English School

EC Malta/St Martin's College/STC

Students will attend lessons at St. Martin’s College (with the exception of the first weeks of the programme when students will attend another EC Malta learning center). All our learning centres provide a safe and comfortable environment which is highly conducive to English language learning. Learning centres are fully air- conditioned and free Wi-Fi is available.

English Course

General English – 20 lessons (15 hours) per week. The course will help improve English language skills by focusing on the key areas: speaking, listening, reading and writing. A strong focus is placed on speech and using the language confidently and fluently.

Lessons are engaging and designed especially for young learners. Teachers aim to satisfy any interest, with a focus on communication to boost students' confidence when using English in practical situations. Regular tests and conversation classes help to ensure that students improve their English as much as possible.

Our dedicated and professional teaching staff provide feedback and support and help students build confidence to speak English.

Staying in a hotel with other EC students is a great way for students to practise their English and experience an independent lifestyle. Students will stay at a hotel located in Qawra or St. Paul's Bay, within walking distance of entertainment spots including restaurants, cafes and shops.

For added security and assistance, live-in EC supervisors will stay at the hotel.

Lunch

The options may include fresh salads, pizza, pasta, soup and more. Vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free options will be available every day.

Dinner

Water
Temperatures in Malta during summer are quite high and students therefore, need to drink plenty of water. Whilst water is provided during meals, students will be expected to buy bottled water at other times, during activities and school. It is important to take this into account when evaluating the amount of pocket money needed.
