A colourful state that vibrates like no other on the continent, this territory of more than a million square kilometres has more to offer than its sandy coasts and immense northern grasslands.A legendary landmark for sailors, the Cape of Good Hope overlooks the meeting of two oceans. It's no coincidence, then, that on this hallowed site a city was established with a quality of life that inspires the rest of the country. Reflection of a radiant South Africa. The climate is mild, which does not exclude some scorching festive nights. And especially the chance to make contact with a population that wants to build bridges with the rest of the world. Nelson Mandela, a political prisoner for decades and then the first President of his liberated homeland, wanted to make South Africa a model, a motor for the whole of Africa. This task is now passed on to the urban youth, for whom apartheid is becoming more and more an abstraction. A generation that mixes. Platinum producers who respect their ancient Xhosa or Zulu culture. Sons and daughters of Afrikaners who learn, in the prestigious universities, that the country’s history did not begin with the arrival of a European boat. It’s also enough to leave the developed coasts to discover one of the most sublime regions in the world. The gigantic animal reserve of Kruger National Park. The vineyards that stretch as far as the eye can see. And a land where the glorious underground mines (South Africa produces 20% of the world’s gold) tell a lot about what’s going on above.

Language study abroad in Cape Town, South Africa
http://www.esl-languages.com - What an unforgettable adventure it must be to travel to South Africa to learn English! Here, four international students, Cédric, Catarina, Riana and Suro tell us about their experiences learning English at the EC school in Cape Town. They appreciate the relaxed, friendly environment offered by the school where they have every opportunity to practise and improve their English, both during the English classes and during breaks when they get to chat with the other students. Cape Town is a fascinating place to stay, from a historical and cultural point of view, and there is no shortage of activities to keep students occupied during their free time, including going to the beach, admiring the wildlife on a safari and even going winetasting in the vineyards South Africa is famous for.
