Magdalena from Switzerland passed her CAE exam!

Last December, all the students from the CAE and FCE classes took part in their different Cambridge exams. One of our student, Magdalena, successfully passed her CAE exam. She’s still at English School EC Cape Town to achieve a new goal, the CPE exam. Her teacher Samia wanted to express her happiness about Magdalena’s success: “Magdalena Rychly joined my CAE Preparation Course in September 2014 with one goal in mind – to achieve a ‘B’ symbol (75–79%) in her CAE exam. She soon proved to be a bright and determined student; and with hard work, diligent attendance, excellent class participation – and a lot of homework and reading – she comfortably achieved her aim. She’s now enrolled in the CPE class, where I’m sure she’ll do equally well. Congratulations and good luck, Magdalena!” Magdalena also wanted to show her gratitude to her teacher: “I really appreciated the 12 weeks with my teacher Samia in the CAE course. She gave me the preparation and the confidence to achieve my goal. I would like to thank her for the great job she did. “ In addition of the Cambridge exams, the school also offer the possibility to take part in the IELTS courses in Cape Town, which are part of English courses for education and exams offered at EC Cape Town! __________________________________ Remember to follow us on Facebook or Twitter RELATED BLOG POSTS Student’s testimonial – Kokoro from Japan Student that has come and gone

Student’s testimonial – Kokoro from Japan

Kokoro Yoshimatsu is our only Japanese student at English School EC Cape Town where she took part in general English lessons. Today is her last day and she would like to share about her stay to study English in South Africa: “I return to the studies, I am 37 years old!” “At first, I even felt a sense of guilt. But it was changed when the life of EC started. At EC School, there are various students, age, position. Nationality are all different! Even some “Mum students”! Many teachers, friends and people who I met in Cape Town taught me : “It is not too late in the life.” And I have met many students from Africa, Middle East, South America, the person who I didn’t have much in Japan. We talked about each culture, outlook on religion and thought to each country. It was a wonderful experience!” __________________________________ Remember to follow us on Facebook or Twitter RELATED BLOG POSTS Student that has come and gone Another Friday, another graduation ceremony

EC Cape Town Student Donates Book to Library

When students leave EC Cape Town, they don’t leave for good they always find themselves a month or two later back at EC visiting all the staff its like they are glued to our team! We in all honesty cannot blame them, we welcome each student, past and present with open arms into our family, we simply love seeing them smile and feeling at home. Below mentioned is one of our students that recently graduated from EC, he decided to make a last “pop-in”before leaving EC Cape Town and South Africa for his home land. Ahmed Bafgeesh, one of our students from Yemen that completed the Academic Year 30 Program, loved spending every spare minute he could in the Library. Reading is an important step for each of our students as this helps them to understand and build sentences. A day before leaving South Africa, ending 7 months with the EC family, he decided to come back to his home away from home and leave his mark, he did so by donating a book to one of his favorite places in the school, the library! Teacher Hardie Bosman, one of the teachers that assists students when renting out a book, gladly accepted and added his donation to our collection of books! Thank you Ahmed for your generous donation, we will surely miss you at EC Cape Town and we wish you all of the best of luck for your future endeavors! __________________________________ Remember to follow us on Facebook or Twitter RELATED BLOG POSTS English Language Students of EC Cape Town Share your #ECEXPERIENCE with our global community of EC English students

One-to-One private English lessons get TWO thumbs up!

by the EC Academic Department The Academic Team at EC Cape Town makes a concerted effort to fulfill our student’s needs. While this may not always be feasible or realistic, it is something that we strive towards. An example of this is the experience that Christian and Christina (both from Germany) had during their time studying English at EC Cape Town. This is what they had to say about their recent One-to-One private English classes they had with our English teacher Jeffrey: “Especially for advanced students, a private teacher is the most efficient way to fine-tune their English skills. Compared to regular English classes, private lessons offer students the opportunity to focus on their individual needs and to work on specific areas. This results in a customization of the overall language training where courses are adapted to the individuals’ level. Within a confidential learning atmosphere, problems or common mistakes can be directly addressed, discussed and corrected immediately. Even though private lessons have been challenging for us, we really enjoyed the style of learning and appreciated the outcome.”  Are you interested in One-to-One lessons at EC Cape Town? __________________________________ Remember to follow us on Facebook or Twitter RELATED BLOG POSTS English Lessons on the Beach Why Choose Cape Town?
