4 reasons to take an English course in Johannesburg
Joburg is the largest city in South Africa and the sixth most populous city on the African continent. We have put together a list of 4 reasons why you should consider taking an English course in Johannesburg:
A city rich in history
While you are taking your English course in Johannesburg, take some time to learn more about the history of South Africa too. There are two places in the city where you can find out more about the country.
The Apartheid Museum has an exhibition that tells the whole history about the suffering of African people and Constitution Hill, is a former prison which you can visit and learn more. Why not visit and see up close, the sad history of the country, with its social, cultural and political injustices. It will make you see how far South Africa has come since difficult times.
Soweto, the largest township in Johannesburg
Soweto is the largest district in South Africa and is approximately 17 km from Johannesburg. It is home to around 4 million inhabitants. Soweto is one of the main symbols of the history of South Africa. You can visit the home of Nelson Mandela, where he lived until he was arrested and other famous spots like FNB Stadium, the largest stadium in Africa.
Go on a safari
Taking a safari in South Africa is almost a must-do. So enjoy the free time from your English course in Johannesburg and experience an amazing safari experience which can be by day or by night.
About 500 km from Johannesburg is Kruger Park, one of the most important on the African continent. The park has a massive variety of wild animals in their natural habitats, such as zebras, leopards, lions, elephants, rhinoceroses and many more.
Make sure you visit Maboneng, a major business district in Johannesburg.
The old industrial district was once considered very dangerous after the end of Apartheid in 1994. Today it is a very safe neighbourhood, full of restaurants, bars, cafes and beautiful graffiti on the walls of the buildings.
In this neighbourhood, you can also visit Arts on Main, a former 1911 warehouse that now houses galleries and boutiques. At the Arts on Main, Market on Main is also held every Sunday, one of the major events in the region. It is a fair of handcrafts and varied food and drinks at very affordable prices.
You can treat yourself to any of these experiences when you learn English at IH Johannesburg. The school is centrally located and offers a wide range of English language courses for adults, including Teacher Training, Exam preparation courses and University Pathway programmes.
