Facebook iconOur aim is to encourage people like us (who have come to live in East Lothian) to share experiences about their new life here.

We want to help you to settle down, make some friends and to provide any information you need, as we know it is not an easy step to start a new life in another country.

We hope that you like our idea and join us! Smile

  • Check potential classes which are held in Musselburgh, Haddington, Dunbar and North Berwick. Find out which class is right for you.

How to pay?

  • The Fisherrow website group and conversation groups are free.
  • For all others you have to pay. Before you start your new class you have to pay before you start.
  • However, you might be able to have lessons paid by opening an ILA (Individual Learning Account). (An ILA is Government help for students who do not have a university degree) 

What is an ILA and how apply for it.
