As rich in colour as a painting by the South African artist Gerard Sekoto and as natural as an Alpine meadow: this is how one of the three main cities in South Africa welcomes its visitors. Bordered by an impressive mountain range, Cape Town lies between two oceans and has become a melting pot of different cultures.

Cape Town feels like a European city and at the same time is home to a warm-hearted South African atmosphere. The multicultural population greatly contributes to this mix. It personifies the bright and exciting mix of Africa and Europe, of Caribbean flair and Spanish serenity. People in Cape Town do not just expand your cultural understanding; a language stay in South Africa enriches and broadens your English knowledge too. Embark on a language stay of new horizons and language learning that is in a class of its own – with the Eurocentres Language School in Cape Town.

Picturesque – What to see and how to get there

Sightseeing in and around Cape Town

In the background, Table Mountain blazes in the red evening sun; on the beaches, the white spray of the famous South African waves leaves foam drawings down the shores. The natural world in South Africa provides numerous destinations for trips in the summer and in the winter – called the green season in South Africa. The Devil’s Peak, the Lion’s Head and, of course, Table Mountain attract visitors with their unforgettable hiking tours under the South African sun. The hikes bring you up the slopes and to the summits of these colossal rock formations.
The Malay Quarter is and the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront are also worth seeing, with their unique, brightly coloured houses. Next to a charming harbour, you will be entertained by street musicians and amateur actors from all over the world. The famous South African wine, which is native to the exclusive suburb of Constantia, south of Cape Town, is shipped out to the entire world. A trip to the wine region is always rewarding – and puts your tongue to a welcome test, and not just from a linguistic point of view.

The first brushstroke – Getting to Cape Town

Just as every masterpiece starts with the first brushstroke, every language study abroad starts with a comfortable journey. Getting to Cape Town by plane from Frankfurt or Munich Airport is easy. Overnight flights are also recommended. That way, you arrive in Cape Town fully rested and can begin your language stay straight away and full of energy. Cape Town has had a well-developed tram network ever since the football World Cup in 2010 – a recommended alternative to buses and taxis for getting around town and getting to the Eurocentres Language School.

Colourful – Eurocentres language school

During your language stay in Cape Town you will find ideas and inspiration on every corner for you to form your own impression of the diversity of South Africa. The Eurocentres Language School also gives you the right tools to get to know all the nuances of the English language. Use the language in everyday life as naturally as the residents of Cape Town. A good number of classrooms and a well-stocked media library have created the ideal conditions for foreign language learning. In addition, there are lounges for unimpeded development and free wifi access, which, even at one of the most southerly points of Africa, will connect you to your loved ones back home. Our excellent range of language courses, which cover a variety of certificates, rounds off this offer and will prepare you well for a stroll through Cape Town’s numerous weekly markets. There is something new to discover every day.

The final artwork of English language learning

With your newly-acquired skills, you can head from one adventure to the next in Cape Town. The town lives and pulsates, constantly changing its colours and shapes, and giving you new impetus to use and hone your English language skills. Chat, for example, with the artisans or listen to the sounds in the many jazz pubs in the city centre. You can also draw on one of the many trips offered by the language school itself. From paragliding to whale watching, there is something for everyone. Anyone who would like to experience the South African way of life at first-hand should check out the drum cafés. These can only be found by asking around or poring over event magazines, as there are no firmly-established addresses. It’s a good opportunity, though, to test out your language knowledge.

    “I have been studying at Eurocentres for four months, since I arrived, I felt like I was part of a family. Everyone was so friendly and ready to help with anything I needed. At Eurocentres I enjoyed meeting new people and spending time with my friends who came from different parts of the world. I learnt a lot of facts about other countries and cultures.
    The level of teaching was also very high and I was able to reach my objective in English. The installations of the school were great and the location was near to everything and comfortable. Now my time is finished and I feel sad because I have to say goodbye to the school. I would have loved to remain a bit longer….Thank you Eurocentres!”
