Description

It is one of the most culturally exciting and beautiful cities in the world, with miles of unspoilt countryside and picturesque coastline, Edinburgh offers an irresistible blend of history, natural beauty and adventure.

The Social and Activity Programme is a very important part of the CES experience and the school tries to make sure that has something for everybody. CES really does believe it is important that you also learn about the culture and people you are living with while improving your English.

About Location

From the atmospheric cobbled streets of the Old Town to the beautiful Georgian avenues of the New Town, Edinburgh is a city of contrasts combining shopping, historic attractions, gardens and plenty of restaurants and cafes. Edinburgh has an international airport and great bus and rail links.

The school is located just minutes' walk from Princes Street, the city's main thoroughfare with its remarkable view of the castle. Here there is a wide range of shops, department stores, cafes and restaurants, a main post office and several major banks.

Accommodation

Homestays

  • One of the best ways to learn more about the people of Scotland is to choose homestay accommodation. Family life is informal and the people are welcoming, friendly and talkative, so you will have plenty of opportunities to practise your English.
  • All homestays are carefully selected and visited regularly to ensure consistently high standards. Homestay accommodation is half board

Social Programme

Please Note: Some social activities are free, such as movie nights/afternoons.

Other activities may incur small expenses. For example, students should buy their own drinks during the pub quizzes. Most weekend excursions are not free and are not included in course fees (unless otherwise stipulated in group packages). Such activities are pay-as-you-go.
