About DLC

Durban Language Centre (DLC) was established in 2008. We caters for adult learners (18+) of English from South Africa and abroad. We offer top-quality General English classes at all levels, from Beginner to Advanced level. Our teachers are highly qualified, specialised language teachers.


We also offer specialised teacher training courses. These range from introductory courses for candidates with no teaching experience to advanced in-service training for qualified teachers who want to improve and diversify their skills. We also offer the prestigious Cambridge University CELTA and the DLC TEFL, and are the busiest language teacher training centre in South Africa.

About Our Teachers

Our teachers are all highly qualified, in particular they have a TEFL or Teaching English as a Foreign Language qualification from one of the major international teacher training centres, usually the Cambridge CELTA (Certificate in English Language Training to Adults).

We are fortunate to be able to provide trainers and assessors who are Qualified by Cambridge Examinations.

Language learning is fun, using effective teaching techniques and maintaining high standards of professionalism.


Course quality is maintained, and classes are monitored regularly to map learner progress by our advanced CELTA management system.

We feel it is important for our teachers to not simply guide students through a text book, but rather to create materials which will be relevant to students and the conversational situations they need to master.

For that reason, we try to encourage reading and writing practice be saved for homework, focusing more on communication, and language usage in class, a method which has been proven to work, and is recommended by our teacher training gurus.
