Tour Scottish Autumn with an English Language Coach

Autumn is a beautiful season in Scotland, with October the perfect month to enjoy nature outdoors in the quickly changing landscape.

And there’s no better place to be based than Perthshire.

Known as ‘big tree country‘ because of its 200,000 acres of woodland, from misty mornings to show-stopping autumn colours, Perthshire is an area overflowing with natural beauty.

No-Classroom Learning

This October, you can have a stress-free English learning holiday.

Bored of classrooms?

So are we!

With Blue Noun Language Hub, you can combine live English practice, with seeing the very best of a Scottish autumn.

You can see our full activities menu below, but highlights include a steamboat trip across Loch Katrine, a visit to the Enchanted Forest (a world famous woodland audio/visual installation),  and a red kite feed.


No Classroom English Holidays

We won’t be sitting in a classroom, instead, we will have a full week of action-filled days, combining English coaching with seeing the best of Scottish autumn.

Quality Conversations Every Day

Your landscape exploring holiday will still get you talking! Every activity is wrapped in bespoke English coaching.

A New Objective

More importantly, you can expect to smile while speaking English, even once you leave.

Of course, you’ll smile and laugh throughout my holidays too.

This happiness carries on as confidence in English, it’s yours, wherever you take it.


Language Goals

Be aware that language coaching offers a non-traditional approach to language learning, which can make it harder to measure specific results (there’s no exam for live skills).

You can expect good progress in the following skills:

English for Socialising, Presentations, understanding ‘Fast’ English (native speakers), Making Introductions, Describing Objects and Places, Expressing Opinions, and Asking Questions.

Because we only work with small groups (max 4), together we will set the specific objectives you want to achieve (including any workplace English skills) and practice them on our travels.

You don’t have to choose a classroom to improve your English.

You can choose fun and get results!

Get the Best of Autumn on an English Adventure in Scotland

Who is Our Autumn English Holiday for?

It’s for L2 English speakers who want to combine healthy, ecologically sustainable tourism with fun, non-classroom-based English practice.

The Autumn Adventure in English is for you if you would like lots of real-life opportunities to practice speaking in English (with a coach for gentle error correction). 

This immersion English holiday is for you if you feel seasons slipping past without seeing them.

Perhaps you have spent too much time in front of a computer recently, or work keeps you too busy to notice nature.

Perhaps your English is book learned – and it is time for it to come alive!

This immersion English holiday is your best opportunity to visit Scotland this autumn.

It’s excellent, bespoke English coaching at an off-season price.

Get Real!

You will fall in love with speaking English because the adventures you will have will open your heart, as we explore and talk together.

Visit Scotland this Autumn

Don’t waste fleeting golden colours in a classroom.

This year, don’t drift into winter without having glorious autumnal nature time.

You will feel refreshed and relaxed walking in Scottish woodlands with an English language coach by your side.

There’s a concept here called ‘Perthshire Time.’ It described the way our great outdoors helps you relax, slowdown and unwind.

Our holidays set the right mindset for English learning.

If it’s good for you, it’s good for your English!
