Advanced Speakers Festival Course Intensive (B2 + level)
Take your communication skills to the next level with our course integrated with the Edinburgh International Festival.
What you will learn
We believe that once you have a certain level of English, rather than study it you need to DO things in it. That is why our Advanced Speakers Festival Course Intensive (B2 + level) in Edinburgh explores advanced concepts of the language through class discussion, team projects and a final presentation. A selection of festival shows, interviews with the artists and cultural visits give you a new and exciting challenge for your listening skills.
Our Advanced Speakers Festival course covers 3 main areas: advanced language development, pronunciation and fluency training, and evaluation and presentation skills. During our classroom sessions, you will learn how to apply these practically, and get extensive training in your speaking, listening and pronunciation
In the afternoons we put this into practise by developing your exposure to real English through our cultural sessions and carefully selected Edinburgh Festival shows .
We curate an exciting programme of afternoon visits. These include:
- A selection of Edinburgh festival shows
- The Georgian House
- Exclusive Harry Potter tour
- Exclusive Mystery Book Sculptures tour
- Exclusive Robert Louis Stevenson and city park tour
