Despite being on holiday, we didn’t want to lie down on the beach doing nothing but, on the contrary, we wanted to discover a new country, interesting people and, as a bonus, improve our English. That’s the reason why we chose Cape Town as a destination for our language stay. It’s one of the most beautiful cities in he world! There are activities for all tastes and for all budgets: surf, bungee-jumping, diving with white sharks, safaris, wine tasting on the picturesque Garden Route and much more. You can walk for hours on the promenade along the sea or simply enjoy the beautiful beach. Many bars and cafés fill the nights of the city with life. Climbing up Table Mountain is highly recommended as the view over the city and the Atlantic is fantastic.
We liked the EC Cape Town school a lot. The teachers made sure we never got bored during the classes and we learned more useful English with them than during all our school years at home. The countries of origin of our fellow students were impressive as well: Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Russia, Angola, Syria, Brazil, Colombia, Turkey and many more nations were represented.
The school also organized leisure and sport activities. Together with the other students in our class we climbed up Lion’s Head to enjoy the sunset. For the brave ones, there is the possibility to jump with an experienced paraglider!
Time passed too quickly. We came back to Germany with many lasting impressions and tanned by the sun of Cape Town. We left there many new friends. We stayed in contact with some of them and we plan to see each other again soon. Thanks ESL Hamburg for the perfect organization of our language stay!
