Adventure, excitement and English in one of the world’s most stunning locations

Learn English in Cape Town

Famed for its unusual flora and fauna, could there be a more exotic destination than Cape Town?

The appeal of South Africa's 'Mother City' lies in its diversity. It is a multicultural city where old and new come together to make something spectacular. Backed by rugged Table Mountain, Cape Town is blessed with awe inspiring natural beauty. 

In the heart of the city, EC Cape Town is just a few streets away from all the action of famous Long Street. The school is warm and welcoming with fantastic facilities and situated in a beautifully renovated heritage building.
