The LAL Language School in Cape Town, the capital of the former British culture, hosts an English camp for students. The city is known for its clean beaches and the unusual shape of Table Mountain. The center is located in the resort area of Sea Point, close to beaches, cafes and stores.

There is a library, a student kitchen, a lounge with a drinks machine, and a bookstore for the kids. The center has a swimming pool, playgrounds, a large garden, and a barbecue area. After classes students can take walks around town, visit the bird park and trampoline center, and go sledding. There is also an excursion to the Aquarium of the Two Oceans, where 300 representatives of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans are collected. On the weekend, children will go to a nature reserve, the meeting place of the two oceans - the Cape of Good Hope and Boulder's Beach, where a colony of penguins lives. In the evenings, students play the djembe, barbecue, and ice skating (yes, yes, in the summer). 

LAL is the only language center in Cape Town that offers tuition and housing in one place. The rooms are four-bedded and they are cleaned five times a week. Meals are served three times a day. Laundromats, cafes, a bank, pharmacies and the waterfront are all within walking distance.
