The coursebook is supplemented with additional material, either adapted from published material, developed by the school, or designed by the teacher for a particular lesson. This allows teachers to cater more specifically to the needs and interests of the students. It also allows teachers to draw on the South African context, often bringing South African culture and history into the classroom.
At Good Hope Studies our priority is to provide lessons of a high standard and our aim is for students to leave Cape Town feeling more confident communicating in English.
The lessons are geared towards the needs and interest of the students in each class. There is usually a mix of the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and of language systems (grammar and vocabulary), with a strong focus on communication and real-life-tasks.
Social and Cultural Activities
The Good Hope Studies Social Club:
Besides the actual language course and the accommodation, the activity programme is the third component of making your trip memorable. It offers you not only the opportunity to see the highlights of Cape Town and the surrounding areas but also a chance to get to know your fellow students socially. Most importantly, however, it is a great opportunity to practice your newly-acquired language skills.
