I liked everything very much! An efficient type of vacation, Edinburgh and the whole of Scotland are unreal beautiful. I took the usual course, but every day was so full of events that I did not have time to take a breath. Night in pubs every Thursday - only this event is worth going!

As for the residence - the residence Canal Point, the conditions are excellent, everyone lives in rooms for one, in the kitchen you can cook, the living room to relax.

The teacher was great, the course is very effective.

I recommend this school and the city to everyone!

July 2017

I really loved my trip to Edinburgh! Just amazing and wonderful city. Staff at school was very nice to me, always ready to help. I've heard that some students didn't like their tutors, but i was lucky - my teacher Sara was such a cutie, i think the best one. Books were given out for 2 weeks, so when i arrived students in my group had already done half of the book, strange organisation at this point. Entertaining programme was good enough, hardly had i stayed at home during the day-time. I have stayed at the Canal Point residence - new and tidy, but there were some construction works nearby what was a little bit noisy.

To sum up - there were some drawbacks, however i definitely recommend this school!

I would like to thank Linguatrip team for such an awesome summer!


It's been a while now since I was at Kaplan, but I still remember it very well. The staff was always friendly and helpful, the classrooms are having modern technology, the teachers I had ( Martin and Bobby especially ) were great, awesome, lovely, interesting, funny and much more! I met a lot of new people from all over the world. The city is great with a lot of opportunities and the staff is always willing to give some great recommendations. I really loved the time ! I hope to come back someday.


Kaplan is so good and everyone who studies here is very lucky to be part of such a good language school. Now I can talk with anyone without having to stop and think.
