Learn English on our Immersion Holiday in Scotland
Get Immersed in Art and Culture & Express Yourself in English
Prices start at £1,500 per week – including activities – excluding accommodation.
Why Do I Need an English Language Holiday?
It’s necessary for a creative career to be able to express yourself freely and completely. You need to share excitement about new ideas, vocalise problems, offer help – and take advantage of the beautiful, spontaneous collaborations that happen all the time across different networks of expertise.
Freedom of expression is your fuel, your fire: the heart and soul of your work.
Except your professional field is a global one – and these conversations are happening in English.
You’re caught on the wrong foot.
Conversations don’t flow. Requests and opinions are reduced or too clumsy. Ideas falter. Sparks fail to ignite.
Language learning has frustrations for all learners, but this lack of words is particularly bitter for creative thinkers: thoughts and ideas are the most difficult things to express – even in a first language, but in your profession, that’s exactly what you need your English skills to do.
You can not be a change-maker without your voice.
Your career needs you to be comfortable expressing yourself in English. Until you are, you will continually miss opportunities to speak and to shine.
Our solution is to have some fun with English.
Have a holiday!
Blue Noun’s methodology builds your expressive identity in English – not through translating everything you already want to say, but by trying activities that have you thinking, making, laughing and creating in English.
Our English language holidays are enjoyable – and they forge a deep, lasting identity with the English language.
Relax, explore. Get completely immersed in a new cultural landscape and you will find your words (don’t translate them, grow them), enjoy using new expressions and experiment with old ones in the safest, friendliest of places.
Like a traditional language school, we coach your English, expertly. Unlike a traditional language school, we invite friends and partners to help. They too share stories and information – and keep conversations fresh and interesting.
Help, I’m Shy!
Yes, our English is better than yours, but we want to hear what you have to say and we can help you say it. There’s no smug hierarchy, only new friends.
Whatever your passion and profession, our English language holidays show you Perthshire in ways designed to get you using the English language skills you seek.
- Sip whisky while discovering how our local distillery propelled itself into a top luxury brand.
- Tour studios and learn first-hand why so many artists chose to live in Perthshire.
- Kayak through Perth and see city life from the viewpoint of its river wildlife.
You could call it bespoke.
You could say we make it up as we go along.
Actually, it’s a mix of both. Your needs and interests combine with our reactive language teaching expertise.
Let us share our excitement for culture – joy in great art, music and architecture. In turn, tell us about the things you love, the work you do – your processes, your dreams, changes in your field, the people you have worked with, what’s on your desk, the tools you need to use, the support you get, a book that’s changed your life, a job you didn’t get, a trip you’d love to make – and see, see how naturally you can express yourself in English.
And when the next international collaboration opportunity suddenly pops up – you’ll know just what to say.
Maximum 4 English learners per week.
