About Good Hope Studies

Logo from institution

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.

Good Hope Studies is an IALC and EAQUALS member, a CELTA teacher training centre, teaches English as a foreign language and we also run our own extensive volunteer programme.

Good Hope Studies offers a unique learning experience that is highly efficient, fun and affordable. You can expect stylish premises in safe and convenient locations where you can study in a welcoming and quiet environment.

Cape Town's unique melting-pot of African and European influences means that anyone studying here is guaranteed a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

English Courses

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.

If you are studying at our language school in Newlands, our Campus Accommodation, situated right next to the school building, is an ideal accommodation option.

If you prefer to be more independent, then our Student Residence is the option for you.

If you are a long term student, you may want to stay at our Student House, as it offers a very good value for money.

Bed & Breakfasts are more expensive, but they also offer a higher degree of comfort. There are also several hotels within walking distance of our schools.

Good Hope Studies Social Club

Besides the actual language course and the accommodation, the activity programme is the third component of making your trip memorable. It offers you not only the opportunity to see the highlights of Cape Town and the surrounding areas but also a chance to get to know your fellow students socially. Most importantly, however, it is a great opportunity to practice your newly-acquired language skills.
