Welcome to the Language Teaching Centre

Because we are familiar with the challenges of acquiring a new language, LTC makes every effort to welcome students to an environment that will nurture their learning process and draw their best efforts.
The Language Teaching Centre not only focuses on language training but also introduces students to the respective cultures of the languages they are taught. Many of our students are preparing for life in a foreign country and we feel it is vital to help them adjust to the customs of these new challenges.

The school is very wonderful, the teachers are good and the housing with the family is bad because the family is not interacting with me. I want a family who speak to me to learn English and thank you.Show details » Read more...
I personally had a small class with very nice students. I learnd a lot of English in a short time and the conversation lesson in the afternoon gave me more confindence to speak English. The location of the school is a hot spot in Cape Town as well, very nice to be in this area. Over the breaks you can go upstairs to the 15th floor and you can have such a nice view. All facilities are given. Perfekt to stay. You also have a lot of activities in the school which you can make with your teachers. In total I just can reccomend the school.
All the teachers and the persons who belong to LTC are very kind and very very helpful. I felt always good there and they took care of me all the time. Many thanks for that !!
Studying at Language Teaching Centre Cape Town has been a great experience.
First of all, I really liked the location of the school that is in the city center and very accessible and close to places to eat. Also, I liked the facilities, teachers and all the staff. With regards to the classes I really like the TOEFL classes, specially, because it was a private class and the teacher was very good. Also, I really enjoyed the conversation classes, especially when we talked about different cultures and when we talk about African culture. I could see that all the students really liked this subject. However, I did not like the business class. For me the business class was something that I could skip, because it was not so interesting as cultural classes.
Another important topic is the interaction among the students and the multicultural environment.
In general, I can rate LTC as a very good English school and I recommend it.
First of all, I liked the teachers very much, they were so kind, humble and funny. I mean, they could teach difficult things in a simple way. They were wonderful! About my home stay, it was a magnificent home where I'd like to stay again. So, I really liked the city in Cape Town and I'll be back soon! It was a wonderful place to take vacation!Show details » Read more...

I really enjoyed the language school at Cape Town.
At school there was always a very comfortable feeling and support each time.
The class itself was a good mix of grammar, new vocabulary and free discussions. For me personally a quite good package.
The trips on Fridays always made a lot of fun and we had the possibility to see a lot of landscape and culture. Further on during this trip we were able to meet the students from the other classes.
During this time I met a lot of nice people from different countries and with some of them I still have a good contact.
For example this year during the summer I met a girlfriend in Switzerland.
All the time at Africa I never had to be alone as I already met at the first day a lot of nice and friendly people.
Additionally the offers for free time at Cape Town and near region were quite amazing so that there are opportunities for everyone.
I´d used to enjoy a lot and to visit a lot of places. The most awesome memory was to see a whale mother with her kids on which I could follow on from the beach.
The offer to charter a horse near Cape Town was something I used more often to ride on the long white beach through the near water.
Further on I visited or enjoyed
-Cape of Good hope
- Table Mountain
- picnic on Lions Hill
- a lot of time at the beach
The accommodation at the host family is absolutely recommendable as the mother and the rest of the family always were very friendly and always helped me with all questions I had.
The cooking was fantastic and each day I got a good meal and breakfast.
I was integrated in the family circle and felt very comfortable.
Thanks a lot again to Asma!!
