"It was a long stay and a great adventure": English teacher Nelli Kalashnik about Edinburgh School of English

My dream has come true! Once I had the courage to go to Edinburgh it became a reality! It is a welcoming city with lots to see and do! I spent the whole month living with a Scottish family, going sightseeing, socializing with the native speakers and my new friends that I met doing the program of a two week course on Active Methodology for teachers.

It was in August, so I had a great opportunity to enjoy the atmosphere of Edinburgh International Festival, as well as Edinburgh Fringe festival, both take place every August. I visited the world famous Military Tattoo performance and Highland Games which are more than worth seeing.

There is a lot to see and learn in the museums and galleries, which come in great number and free of charge, so every day was full of new impressions. The Parliament of Scotland is open for visitors during the festival time and is also free.

The school work is well organized and provides a great variety of different programs, so you feel spoilt for choice. You have to expect everything presented in the advertising videos and written in theleaflets in real life. The school management staff is very efficient and flexible to meet the requirements and the needs of the students. Will Rennie, Academic manager, is absolutely inspiring. The way Will organizes the start of the day with wonderfully shaped warming-ups doesn’t only motivate students to do their best at the lessons but also is an example for us the teachers to follow.

The two students who joined me anddid the Octorial programare over the moon with the lessons and the result.

It was a long stay and a great adventure! I express particular gratitude to English For Life team for finding an appropriate school and course and helping me organize this trip.

There is still one wish left… the wish to be able to afford it more than once.)

But… where there is a will, there is a way!
