Thanks for your patience..
Was a pleasure to be a student again.
In this week’s Language Excursion themed “Environment” we visited Rondevlei a nature conservation reserve in the Cape Flats and additional, Clinton, a fire ranger for the Table Mountain National Park. At the moment we are having the most dangerous season regarding fires in Cape Town and it was very interesting to see all the fire fighting equipment. For a more detailed description of the excursions, please click here!
Well! First congratulation for all!
This is my first visit and I have many difficulties when I arrived, but later that was ok.
For me this moment is very important in my life. To know new people, new teachers, to study now for 1 month is not easy. I liked this experience because I had a dream to come in South Africa a long time ago. And now, I made a mix: study, speak, knowledge, friends, job and experiences.
Thanks for the help and teaching me English and a new opportunity to open new ways for me.
I liked cooking “Brigiadeiro” for all. That was great! Good times in the kitchen at Kurus.
Sorry, my English, but I am a pre-intermediate!
Kisses for my new friends, Brazilian girls, and to teacher Gavin for his preparation and attention, special for me all the time.
In addition to our last “Belief System” Language Excursion, (more info here!) we added a visit to Dumi and the Rastafarian Community in Marcus Garvey, in Philippi. In addition to our visit to an Imam, focusing on Islam and a Sangoma, focusing on ancestor worship, we got to know more about the Rastafarian religion.
In the video below you see Dumi answering questions our students had about the Rastafarian Culture.
Please have a look at the published article here. Unfortunately, only in German…
Welcome to Kurus English and thank you very much for your support!
Janne is doing a 5 months internship with us and she will focus on marketing and communications.
It is the second time that we have run the Language Excursions with the theme Art, Dance and Expression. As with the first time, we took part in a dance workshop and we had an art workshop with John Bauer. Please follow the link for more details about our “first time”!
Instead of the drum session, however, we visited Mac McKenzie in his home in Bridgetown. We heard more about the traditions of the Cape Town Minstrel Carnival or Coon Carnival or simply Kaapse Klopse. We played the traditional instruments, the gummie drum and the tambourine. The carnival in Cape Town has its roots back to the times of slavery where slaves had their only “free day” on the second of January (Tweede Nuwe Jaar). For more info please click here!
Watch our video of the dance workshop with Celeste Botha, where she explains about her passion for dance, and where this passion began.
Here are a few pictures from this years 101st Carnival in Cape Town on the 3rd of January, taken from our school!
Kurus English claims in its concept description “…to embrace a socio-economic business model”. Besides living an ethical business approach and our Language Excursions which provide business opportunities for various people Kurus English, in addition, wants to support social projects in Cape Town and South Africa. Being a fresh and young English language school, we need to build up our support step by step. In this category you can find more information about the social projects we support. Your comments are always welcome and much appreciated!
We wish you all a Happy New Year and only the best for 2009!
Kurus English re-opened its doors on the 5th of January 2009!
