This Club 50 course consists of 20 General English lessons complemented by 3 historic and cultural activities per week (in the afternoon). It is a great way to learn English and explore both Scottish culture and Edinburgh. An intermediate understanding of the English language is required to enter this course (minimum level B1). The course can be booked for either 1 or 2 weeks. It is also possible to book additional activities at the school, when still available.
If insufficient students are attending the course at the same level, classes will be mixed with students of all ages. So, if this situation arises, you will be in a group with not just 50+ students. 50+ Course activities will, however, always solely take place with 50+ participants.

Minimum age is 50 year .
