Staying with a real English-speaking family is a great way for students to practice their English and to learn about the local culture. At EC Cape Town our Accommodation Coordinator, Rifqah Brenner, regularly recruits new host families & visits current host families to ensure suitability & that EC’s standards are met.
A review from a student currently in a host family situated in the popular & nearby district of the Bo- Kaap:
“I had a very friendly host family. The food was excellent and I had a lot of time to talk with them which was very useful. My host mum baked me scones for breakfast! :-)”
