Blue Noun’s Immersion English Programme for creative professionals gets you chatting with professional artists, craftspeople and industry experts. 

Immersive English experiences are Blue Noun’s strength and our beautiful region of Strathearn is our living classroom.

Our region is uniquely filled with small producers of agri-based industries including foods, textiles, animals and crops.

 “Strathearn is Scotland’s Larder”  

 

Strathearn’s landscape attracts outdoor sports and recreation businesses and artists, crafters, writers and other creatives who chose to live here as a base but sell/publish their work globally.

Out with the traditional High Street lies a wealth of innovative and excellent micro-businesses creating their own niche in global markets. 

At Blue Noun, our concept is to introduce all our students to makers in informal, professional settings, where our students practice professional English skills such as presentations, listening comprehension, asking and answering questions about their own profession and interests.

All the makers we work with are financially rewarded for their time – but they also keen to benefit from the multi-cultural exchange our language learners bring. 

In addition, our maker partners are invited to socialise with us and take part in workshops and events.  We really do offer an English Language Course for Creatives that gives professional, practical language experience.
