Hi Kurus and Coffeebean people
I enjoyed every moment at your school inside and outside.
* good professional teaching during the mornings
* break time with free coffee and tea. (thanks for refilling and tidying up Diana and Caroline)
* excursions in the afternoon to Langa, to Woodstock, to District 6, to Bo Kaap, to Constantia, to Greenpoint Garden, to Lynedoch EcoVillage, to Zeekoevlei…. incredible, isn’t it.
I love your concept. Thanks
Many, many thanks to you lovely people at Kurus! It’s been fascinating, challenging, amazing, stunning, funny, beautiful, demanding and all in all a very exciting experience to be part of a wonderful schoolteam, as well as having different opportunities to dive into the cultures of the wonderful South African people. Take care (of Kurus and Coffeebean Routes)
Lots of love Irene.
Thank you very much for this lovely time! I have improved my English so much! This is equally because I had the chance to dive so deeply in to the culture and because I had such qualified and motivated teachers! I had an incredibly wonderful housmum, actually just like a second family!
Now, it’s time to say goodbye, after such a long time…
Maybe I will have the opportunity to meet you all again somewhere in the world!
You never know…!
time was running…, no flying!
Thank you very much for the good teaching, the very special and interesting excursions.
I took part at the 50+ programme (11.-22.02.2013). It was a challenge and an experience for me. It wasn’t cheap but it is worth it! I hope for myself that I could further increase my memory/ vocabulary. The mix with very young students as well as the number have to be used very carefully.
Thanks and go on. Peter Knecht.
Dear Kurus Team,
Thank you for this fantastic time at this school. It was always funny, interesting and the teachers are so patient. It wasn’t like a school. It was like a big family every morning. The best experiences were the excursions. To met other people and her cultures was always exciting. A special thanks on my brother who enabled this unforgetable impressions for me. And Diana! She was always present and a great support if something was getting wrong Thanks a lot.
Da wir hier auf einer Sprachreise sind, verfassen wir diese Karte natürlich auf Englisch.
We would like to thank you for an amazing time in Cape Town. This experience has been wonderful and we will never forget the beautiful memories we have acquired. The organisation of this trip has been great and you have made many things possible that we would have never seen otherwise.
Thank you so much! Your Fejo-team from January 25th – Febuary 8th, 2013

The Language Excursions “Building Cities” are focused on different aspects of development. We started off by encountering Cape Town by foot, which enabled us to picture how the City looked like in the older days and how the Mother City has developed. On Wednesday we visited the Lynedoch ECOVillage in Stellenbosch, the first ecologically designed socially mixed intentional community in South Africa. And finally we learnt more about Cape Town’s public transport system; it’s struggles; it’s strengths; it’s past but also it’s potential for the future!
Hello my dears,
Thanks for the great time. I had a lot of fund and I learned so much! it was really a good input!! Haha I don`t want to say bye! It is a “see ya”. One day my kids will learn English here in this School! And maybe you will see me in the cinema in 10 years and than you can say: I thought her English! … Maybe.
I will miss you all. You`re all such great persons!!
See you soon!
Rock it! In Love Pia
Ps. in Hamburg we say Tschüss!
Vielen Dank für die Teilnahmebestätigung! Heute früh um 6 Uhr bin ich wieder zu Hause gelandet. und werde sie morgen weiterleiten. Du kannst Dir gar nicht vorstellen, wie dunkel es hier ist… das ist echt merkwürdig, und dabei war ich nur drei Wochen in SA. Nachdem ich mich heute Vormittag “für ein Stündchen” auf`s Ohr gelegt und dann fast den ganzen Tag verschlafen habe, habe ich bisher nur Dunkelheit und überhaupt nicht viel von Wiesbaden gesehen. Morgen werde ich mich dann mal wieder vor die Tür wagen – sicherheitshalber vielleicht mit Taschenlampe
Der Urlaub in Kapstadt war noch sehr schön !! … wobei ich das Reisen mit einem fantastischen Windsurfer nicht uneingeschränkt empfehlen kann.. . Jedenfalls ist die erste Woche bei Euch an der Schule mit dem Aufenthalt bei Colleen in Sea Point, den täglichen Fahrten im Minibus usw. etwas ganz Besonderes geblieben… unangetastet! War wirklich ein toller Einstieg!! Auch wenn wir in Sunset Beach, Minerton direkt am wunderschönen (sehr windigen!) Traumstrand mit tollem Tafelberg- und Stadtblick und Sonnenuntergängen bis zum Abwinken gewohnt haben, war die erste Woche mehr “mittendrin” und ich möchte diese Zeit auf keinen Fall missen!
Danke Kurus, danke Diana!!
Natürlich haben wir noch sehr viel Schönes gesehen: z.B. die Wine Lands, die Wale in Hermanus, Township Tour, Tafelberg und und und… ach!! War eine tolle Zeit und ich kann verstehen, dass Du geblieben bist!
Mit ganz vielen Grüssen aus Wiesbaden (mental noch nicht 100%ig hier angekommen…) Karin
Now that I `ve been at Kurus for two and a half months, I don`t know what I should write.
I`ve been left with so many impressions of Kurus and the people in it.
Firstly I would like to thank the school and the helpful teachers. Whenever I had question Maggie, Gavin and Amos had an answer for me. So my English improved very fast. If I had a problem with organizing anything, the Kurus team was there, or if I needed advice on what to do at the weekend Johannes and Diana the souls of the school always were willing to help.
Another big part of my educational holiday had been Iain and Michael from coffeebeans rotes. They invested a lot of energy and time to show me the real culture of South Africa. They introduced me to an authentic and non tourist tours of Cape Town which taught me the history of South Africa and the awful Apartheid times. They also introduced me to the Rastafarian and Reggae culture. I appreciate and now know how much enthusiasm and passion it takes to organise this unique discovery of South Africa.
Last but not least I must say thank you to all the people that have supported me in this time. I`ll miss Katja, Leire, Nadine, Graca, Alinie South, Alinie North, Isabella, Kevin and all the other students that I met.
A big big thanks goes out to Alan and Jason. I`ve never experienced such a friendly house, I`ve never met so many kind people.
To go home without you all is very hard step! But even thought today is the last day. I`ll do my best to come back soon. (It`s a promise and a threat
Thanks Stefan (SteMü) Müller
What a wonderful experience! Simone, Jan, Saskia
The time here in Cape Town was the best time of my “young” life! I don`t know how to say “Thank you”… But I promise: I`ll come back Thank you, Laura
