The benefits of learning English in Scotland

Why would you go to an English school in Scotland? What are the pros of doing so? Here we explain why Scotland is a great place to learn English.

If you are looking to take a trip for the purposes of learning English then why not come to learn English in Scotland? There are various reasons why this is a great option. The Scottish accent is surprisingly easy to understand. Many non-native speakers find it easier to grasp than thicker accents that can be encountered in other English speaking countries. Scottish people are also warm and friendly, and are an extremely hospitable nation who enjoy talking and story-telling.

Scotland is a country full of stories… rich history, myths and legends, and unique fairy tales are deeply engrained in the traditions of Scotland and an opportunity to share their stories is rarely missed by locals. Learning these stories and passing them on is a great way to understand the language – and the passion – of a country.

There are many famous Scots – past and present – associated with the world of literacy; from Robert Burns to J K Rowling, what better place to come to explore the language? Walk the streets that inspired many writers and poets, sit in the cafes, visit the bookshops and take in the breathtaking scenery.

Writing is not the only art celebrated in Scotland though, there are other traditions that celebrate song, music and dance, as well as sports such as golf, which originated in Scotland. You will easily find ways to be entertained as well as improving your English at the same time.

In order to learn a language in a country, you need to take that country into your heart, and Scotland is such a beautiful country with so much to admire.
