Learn English in Africa

We cater for clients planning a learning vacation to improve their conversational English and knowledge of African cultures.

There is an emphasis on fluency and use of English for persons in travel and tourism, academia and business as well as for trainee pilots attending South African flight schools. Please note that we do not offer English for beginners.

All students must have a basic background in English grammar. You will be able to improve your accent and vocabulary. The South African English accent is easy to understand and used world wide on CNN.

Spend part of each morning, Monday to Friday, learning Grammar and Idioms and the other part learning pronunciation, conversation and listening.
