Composition of this StudyCapeTown – blog

And again one more blog ! Each company that pretends to be modern will be using this medium. SCT is going to capitalize on this trend as well , wants to communicate in a direct way with its costumer.  SCT wants to call attention to itself. SCT to find new costumers. There is no doubt about it !

But a second motive we don’t want to hide. This blog is Andre´s baby. The blog shall be the source of information for young people who intend to go to South Africa, e.g. as a student, a intern, a volunteer or for travelling. What is the reason that I am convinced that I can tell you anything that you find in many cases in the world wide web. To be honest, up to now I didn’t find that homepage with all that details. ( Please inform me just in case you fond that page ). Furthermore I think that due to my own experiences in southern Africa I am competent to provide this info. 2006 / 2007 I spent 16 months in this region as a language course student, as a intern or only as a tourist. In the last 3 years I spent 5 more months in South Africa. The country is amazing, the more you know about t the more you like it. Key words you find about this country everywhere are sun, apartheid, crime, safari and soccer world cup. But you definitely will find more. That is the purpose on my blog, to present the famous, but also the unknown aspects about Cape Town and South Africa and to advertise for the southern part of Africa. That’s my first blog, so pardon me for any poor design or other mistakes.

Please consider it as a publish domain. Everybody is invited to publish his experiences, his recommendation or other comments. How we transfer this in reality we will see.   

Readers I would like to ask for that :

  • Please submit your feedback about the design, the topics or others. What shall be improved, what can be considered as a good result ?
  • What do you think about the first articles ? What shall be added ? Which promising blogs do you know ?

 Thank you for your feedback !
