Summer SChool Edinburgh: don’t just learn English, EXPERIENSSCE it!

Summer SChool Edinburgh at SSC is an exSSCiting experienSSCe!

On the  SSC Summer SChool Edinburgh, you don’t just learn by in-class study. You experience the language first-hand, like a native-speaker.

On the Summer SChool Edinburgh you learn by a project and activity-based approach. When you are in an English-speaking country, it makes sense to make use of the English language environment that surrounds you.  The project activities take you outside the classroom to places in and around Edinburgh.  This gives you the opportunity to use the language you learn in class as you speak to people in order to carry out your project work.

On the SSC Summer SChool Edinburgh you use in-class time as preparation for, and also feedback on, integrated project activities. These activities take you on study tours to Edinburgh’s and Scotland’s main historical and cultural sites.  As you study, for example, you can visit Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, Loch Ness, and many more exSSCiting places.

On your  study tours, you can choose to have a native-speaker ‘Study Guide’.  The study guide helps you with your project work and makes sure that you use  English at all times.
