      語学学校というとアメリカ、イギリス、カナダ、ニュージーランド、オーストラリアというイメージがありますが、カナダに留学した経験から、日本人の少ない南アフリカを選びました。 EIAはケープタウンから少し離れたハウトベイにあって、新設の学校です。人数の多いスクールでは一人一人に目を配れないところも少数のスクールなので先生が個別に目を配れるのが良い点だと思いました。 危ないと言われている南アフリカですが、この学校ではホームステイ先まで車で送ってくれるので一度も危ない事はなかったです。 ハウトベイはビーチがキレイで、自然も多く、環境が良く、語学の勉強以外でもかなり楽しい時間が過ごせました。

      The big difficulty in learning a new language, in my opinion, is linked to the often quoted use of "necessity". Based on this, I decided to invest in a learning language abroad immersion program. I chose South Africa and Cape Town in particular because of its culture, climate, nature and of course good value for money. Cape Town offers many english language school options, but I chose English in Africa Language School after careful research, because they have a good location and are situated near a beautiful beach in Hout Bay, surrounded in a great mountain valley. Both school and city, exceeded my expectations in general, I really improved my English! Fabiano Vieira - [email protected] - Brasil
