LAL Language Centre Cape Town

Study English at LAL Cape Town, a school with a welcoming atmosphere and an enthusiastic team who are ready to make your language course a memorable experience. LAL Cape Town is part of the LAL Language Centers school chain. The school’s teaching methodology focuses on “language and leisure” – where students work both in and outside of the classroom to achieve results in their English speaking skills. Students are also able to take a Cambridge Exam and preparation course at LAL Cape Town. 

From the moment you arrive at LAL Cape Town you will be welcomed by the friendly team and be able to relax and enjoy the beautiful school facilities. The school is housed in a grand heritage building with modern classroom facilities. With its own swimming pool and shaded terraces, there is ample space where students can study or socialize outside of class.

Located in the relaxed, safe suburb of Sea Point, just moments from the beach, students will find plenty of services including shops and restaurants in close vicinity to the school. A trip to one of the famous beaches, Clifton or Camps Bay will take just 15 minutes from the school itself. Students will not only have plenty of time to see places nearby, but the school will also help them to organize activities and trips. The social program organized by the school includes sightseeing, cultural and nature-based activities. Activities include barbecues, safari trips, surfing lessons and even whale watching during some parts of the year.   

Most teachers at LAL Cape Town are equipped with a CELTA certificate. The school is accredited by the South African Youth Travel Confederation and EduSA (Education South Africa), two organizations which promote and encourage travel and English language education in South Africa.
