We are members of inlingua International, with headquarters in Switzerland and over 320 language schools in more than 35 countries. Founded in 1968, inlingua is a leader in language training worldwide. For over forty years, millions of people have benefitted from inlingua’s professional training, technology and expertise. inlingua Cape Town, opened in 1996 by Meryl van der Merwe and Jane Diesel, has continued the tradition and built up an excellent reputation for teaching, teacher-training, course design and study skills.
We have 18 classrooms, a student room and computer area in a modern loft building. You can progress quickly in a small class or 1-1, speak English in and out of the classroom and enjoy the friendly, professional environment and the exciting social programme. There is Wi-Fi throughout the centre, and quiet areas for work. Or, if you prefer, you can relax and chat in the student room or on the balcony.
The Social Programme Co-ordinator arranges outings and activities to encourage everyone to see our beautiful city and surrounding areas. Volleyball on the beach, a walk up Lion’s Head, a trip to the Winelands or to Cape Point, dinners out, evenings at the theatre or listening to jazz, drumming and cultural experiences are all planned. Themed visits are arranged on request – cooking, wine-tasting or photography, for example.
I feel I learned a lot and I’m happy with my progress because when I came to inlingua I couldn’t speak or understand English. Now after ten weeks I can enjoy having conversations in English.Jacob - Angola

inlingua Cape Town is located in a central and safe area called Green Point. The teachers are very patient and empathetic and see every student as an individual. Many activities are organised by inlingua, such as surfing lessons at Big Bay or drumming lessons at the school. All in all, I’m very happy to have chosen inlingua in the most wonderful city of the world.Monika - Switzerland

My time at inlingua was an amazing experience. I improved my English and I also matured as a person because in this school you don’t only learn how to write or speak English, you learn how to be a better person every day!Ludy - Angola
The time I spent in Cape Town was so memorable – thanks inlingua! I met many interesting people. Also, the language teachers made the lessons exciting and versatile. The good relationship with them went beyond the classroom. I will always remember this time.Michael - Switzerland
I spent two months in this school and it was incredible. I had teachers who became friends and showed me an interesting way to learn a new language. I could rely on all the inlingua staff – every time I asked for something they tried to help me. I made friends of different nationalities and I am still in contact with them today. My host mother was amazing and gave me all the support I needed and made me feel so welcome. I want to thank inlingua for the wonderful experience I had in Cape Town.Mariana - Brazil
