Good Hope Studies, established in 1995, is an internationally accredited private English language school with two centres in great locations. Students may choose between the vibrant, energetic city centre campus, which is at the heart of all the best that Cape Town has to offer, or the upmarket residential area of Newlands, close to the University of Cape Town.

Cape Town's unique melting-pot of African and European influences means that anyone studying here is guaranteed a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
At Good Hope Studies our priority is to provide lessons of a high standard and our aim is for our clients to leave Cape Town feeling more confident communicating in English. To support these lessons, we provide accommodation and a social programme, and many of our clients use these services to practice their English.
Most of our teachers are permanently employed and have CELTA or Delta teaching qualifications from Cambridge ESOL. The majority of our teachers have many years of experience teaching a range of nationalities and levels and they know how to make learning not only fun, but also highly effective.
