Port Elizabeth, widely known as the friendly city, is located on the warm Indian Ocean and offers easy access to Cape Town (via the Garden Route) and Johannesburg by car. The modern national airport is easy to get to and you can fly to other South African cities in 1 to 2hours. The cost of living is relatively low, sometimes 20 to 40 percent lower than the German cost of living – especially if you choose to eat in local restaurants. Enjoy your language holiday at bli and take the courses you need to study, your job or your pilot’s licence.
We are accredited for Bildungsurlaub by several German federal states. Combine your English course with golfing, surfing, diving, volunteering, safaris, sport and more – just a two-minute walk away from the beach. Cafes, supermarkets and shops, the post office and banks are just around the corner. Bay Language Institute – bli – is a friendly language school because ultimately your language trip is supposed to be a holiday too. We have created the ideal environment for English students who are looking for a different experience. Apart from English, courses in Portuguese, Spanish, German and isiXhosa are also available. We look forward to welcoming you to South Africa.
