Our Courses

Our most popular course is General English and this is ideal for you if you who want to raise your overall level of English. We also offer Business English and English for Specific Purpose (ESP). These two courses concentrate on the language needed in a corporate environment and on the language needed in specific industries, respectively. For those who want to study or work in English speaking countries, we offer a variety of British Council and Cambridge exam preparation courses.

Cape Town is a fantastic city that offers so many wonderful experiences for you as a student. In order to take full advantage of what the city can give, we have special programmes whereby you study English in the morning and then explore the city in the afternoon. These group packages include tuition, accommodation and excursions and are tailor-made. This type of programme best suits young learners who have limited time and who need to be supervised.

In keeping with the exponential development of technology, we offer ‘Blended Learning’ at OEA. In our state-of-the-art computer lab, students have the opportunity to take part in online learning for one session a week. This coupled with face-to-face tuition in the classroom, gives a student a comprehensive English-learning experience.
