Have you ever imagined studying English in Europe’s most sustainable holiday destination? If that sounds intriguing, let me introduce you to Edinburgh, Scotland, a city that recently topped the charts as the most sustainable place to visit in Europe. This accolade isn’t just about being green; it’s about the unique blend of history, culture, and forward-thinking that makes Edinburgh the perfect classroom outside the classroom.

At International House Edinburgh, we’re not just proud of this recognition; we’re excited about what it means for you as a student. Edinburgh outshone famous cities like Barcelona and Paris with its impressive score of 89 out of 100 on sustainability. This score reflects the city’s commitment to the environment, from its low pollution levels to its abundant green spaces and vegan-friendly restaurants. Imagine learning English while being surrounded by 42 nature spots and dining out at restaurants where 37% offer vegan options!

But why does this make Edinburgh an ideal place to study? First, think about the learning environment. This is a city where history meets modernity. You can practice your English by discussing the stunning architecture of the castles and palaces or by sharing your thoughts on sustainability practices with local students and professors in one of the city’s quaint cafes.

Moreover, choosing a sustainable city like Edinburgh helps you contribute to a greener planet. Travelling here by train, especially using the sleeper train option, is not just an eco-friendly choice but also an adventure in itself. Picture this: boarding a train at night, falling asleep under the stars, and waking up to the Scottish landscape while practising your English listening skills with fellow travellers.

And there’s more than just language learning. At International House Edinburgh, we encourage our students to explore the city as part of their education. Climb up to Arthur’s Seat, the peak of an extinct volcano, for a lesson not only in geography but also in perseverance and achievement. Engage in local traditions and conversations, enhancing your language skills in real-world settings.

By choosing International House Edinburgh, you’re not just enroling in a language course; you’re stepping into a living textbook of culture, sustainability, and education. Whether you’re exploring Holyrood Park or chatting about climate impact in a local bistro, every day is a new page.

So, why not turn your language learning journey into an eco-friendly adventure? Come to Edinburgh, where education meets the Earth. Let’s learn and grow together in a city that cares for the planet as much as it cares for your education. Are you ready to be part of something bigger?
