Kurus English is an extraordinary language school situated in Cape Town, South Africa.
We offer highest quality English tuition, conducted in small groups and, in addition, cultural, social and historical Language Excursions, which extend deep into the fascinating and wonderful cultural diversity that is surely Cape Town’s soul.

Our school is situated in one of the most beautiful areas, right in the centre of Cape Town. Bright and colourful rooms with modern equipment characterise the friendly and informal atmosphere of our small, private school.
The Academic Staff comprise qualified language teachers who are all native speakers and who distinguish themselves by their long-term experience and refined intuition regarding our students' individual language challenges.

The language foundations are laid in class – and our students are guided to improve their competence through authentic, real-life applications, including experiencing our unique Language Excursions. Language Excursions offer far more than tourist excursions and constitute the heart of Kurus English besides the ever important theoretical classes: Due to our unique network, students are immersed in diverse cultures of Cape Town, providing opportunities to converse with the fascinating people of the city. Should the conversation ever begin to flag, our teachers will be at our students' side to assist.

Themes change weekly, defining the language learning concept with regards to content and ensuring exciting personal encounters.

The teachers were very helpful and friendly, the language experiences / excursions were interessting and I felt perfect all the time.
I think it's one of the best schools in Cape Town and I'll recommend the school all the time.
Kind regards from Hamburg, Germany

Great learn experience!!!

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.

Unforgettable

I took part in a two weeks course in April 2013. It was just great. Everybody did a great job. I learned much and had lots of fun. The excursions gave a great and vivid impression of Cape Town, and I met a lot of interesting people. I would never have seen all this on my own. I especially enjoyed the excursions dealing with food and cuisine and even cooked boboti several times at home.

Shortly: I had a phantastic time at Kurus and in Cape Town which left marks on me. A warm "Thank you" to all staff at Kurus. I can and will recommend your school!

All the best from Germany.
