Summer holidays in Scotland for children

Scottish language schools and language camps have an international status and offer their students excellent learning conditions:

  • balanced curriculum
  • qualified teaching staff
  • a rich extracurricular program that will not allow children and youth to get bored in their free time 

Each educational institution in Scotland seeks to create a friendly and home-like atmosphere, so that students from other countries feel comfortable, despite the fact that they are away from home. One of the main tasks of the school staff is the safety and good mood of the students, so the holidays, camps for children in Scotland do everything possible to create comfortable conditions.

Holidays in Scotland: admission conditions and daily routine

Many parents are afraid to send their children on vacation to Scotland because of the academic load in them. Holidays are designed for international young people, and summer centers do not forget about it. Of course, holidays in Scotland involve learning English, but, as a rule, no more than 3 hours a day. There is a five-day period, that is, on weekends, students improve their English not in an academic, but in a leisure environment (during excursions, walks, entertainment events).

 

From Monday to Friday, schoolchildren attend lessons — but not ordinary, but communicative, non-standard format:

  • Classes are held in the form of role-playing games;
  • Quizzes;
  • Discussions, etc.

 

Foreign children get the opportunity to relax, and this, in turn, contributes to the assimilation of knowledge and the effectiveness of the development of language skills.

 

In addition, students on vacation in Scotland are offered various electives — the total load for older teenagers is no more than 4-6 academic hours a day, and there is plenty of time for leisure.

The daily routine is formed depending on the chosen curriculum and on average looks something like this:

8.30

Breakfast

9.00 - 12.00

English lessons

12.00 - 13.00

Dinner

13.00 - 18.00

Activities, sections, excursions / additional options

18.00 - 19.00

dinner

From 20.00

Evening activities

22.30

Bed time 

Each language lesson lasts 40 minutes. In the standard course, the week of classes includes 15-20 academic hours, that are distributed over five days - from Monday to Friday. After lunch, students can devote time to various activities (canoeing courses, mountaineering and so on), hobbies and classes in various sections organized by the school.

It is worth noting that children, schoolchildren and teenagers can go to a language camp in Scotland with any language level, since all students are divided into groups of 10-12 people, depending on the starting level. Starting knowledge is determined using special testing, which all students pass on the day of arrival. The classes are held in the form of seminars and workshops, where the guys gain new experience in some kind of life situations in real communication.

Students are given both individual and group assignments, the guys prepare projects together and protect them - and this is far from all. The educational process involves the interactive interaction of students with the teacher or between themselves. All this helps each of the students to actively express themselves in the classroom, develop communication skills, and practice speaking.

A compulsory part of the extracurricular program in Scotland remains excursions - to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Invereri, in the vicinity of the famous Loch Lomond and Loch Long lakes, as well as other cultural and historical places - there are plenty of such places in Scotland.

In the evenings, children are expected to participate in various social events of an entertaining nature: the game "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire", talent shows, discos, movie watching and much more.

All types of informal communication that offer holidays, camps for children in Scotland also help foreign students learn English, practice the knowledge gained in the lessons. Language practice is one of the main components of successful study abroad.

Tuition fees for language courses in Scotland

To study in Scotland at a language center or language school, foreign students will require from 800 to 2200 pounds for one week. The exact price will be formed on the basis of a particular educational institution, but we can list its components:

  • curriculum
  • duration
  • format of accommodation and meals (full-time study or boarding)
  • extracurricular program
  • additional options offered by the educational institution.

As for accommodation, usually foreign students are offered to stay in the residence of a school in Scotland, or they select a host local family. Both options have their advantages, so here it is better to focus on the preferences of the student himself. Meals in international schools are also monitored very carefully: the menu includes balanced dishes that are made specifically for children and adolescents. Meals at least three times a day with several snacks. School chefs can also arrange vegetarian menus or diet meals for health reasons upon prior request.

Holidays in Scotland in summer: for local and foreign student

Interesting vacations are those about which the student talks excitedly. Emotions and impressions are the main thing that distinguishes a high–quality children's holiday from a mediocre one, and the specialists of educational institutions understand this perfectly, carefully think over the leisure program for their foreign pupils. Holidays in Scotland will be remembered by your child for a long time and will give a lot of amazing emotions!

 

Foreign children can get acquainted with the outstanding sights of c such as Stonehenge, Cambridge and Oxford universities, medieval castles, visit nature parks and amusement parks, go hiking on horseback. There is also no need to get bored on the territory — barbecue-paty, themed parties, discos, sports events and much more are organized here.

Educational groups at the best holiday camps in Scotland: classification

  • 3, 4, 5 , 6, 7 years: for the most part, these are full-time courses, when the child is taken away by a parent or official guardian and he also picks up after lessons / events. For such a category, it is also possible to study at the child + parent program, when parents and children study at the same school in different courses;
  • 8, 9, 10, 11 years — the second age category, which offers both day and children's programs with boarding houses on the territory of schools. Children have the opportunity to live together in rooms, communicating with peers from different countries. In this category, most foreign children and schoolchildren get their first experience of traveling abroad.
  • 12, 13, 14 years old — children at a slightly more mature age, according to statistics, have good language skills and go on vacation to England not for the first time. Some schools accept more complex programs with different educational subjects. There is both boarding and full-time training. It is more popular to live on school grounds in a residence or campus.
  • 15, 16, 17, 18 years old — teenagers who can go on their own. Often the people go with friends, who, by the way, are often met right there at an earlier age. Usually, more unusual educational programs are considered, with an academic bias, subjects, preparation for GCSE, A-level, IB, and university in various specialties.
