WHAT MAKES OUR SCHOOL DIFFERENT?

Giving students over 50 years of quality education to communicate internationally! 

A University Foundation with more than 50 years' experience:
  • When our school was founded in 1963, it laid down the  first milestone in English language teaching in Malta to international non-native speakers. This is a unique achievement we will always be proud of!
  • Our mission is to actively engage each student in a meaningful English Language  learning experience through personal interaction with highly qualified and experienced teachers in a congenial school environment complemented by exploiting Malta’s incredible cultural and fascinating wealth for lifelong learning outcomes
  • We dedicate ourselves to give our students personal attention and high academic  achievement levels combined with pulsating cultural and social activities and 24/7 emergency support service
Small classrooms don't come at a premium:
Student numbers in our classrooms are naturally small. This comes at no 
additional charge! With an average of 6 for Intensive General English, 
4 for Business English and 2 for Professional English, you receive more 
personalised and individual attention from your teacher than you do at 
any other school. That’s an average of 2.5 to 7.5 hours of personal time 
with the teacher when following 20 lessons per week. And additionally we 
guarantee no more than 8, 6 and 4 learners in class respectively!

Malta's first boutique English school:
This combination of longstanding high quality teaching characteristics
and personalised educational attention is what makes our school Malta’s first Boutique School. ‘Boutique’ not only because we are independent and flexible, but because we are inspired by  a continuous dedication to motivate and support our discerning learners to attain the highest linguistic goals possible during their language stay with us in Malta.

We don’t just say it. Others prove it for us. We are recognized  internationally and accredited to EAQUALS, recognised by Cambridge ESOL as Malta’s first CELTA International Teacher Training and English Language assessment Institution, founders of ALTO, ELTC and FELTOM to whom we are also accredited, full members of WYSETC, ISTC, SATA, ISIC, HI, we hold IATA status and are ISO9001 certified.

CULTURE, SPORTS, SIGHTSEEING

SETTING THE  SCENE: MALTA
Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, the island of Malta is the
European Union’s idyllic destination to visit. This is not only due to its long
days of bright sunshine, crystal clear blue seas and profound historical
and cultural heritage, but also because the island’s warm hospitality and
incredibly friendly people offer a tranquil and relaxing setting.
Moreover, the British lived here for over 160 years. They gave us their
language and a British system of education. We turned English into one of
Malta’s official languages and attractions.
Malta is a great place to receive an intercultural education and to practice
English both inside and outside the classroom!
