Learning and fun!!!

It is quite dificult to find the balance between learning and fun. However, in my experience in Kurus English one could say they really have created that balance. It was very interesting to see how the language excursions work - integrating the language with the culture and the reality of the country. It was a great learning experience and also different. Kurus English has a very profesional adminstrative team and a highly qualified teachers team who make all that possible.

It was a great time!

The English school was very interesting in terms of the excursions in both weeks. We learned a lot about the culture and the food in South Africa which made the trip so manifold.
I totaly recommend this English school and if I had the chance to do it again, I would definitely do it again!

Cape Town -for me- A Cape of good memories

When I went to Cape Town I had a couple of exceptions how it should be.
And Kurus English exceeded all of them.
I went there to learn something about the culture, the people who living there ,Traditions and so on and not at least to improve my English.
In Kurus English we learned English while we having fun either with the teachers or other members of Kurus English, the people we visited on our excursions and the guys from coffee beans routes.
So it was very easy to improve our English in such a nice atmosphere and in such a nice country.
Also the language excursions in the afternoons were very helpful to learn to speak English and to understood the different kind of meanings a sentence can have in the right way.
At leaste i just can say thank you to Kurus English for helping to get self-confidence by speaking English !!

2 wonderfull weeks!!!

The concept of Kurus English is fantastic.
This 2 weeks with lessions at the morning and daily excursions to different people and places provide an ideal blend of theory and practice.
The activities around the classroom made the 2 weeks to an unforgetable time of my life.

Thanks to the whole Kurus English team for this wonderful 2 weeks. It was not the last time I visited you!

Lovely Greatings from Germany

Great time in Cape Town! :)

Kurus English offered our group of 12 people an excellent time in Cape Town.

Additionally to great "indoor classes" where we dealed with grammar, skills and of course a lot of talking, they offered the opportunity to do language excursions, which means we could get in touch with a lot of South African people and we also saw almost "every side" of Cape Town. :)

The team was great, very welcoming and we could always come to them:)

So I definitely will recommend this school! And thank you, Kurus English, for this wonderful time!

Best quality and choise ever...

I can highly recommend Kurus English to everyone who is looking for a professional and high standard school. The teachers and everyone who is working for Kurus are just great! After 8 weeks my English is well advanced. The language excursions, gave me the opportunity to discover the culture and history of this beautiful city. I'm more than grateful for this experience and I'm coming back for sure! All the best and lots of success to the lovely Kurus-Family!

A week spent with Kurus and it is already finished... I have spent a crazy week with a group of German Girls and a fantastic team of teachers. I felt like in a family here.

I improved my English a lot but I still work to correct my french accent, so... I'll be back ^^

Thanks for all Diana, Angie, Jess, Gavin, Johannes and Iain.

Time of my Life

I spend two weeks in Cape Town and I have to say, that two weeks aren't enough to see everything. Before I came to Cape Town, I hated English as a subject in school, but when I visited the Kurus-English-school in Cape Town, this Feeling changed completly. I loved to speak and to talk in English. The teachers are very friendly and supported me to improve my English. The lessons are very interesting and the the school is very well organised! The language excursions gave opportunities to talk to native speakers, which helped me a lot to understand cultural and historical aspects of South Africa better. Thank you: Kurus English for this fantastic and awesome time in Cape Town. Hope, that I have the chance to come back! I really enjoyed the best time of my life in Cape Town! Thank You!

9 weeks at Kurus English

My experience at Kurus has been very fruitful considering my initial expectations. The quality of the teachers is high, the school is reliable. I stayed at the school 9 weeks and I've been able to improve my English in a very conducive learning environment thanks to the Kurus Team. The language excursions are a great complement to the language sessions themselves. If you're looking for a school to learn English in Cape Town, think about Kurus English!

2 weeks in Cape Town / at Kurus English

I highly recommend this language school! There are a lot of reasons, e.g. the teachers who really show their interest in helping and improving the students, which I really appreciate. And, which is also an important point - Kurus English does not only do English lessons inside but also "lessons" outside the classroom. We did a lot of amazing excursions where we were able to get to know the culture, the history and the people living here - and, of course - use the language.
I definitely would come back here and also recommend it to my friends.
Thank you for all these wonderful experiences!
