Recommended for students who need to use English at work or in a business context. An intermediate level or above is required. Elementary and pre-intermediate students who need English for the workplace are advised to book private lessons.

IELTS and TOEFL courses
Widely recognised by universities and employers in English-speaking countries. These exams are required for emigration to many English-speaking countries. Students can choose to do the Academic English or the General English module.

We offer B2 First, C1 Advanced and C2 Proficiency exam courses. Cambridge exams are recognised worldwide and are widely accepted by educational institutions, businesses and government departments as proof of a certain level of English.

Private lessons
Suitable for people who need to improve as quickly as possible, people who wish to focus on specific areas, and people who learn best in a one-to-one environment.

CELTA and Delta training
These courses are internationally the most widely recognised qualifications in the field of English language teaching. They are very intensive courses with a strong practical component. A solid grounding is provided in teaching skills and techniques.


Homestays are our most popular form of accommodation. Staying with one of our friendly host families gives students a unique insight into the South African lifestyle.

Students who prefer to be more independent can choose between single and double rooms in either of our three beautifully decorated residences, all managed and run by Good Hope Studies.

At our Newlands Campus, students can live and study on the same property as the residence is situated right next to the school.
