I’ve attended two Confluence Language Plus Courses – they are useful for anyone who wants both to improve dramatically his English language in a short period of time and to have a general overview of Scotland.  In general mornings are devoted to customized courses at the Confluence’s premises (reading, writing, presentations, language for work and business, little chat, etc.) and in the afternoons you will visit, always accompanied by Confluence’s teachers, some of the most outstanding and beautiful landscapes, buildings and great houses of this part of Scotland.  A fantastic opportunity for improving your listening comprehension and conversation skills. People from Confluence will help you with your accommodation too if you ask. Teachers are fully skilled and really nice!

I warmly recommend you these courses: A worthwhile experience and a very good price per value!

Im letzen Jahr habe ich einem Intensivkurs bei „confluence scotland“ besucht, der auf meine Bedürfnisse individuell zugeschnitten wurde. Aufgrund dieser Möglichkeit konnte ich meine englischen Sprachenkenntnisse in sehr kurzer Zeit auffrischen und insbesondere den mündlichen Ausdruck stark verbessern.

In May 2010 Confluence Scotland organized a 5-day-programme for a group of 6th class pupils from Finland. Our programme consisted of language lessons, educational visits and visits to local schools. From the very first enquiries to the last good byes our wishes and needs were taken into consideration. The programme was planned with utmost care and it was well suited to the age and language skill level of 11-12 year old non-native speakers.  All aspects of our programme were planned to serve the Finnish School Curriculum.  The hands-on language lessons were versatile and supported rest of the programme extremely well. The pupils were able to put what they learned into practise immediately – and they did this with a great enthusiasm! We were also able to use the material from the classes in our follow-up studies after returning back to school. Our teachers were true professionals; they were very attentive to the children’s needs and able to “read” the situations and group dynamics in class.

The feedback from the pupils and the supervising parents was unanimous; the week in Edinburgh was an excellent language course that encouraged all participants to develop their language skills and provided the children with an assurance of their ability to manage in a foreign language.
