Overall Experience
January 09, 2019 South African Adventure
My experience was very worthwhile. I learned a lot about the local culture and history. I also was able to make connections between the United States and South Africa. I learned a lot about different languages and the importance of learning as much as you can about other people. - Berea College View Entire Review

About

Cape Town is a microcosm of the challenges facing many African cities in transition – making it the perfect location to study sustainability, urban systems and community. During CIEE’s Global Sustainability and Environment program, local experts and CIEE’s expert staff will provide the tools you need to develop a deep understanding of sustainability in a local and global context, while working on real-world projects in Cape Town. This program is a life-changing learning experience. You’ll also experience South African culture by living with a host family for a weekend, going on trips and excursions throughout the country, and more.

Study abroad in Cape Town and you’ll:
- Spend three days with a host family in a former South African township
- Experience life in an EcoVillage
- Learn to speak Afrikaans or isiXhosa
- Attend local theater, music and dance productions, and sporting matches like rugby and soccer
