En choisissant l’Afrique du Sud je savais à quoi m’attendre niveau sécurité, c’est le principal point négatif de cette destination. Sinon j’ai beaucoup aimé la ville car il y a énormément d’activités à faire et pour tous les goûts, visites culturel, sport,.... J’ai beaucoup aimé l'école, les nationalités étaient variés mais pas énormément étant donné quand la majorité des gens étaient originaire du Brésil où d'Arabie Saoudite. Dans mon cas, J’ai apprécié car il y avait très peu de francophone.Concernant les professeurs, j’ai beaucoup aimé leurs façon d’enseigner, on avait des activités ludiques parfois mais on travaillait sérieusement.Le petit point négatif est au niveau des salles des classes, parfois la salle était trop petite par apport au nombre d’étudiants. J’ai beaucoup apprécié les cours en général.Les cours était plus ou moins dynamique en fonction des professeurs Les activités de l’école étaient souvent chères et répétées d’une semaine à l’autre mais le personnel a l'accueil répondait toujours à mes demandes et mes questions pour organiser mes propres excursion sans passer par l’école.

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.

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'll feel right at home and be able to practise your English daily in total confidence. The families live around 15-30 minutes by bus from the school, and you'll stay in a single room or twin room with half-board provided daily.

Note: It is compulsory for students under 18 to book homestay accommodation and provide a parental consent form.

New Church Street residence (ages 18 and over)
Located in the vibrant residential area of Lion’s Head, close to Long Street’s shops and bars, this Victorian house offers single, double and triple rooms; some of them are en-suite, while others share a bathroom. Enjoy the kitchen, the TV lounge and the wonderful view of Table Mountain from the balcony! Bed linen and towels are provided, Wi-Fi is free and there’s a daily cleaning service from Monday to Friday. Coin-operated laundry facilities are also available on site. The school is 25 minutes away on foot, but it’s also reachable by bus (10 minutes).

Our partner school organises a wide range of sports, (multi) cultural activities and excursions. In Cape Town, the offer is so vast it would be almost impossible not to find an activity to suit you: hiking, horse riding, fishing, sailing, diving, rafting, golf… and surfing too, of course! Don’t hesitate to take the time to visit “Tsitsikamma”, a beautiful nature reserve on both land and water. If you want to admire the majestic ballet of sea mammals, don’t miss Hermanus Bay. In the evening, having spent long hours enjoying the beach, meet at the Café Caprice to taste a local wine with your friends and let yourself be captivated by the carnal rhythms of traditional African music.
