BUILDING CITIES

Currently a lot of building and renovation work is being undertaken in Cape Town. To begin with, we meet an organisation which is focused on the city’s improvement as well as its development. Taking a conducted tour through the city, we learn more about current and future changes.
The second Language Excursion this week provides us with an overview of Cape Town. Finally, we have a closer look at some of the challenges facing the city: We meet a politician who guides us through an informal settlement or residential area.
We meet the people living there and begin to understand why it can be so challenging to solve the residential and related social issues.
