Graduation Armstrong


As we welcome new students every Monday, we also bid sad farewells to students most Fridays. It's bitter sweet as most of them say goodbye to new friends and fond memories, while looking forward to returning home or embarking on the next chapter in life. This gallery shows pictures of the students who were around for their graduation. Some have flights booked and cannot make it, while others choose not to be in the spotlight. If you would like to read about what some of our past (and present) students say about their time at ELC and in Cape Town, you can check out:Bernardo from Brazil: "I'm  Brazilian in Cape Town"Alessandra from Italy: "My language Experience of Cape Town"Ndaambe from Namibia: "Student Focus: Ndaambe from Namibia"Christian from DR Congo: "Why I Chose UCT English Language Centre: A Review"Mariana from Brazil: "My Cape Town Language Travel Experience" and "Mariana Costa is Loving Cape Town"Francesca from Italy: "An Italian Thank You from Francesca"Pam from The Netherlands: "Pam Augustijn's Goodbye Letter to Cape Town"Our students teach us everyday that you can achieve what you want if you work hard for it. We teach English at UCT ELC, and our jobs are only possible because of the decision of each and every student to trust us to help them achieve their dreams and goals with regards to learning English in Cape Town. We hope that we are achieving our goals! Thank you for choosing to do your English course with us at the UCT English Language Centre.

Teachers and Staff

The teachers and staff who teach for, run and operate the UCT English language Centre are a small, but growing, group of professional and dedicated individuals with experience in the TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) industry. We are a great team that enjoys working together and sharing knowledge and ideas, and while there is a clear organizational structure in the school, with Simon the Director and Juliette, the Director of Studies, the general atmosphere and dynamic in the school is one of integration and mutual respect.Fridays afternoons are spent in teacher's meeting where student needs, administrative issues, registers, course books and class material are discussed and planning for the upcoming week takes place. Very often, after the teacher's meetings are complete, CPDs (continuous profesisonal development) sessions are run by either Juliette, or a fellow ELC teacher. These sessions are to ensure that teachers remain at the forefront on developments in the profession and to share ideas and provide input for lessons. All our teachers and staff live in Cape Town but have all worked and/or taught abroad.
