We’re complex beings, living complex lives, and language is what brings us together. Language is a transformational space that has the power to change lives, inform policy and unite people.
At the Stellenbosch University Language Centre, we believe that improving communication isn’t just about increasing vocabulary or perfecting punctuation. It’s so much more. Being a language centre also makes us so much more than a language school. We are a vibrant hub for students, staff and clients who are looking for language and communication assistance. We work collaboratively with you on your language journey.
The Language Centre is home to experts in language learning and teaching, academic literacies and professional communication, translation, copy editing, interpreting and corporate communication. We also do language-related research, and we even have a team who specialise in plain language. All this just 30 minutes from Cape Town.

“Thank you for the enjoyable course. It was much more than expected and very informative. The course was designed in such a way that writing was made easy. I had a problem with tenses, and we covered everything from grammar, tenses, shortening sentences, clear writing etc. The feedback given after assignments were also very insightful. Thank you!”

“Ek dink dis ‘n jammerte dat ons so vroeg moes vertrek waardeur ek my Afrikaanse taalavontuur nie heeltemal kon volbring nie. Deur jou aanlyn lesse en die interessante en blikverruimende assesserings het ek op ‘n afstand egter altyd gevoel asof ek my avontuur voort kon sit. So dankie vir jou moeite om ook aanlyn die kursus baie interessant te maak.”
[What a pity I could not complete my Afrikaans language adventure in person. But through your online lectures and interesting and expansive assessments I felt that I was able to continue my adventure even from a distance. Thank you so much for making the course so interesting, even when it was presented online.]
