The first day of class the students will take a level test that will determine which group they belong to, according to their results. The course includes a total of 15 hours per week, distributed in 3 daily hours from Monday to Friday.
The students will be accommodated in the school itself in single, double, triple or quadruple rooms. The residential area also has some living rooms with a TV, a video player and a microwave oven. The students also have a computer room with Internet access at their disposal. The counselors will be lodged in the same residence, so the students are under a 24-hour supervision. The students will enjoy a full board treatment.
The course includes a varied cultural and sports program. Every afternoon, after classes, they will be able to enjoy activities like theatre, basketball, dancing, football or jewelry design, as well as local visits. Every week the students will go on a hal-day excursion to Edinburgh, Stirling or North Berwick, as well as full-day excursions to Glasgow, St. Andrew's or Culzean and Ayr. After-dinner, the students will enjoy a varied entertainment program, with such activities as typical Scottish dances, karaoke or bingo.
Students will be accompanied at all times by local native English councelors. At their arrival at the Edinburgh airport a school counselor will be waiting for them, as well as at the time of their departure, when a counselor will accompany them up to the police control.
