TESTIMONIALS​

Hear from some happy 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.

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.

I personally think that the ELC is one of the best Schools to learn English. There, you just do not only improve your English but also your personality as a person and student. I am loving my stay in the ELC, the classmates they are full of surprises, because most of them are from different countries and we can share lots of experience with each other.If you are a foreigner and want to learn English, I recommends you to joy in ELC, you will thank me later.

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.

How could I not love this school? Everything was beyond imagination. The staff were all friendly and the teachers were all great. The activity program after class with Michael was also the best. Especially the PSP class was a good time for students who want to improve their English skills. I highly recommend IH Cape Town School. If you want to make your life a little more special, go to IH Cape Town! I hope to go back to IH cape town school.😻

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.

I spent 2 months in International House Cape Town and It was a amazing experience to learn in this school. The teachers and all the team are very competent and the atmosphere is awesome. Every weeks they organise some activities, it’s just impossible to stay alone, easy way to meet new people from all over the world. The school is also very well placed, close to shops, restaurant and also close to the sea. I really recommend it.
