Gone are the days when Edinburgh's nightlife was quite boring and locals had to go to Glasgow for a good night. Edinburgh is in full swing and its nightlife is excellent thanks to locals and the many tourists who visit the city every year. There isn´t an exclusive party area, but several different ones: George Street in the New Town, High Street in the Old City, the university and the Grassmarket. Broughton Street tends to attract a "motley" clientele, while Leith is one of the most popular areas.
The bars in the city range from traditional taverns with hundreds of years of history behind them, to bars with a modern design. Once the bars close, people often go to the clubs that offer a variety of music to suit all tastes. There are many places that offer live music and big concerts are usually held at Murrayfield Stadium.
The season in which Edinburgh has the largest number of visitors is the summer (July-September) and particularly in August, during the famous Edinburgh International Festival which is when the city stirs great cultural activity. At the same time, it also hosts the Fringe Festival (alternative festival), the Military Tattoo (military parade), the Jazz Festival and the Film Festival.
In Edinburgh there are 4 large, very prestigious universities, where thousands of international students come each year. The oldest, the University of Edinburgh, dates back to 1583.
It is ideal for people that want to combine learning the language with discovering the beautiful city of Edinburgh.
The school organises a varied plan of activities in the afternoons and evenings. Participating in activities is not mandatory, however it is a perfect way to see other cities, meet new friends and have fun.
On Tuesday nights there is a party with the school team in one of the pubs in town. It is a perfect way to practice your English in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. During the Fringe Festival, the school becomes one of the venues of the Festival with concerts and theatre performances.
It is ideal for students who want to immerse themselves in a different culture. By sharing meals with your hosts every day and relaxing with the family, you can practice your language in natural situations. Usually, there are no more than 3 students in a family and there is always mix of nationalities. Families often live in residential areas of the city, not in the center, so you will need to take public transport to get to the school.

Edimburgo es increíble y es una ciudad a la que hay que ir. también alquilamos un coche los fines de semana y hemos quedado encantados con Escocia.
Compartir apartamento fuera de una residencia o una familia está muy bien. Las actividades de la escuela, su método de trabajo y los profesores muy buenos.
El viaje en general ha sido muy satisfactorio, la ciudad, la residencia, la escuela etc. Me parece muy atractivo el hecho de que en la escuela se ofrezca desayuno "gratuito" es una buena manera de que los estudiantes nos conozcamos entre nosotros.
Me ha gencantado Edimburgo
Edimburgo es una ciudad con una estupenda oferta cultural por los festivales de verano, con multitud de eventos gratuitos.
