When I have arrived in the academy, My first impression was amazing and enthusiastic because of the multicultural environment and the caring teachers. I have enjoyed the school a lot because the lessons were very interesting and very interactive. I have learnt so much, I have improved my communication skills and enriched my vocabulary. Before join the english plus academy I used to communicate using the informal language what was not appropriate for the my profissional environment however since i joined the school I felt more confident to speak and able to do my work using my advanced English because the school is not only about grammar study but also about the practical lessons 🤗I deeply recommend.

I highly recommend this school for the quality of the courses and exercises, for the outstanding teachers, for the small size classes, and for activities out of school (every Wednesday). I spent about a month there and I really feel confident in my speaking and listening skills, what I was looking for. The staff was available and very kind as well.

The teachers are wonderful, I had a very good and pleasant experience, I really enjoyed being with them, they were good teachers while I was there. I went there with a non-high level, I was shy, I was afraid to talk to people for fear of making mistakes and mispronouncing myself!! I learn a lot from them, they are wonderful people. And I advise you to try. they are nice and friendly, people who don’t judge the students’ mistakes but help them to improve. thank you 😊 for everything you did for me. I had a good experience, and I hope one day we can meet again. Thank you very much, I wish you success and may God continue to bless you.

Avenue English was the best place where I could learn english. The experience was absolutely fantastic, I learnt a lot. When I arrived there, I could not even speak properly, but after that experience a lot of things changed, Now I am able to speak, write, read, listen and understand very well. The teachers are wonderful, I learnt a lot from them, they are very capable and patient. Being with people from different countries was amazing, I learnt about different cultures and helped a lot praticing my english, because was only way to communicate. If you are not sure about which school go to, I absoltely recommed you the Avenue English. Thank you Avenue English for the experience.

A good number of people that I do business with have studied English at this school, and their proficiency has gone from 0 to 90 in an amazingly short period of time. I know for a fact that they all highly recommend the school, thus I have recommended the school to several others, and none have had a single bad word to say about the school. Doing business with these people, I would never risk referring them unless I was absolutely sure of the school. Having read the recent bad report by Hasan, I asked my friends what the problem was. It seems that certain male students, specifically from Saudi Arabia, have recently been coming to the school demonstrating exceptional disdain for, specifically, the female teachers, and generally, towards other students, and the learning process in general. They almost always arrive well over an hour late to class, which disrupts the entire class, as everyone has to wait for them to be brought up to date. (and sometimes simply skip entire days). However when reprimanded for this behavior, they are invariably rude to the teachers and display extreme arrogance, as well as a general air of entitlement. Often these same “students” have left other English language schools in Cape Town, and then join this school. One can only assume that the other schools didn’t put up with their disrespect either. I must add that I have heard that this is not the case with all students from Saudi Arabia. Most have apparently successfully passed, or are busy with, advanced English courses, and relate pleasantly with both the teachers and other students.

IH Cape Town is more than a school; it’s a place to learn English, it’s a home. From day one, they welcome you and integrate you into this wonderful family. The team is always ready to help you, from reception, through the teachers, administration, all the way to the staff in the residence and apartments. I will always remember the charm of the reception staff, always willing to assist, and Nicholas, the enthusiastic, motivated, and motivating teacher of this great language.
