The Work Adventure Programme allows you to explore South Africa while sharing your skills and expertise in much needed developing communities. If you want to be part of a social project while travelling and improving your English, this is an amazing option for you.
You will not only have the opportunity of immersing yourself in South African local culture but also be able to explore different areas of the country, including some of the most cosmopolitan spaces, like the city of Cape Town.
The English courses and teachers were funny. All staff is very kind, smiled and prepared to help. I was satisfied and felt like at home. The food in lunch was really tasty.
The school system is great with the different levels and the online Advantage page where you can practice. My teacher was very friendly and taught in a good way.
One weekend, I was with some friends of school at the beach in Miami. It was very beautiful with the nearly white sand.
It could be in Portuguese, but I preferred to challenge myself and write my testimonial in English. I had Intensive English and it was four lovely weeks in LAL School. It was really good for me to interact with teachers and other schoolmates. My host mother, Bev and her mom were the best people that I met in Cape Town. I really felt at home. I will miss our conversation. Bev was a really mother for me . I have to say thanks for that.
My favourite place in Cape Town is Lion’s Head where I can walk from the school. I’ve been there several times for the sunrise and sunset, which have, incidentally, been some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets in my life.
I feel ready to take and pass my TOEFL test thanks to four weeks of intensive work. Our teachers, made sure that we knew everything about the TOEFL test and gave us specific feedback on our progress and proficiency.
I had a very good time with LAL here in Ft. Lauderdale. I improved my English, I had friendly classmates and a very nice host family. The lessons were very effective. We had enough opportunities for speaking and discussed many interesting topics. Ft. Lauderdale is a very nice place for learning English and I will definitely recommend it! My host family gave me a good home for this time and I’m very glad that I decided to choose this option. It was easy for me to integrate and the support of my family was really helpful. So, I will definitely come again, but then I will stay for longer. Two weeks are too short. Thank you for the nice time here with you!
