The International English School Cape Town

The International English School Cape Town was opened in 1995 by Tania Copeland. It was the second English language school to be opened in the Western Cape. In this time our reputation as an excellent English school has grown. The International English School attracts students from all over the world. Our teachers are all qualified TEFL teachers and each teacher brings his or her professional skills, experience, and expertise to the classroom. Our school is situated in Twin Oaks Centre, Somerset West, Cape Town. The small town feel of Somerset West allows students to experience real life in English as the school is surrounded by coffee shops, internet cafes, retail and office spaces, hairdressers, dance schools, pubs, banks, the post office, restaurants, supermarkets, real estate offices, and all the usual town/city features within walking distance of our English school.

Learn English in a great environment

Somerset West, Cape Town, also has many cultural and sightseeing activities for students to get involved in, for example an active local theatre, the Playhouse Theatre, where amateur productions are staged throughout the year. Students who are interested in assisting in the community while attending an English school in Cape Town can do just that. Somerset West is on the western side of Cape Town, ten minutes drive from the long white beaches of False Bay, the yacht harbour of Gordon’s Bay, the Helderberg Nature Reserve, and the Winelands district. It is about half an hour’s drive from the Cape Town CBD and 20 minutes from Cape Town International Airport.

International English School Cape Town is here for you.

We offer a wide variety of courses for students who want to study in an English speaking faculty; general English skills and communication classes, business English courses, or fun holiday courses for tour groups. For teachers who want to teach English in non-native speaking countries we offer a TEFL course.
