Student Testimonial

Hello, my name is Renato Teixeira, and I’m student from EC Cape Town. I arrived in Cape Town in March of this year to study English.
Though, once I arrived at school I could only study for 2 days. After that the school administration suggested that I study online until the government gave them the permission to open the school again. It was supposed to take only 1 month until we got back to school but in this period of time the cases in the South Africa had been rising dramatically and I could understand why we couldn’t come to school.
Since that time, I was studying online for 6 or 7 months and now we’re back at school. We began on 26th October.
The school administration has been doing a great job to make us safe: you have sanitizer in every corner; the toilets are always clean; the classrooms are very organized and are cleaned before and after each class with the proper space between students. I can say that we have a great atmosphere inside of the class even if we have students for different levels together. We have been going well mainly because our teacher, Richard Hill, has been doing an amazing work. I feel that me and my schoolmates are learning a lot with him. So, I can say that is good to be back.
