Happy Students 🙂

Since we opened in 2015, ELC has welcomed thousands of students from over 100 countries. Here's what some of them had to say about their experience.

Yahya, Saudi Arabia

I chose ELC because it is associated with the University of Cape Town. I was looking for a place that would take my goals seriously and I am very happy to be here. The teachers are excellent and the lessons are interactive. I’ve been here for 3 months and I can already see progress in my learning.




Alvaro, Mozambique

Thank you to ELC and all the people I met in the school. Meeting people from different countries and backgrounds is great for communication, by engaging with them, I was not only able to learn about their cultures but also practise my English.




Francine, Brazil

My experience at UCT ELC was more than just learning English! Not only did I reach my language goals but I also gained invaluable life experience. It is definitely the best choice I have made so far. The teachers are lovely and professional and I made friends from all around the world. I love this school so much that I've been back three times!


Pam, Netherlands

All the teachers are highly educated, open minded and are teaching in an inspiring way. The management team is flexible and supportive and helped me with my visa. I also learned more of the culture in South Africa through the combination of the school trips.


Luiz, Mexico

My experience at ELC was amazing! I had the opportunity to make friends from all the world and improve my English at the same time.


Sarah, Gabon

I spent a total of 9 months at the school and did my IELTS preparation with them. The learning environment was warm and focussed and I was able to score a band 7 in my exam. This is definitely the place to do your IELTS preparation.

Chise, Japan

This 4 weeks were really great. I could enjoy very much. Teachers taught me English from a variety of angles. It was very helpful. If there is a next time, I want to learn English at this school. Thank you so much!



Beyza, Turkey

In my first week I was so shy but I found all teachers so friendly and funny. When I got used to school and Cape Town, everything seemed to me more beautiful and exciting and also I benefited my lessons more.


Abdulatiff, Bangladesh

It's my second time at this school and I am so happy with the service. They have helped me reach my goal and I recommend this school to anyone who is serious about learning. The teachers are patient and the way to teach is communicative and clear. Thank you.
