School Location (Observatory)

Let’s Learn English is situated less than 500 metres from the centre of Observatory, where there are a range of popular restaurants, coffee bars, pubs and some very interesting little shops, also large supermarkets and anything else you need. Let’s Learn English is also conveniently located only 3 kilometres from the Cape Town City Centre, with easy access to the world-famous V&A Waterfront and many other local attractions.

Observatory (or Obs as it is affectionately known by locals) is like a small village, with perhaps the most interesting cross-section of people in the whole of Cape Town. Obs is very popular with local and international students as it is close to the University of Cape Town and the world-famous Groote Schuur Hospital. It is very well served by affordable public transport (buses, taxis and trains). Obs has a busy nightlife, and the many backpackers in the area also attract many young international visitors. It is the perfect location for an English language school.

My opinion about Let’s Learn English, an Institution located at Wesley Rd, Cape Town, is associated with a set of reasons which took me to attend the course offered by this Organization. I am a Lecturer at a University, in Maputo. I am also one of the acting responsible for the institutional management. Both as a lecturer and as a manager, English language, for me, is a tool for reading academic books and public relations.

Those are the reasons why I came to Let’s Learn English. In fact, my purpose was to deepen my knowledge in reading, listening, writing and talking, in English language. I am absolutely satisfied for having achieved my interests.

Let’s Learn English offers to its students the service of higher quality. Firstly, it allows them a rapid integration at environment of the Cape Town, organizing their reception at the Airport and helping them to locate the accommodation, in Cape Town. Secondly, the environment at Let’s Learn English is appropriate for learning. The teachers are very competent and the resources they make the learning process very interactive. Concerning the interactivity methodology of learning, I would like acknowledge the performance the teachers, demonstrated by Mr. Joshua and Miss Zinzi. Finally, Let’s Learning English has allowed me and colleagues to visit some places, e. g. Stellenbosch, as a complementary method of teaching and showing how Cape Town is beautiful city.

All in all, due to these achievements, I would like to express my sincere thanks too Let’s Learn English’s staff and my best wishes to this Organization.

Why I chose this school, the first reason was because Let’s Learn English produces quality and small classes and this is what I needed. Therefore I searched for a small school to let me have direct contact with the teachers because my English was very basic or almost nothing. My first purpose was to learn the English language faster. I am absolutely satisfied for having achieved my objective; I know I need more practice, and I’m sure I will continue. I can say so much about Let’s Learn English but I have few words to express how I felt at the school, I must say that it was the best decision I made, in my opinion, the school is of high quality and their teachers Mr. Joshua and Miss Zinzi are the best. Thank you so much Let’s Learn English’s my best wishes to school.

I have been studying English at LLE for 4 to 5 weeks, at 20 hours a week , during the morning.

School LLE

LLE is a very small school, with a personal approach. You get a warm welcome and every student is known by name. Directors and staff are very helpful and always willing to answer your questions. There were a maximum of 6 to 8 students in one class. Joshua, my teacher was good and if you wanted to, you could always ask him to tackle some specific topics in class. Although being small, the school has very good technological equipment : data projectors, digital whiteboards, laptops, PC’s, internet … Every student has free use of the language lab, where you can do additional exercises at your own level and pace. There are also some leisure activities : one week on Friday you watch a movie during class time, the other week the teachers organise a full day activity outside. Both kind of activities are enjoyable, interesting and offer opportunities to speak English with each other and the teacher.

Accomodation

The family I stayed with are really nice people. They are very easy going and try to make you feel comfortable at home. The landlord is very talkative – so you have a lot of opportunity to practice your English. You have a nice personal room : large bed, wardrobe, armchair, working table, wifi , no fan. The rest of the house is basic. It’s a small house, with only 3 rooms + bathroom and a small yard (not suitable for relaxing). You share the kitchen and the bathroom with the two owners. You have free use of the kitchen equipment and the washing machine.

There is a (very sweet) dog.

This is a letter of testimony for Let’s Learn English, I’ve study English with LLE for 2 weeks, I can’t say my English improve a lot in just 2 weeks but I would say they did give me some ideas of how to improve. The 2 weeks in LLE, we have a lot of activities, we had sushi night, climbed up and down table mountain and we’ll also have braai to go. Thank you for Mike, Ann, Joshua and Zinzi bringing me a very remarkable experience here in Cape Town.

I’ve been in a few schools but LLE is the most excellent. I like that the classes aren’t bit with a few students where everyone gets enough attention. The teachers are intelligent, friendly, helpful and amazing. They always care about the students and happy to help or answer any question. During my stay in school we have a very warm and harmonious celebrations between students and teachers. I’m really satisfied that I’ve choosed this school. It’s definitely worth learning English in this school and I would like to come back again.

