    Program Overview

    Program Description:

    Students get the opportunity to work and live in Cape Town while gaining international work experience in Africa. Our placements are tailored made – and can last from 8 weeks to 12 months. The work is unpaid.
    At Good Hope Studies our priority is to provide lessons of a high standard and our aim is for our students to leave Cape Town feeling more confident communicating in English. To support these lessons, we provide accommodation and a social programme, and many of our students use these services to practice their English.

    The General English Courses are ideal for students who use English for everyday purposes. You can expect to:
  • Practice speaking by exchange ideas with people from other countries.
  • Learn plenty of new words and expressions.
  • Think about grammar, and practice speaking and writing more accurately.
  • Practice and develop all your skills in English (reading, listening, speaking and writing).
  • The morning lessons are based around a coursebook, and adapted to the class. Homework is given 3 to 4 times per week.
  • You have a choice of 16 and 20 morning lessons and you can combine them with a number of different afternoon options.
  • The afternoon lessons (Skills Focus) are focused mainly on developing speaking skills, but the lessons are usually based around a listening or reading text, and new vocabulary is often introduced to help the students to communicate more effectively. The topics depend on the interests of the class, but often include South African culture and history as well as current international issues. The lessons may include outings to local cultural sights and South African videos or songs.
