Award-winning Foreign Language School:

• We use digital media projects, team building activities and adventure sports to bring language learning to life!

Why Choose Articulate Language Camps?

 Enthusiasm & Commitment
Our enthusiasm, commitment and love for languages is evident in all of our camps. We whole-heartedly believe that language learning is easier when it’s meaningful and fun!

 Unique Teaching Methods
We teach languages outside of a conventional classroom. Articulate uses a project-based approach to teaching, and we love to take learning into the great outdoors.

• Small Class Sizes
We believe in high-quality, personalised tuition and care. All of our camp sessions are small with no more than 22 campers to make sure that everyone feels included, valued and has a very personalised language learning experience. 

• A Unique Language Learning Experience!
What makes our International Camp completely unique and different from other camps is that our students actually work together with the young native speakers of the language they are studying. For example, English-speaking campers learning French work on projects with the French campers learning English. This is what makes our summer language school one of the most meaningful, authentic language learning experiences in the UK.

Learn, Laugh, Live:

Excursions for Students in our International Camp:

Images of Articulate Language Camps, Scotland• A huge part of coming to camp in Scotland is experiencing the country. That’s why we have two excursions where our foreign campers can discover something new and our British campers can act as experienced tour guides for their new friends.

• We spend one full day in an exciting Scottish city where campers take part in cultural and structured activities as well as having some independence and opportunities to shop for souvenirs and explore the city.

• Last year, we visited Glasgow and experienced the city chambers, international markets and the iconic Buchanan Street for some shopping. Our city excursion is always a great day out and is often a highlight of the camp. This year’s excursions will most definitely also include a visit to a beautiful Scottish island and a new city.

• Afternoon excursions gives campers the chance to see the beautiful Scottish countryside. This year’s excursions will most definitely include a visit to a beautiful Scottish island.
