Host Family / Homestay Accommodation


Homestay accommodation is the best way to experience South African life, the culture and to learn English outside of the els classes which will help you to learn English fast.

This immersive family experience will result in a rich cultural language exchange. You will get to know a South African family of native English speakers and explore Cape Town and South Africa from a more intimate point of view. Many of these exchanges often lead to lasting friendships as well as a better understanding of Cape Town, South Africa and the English language.

Our English language immersion classes combined with Cape Town homestay accommodation will ensure that your stay in the Mother City becomes more than a simple language course. The ELS Cape Town families who offer homestay in the city of Cape Town are of a high quality and carefully selected by the school. They range from married couples to single person establishments, with or without children or pets. The houses are clean and warm and the majority of families are less than 20 minutes walking distance from the school.

Having hosted ELS students for many years, our homestay families are more than able to assist you with your homework, fun activities outside those organised by the school and helping you find your way around the beautiful city of Cape Town.A homestay accommodation will also give you the opportunity to share your culture and traditions with your host family… in English! This is truly appreciated by ELS hosts, who say that "every student was an experience of fun and laughter..."
