Why go to South Africa to learn English

Do you want to study English abroad but haven't yet decided on your destination? Maybe South Africa is not on your list at the moment - but I assure you that it should be absolutely back! A land full of lush landscapes and incredible nature, with a complex history behind it that has left its mark on its architecture, food and languages ​​(there are 11 official ones!).

Why go to South Africa to learn English

It is a unique and exciting place. it's perfect for learning English. That's why you should go to South Africa to study English:

The "diversity" factor

It is very common to hear about students telling about their English courses in the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom. But South Africa has always remained a low profile option for learning English. Studying English in South Africa can meet all your needs: cities in which to have fun, excellent courses, fantastic landscapes and an enviable climate - with the added bonus of being a destination not much in demand.

The climate

Students from a warm climate will have no difficulty adapting to that of South Africa - and those coming from the snowy north will certainly appreciate the change! Studying in South Africa will not require a change of wardrobes with regard to jackets, boots and any winter accessory. And this makes all the pre-start processes much easier. (Don't forget your costume, I'll tell you why now!)

Beaches in abundance

No one will have to say about the wonderful beaches of South Africa. On the western cape you can admire the African penguins or simply watch the people passing by Boulders Beach and spend an afternoon between the white beaches and the crystal clear sea of ​​the four Clifton Beaches. If you want instead to devote yourself to birdwatching, see whales, dolphins and enjoy fantastic mountain landscapes, I suggest you go to Hawston Beach.

South African slang

"Now," "now now" and "just now". Um, when? (Let us know if you know the difference between the three expressions after completing your course!) South African slang has strong ties with Dutch, as it relates to other official languages ​​of the country. It is often eclectic, bizarre and sweetly literary. Think of the word "circles" to identify roundabouts on the street and "robots" for traffic lights. Other terms to add to your must list are braai (barbecue), boet, bra, bru, chommie, china and cuz (brother, friend, companion), ag man! (oh! Used to express shock, surprise, resignation or irritation), domkop (idiot), is it?(is this so ?, often used in everyday conversations), jol (a party), skinner (gossip) and lekker (tasty, good).

Cape Town

Located between Table Mountain and the ocean, Cape Town is really beautiful. Intensely cosmopolitan, full of great nightlife, fantastic food markets, plenty of day out - the multicultural influence of Cape Town with German, Indonesian, British, French and Dutch roots is palpable. Students in the city are (understandably!) Fascinated by its fusion of modern, Victorian and Edwardian architecture; clothing markets; street food; local scattered around the city and peculiar neighborhoods - all on a background of mountains and cratered by a marvelous coastline.

Extreme sports

It is not the only dive: South Africa is the land of the shark swim in a cage, an activity that certainly is not suitable for the faint of heart and that works exactly like images. (Do you want to try it? Go to Gansbaai on the western tip, also known as the White Shark world capital). Other water sports worth trying are wind boarding, kiteboarding, parasailing and sea kayaking. While those who prefer extreme sports at high latitudes can try bungee jumping from one of the highest bridges in the world, the Bloukrand Bridge with a height of 216 meters.

Good value for money

Rents, food and transport prices are generally accessible in South Africa compared to other English-speaking countries, including the southern hemisphere neighbors: Asutralia and New Zealand. This means your budget will take you away - and will this make your bank account happier (and maybe it will convince you to stay longer?)

Enjoy a surfing safari ...

More experienced surfers head to Eland's Bay, about 3 hours away from Cape Town, or to Dungeons; accessible only by sea, they are among the best places to surf in the world. Surfers of all levels will find perfect waves in Jeffrey's Bay, Durban, and Muizenberg.

... or a traditional one!

"South Africa" ​​and "safari" are practically synonyms and Kgalagadi and Kruger are the best choices in the country. Kgalagadi is less densely populated by wild animals, although it is a fantastic place to admire large cats and predatory birds. Kruger is fantastic for seeing the Big Five (lion, leopard, rhino, bison and elephant), and also offers sightings of crocodiles and hippopotamuses and the lesser known oritterotopes, opossums, pangolins, aardvarks, hushbabies, pangolins, hyenas and jackals.
