Bay Language Institute

Bay Language Institute

Family-owned and managed, Bay Language Institute is situated in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Small classes, a warm, welcoming environment, and experienced, dedicated teachers ensure that your learning experience is everything it should be.

While our first priority is to ensure that you achieve your language-learning goals, there is plenty to see and do in your leisure time. The beach is close by (for those lazy summer afternoons) and shops, restaurants and banks, surf, dive and golf schools are just ten to twenty-five minutes away – on foot or by bike. Our city and region will spoil you for choice – the world’s highest bungy, museums and art galleries, cultural encounters in remote rural villages, African wildlife, whale and dolphin-watching, or star-gazing, cheetah tracking & amazing views in the Karoo.

It’s all here – a welcoming environment, great teachers, adventure, beautiful beaches and nature – for a wonderfully different English language learning experience in Africa.
