English in Malta (EC)

Why study English in Malta?


Language programme in Malta

Malta is a spectacular island located in the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean and is the perfect place to study English all year round. Its Mediterranean climate, gorgeous bays and tranquil villages make it a haven of serenity. Malta also boasts of a rich cultural history, bars, shops and restaurants galore along with a buzzing nightlife.

English is one of the two official languages on the island, due to two centuries of being under British rule. Malta's most-read paper is the English-language Malta Times, and the Maltese even drive on the left. If you're looking for sea, sand and sun as well as top-notch English lessons, Malta is the place for you!

EC English Language Centres

Our partner school, EC, is located in the heart of St Julian's, a charming tourist resort built around a small bay just a short walk from the bus station. It's the perfect location to study English in a beautiful Mediterranean setting.

EC Teaching Methods

EC follows a 'Communicative Method' syllabus, which works to develop all four English language skills - reading, writing, speaking and listening. Special attention is paid to speaking, grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.

To give an engaging and relevant framework to learning these skills, each lesson will focus on a specific topic, which will vary from current affairs to everyday issues. Your professional and friendly teachers will select topics that create interest, discussion and debate in the class, allowing you to develop your confidence both in speaking and listening throughout your stay, in a friendly and encouraging atmosphere.

The teaching materials EC uses are specially designed by the school and realia such as newspapers, videos and other materials is also used.

As well as taking an active part in classroom discussions - the best way to improve your fluency - you will work on your language skills in small groups, pairs or individually on tasks and projects. EC's teachers work to create a welcoming environment with mutual support among students - so you'll feel at home while your English improves!
