Florie Pingoud
Florie Pingoud
EC Cape Town
Duration: 16 weeks

My name is Florie Pingoud. I combined a course with an internship in South Africa, more specifically in Cape Town. My role during the internship was to take part in a project to help refugees and migrants defend their rights in the country. This included dealing with interesting issues such as Gay and lesbian rights, HIV, violence against women and refugee rights. Working and studying English in this context helped me learn much more about South Africa. I had lots of fun there and the place is beautiful. I believe South Africa still has a long way to go to become a totally safe country and a mixed-race nation, but I enjoyed learning more about that. My aim is to finally find a job in an NGO as an anthropologist.

Host family
Staying with a host family in Cape Town is undoubtedly one of the best ways to practise the language and immerse yourself in the South African culture. All the host families are chosen with the greatest care by our partner school, so that you will feel at home and be able to practise your English daily in total confidence. The families are situated around 30 minutes by bus away from the school. You will stay in a single or double room with half board provided daily.

New Church Street residence
You’ll stay in a Victorian house with single, double and triple rooms, a 25-minute walk from the school (or a 10-minute bus ride). Some of the rooms are en-suite, while others share a bathroom. Towels and bed linen are included, as well as the Wi-Fi and the daily cleaning service from Monday to Friday. Relax in the TV lounge, cook in the kitchen and enjoy the stunning view of Table Mountain from the balcony! Laundry facilities are available at an extra cost. The residential area of Lion’s Head is vibrant and full of bars, restaurants and shops... Enjoy it!
