What is ELA’s Film Production & Applied English course?

Over ten school days, students will traverse Edinburgh’s Old and New Towns - and perhaps outside the city to nearby small towns and villages to record images, thoughts and impressions in this exciting multi-medial based project. The programme will wend its way through ghosts and legends, arts and culture, history and modernity, food, fashion, sports and leisure - and much more!

The resulting video diary can be shared with friends and family and can even form part of school project work.

To prepare for the practical elements of the quest, each morning begins with English language and preparation for the day’s adventure. Qualified and experienced teachers lead the students as they prepare, write and record their views.

Maximum class size: 15

Goals and Outcomes

This creative programme is intended to immerse students in an interactive approach to language learning whilst allowing them to formulate their own individual points of view about the subjects they encounter. The resulting video diary will be a realised piece of work which can be used as project or exam work - but which will also fulfil a visual and spoken memory of an extraordinary trip to the historic andcultural capital of Scotland.  

The course will visit many of the historic sites of Edinburgh but students will also have the opportunity to discover local

  • Food and restaurants
  • Shopping and fashion
  • Sport and leisure
  • Ghosts and legends
  • We hope to welcome you to ELA soon!
