can opt to have a highly proficient English language ‘study guide’ whose job it is to help you with your project work and make sure that use  English at all times.

You can also opt to go on integrated study tours to the Highlands, including to Loch Ness and to Glenfinnan, where you can ride on the famous “Harry Potter” steam train.

In August, the Edinburgh Festival makes Edinburgh THE place to be, and SSC runs a special ‘Edinburgh Festival’ course that allows you to experience all the fun and excitement of the Festival first-hand, as a participant!  Yes! – If you can dance, sing, act, play a musical instrument, or tell a joke, you can perform in street performances and at SSC to a live audience as part of the the Edinburgh Festival Fringe!
