No matter who you are or where you are from, or even what cultural background you have, food will always be one of the most important things that binds us all together, simply because everybody loves it and nobody can go without it! This past Friday 23 May 2014, EC Cape Town hosted a party that did just that, brought students from all over the world to one central place to celebrate what we all love most… FOOD.
The event was organized by intern Ophelie Almagro and Academic English teacher Hardie Bosman, students came in large groups with dishes that they thought best described their countries and their cultures. It was quite a beautiful sight to see all the different dishes with interesting names, delicious aromas and exquisite tastes. A few countries to mention, Angola had a wide variety of dishes, amongst these were a delicious variety of stews which included Cow meat stew served with a portion of Pap and beans. France had a delicious Crepe with some Nutella chocolate spread, Japan had rice balls with tuna, Libya had delicious Couscous and cakes and Switzerland had a variety of mouth watering Swiss cheese and chocolates. All of the students outdone themselves, not only were their presentations spectacular, but the tastes and aromas turned EC’s Reception area into the kitchen of a 10 star hotel.
All in all the atmosphere was filled with joy and laughter and ultimately this is exactly what we intended for as our students work and study hard throughout the week to improve their Academic English skills. Here at EC Cape Town we strive to let our students create as many good memories to take home with them as possible.
We have lots of fun activities for our students and we try to accommodate each students requests, whether it is to see the famous Table Mountain, or to simply experience the South African Townships, we do our very best to ensure that before their English course ends that their wishes are made real. Memories are a very important factor, especially when travelling abroad and meeting new people, our aim is to have our students look back and only have fond memories of their stay here at EC Cape Town.
As a student enrolled on one of EC’s academic English programs, you get the opportunity to join your fellow students to attend many exciting events, activities as well as safari tours all around Cape Town and South Africa.
