Q&A - Questions and answers about Malta

  • Yes, some schools in Malta offer Erasmus+. For Erasmus+ normally a course with 20 lessons per week is needed as well as the OID number (= the Organization number). We can check for you with the corresponding school. The Mobility Agreement would be sent from your company and we can ask the school to complete and sign it.
    Tanja, LanguageCourse.Net - Mar 13, 2024
  • We do not have a filter to classify schools by size.
    However, you will find the information for each school in their description: when you look at the list of schools, it is right below the school name.
    Melanie Besnard, LanguageCourse.Net - Mar 07, 2024
  • In Malta from late autumn to early spring the average age of students is quite high, I am sure you will meet many peers.
    Of course, there will be mixed-age students in the groups as the schools organise the groups by language level.
    Gosia Mazur, LanguageCourse.Net - Jan 18, 2024
  • The climate in February and March is characterized by mild temperatures, intermittent rain showers and the fresh breeze from the sea. February is acceptable to discover nature, especially at the end of the month. In March you will have some nice beach days and even swimming opportunities. You can expect high temperatures of 15-25 degrees Celsius during the day.
    Sabine Krafack, LanguageCourse.Net - Jul 27, 2023
  • Insurance is not compulsory, but if you would like to buy it, you can of course do so.
    If the student has a European health card, this will suffice.
    Gosia Mazur, LanguageCourse.Net - Jun 08, 2023
  • Unfortunately, we can't do the Erasmus Plus Programme, because the student himself needs to pay the full amount to the school via the European Union fund so we cannot be involved as a party.
    Carlos Eduardo, LanguageCourse.net - May 24, 2023
  • Yes of course, most schools in Malta have the FELTOM certificate. You can find this directly on the schools' profiles under "Recognitions".
    Sabine Krafack, LanguageCourse.Net - May 18, 2023
  • Which course to choose depends on a number of factors, but above all on what your goals are.
    If you are looking to prepare for the FCE exam, it is best to book an FCE preparation course, but bear in mind that these courses usually have a fixed duration and specific start dates. General English courses, on the other hand, can start on any Monday of the year and you can book as many weeks as you like.
    Rubén De Haro, LanguageCourse.Net - May 03, 2023
  • Normally, C1 preparation courses have a set duration and a specific start date. If you tell us when you plan to travel to Malta, we can tell you what options are available for those dates.
    Rubén De Haro, LanguageCourse.Net - Apr 26, 2023
  • In order to process your booking, you need to pay the initial pre-payment, which corresponds to 30% of the total booking amount. In order to receive your visa letter, most schools require you to pay the full amount of your booking beforehand.
    Rubén De Haro, LanguageCourse.Net - Apr 19, 2023
  • The price of your course will depend on when you want to take the course (in summer it is usually more expensive, as it is high season), the type of course you choose (intensive courses are more expensive as they have a higher weekly course load) and the number of weeks you want to book (the more weeks you book from the beginning, the cheaper the price/week).
    Rubén De Haro, LanguageCourse.Net - Apr 17, 2023
  • At the moment our partner schools do not offer junior camps with sailing but International House in St Julians organises courses for juniors. Their packages include 2 activities daily ranging from kayaking, boat trips, bowling, karaoke nights and sightseeing tours. Access is granted to a private beach and hotel swimming pools.
    Gosia Mazur, LanguageCourse.Net - Apr 07, 2023
  • The shared flats and residences are for 18+ students. Students under 18 can indeed book a host family. Is that also an option for her?
    Robin Rebecca Pietersma, LanguageCourse.Net - Mar 29, 2023
  • ACE English and English Path offer afternoon courses in St Julians. In Pembroke you can book afternoon courses in the Atlas School of English.
    Gosia Mazur, LanguageCourse.Net - Mar 24, 2023
  • The Gateway School of English and English Path organise evening courses that start around 18:00. The am language studio school organises an evening course with lessons starting at 17:00.
    Gosia Mazur, LanguageCourse.Net - Mar 17, 2023
  • If you perfer studying and living in the teacher's home, you can choose " Learn English & Live with Teacher", this is a one to one class option.
    You should consult with the embassy for visa requirements and apply for the student visa yourself.
    Susan Wang, LanguageCourse.Net - Jan 30, 2023
  • Courses are taught in English only. School staff may come from different countries and we can enquire if any of the staff speak your language. However, this is not something that we can promise.
    Gosia Mazur, LanguageCourse.Net - Jan 13, 2023
  • Of course, we are happy to help you throughout the whole process, guaranteeing you the best price and our assistance completely free of charge. We are available via chat and on the phone Monday - Friday, and shall respond to your emails within 48 hours.
    Fraser Provan , LanguageCourse.Net - Dec 07, 2022
  • 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.
    Rubén De Haro, LanguageCourse.Net - Nov 29, 2022
  • In Malta, for example, International House and BELS are open between Christmas and New Year.
    Lisa S. Schiwy, Area Manager from Germany - Nov 04, 2022
  • Yes, the BELS in St. Paul's Bay also offers junior programmes during Easter and autumn holidays.
    Lisa S. Schiwy, Area Manager from Germany - Nov 04, 2022

