EC Cape Town students at the 2 Ocean Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront

Do you love aquatic  fish but are scared to swim in the ocean? Or perhaps you want to see the serenic colors, textures and sizes of the fishes from the deep blue South African ocean? Here at EC Cape Town we try our utmost best to allow our students to experience and see the beauty of Cape Town and what we have to offer. Last week , students joined Ophelie to the Two Oceans Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. They saw lots of different types of fish and even got to play with the Penguins!     EC Cape Town, the only South African based English school under the EC flag, hosts many students that comes to study English, as well as see the beauty of South Africa. 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. __________________________________ Remember to follow us on Facebook or Twitter RELATED BLOG POSTS Lion’s Head 2 Day Safari ~ 4- 5 May

Hot Chocolate in Cape Town

Winter has hit Cape Town and what better way than to get cosy than sipping a delicious cup of hot chocolate? Nicoletta (Director Of Studies) and Rifqah (Accomodations Officer) were found enjoying a steaming cup of hot chocolate in the lounge. Here is how to make an awesome, toasty cup for you and your friend or you can even make some, put it in a flask and bring it to EC Cape Town, the best English Language School in South Africa, to share with your classmates and English teacher. Nicoletta will happily do a taste- test:)     Nicoletta’s Chill Fighting Hot Choc: Makes 2 cups. Half a slab of your favourite milk chocolate 200ml Hot milk Honey or Caramel (if you like) A handful of mini marshmallows Whipped cream   Directions: Melt the chocolate in the microwave (stir every 5 seconds). Pour the hot milk and chocolate in a bowl and whisk. Pour into cups, top with the whipped cream, marshamallows and drizzle with honey or caramel. Alternatives: You can get ready whipped cream in a can. Nestle makes yummy hot chocolate powder- it makes more cups but less creamy. Remember- this is extra delicious if you share it, #ecexperince!!  __________________________________ Remember to follow us on Facebook or Twitter RELATED BLOG POSTS Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows!
