I Climbed a Volcano in Edinburgh - Outside English Lesson

I recently took a trip to Edinburgh – the capital of Scotland. It’s a beautiful city and I wanted to share a little bit of it today. The purpose of this video is to share some new English phrases, provide listening practice, and show you the beauty of this city.

We’ll begin by climbing a 350-400 million-year-old volcano, then exploring the town a bit and ending up in the boticancal gardens. Hope you enjoy!
