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.

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 school: it has few students, so it is ideal for a good language learning, but not ideal to make friends and explore the city.

Other comments
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.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
i think that every student should stay within a host family inside the main house because he/she can't improve his/her language skills without practicing it, i used to stay with the host family but unfortunately my room was outside the house, so i didn't see them except for a few times.
