We pride ourselves in our teachers - as it is they who make a lesson successful.

We opened our doors in 1995, making us one of the founding members of the language school industry in South Africa. Our consistency in high quality training sets the standard for all other schools in our country. We are situated in Green Point, one of the trendiest and upmarket areas of Cape Town. Attractions like the city centre, the world famous V&A Waterfront and scenic beaches are all within walking distance.

Cape Studies is perfect for students and tourists hoping to do a bit of sightseeing, outside of school hours. The school building is a beautiful villa with classrooms opening up to a garden courtyard and pool area. A maximum of 8 students per class gives a personalised feeling. Classrooms are fitted with interactive electronic white boards and the school has 24 hour Wi-Fi.
