EC, Cape Town
Duration: 4 weeks

Cape Town is a sunny town that is full of colours; it is a destination where the landscapes as well as the mix of welcoming and smiling people fill you with delight. It is a destination where you can stop and admire the sunset, and also a destination where you can dance… you would almost forget that you are there to improve your English. But the teachers are so friendly and dynamic that they know how to make you work with a good spirit! Whatever happens, you always shed a tear when you leave this international atmosphere and this town where some eventually decide to settle down for good!

EC, Cape Town 
Duration: 13 weeks

The aim of my trip was not only to take a Cambridge exam, but also to combine studies with pleasure. In Cape Town, I made the most out of every day! The EC school was certainly the best aspect of my trip. The teachers were exceptional and encouraged me to always do my best. What’s more, there were only 6 students in my class, which enabled me to improve my English very fast. I was staying at the residence "Mountain View". The rooms were nice and spacious. It is the perfect accommodation option in order to meet students from all over the world. When I arrived in Cape Town, I immediately knew that it was the best place to learn English. They are plenty of bars, restaurants and clubs to enjoy yourself. I had the chance to visit unique places like Table Mountain, Robben Island, the Cape of Good Hope, etc…. I am extremely grateful to ESL for recommending the EC school in Cape Town to me. I would not have wanted to go anywhere else to take my Cambridge exam, discover new places and have fun.

EC, Cape Town 
Duration: 13 weeks

I liked Cape Town a lot. It is a very active city where you can do many activities. The landscapes and atmosphere are amazing and the inhabitants are very friendly. I stayed in a residence. It was modern and always clean. Sharing the accommodation with people of so many different nationalities was a pleasure. Talking with other students enabled me to share my experience while improving my English skills. The teachers were excellent. They were not only teachers: you could talk to them if you had any problem. It was important to me and I was glad about that. I strongly recommend the EC school ! My three months in Cape Town went by so quickly and this experience will remain engraved on my memory forever.

The families live around 20 minutes by bus from the school, and you'll stay in a single room with half-board provided daily.
