About the School


The SA Language Academy is a school that strives for excellence in everything we do. Our goal is for each student to have a life changing experience in South Africa, learning English in a relaxed and beneficial way, meeting friendly people who want to build lasting relationships with everyone while being surrounded by the beauty that is Cape Town.

We do this by ensuring that every area of your stay has been carefully planned so you can make the most of your time with us, whether it is for just a few weeks or even a few years. SALA is one of the first truly South African language centers in the country. Our services include:

  • English tuition in Small Groups or Individually:
    • This means our teachers are able to focus on the needs of each student as personal interaction is vital and maximum time is given to each student to practice the spoken language. 
  •  Unique Business English programmes:
    • SALA offers a number of different programmes written to train foreign business people to communicate effectively in their business dealings in the medium of English. [See Business English]
  • A variety of Social programmes: 
    • Since most of our students come to Cape Town to do language studies and also to experience our diverse culture and beautiful country; at SALA nobody leaves disappointed. Our social programmes give us the opportunity to show off everything about our country and we do it in style.
  • Full accommodation available: 
    • As well as visa assistance, business assistance and enrollment into local schools and universities. At SALA our specialist staff are available to make sure your every need is taken care of.
  •  Specially trained, qualified teachers: 
  • Our staff consists of a group of vibrant teachers and other support staff who enjoy teaching, meeting new people and making each student feel extra special.
