ESL Program Introduction

Our primary concern is to ensure that you are satisfied with the course chosen and that you get the maximum benefit from the selected programme. Our courses are structured to help you become more confident in English through the teaching of language systems (grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation) and the development of communicative language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing).

General English : The course covers the basic skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing, together with grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. The emphasis is on communication, which will enable the student to build up a rich vocabulary base, to improve communicative fluency and to develop confidence in the use of the language

Business English - This course is aimed at people who need to communicate effectively in English at work and covers those skills needed for making presentations, negotiating, writing letters, faxes, emails and reports, making and answering enquiries, telephoning and participating in meetings. At pre-intermediate levels this course is only offered as private tuition. Students at pre-intermediate to advanced levels may opt for either private or group tuition

Examination Courses :

TOEFL Examination - The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) evaluates the English proficiency of people whose native language is not English. Most people who take the TOEFL test are planning to study at colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. TOEFL is also used by institutions in other countries where English is the language of instruction. Students follow a group General English Course and have private tuition in TOEFL in order to gain the confidence needed to score well in the TOEFL examination.

Cambridge Examinations - These prestigious examinations are organised by UCLES, the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate or, as they are known all over the world, simply Cambridge. They are ideal for long-term students seeking to achieve near native competence in English. You are tested in all the four communicative language skills speaking, listening, reading and writing. The examinations offered in Malta are at four levels

IELTS Examination - IELTS (the International English Testing System) is jointly managed by Cambridge (UCLES), the British Council and IDP Education Australia. It is designed to test the language skills needed to study or work in the English language. The reading and writing skills can be tested in either academic English (ideal if you plan to go on to higher education) or in general training, which is suitable if you plan to work or train in English, or if you need IELTS for immigration purposes. IELTS is accepted by most Australian, Canadian, British and New Zealand academic institutions, and by an increasing number of United States academic institutions.

Many universities require an IELTS examination score of around Band 6 for entry to their degree courses, which corresponds to a Strong Upper Intermediate level.