FAQ about schools in Malta

  • For tennis + English lessons on Malta we have no group course, but we can offer an exclusive option with a programme called Study and Live in your teachers home.

    Study & live in your teacher's home is a very good option to learn a lot in a short period of time. Your daughter will be staying with the teacher and their family so she gets to practice the language all day long, even around the dinner table, since full board is included. You choose the number of hours you want her to have lessons per week and she sits down together with the teacher and has individual lessons. This gives her the possibility to focus specifically on her weaknesses and interests.

    The option tennis includes: generally 3 sessions per week of around 1 hour each, rental of equipment (if applicable) and supervised trips. The sessions can be group or individual, their number depends on your level, the sport chosen and the location of your family. The sessions take place with a professional instructor or sometimes, when appropriate, a family member. Supplements may apply for advanced levels.
    Louise Granath, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Mar 14, 2024
  • In Malta, we have several schools offering summer programmes for teenagers. These programmes are usually all-inclusive packages and are the perfect choice for kids who want to improve their English but also enjoy a fun-packed holiday. Whether travelling to Malta with the family or independently, the following programmes are designed to ensure safety, learning and fun!
    Veronica Romualdi, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Mar 04, 2024
  • There is only one examination centre for the IELTS exam in Malta, it is called The Malta Chamber and is located in Valletta.
    Gosia Mazur, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Nov 29, 2023
  • In Malta, it is customary to switch off electrical appliances when not in use to avoid short circuits and excessive energy consumption. This applies to all electrical appliances such as the oven/stove, air conditioning and the boiler. When the maid cleans the apartment after previous students, she will probably switch off all electrical appliances. So if the electrical appliances are not working - look for the switch with the red light. If the light is not on, the appliance is off and needs to be turned on. It is customary in Malta to turn on the water heater just before taking a shower (it takes about 30 minutes for the water to heat up). There is a special button next to the bathroom door or next to the light switch (often marked). The boiler is usually designed for 20-25 litres, which is enough for 1 person to take a shower in winter. The next person will have to wait about 30 minutes for the water to heat up. So if the hot water is not working, check that the red button is on.
    Maksym Sterpul, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Oct 02, 2023
  • They can! There are special parent + child programmes that allow a child to travel together with one or two parents. In this case, the parents can also study. Classes take place at the same time as the children's classes, and after school the children and parents can spend time together. If the parents have no desire to study, they can go simply as a chaperone, live with the child and relax while the child studies.

    Maksym Sterpul, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Jul 04, 2023
  • 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.
    Angela Ligartova, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Mar 17, 2023
  • Payment by card via our website is absolutely secure.
    You can check our reviews on TrustPilot or Google Maps.
    You can also read about the security of your payment by clicking on the "Trust & Security" tab on our website.
    Gosia Mazur, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Mar 17, 2023
  • 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.
    Antonio Zoppo, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Mar 13, 2023
  • 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!
    Antonio Zoppo, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Feb 28, 2023
  • 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!
    Cinzia Carli, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Dec 12, 2022
  • 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.
    Gosia Mazur, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Oct 31, 2022
  • 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
  • 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.
    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.
    Gosia Mazur, Senior Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.net - Apr 29, 2022
  • 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.
