We guarantee teaching that meets demanding standards, and mobilize competent and qualified teachers. Our teachers are selected for their dynamism and their personality: the lessons are both fun and very complete. You will not only study English: you will rub shoulders with students from all over the world and have unforgettable experiences.
Like all of our programs for a gap year in English with animals, this project in South Africa allows you to benefit from professional experience while having a positive and lasting impact on the region's ecosystems.

English lessons followed by a volunteer project

The English gap year allows students to choose from a wide range of volunteer projects, as they are more flexible in terms of destination: they can effectively choose to stay in Cape Town to participate in a community or educational project, or choose another destination in South Africa. Available projects: animal volunteering in Kruger Park, environmental projects, education projects, etc.

For all animal and environmental projects, please note that an additional cost will be applied. Please contact us to receive a detailed quote based on the desired project.

The program includes a minimum of 4 weeks of English classes, followed by a minimum of 2 weeks of volunteer work in the field with our partner NGO.
The assignment depends on the skills and profile of the participants. A telephone interview and a registration file (CV and motivation letter) will determine the placement of the volunteers on educational projects ranging from childcare to the organisation of extracurricular activities and tutoring / assistance in schools for those with the most training.
This gap year course in English is an opportunity for you to combine a language stay and a humanitarian mission. If you are more interested in an internship, find here all our internships in Cape Town.