I’ve spent almost three months in LLE school and it’s a decision that a will never regret. I was looking for a cheap and good english school and without a doubt LLE was the best option. Not only because of this but also, and most important, because from the very first day i felt like home. LLE is, above all, your home when you are so far away from your place. My teacher Ann… no words to describe her, one of those teachers that you can’t never forget and the rest of the staff always there to help and take care of you before you arrive, during the course and even after you’re gone!! Great experience and the best way to learn english!

When I came here I couldn’t speak well English. During this time I think I have improved a lot. I love their hospitality and the teachers were very kind and patient. I made friends and I think they will be forever. I will use English in my life, work and travel. I want to learn more and I will remember the lessons in the future. Thank you, Let’s Learn English School, for all this time and all the love you gave me.

My learning of English at LLE…was my first time away from my country, I expected this to be very hard. To my surprise I got accustomed easily, firstly because of the friendly atmosphere-I could express myself, be myself. I think that was the main thing that made me love this school. Secondly, the schedules of the school are perfect. I love the way of teaching because the teacher manages to make sure that everyone understand. I will never forget my teacher and Ann with her lovely sense of humor, the outings which the latter allowed me to visit and enjoy the city, and those friends I made. Finally, I would like to say thank you for all those wonderful moments.

LLE is the one of the best English schools I’ve ever been. I love traveling, and during my trips, usually take English lessons as part of my vacation. Last years, I studied in many different English schools all over the world and definitely can recommend LLE as one of the best according with his value for money. The teachers are really good and professional, as well as friendly and helpful. Thanks to them, I got 915 points on my last TOEIC exam. Thanks a million LLE.

I went to Cape Town with a goal to improve my skills in English and I’m sure that I had success because I had luck to choose the right school to help me. Mike and Ann, the owners, are very kind and friends. We feel as if we are at home all the time. The methodology is directed to individual learning but with group activities and our teacher Josh was very good. We had a lot of activities outside, not only for studying English , but to learn about history, culture, foods, good wines and so on.

Let’s Learn English is the best school that you can find in Cape Town! Teachers are very good, the school is very nice and the whole team along with Mike, make you feel like part of the family. What I most like about the school is that you can have a customized education tailored to your needs, as it is small groups, you can decide what you’re most interested to reinforce or learn.

You can also access the computers and programs that help you work listening comprehension … when you’re not training you in the different restaurants and bars of OBS, the best neighbourhood in Cape Town, where the school is placed and where you can meet people Super interesting while attending a jazz concert or a drink in a friendly bar.

That was a very good experience for me, I really feel that I improved my English and I knew wonderful people that I’ll always carry in my heart!

Let’s Learn English was just the perfect language school for me. From the very first moment I felt heartly welcome. The familial atmosphere made me feel at home as from the beginning. The teachers put on a programme for me which exactly fitted to my needs. Each and every student could work on his or her personal focuses, everybody got a personalised learning schedule. As I’m a principal myself in my country I know a lot about teaching and learning and I must say that at ‘Let’s Learn English’ they offer lessons in very high quality with a lot of interactive learning sequences, be it in the group as well as on the computer. It’s a small school-and this is exactly the advantage for the students: Ann and Josh succeed to support and teach according to the individual needs of each and every student. I can highly recommend ‘Let’s Learn English’ to everyone-no matter what age-who wants to learn the language in an atmosphere of friendship and in an international group. Cape Town at its best!

For me LLE is the best school for learning English in Cape Town. The teachers are awesome!!! The ambient is friendly. I hope this school keeps helping people like me. I miss the class, the ambient and Ann smile and Josh. Thanks Ann and Josh and Mike. One day would like to teach you French. After 2 months in LLE, the difference was amazing.

What can I say about LLE? Only good words! I highly recommend LLE because it is more than a school. The teachers, Ann, Josh and Brendan, are patience and qualified to teach everyone in a friendly and relax atmosphere. At the same time you are learning English you feel you are in your own home. They are like your family, always open to help you, not just in the academic way, also in a personal way. Thanks to them I could pass my TOEFL exam with the score I wanted. What else? Just to say that it is not a conventional academy, it is much better than all the English schools I’ve gone in my life (quite a few I have to say!). It is more than a school, so do not have any doubt to go to Let’s learn English at the same time you enjoy Cape Town!

Let’s Learn English in my opinion is the best English school of Cape Town. I could find a familiar atmosphere and lovely people who will always have great importance for me. At LLE it’s possible to learn English having good time. I advice everyone who wants to have an experience in South Africa to attend this school. You’ll learn English and will meet adorable people you never will forget.”
