What our students said about Glasgow


Rating: 5/5

Unfortunately I have lived part of the experience in Lockdown due to the coronavirus emergency. The city is still excellent. It has all the features, services and nightlife of a large metropolis, is definitely safe, well connected to the rest of Scotland and the nation (excursions to Scotland's tourist destinations are not to be missed and, moreover, the center is on a human scale. You can go walking everywhere, I have used very little public transport but they seemed quite efficient. The city is very characteristic (and in my opinion really beautiful), everything recalls Scottish culture and history. only negative note the food in supermarkets, expensive prices and generally poor quality.


Rating: 5/5

Modern city, overpriced.... Lots of cultural opportunities, great museums, free entry, so you can save some money. Going out is very expensive. Cheap train tickets, very good train connections to neighbouring towns. Very accessible islands in the area.


Rating: 5/5

The weather was awful. During my last days, it became sunny.


What school directors said about Glasgow

Adell Mitchell

Glasgow has the nickname ‘The Friendly City’ and is loved for its culture, museums, music, nightlife and shopping, but most of all for its people. If you travel for 45 minutes east you reach Edinburgh, if you travel 45 minutes west, you reach The Highlands. Glasgow is easy to get around by foot, bus, train or subway.

Adell MitchellDirector of Live Language English School, lives in Glasgow since 1971
