Bay Language Institute

Bay Language Institute

Bay Language Institute

Bay Language Institute is situated on the shores of the Indian Ocean in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Our intimate classes, warm and welcoming environment, and experienced, caring teachers ensure that you derive maximum benefit from your learning experience.

We know that you’re here to improve your language skills; however, learning without having some fun and exploring what’s on offer just isn’t the same. There is so much to see and do in your leisure time: beautiful sandy beaches close by (for those lazy summer afternoons), shops and restaurants around the corner, and surf, dive and golf schools just ten to twenty-five minutes away on foot. 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 & fossil-hunting 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.
