What we dislike about the school

  • Course books are an extra expense.

Location: St. Julians is a small resort town in Malta, 30 minutes by public transport from Valletta, the capital of the island. St. Julians has good transport connections to most main cities in Malta, making it a great base for travelling around during your stay. Within the city, there is plenty on offer including a number of bays to bask in the Mediterranean sun. Spinola Bay is the pivotal point of the city and Gateway School of English, a well established English language school, is a 12-minute walk from this vibrant location. The school is tucked away in a peaceful area of St. Julians but is only a small walk to reach the main road where there is a regular bus connection to all parts of the city.

Getting around: It is recommended to buy a 7-Day Explore Card, which allows you to jump on and off the bus as often as you want throughout Malta and Gozo, the next island along, for a week period.

Course selection: The school offers a number of interesting courses along with the standard language courses, in areas such as business, a wide selection of exam courses, teacher training courses, conversational English and plus courses such as sports, cultural activities and history.

School facilities: The classrooms come with all the latest equipment with interactive whiteboards and audio-visual facilities to deliver the digital course material in a spacious environment. This standard is reflected throughout the school with a well-stocked library and a self-study area with ultra-modern computer facilities.

Additional information: The staff at Gateway school of English are both qualified and experienced in teaching English as a second language and are all natives of the language.

What students liked about GSE - Gateway School of English, St. Julians
Age range for Young Learners. Good option for young kids who want to start English lessons to avoid classes with teenagers. Most schools offer wider age range which is not beneficial for younger kinds. Our son who was reluctant to start learning English was encouraged to speak and now he is eager to continue classes back at home.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: There was no kitchen/kitchen facilities in the residence besides a fridge so it was not easy to make a dinner. Canteen has very nice food! You have to go to the office and request the trips as they are quite often not well promoted. In the end they end up not happening because they don't have the minimum amount of people. Apart from that, language assessments should involve speaking too, as it caused some problems if they are good in grammar but they are not able to speak.
Other comments: Thank you, it was a nice 2 weeks with you:)
