From Our students

Learning languages it’s the most important thing that we do to construct our future and English is the universal language and I’m learning because I want to study in a country that the languages are Mandarin and English. I came to Durban because it’s one of the best cities to learn languages.

Livau Nhangave

Student, Mozambique

I arrived in Durban three weeks ago, so I don’t have a definite opinion yet. The winter is much milder than the winter I know in France. The people are more friendly compare to French people. The road infrastructure is very good.

The lessons in DLC are very good. The atmosphere of the school also.

I find South Africa very interesting about this history. I think they are a lot of diversity. I meet black, white, coloured and Indian origin people in several weeks.


Student, France

I am studying in DLC, I am learning English. In DLC I have big opportunity to meet the people from different countries, for me, it is very important to my life.
I have made many new friends and I know beautiful places. I love Durban yhis is a good place, the people are very polite and the weather is awesome.


Student, Brasil

I have been in South Africa for a while now and I must say South Africa is beautiful, Durban to be specific. The people are friendly, and there is a lot that one can do here while studying or teaching.
