Bruna on her last day at ELC with her UCT Certificate

Student Stories | Bruna from Brazil

Bruna, who came to Cape Town, with her husband, Guilherme, tells us about her amazing visit to Cape Town and ELC. Here’s a sneak peek: “What has been your best memory in Cape Town so far? (a day, or an event, or a weekend…?) I did different things in Cape Town during that time that I have never done before like jumping from the bridge in a bungy jump, hiking Lions Head, kayaking on a river and many others. But my new friends are the best part of that time. Friends from different countries and different cultures. I hope to see them again and who knows visit their countries.” It’s always about the people!

Diouf in the ELC residence

Student Stories | Diouf from Senegal

The student stories series provides real feedback, from real students – unedited and authentic! Diouf, an Advanced student, here at ELC gave us a few tips, about his time here in Cape Town and ELC. A sneak peak: What is the best thing about Cape Town? “To me, the best thing about Cape Town is its diversity. You get to learn a lot from people from all walks of life, and most importantly, as a learner of English, you are exposed to 3 different accents. At least. Which is not a bad thing.”
