Free English Language classes at EC Cape Town

At EC Cape Town we aim to provide students with the best English language classes in South Africa and with our free class program, we have ensured that students will always have something extra. One of the recent lessons focused on adverbs and students had to write their own adverbial poem – pretty cool! Here are some of the best ones. The first is from Juliana who is currently in the Advanced class Ego’s eroding Enlightenment achieved urgently But you opened up so quietly Past lives are seen carefully As the Universe expands lovingly Raphael who is in Intermediate level gave us this sweet piece: I was walking nervously Because I knew a girl speaking lovingly I talked with her carefully Suddenly she hugged and kissed me slowly Sarah and Katja worked on the next poem together; both are Upper Intermediate students Snow I drive through the mountains slowly I look up at the snow-capped peaks lovingly The soft, white snow is falling quietly, I try to drive carefully Suddenly I turn around My ski experience ends tragically And finally Gustavo, who is also at Intermediate level wrote about some of the characters who regularly attend free class, it is simply entitled: Free Class Carla comes along quietly Raphael is always arriving slowly Joao is talking shyly Katja makes me miss her sadly Sometimes I do my work lazily And the teacher instructs lovingly

Free classes @ EC Cape Town

EC language school has always made a point of offering our students a variety of free activities to extend their learning and provide more ways to practise their language abilities.  When you arrive at EC, you have already booked a course but you will also be offered a free social programme and language workshops/classes which you are able to attend.  The English school in Cape Town is no different. At our school you are able to hike up Table Mountain in a few different ways, play soccer and volunteer your time as part of the Rainbow Dreamers project. EC Cape Town also offers you a free class EVERY day – from extra grammar, reading and pronunciation classes to writing, listening and speaking sessions. We are committed to giving our students the best advantage to learn and immerse themselves in this new language. Normally, free classes are offered once a day but during the peak season (summer) we have a large volume of students and so free classes are offered twice a day as the school adopts a double banking system. Double banking basically means students have General classes at two separate times of the day, one group (or bank) starts their lessons in the morning and one group (or bank) starts in the afternoon. Elective classes remain the same for all students (12.30 – 14.00). So that means Intensive students in the morning group (bank) finish at 14.00 and those who are in the afternoon group (bank) will end their day at 17.30. Students who only have 20 hours a week will finish at 11.45 (morning group) or will start at 14.15 (afternoon group) To ensure ALL students have the benefit of free classes, EC Cape Town will be offering free classes thrice a day. Students who have Elective classes during … Read more
