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.
