  • Our services are 100% free, and will allow you to book your language course without having to pay any extra agency fees. It is a contract between you and the school of your choice.
    Although you will be booking through an intermediary agency, all the documents we will send to you by email, such as the invoice for your course, are provided by the school you have chosen, so you do not need to present anything. You just need to show up on the first day of the course at the time indicated in the confirmation email you will receive from us and bring with you a document to prove your identity, that's all.

  • The minimum required age for junior group courses is 8-10 years at the majority of schools in Malta. The ACE English Malta school offers courses for children from three years of age, however availability depends on the number of registrations they receive. Therefore we always have to check availability with the school for the requested dates.
  • Yes, of course there are many schools that offer this type of programme, but bear in mind that it always takes place at certain times of the year (April-May, September-November) and with fixed dates. If you give us more information, we can send you a personalised quote and/or check availability for the period you are interested in.
  • We can certainly recommend in this case a Senior or 50+ programme, a programme designed especially for those who wish to study the language in a context with adult students of their own age group, and at the same time enjoy the beauty of the island through excursions, trips, activities organised by the schools and much more. The programme has fixed start dates and duration, but do not hesitate to contact us to check availability with our partner schools offering this opportunity!
  • It depends on the type of course chosen. The standard course has 20 lessons per week, while the intensive course has 30 lessons per week. Generally, lessons last between 45 and 55 minutes, depending on the school, and the lesson schedule will be communicated to you during your first day. Classes may be scheduled in the morning or afternoon. Keep in mind that the higher the number of lessons you choose, the more time you will spend in school!
  • Payment is divided into 2 parts: a prepayment (about 25% of the total) and the remaining amount. The prepayment is paid through our website. It is not an additional fee, but a part of the total. We recommend paying this amount as soon as possible to reserve yourself a place in the desired course. The remaining amount needs to be paid to the school's account and is usually required 2-4 weeks before the start of the course at the latest.
  • Yes, of course, unless expressly stated in the course description of the school you are interested in, it is always possible to book a single week's course, and perhaps even add a couple of private lessons to make the most of the days available.

  • Absolutely! Both the schools ELA Gzira and International House St Julians offer family programmes with adapted course for each member of the family.
    Antonio, Area Manager Italian from LanguageCourse.net - Aug 03, 2022
  • The best option for you would be a course designed for 50 + students. It is a programme which consists of all language aspects (reading, speaking, writing, grammar etc.) but it also allows you to study with people of similar age. It is a great way to learn the language and meet new friends!
    Gosia Mazur, Senior Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.net - Jul 07, 2022
  • Group lessons are always from Monday to Friday and can be booked for a minimum of 1 week. If you start on Tuesday or another day, the missed lessons will not be made up.

    In such cases, I always recommend private lessons, because it is possible to start on any day of the week, and then choose your timetable according to the teacher's availability.
    Antonio, Area Manager from LCN - Jun 10, 2022
  • ELA - English Language Academy in Gzira offers Evening General English courses. You can choose between 4 and 6 lessons per week and the minimum duration of this type of course is 4 weeks, but sometimes the school agrees to a shorter duration. Lessons take place between 18:00 and 19:30 and the course can start every Monday.

  • Regarding your question I can confirm that our prices are always lower because not only do we have specific agreements and targeted offers with most schools, but we also offer a 5% discount on the course price, which of course reduces the total cost. The prices that you see are provided directly by the schools, with most of which we have a more than ten year partnership, and the prices are in no way operated by us at LanguageCourse, so they are 100% reliable and furthermore in case of any error the schools are contractually obliged to honour the price entered on their page on our website, which is a further guarantee that we offer to the students who book through our Agency. Obviously with reference to the above I can confirm that our service is completely free of charge, and , as well as you will have always a dedicated support from the beginning to the end of the course.
