Visiting the Company’s Garden

Students had an awesome time with teacher Chimonay of EC’s English School in Cape Town. The group visited the Company’s Garden and this was a nice opportunity to get to know each other a bit better. By participating in this activity students learned out the importance of looking after nature and they became more conscious of the roles that humans play in their environment. Afterwards there was some time to relax and everybody enjoyed some nice coffee in a local coffee shop.   __________________________________ Remember to follow us on Facebook or Twitter RELATED BLOG POSTS Coffee with teacher Chimonay   A visit to the Slave Lodge

A visit to the Slave Lodge

Teacher Chimonay of EC’s English Language School in Cape Town took her Intermediate class students to the Slave Lodge. The Slave lodge is the second oldest building in South Africa and served initially as a lodge for the slaves of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) and subsequently as the first post office, library and supreme court. The Museum houses for example collections of ceramics, toys, silver and textiles as well as artifacts from ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. Besides that there is a lot to find about Cape Town’s history and the slavery. Students got to learn about Cape Town’s history and discussed how much it has changed. It was a very informative outing with a lot of new vocabulary and history. __________________________________ Remember to follow us on Facebook or Twitter RELATED BLOG POSTS Coffee with teacher Chimonay Celebrating the birthday of a classmate
