Learn to Speak Scots, the Fastest way Possible!

Interested in learning Scots?

Then we have good news for you!

Before we continue with the good news, let’s first learn a bit more about what Scots is, 
where it’s spoken and how it’s different from English.



What is Scots? 

Scots is one of three native languages spoken in Scotland. The other two are English and Scottish Gaelic. 

Despite the fact that Scots is closely related to English, speaking Scots is not the same as speaking English with a Scottish accent. Speaking in Scots means using many words, sayings, turns of phrase, meanings, and grammar, found only in Scots.

Where do they speak Scots?

Scots is spoken in Aberdeen, Dundee, Glasgow, and Edinburgh as well as in the Borders, Dumfries and Galloway, central Scotland, Fife, the Lothians, Tayside, Caithness, the North East and Orkney and Shetland. 

Are you planning to visit Scotland, or maybe even move there? Or maybe you’re just curious and want to learn more about the language? Learning some basic Scots can be highly rewarding.



More about the origins of Scots 

The Scots language originated with the tongue of the Angles who arrived in Scotland about 600 AD. During the Middle Ages this language developed and grew apart from its sister tongue in England, until a distinct Scots language had evolved. 

At one time Scots was the national language of Scotland, spoken by Scottish kings, and was used to write the official records of the country. 

Scots was displaced as a national language after the political union with England, in 1707, but it has continued to be spoken and written in a number of regional varieties since that time.

The Ideal Study Materials
to Learn Scots 


Where can you find a Scots course that not only teaches you the most important vocabulary, but also trains you to form sentences, so that you can eventually hold conversations with native speakers?


After more than a decade of trial and error and having learned more than 10 language ourselves, Lucas and I came to the conclusion that if we wanted a program that teaches you how to speak Scots from the beginning, we …


- Should teach the minimum amount of words that you can use to make the maximum amount of combinations.


- Should focus on the most important vocabulary that you’ll need for your first conversations


- The materials should come with native speaker audio and video learning tools


- The focus should be on the student; our priority is to let the student construct their own sentences!


- The program should be super user-friendly.


It wasn’t easy, but after years of testing, experimenting and seeing our students getting results we finally launched the ultimate recourse for beginners.

And we’ve called it:


VocaBooster Scots!

With VocaBooster Scots we’ve hand -picked the most important words in Scots for you, so that you can start speaking Scots, right away!


I’ve known Jan and Lucas for a few years and I’ve always found their language learning ideas and tips extremely useful. I was so impressed by Lucas’ story that I even mentioned him in my TED talk as a very inspiring polyglot. The talk has been watched by over 4.5 million people. 

We’ve had dozens of hours of conversation about language learning, so I know that these guys know their stuff about language learning, especially when someone is just starting. 


Highly recommended!

I have tested most language applications, books and courses out there and I can honestly say that language boost uses one of the best methods. It gets you from A-B very quickly and cuts out a lot of the useless rubbish a traditional language school might teach you. 

If you are a real stickler for detail and grammar etc. it could be a bit light, but if you are just looking to pick up and start using the language quickly, I can highly recommend these guys!

What you will get...

Now, let us tell you exactly what you will get when you enroll in VocaBooster Scots; 


The VocaBooster Scots eBook with:

The most important vocabulary in Scots​. We’ve added images and translations for each word for better memorization. 

Example sentences for the words that we teach. This way you learn to make sentences from the start and will better memorize the new vocabulary. 

Achieve 100% comprehension of every little detail with the word-by-word translations that we’ve added. 

We’ve added simple grammar notes to help you understand the structure of the language. You don’t have to memorize anything yet. 

The most important thing at this stage is to get a feel for the language and to understand how the language works.



Now you have an idea of how the language works, it’s time for some serious input. Read the eBook again in small chunks of 20 entries each time. 

Listen to the native audio recordings carefully and repeat the keywords out loud, followed by the example sentence. 

Try to memorize the key word first, later you can also try to memorize the translations of the example sentences.

Each study session shouldn't take longer than 20 minutes.



    Once you’ve studied the content from the ebook and you’ve listened to the audio over and over again, it’s time to train your output.

    A great way to do that is by using Anki.


    We’ve included an Anki Flashcard Deck* with the content of the course. This will allow you to reinforce the words and sentences that you have learned by using Anki’s Spaced Repetition System.  


    These flashcard decks are a great tool to keep everything that you learn fresh in your mind and not forget it anymore!


    *The Anki app is free for desktop and Android users, they have a paid version for iOS (Iphone users).


    What do our students say about VocaBooster?

    You learn the vocabulary in context and that really helps to memorize and to remember things. These are the words that you're going to use constantly, so I think for beginners this is really, really great! I highly recommend it!

    First I thought, that the example sentences wouldn't have such a big impact on the learning progress, but when I realized that I started placing adverbs and pronouns in the right position just after having studied some phrases before, I knew that was effective.

    I must say that I am very happy with it! I have learned German for more than a year but mainly enriching my passive vocabulary (with Assimil and LingQ). When I will have learned the 500 words and sentences, I have the feeling I will finally feel more comfortable in speaking.

    Your courses seem to be the perfect middle ground in-between saying a few cursory words, and really going for greater fluency with Glossika being my presence for that.
