Language Courses in Aberdeen, Scotland

The city of Aberdeen is beautiful and historical, yet vibrant and cosmopolitan, and is also known as the Granite City, because of the stone used to build its public buildings.

You can walk through majestic streets and buy the latest designer clothes and authentic Scottish crafts, eat good food, and enjoy great entertainment, a cool bar and club scene, and festivals of every kind.

For instance, you might like to try dancing in a traditional ceilidh (pronounced ‘kei-lee') or visit the local Highland Games. Or drop in to the Lemon Tree - a trendy café-bar, theatre, comedy club and live music venue all in one. Aberdeen's theatres attract international pop and rock stars, as well as stars of ballet, opera, TV and the West End. Many impressionists - including Renoir, Pissarro and Monet - hang in the Aberdeen Art Gallery and there are several visiting exhibitions during the year.

Meanwhile, you are surrounded by the magnificent countryside enjoyed by the Queen and her family every summer at nearby Balmoral Castle. You can follow Scotland's famous Castle Trail and the world's only Malt Whisky Trail. The Grampians offer some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland, with mountains, lochs (lakes) and glens (valleys). If you prefer beaches, Aberdeenshire has miles of dramatic coastline, perfect for wind and kite surfing, along with many nature reserves.
