About Kurus English

LANGUAGE

At Kurus English our programmes and tuition encourage the language learner to become a clear, global communicator: fluent and confident in the communicative use of English for international purposes.

In addition to our classroom-based communication classes, Kurus English offers out-of-school, experiential communication classes. These are language-learning opportunities, promoted through the lens of culture and occasions for language discovery. These outdoor-classes are what we call, Language Excursions, during which your experienced teachers will become your ‘language guides` – assisting and guiding you in your interactions and in your communication.

CULTURE

Kurus English offers these language opportunities in order to provide further out-of-classroom language practice in the form of historical, social, business and cultural Language Excursions. Authentic and informative language texts are provided and taught in preparation prior to these excursions. Language Excursions enter into the very fabric of Cape Town and its society, providing you, not only with opportunities for learning English, but also expanding your cultural competence as an ever more important soft, social skill.

DISCOVERY

When we are relaxed, engaged and communicating authentically, this is when we learn best. Through language exploration, we meet new people, expand ourselves and experience new worlds. Culturally-diverse and historically-rich, Cape Town and its environs provide many such opportunities – and this is language discovery.

The twin supports of culture and discovery and their relationship to positive language-learning outcomes, combine to form a profoundly effective complement to our core language curriculum aim; that of best communicative competence in English as an international language.

Kurus English unites language, culture and discovery opportunities into a unique and powerful whole-language-learning experience; one which you will never forget!

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.
