Discover the heart of the Mediteranean
Malta is made up of a group of islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino. The island of Gozo is home to the Ggantija temple, the world’s oldest freestanding structure. Because of its strategic location, Malta has been occupied by the Phoenicians, Arabs, Romans, the Knights of St. John, the French and the British, all of whom have left their mark on the islands. Malta became a British colony in 1814 and went on to achieve independence in 1964. Mediterranean culture is dominant in Malta, but 150 years of British rule left their mark. English is still an official language, the Maltese drive on the left side of the road and enjoy a nice English breakfast. The most popular daily newspaper is the Malta Times which is published in English. All of our teachers there are native speakers of English and qualified to teach it.
Malta has something for everyone: Mediterranean climate, crystal-clear waters, an abundance of history, pretty villages, colorful feasts and celebrations. Malta also offers wonderful cafes and restaurants, a lively nightlife, a wide range of shops and, of course, English classes.
Our partner school in Malta is a leading English language school with more than 8,000 students from many different nationalities attending each year - guaranteeing the ideal international language learning environment. In the absence of a recognised label such as the British Council in England, we have instead established a partnership with a FELTOM school, i.e. a member of the " Federation of English Language Teaching Organisations of Malta " and recognised by the Ministry of Education.
The school offers a vibrant year-round centre for adults (18+) in Sliema and a popular teenager programme (13 to 17 yrs) just 10 minutes away, close to Sliema Harbour. Located just 3 miles from the historical capital of Valletta and half an hour drive from the international airport, Sliema is a cosmopolitan seaside resort. The school is located close to the promenade, so why not join the locals as they enjoy the daily evening stroll around the bay to lively St Julian’s and its multitude of restaurants, bars, roadside cafes and discos!
This program has been popular among our students for several years and is designed to satisfy the needs of teenage students from all over the world. Participants must at least have one year of previous English classes at school before entering this course. The programme consists of not only English lessons, but afternoon and evening activities and excursions as well.
Participants follow a programme of 20 lessons of 45 minutes of English per week , Monday to Friday. Lesson plans aim to improve English language skills through conversation (role-plays, discussions, etc.), listening and reading exercises and some writing tasks. In groups for advanced students, the students are introduced into politics or other relevant topics. Participants will take a placement test upon arrival and will be place in their appropriate level, from beginner to advanced.
In the morning, students have classes from 9:00 AM until 12:30 PM in groups of up to 15. Courses start every Monday and Thursday and arrivals are every Saturday/Sunday and Wednesday before the start of each course. All students will be picked up at the airport when they arrive, and transportation for departure will be arranged as well.
Activities and Excursions
The activity programme includes four afternoon activities and one full-day excursion on Saturday to Mosta dome, Ta’Qali Crafts Village, Dingli Cliffs, the Temples and San Anton gardens in the morning and a beach visit in the afternoon. There are also five evening activities organised (such as a welcome party, a boat cruise to Comino Island with BBQ and music, open-air disco, karaoke and every Saturday a special party evening).

We offer two primary options for accommodation during this programme, host family and student residence .
- Host Family
Our carefully selected host families are all native English speakers who greet our students warmly and provide them with the best possible opportunity to practice their English in a real-world environment. Most of the host families live around Sliema/St.Julians/Swieqi; others are in the surrounding villages of San Gwann, Msida, Ta/Xbiex, Naxxar, Lija, Balzan and Attard. Most of the students can walk to school and some make use of the free transportation that school organises in the morning. Full board provided.
Alternatively, students can opt to stay in one of our residences. We cannot guarantee one residence in particular, but two people who book at the same time will always be able to room together in the same residence. A € 50 security deposit will be asked on arrival. The accommodation will be offered in 3- or 4-bedded rooms on full board with lunch being a packed lunch. All rooms air-conditioned and with private facilities. Residences are within short walking distance to school.
