Come and learn English under the sun in one of Malta’s best English language schools!

For adults aged 18 and over.

Our partner school in Malta is a small, family run school that proudly prefers quality over quantity, concentrating on keeping small class sizes so that they can guarantee that each and every one of their students will profit from individual attention from the teacher.

The family who own this school have dedicated themselves to the running of the school 24/7 since the day of its inception - having carefully chosen the location (from an initial shortlesit of 10!) and designed the floor plan and layout of the schools themselves, they supervised the construction of the school building, developed the courses and hired the teachers. Today the entire family is responsible for the the day-to-day running of the school.

The carefully chosen location is in a quiet and distinguished residential neighbourhood that’s also just a 10-15 minute walk from the lively areas of St. Julian’s and Spinola Bay, home to seaside bars, restaurants, hotels and much, much more!

The school is built over two floors, houses 8 classrooms, common areas and plenty of outdoor space for relaxation - all of which were designed to facilitate learning in the most optimal way possible. The school residence also sits adjacent to the school, providing modern and comfortable accommodation for those who wish to get from the bedroom to the classroom in minutes!

Beginner in English?
No problem! This school accepts students from beginner to advanced levels.

About this course:
This course provides students with the quickest route to communicative competence in English and is organised around the professional tasks and work-related situations of busy executives wishing to improve their English language competency for business related activities. Practical assignments will draw on the varied interests of the clients themselves and lessons will respect the sophisticated knowledge and expertise of the students, especially in areas such as leadership, innovation and human relationship. The key concepts of the course include topic-based situations that help to reinforce vocabulary, speaking, writing and social English. Our aim is to offer a flexible approach to the basic interaction patterns used by business people in their work. Topic-based learning units will cover a wide range of business situations, such as using good commercial English in collecting information, drafting reports and preparing presentations, managing a job interview, writing business letters and e-mails, telephone conversations, decision making and problem solving. We use a variety of Business English books such as the New Business Matters, The Business Macmillan Series, English 365, Company to Company, New International Business English, English for Business Studies, Further Ahead, Getting Ahead, Market Leader and other books for specific and specialised areas of Business English such as the Oxford Handbook for Commercial Correspondence, E-mail English and Presentations in English to name a few. On your first day at school, you will have a language placement test to enable us to decide which level of the Business English classes is best for you.

*Homestay
Do you want to profit from your English language stay as much as possible and practice English outside of the classroom? Then the homestay option is for you as you'll live with and become a part of an English speaking Maltese family!

Our partner school don't just inspect the families that host their students - they actually know them all personally, meaning they can find a family that best suits each student. All host families are also authorised by the Maltese Tourism Authority. 

The homestay option is ideal for those who want to:

  • Experience the Maltese way of life and live with a family in a typical Maltese home
  • Get the full benefit of total language immersion in a house where all members are native speakers of English
  • Live not further than 5 to 15 minutes away from the school on foot
  • Live in a smaller family setting with fewer people in the house as opposed to a residence/hotel

We can also organise hotel or self-catering apartment accommodation with the help of our partner's local knowledge and expertise. Contact us directly for more information.

*NOTE: Students booking accommodation for 24+ weeks are not required to pay high season prices.
