Are you ready to get started at EC Cape Town?

4-week CAE Preparation @ EC Cape Town

EC Cape Town is happy to announce we are now offering an abridged Cambridge Exam Preparation course that will now run over an 8 and/or 4-week period. The course is a much shorter version than the traditional 12-week course but is being offered to allow more students the possibility to take the exam, with at least some assistance.We hope these two exciting new options will have as much benefit, especially to students who are unable to take the entire 12-week course because of work and/or study commitments but who would like to take the exam. It is now possible!   The 8-week programme is already underway and today we started the 4-week course with great excitement. We will keep you updated on their progress but its go!go!go! time.   EC Cape Town is a registered Cambridge Exam Centre and as such you have the convenience of receiving your classes and doing the exam in a space you are familiar with. There is also the added benefit of being surrounded by other exam students and a community of people who are trying to improve their English, all in the same building. So, what are you waiting for? Call Student Services to find out about your options. We also offer IELTS preparation. One word of advice though, the shorter courses are intense and thus you would need a minimum of C1 to do the Advanced course and at least a strong B2 to do the FCE. You will also need to know if you need this course for your course as Cambridge is generally a British exam, whereas IELTS is commonly used in Australia, Canada, although it is seen as an international accredited course. Do your research as you need to be prepared. See you soon!!

Grateful for the opportunity at EC Cape Town!

We asked Solaiman to tell us about his experience thus far in Cape Town First of all, I wanted to study in the USA but I was refused a visa by the Embassy. I was so sad when they refused my visa and when my friends became aware of my situation, they suggested I study in Cape Town. So I took up the challenge and applied to study English in Cape Town. Then the story began. Actually I believed that Cape Town is an old city with high levels of  poverty. When I was looking out from the plane I saw this wonderful view from a high altitude and at that moment I felt like I’m in paradise. On the first day in the new city, I had a few friends from home I met when I arrived in Cape Town and they invited me to have lunch at Ocean Basket, Waterfront. On the first day at EC School I met friends from different countries who were full of energy and activity. After the class was dismissed, my classmates decided to walk around the vicinity of the school with our teacher and afterwards to the Waterfront. Some of the activities that I did was a visit to the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, which I found to be the most beautiful place I visited so far. I also visited  Muizenberg Beach, which I found suitable for surfing. I also participated in Paint Balling which was a great adventure and even got some shots too. I have spent a great time in Cape Town and I am grateful for the opportunity to have been here. Some of my friends who have already left Cape Town were a part of my life here and I hope to see them soon. Solaiman has been … Read more
