We are committed to excellent service standards. Clients will receive individual attention and the help that they need to achieve their goals. It is very important to us that they enjoy their entire stay and our philosophy is to take both professional and personal care of them. Our school is situated in Sea Point, a beach front suburb on the Atlantic seaboard of Cape Town. Sea Point is one of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan areas of Cape Town. Only ten minutes from the city center, it has a beautiful seafront promenade where you can walk, jog, play soccer or simply relax and watch the sunset over the sea. The school is very close to the world famous Clifton beaches and the V & A Waterfront, a major tourist attraction with many different things to do. In the Main Road of Sea Point you have easy access to all public transport, many different restaurants, shops, banks, the post office, supermarkets and anything else you need. The area is clean, neat and safe, and has beautiful mountain and sea views.

Our courses are of the highest quality and are continually evaluated to ensure that students learn from the best materials, with the latest methodologies. We are committed to providing high quality English language training in a professional yet interesting, relaxed and friendly environment. Our classes are small with a maximum of 8 students, which enables our teachers to pay individual attention to their needs and ensure they achieve their goals.

Before students start, we evaluate their level carefully to ensure that they join the right class. Thereafter, we continue to evaluate their progress, discussing any special requirements they have so that together we can make the best decisions for their future. Our teachers are well-qualified and experienced; they will give them the knowledge and confidence to use their English to the best of their ability. Our lessons are designed around the skills they need and they will practice their structure, reading, writing, listening and speaking. Students will always have more than one teacher so that they listen and respond to two different voices, and the more they practice the faster they will learn. At the end of their course they will receive a course certificate, which shows their level of English.

*English Courses

- General English

General English is our standard course which gives you a good foundation in all aspects of the English Language and is designed to improve your level. Using a course book and supplementary materials you will practice all four language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing.

- Intensive English

The intensive English course is the same as the general English course but with the advantage of two extra lessons in the afternoon. This enables you to progress faster. The extra lessons focus on improving your language use so that you can communicate with greater fluency and accuracy.

- Intensive English Plus

The intensive English plus course is the same as the intensive course but with the advantage of an extra one-to-one lesson. This gives you the advantage of the group course with a private lesson structured around your needs. This ensures a greater level of individual attention and a faster rate of progress in the time you have available.

- International Business English

The Business English course is a combination of the general
English course and the London Chamber of Commerce & Industry's English for Business course. Grammar and vocabulary are practiced in a work context and combined with business skills such as presentations, telephoning, negotiations and business writing. The course includes the option of ending with an examination for the internationally recognized LCCI Certificate.

- Cambridge Examination Preparation

Preparation courses for the Cambridge FCE (First Certificate), CAE (Advanced) and CPE (Proficiency) certificates. Students participate in the general English classes in the mornings to improve their fluency and accuracy, and then do specific exam training in the afternoon. Practice exams are done to ensure you are familiar with the different techniques of the exams.

- Toefl Test Preparation

Preparation classes for the American TOEFL test. This course is suitable for students who will be studying in the United States and South Africa. It consists of the General English course with extra lessons in the afternoons focusing specifically on the skills needed for the test. We also go through practice tests to ensure that you are familiar with the format and techniques of the test.

- Ielts Test Preparation

Preparation classes for the IELTS test. This course is for students who are going to English speaking countries to study or work. Select either the Academic or General training module depending on your needs. Training consists of the General English course to improve fluency and accuracy, with extra lessons focusing specifically on the skills needed for the test.

- Academic Semester/Year Program

The more time you have to study the more fluent you will become. With six to twelve months of learning and practicing your English every day you can achieve fantastic results. With the academic year program you can advance through the different language levels until you are proficient.

- Private (One-to-One) Lesson

These are individual lessons for students with specific needs or limited time. Classes are structured around the exact needs of the student and maximize the students learning time.

Other Activities:
Cape Town with its splendid beauty and golden rich culture is the perfect city to learn in, live in and fall in love with! Known as the mother city it lies between the sea and mountains and its natural beauty is impossible to escape. From the magnificent splendor of Table Mountain, across the white beaches and breaking waves, through the buzzing cosmopolitan city and into the vibrant nightlife...your memories of Cape Town will live on forever!

You have chosen the right city, now choose the right school. Based in vibrant Sea Point, our school is centrally located, close to shops, the Waterfront and just around the corner from our famous beaches. Our school is smaller than most and we pride ourselves on a professional approach in a relaxed and friendly environment. Because we are small, the students quickly get to know each other and social circles are easily formed. Our social program is a great way to interact with fellow students outside the classroom. We enjoy dinners together; Cape Town has some great restaurants. We go for sunset picnics or a game of beach volley ball – the perfect way to end the day. You may want to join us at a museum, and if music is your thing, come and dance with us in the vibey clubs and bars. The social program is based around what YOU want to see and do.

- Get in Touch With Nature

For those who enjoy nature, the options are endless. Take a hike up the world famous Table Mountain and watch the world from above, or try a sunset walk up Lions Head and admire the full moon as it sets over the city. Explore Kirstenbosch gardens with its abundance of fauna and flora. Ride the waves and enjoy the surf in False Bay. Grab your saddle and go for a horseback ride along the beach. Cape Town’s natural beauty will keep you entertained for hours.

- Cultural Cape Town

Cape Town's streets are filled with history, and the museums expose our fascinating culture. The walking city tour is a great way to orientate yourself around the city. A trip to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, is an experience that should not be missed. Our township tour gives you a true taste of township life, with the residents proudly welcoming you to their homes and introducing you to their traditions.

- For the Adventurous

For those who love the thrill of adrenalin, Cape Town offers a large variety of adventure sport. Abseil down Table Mountain, go shark cage diving, para glide off Lions head, go kite-surfing, or try the ‘bungy’ jump off Bloukrans Bridge, the world's highest bungy jump!

These are just a few of the many options you have in Cape Town; we promise to make your learning experience an unforgettable one!
