Esta bien la zona pero es insegura a partir de las 7pm cuando se va el sol.Te tienes que desplazar siempre en vehiculos, se echa de menos la libertad de poder pasear anchamente x las noches despues de cenar. No es barato comer bien, pero eso ya lo sabia. Los profesores son un encanto pero encanto a lo que se refiere a aprender gramatica ( cosa que me gusta muchisimo) deja mucho que desear. Por otro lado la comida de la escuela es muy basica y deja mucho que desear por lo que la mayoria de los dias nos ibamos a comer fuera. Todo el personal es super amable y siempre con una sonrisa en la cara pero las instalaciones son penosas en proporcion a lo que me cobras x alojarme, sale mucho mejor cogerte un apartamento. Mi profesora casey es un amor Las instalaciones son relativanente viejas(100 anos) almohadas como sino. Etc Las excursiones son contratadas en la escuela con empresas locales Como vacaciones esta bien pero si de verdad quieres aprender ingles cape town no es el lugar apropiado.

La ciudad me ha parecido impresionante y la estancia era muy cómoda. En cuanto al país, daría las 5 estrellas si no fuera por su situación política y olas de ataques xenófobos que han estado surgiendo últimamente. La única crítica es que a veces no tienes solo un profesor, en 4 semanas tuve tres profesores distintos y cuesta seguir un buen ritmo

J'ai eu plusieurs fois l'impression que mon niveau stagnait en classe et je sais qu'a certain moment j'aurais appris mieux par moi même qu'en venant en classe je trouve ça dommage vu le prix que l'on paie l'école. Il faut certainement améliorer la méthode d'enseignement. Le petit déjeuner est ridicule comparé à celui de l'école.

LAL, Cape Town
Duration: 12 weeks

Cape Town is really a mad place! I have never been somewhere more intense, colourful and surprising. As to the English lessons, there's nothing to say… Very well organised and the teachers are really accessible. You can do any sport which comes to mind here: parachuting, climbing, diving, golfing, surfing… The national parks are amazing, the parties in Cape Town extraordinary and there's always a sense of adventure... Don't hesitate to go there!

LAL, Cape Town
Duration: 20 weeks

I spent 5 months at LAL school in Cape Town to improve my English and get the Cambridge First Certificate. I stayed at the school, which is ideally located in the Sea Point neighborhood; between oceans and mountains, between the city center and the beaches. The accent of the English spoken in Cape Town is easy to understand and I therefore made very quick progress. The teachers were all young, motivated and competent. It is also great to study in small groups (max. 8 students) with people of all nationalities (among them, not many French). There is a lot to do and see in Cape Town and its surroundings. Moreover, the climate is very nice and the low cost of life is very interesting compared to other destinations… In Cape Town, I never got bored and I thank ESL for guiding me and helping me find a school. This was, without a shadow of a doubt, an unforgettable trip!

LAL, Cape Town
Duration: 10 weeks

Cape Town is an amazing city with probably the most beautiful sunset in the the world. The landscapes are breathtaking and the climate allowed me to enjoy a lot of outdoor activities. People are very friendly and open-minded. I also learned a lot from the mix different cultures. Concerning the school, I attended a 3 months Cambridge course. My teacher was excellent and we were only 3 students in the class so the conditions to improve my English were optimal. I will never forget this experience and will go back to South Africa as soon as possible.
