Insider tips about what future students should not miss
For new students who stay for a longer period, the school should organise a short meeting on the first day with students speaking the same language. Often, questions and problems can be articulated easier in the mother tongue. Especially for younger students and for longer stays.
Other comments
There should also be dictionaries in other languages, for example German-English etc.

My teacher, one of the best English teachers I have ever had.
Other comments
I would like to point out, as a negative note, the high percentage of German students, more than 50%. Sometimes it seemed we were in Germany rather than in South Africa.

Interlink is a small school, so you get to know the other students quickly and the lessons are personal. In addition, the location and the building in which the school is located are very nice.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
The school works together with an agency offering a variety of tours in and around Cape Town. This is absolutely worth it because you get to know other students quickly and the price-performance ratio matches.

The small number of students, therefore it's clearer, almost familial. Many activities with the classmates.
Other comments
As a senior I felt very comfortable with the mostly young students and I will recommend my friends this way of learning a language. I was lucky to learn with non-German-speaking students which is not always possible. The teachers and the really nice ladies from the back office converted my stay into a special event. My heartfelt thanks to the team of the school.

They should inform students about the cost of living in general in Cape Town. Social activities outside the classroom require a specific budget.

The school in itself is a little bit small, but for those who wants only to study English it's fine and also quite severe. The area where it is located it's excellent and the staff is very friendly.

What I liked most was the relaxed atmosphere between the pupils and teachers, so no stress. Whenever I had a problem, they helped me in a very calm and objective way. I can definitely recommend this school, and I plan to continue my studies there at the end of the year. I felt very comfortable there and learned a lot. A big thank you for that!

The school and also the classes are very small and you will find more attention of the teachers. On the other hand it is more difficult to find other students for leisure activities. The city is very interesting and I could find (in December) a lot of good places to go out, at every day of the week.

interlink is a small pretty school. i spent 6months in it and every day was different. the interlink teachers are efficient and you can speak easily with any of them. they aren't bored to spend times to explain the same thing again and again. they really take care of students and at first when you're quite lost, because of the language, it's wonderful. they don't hesitate to employ other teachers even if it's only for one student (they did it for me) and it's great because few schools would have done the same. i can't tell anything else or better! it was 6 wonderful months. and my english improved! the family are well choosen and it's very important to speak properly english almost in South Africa. to conclude : Cape Town is a wonderful city! thanks a lot to the interlink team :-)

The social activities were organized during the week, this is not good: we have paid to have lessons during the week. I think that the social activities should be organized during the weekend, to give the possibily to socialize out of school.
