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.


Accommodation is an important part of your stay in a foreign country. At Good Hope Studies we offer a range of accommodation to meet your needs. Our accommodation officer knows the accommodation providers in person and inspects them regularly. The accommodation officer will also help you to make the right choices and is available during your stay to attend to your queries. 

Generally, we recommend staying with a host-family as this forms an important part of your language learning experience. For more comfort, we also offer Homestay-Plus.
