About the school

Kurus is a word in the Nama language which in English means “creation“ and  “things made by skill or intelligence; out of nothing”. This is exactly what’s happening when you learn a new language and take on the challenge of doing this in a different country. What a beautiful name for a language school that lies in one of the most beautiful places on Earth….Cape Town.

Surrounded by Signal Hill and the famous Table Mountain and within walking distance of the sea, this boutique language school has everything you need for your studies. They have small classes for great interaction with your teacher, and provide exciting excursions that will enable you to put your new language skills into use. There is also a great range of accommodation options, where you can practice English with a local host family or with students from all around the World.

If you want to learn or develop your English language skills in a warm and friendly environment, Kurus English is the school to go to in Cape Town. The Kurus English team will always be there for you and will make your stay a life experience you will never forget.
