A group of secondary students have spent a fortnight, from 2nd to 16th July, in Penicuik (Scotland). They have improved their English, lived with a host family, shared experiences with other foreign students and learnt plenty of things about the Scottish culture and their lifestyle: bagpipes, kilts, sporrans, tartans, whisky, Irn Bru, haggis, just to mentions some. They have also enjoyed the amazing Scottish landscape and scenery with its changing weather and cooler temperatures.
They have attended classes in the morning organized in different levels of no more than 8 students per class. Each afternoon they have travelled to Edinburgh to discover several attractions and museums such as “Edinburgh Castle”, “The Scottish Whisky Experience”, “Dynamic Earth” or the “National Scottish Museum”. They have also been to Glasgow where they have visited the cathedral and the Riverside Museum of Transport. Apart from these well-known cities, they have also seen the Scottish countryside and have been on a cruise in Loch Lomond.
It has been a really enriching experience that they won’t ever forget.
