The City

IH Cape Town is perfectly located in the heart of the City Centre, offering students the unique opportunity to explore the amazing tourist attractions, socialise with fellow students and experience the local culture.

The school is in close proximity to many shops, restaurants, supermarket, bars and everything else one could need and want on a daily basis. The famous Sea Point promenade which runs all the way to Mouille Point, close to the Waterfront, is only a 20 minute walk away. All of Cape Town’s great attractions e.g. the Waterfront, the City Centre, Table Mountain, Lion’s Head, Bo Kaap and Camps Bay, just to name a few, are only a short bus ride away.

IH Cape Town is proud to offer the highly recommended Cambridge CELTA course. If you want a professional, internationally recognised qualification in English Language Teaching to adults, this is the course for you. It is a practical, work-related qualification aimed at graduates or other suitably qualified applicants who have little or no previous teaching experience.

CELTA is one of the most widely-recognised and highly respected qualifications for English language teaching. It is awarded by Cambridge ESOL through the University of Cambridge, which ensure quality and high standards. Its international reputation also increases opportunities to teach overseas. CELTA is the original teacher training course for English Language teachers, and is based on the original International House Certificate which was initially run in London in 1962. Not only will you get to experience all the benefits of the Cambridge CELTA course, but our trainers will bring their wealth of teaching and training experience along to enrich your overall learning journey.
