Immersion English Holidays in Scotland
Professional language, differently
No one wants to waste a holiday.
Don’t waste yours!
What is an immersion English holiday?
A language immersion holiday is spent in a country in which the target language is spoken. It is a ‘learning holiday’ in which participants spend part of their time working with skilled ESL teachers to correct errors, build fluency and learn new expressions.
Learners also partake in cultural and touristic activities selected to practice the target language in authentic settings.
An immersion English holiday in Scotland is a chance to discover the land, landscape, culture and people – while improving your English!

Sick of Classrooms? We are too!
Too many ‘immersion’ English experiences trap their learners in classrooms, every day bundling them into a different public tour with little English speaking or linguistic value.
- Being invited into artists’ studios to learn about their work.
- Confidently presenting your own work – and chatting to local producers about theirs?
- Going ‘behind-the-scenes’ of touristic Scotland.
Take home glorious travel stories: such as the experience of touring the River Tay‘s wildlife from a kayak – or feeding local red deer.
Blue Noun Language Hub offers bespoke alternatives to conventional immersion English Holidays.
You can enjoy unique cultural experiences thanks to our local community of maker friends, who want to share their work with you.
Getting you ‘behind the scenes’ and into extraordinary places!
