Find out what’s happening in our school!
As the old saying goes the proof is in the pudding. (if you’re not sure what it means check with your teacher). Time multiplied by effort, add some desire and you’ve got the basic ingredients for success. Success that many of our students has achieved. At E.C. the teachers put the students first and that doesn’t mean we do it for you; nothing of any worth is ever easy to gain, sometimes it’s an uphill struggle and we will give you the tools to climb your mountains, and when you get to the top you can enjoy your ‘’pudding’’. Below is an example of a recent comment and results from E.C. Malta’s TOEFL class.
Dear Simon, Dear Francis,
I hope you are fine. Being back in Germany was quite strange. I think I miss the construction work in Malta and a little bit the beach.
I promised to inform you about my TOEFL-Score.
My Score is 103 points, Reading 25, Listening 28, Speaking 23, Writing 27. I was very surprised, but happy, too, because I had a bad start in the speaking section (my problem from the start: meat and potatoes, time and my nerves)
So I want to say thank you for your good support and teaching. I think it was very helpful for me to do the course with you to get into the task. Personally, I should have practice the speaking questions more.
Nevertheless it was an impressive time for me and I learned a lot, not only how to prepare myself to the TOEFL, but how to organise myself in a better way. You remind me to some important things in life, which I had forgot, put aside or have not realised before. Thank you Francis.
The good and regular practice in reading, listening and writing and the fact, that you recognize and work on our grammar problems, helped me a lot. It was a good experience to talk with you about Malta and general issues. Thank you Simon.
Maybe we will meet again and I book a another course at EC.
All the best
‘How to write right’
Student: Thomas Habl – Germany
Writing task: A report
To: Education authorities in Malta
From: Thomas Habl
Subject: Recommendation Malta IEC as a language holiday destination
Date : 7th May 2010
Purpose: The purpose of this report is to recommend Malta EC School as a perfect language school for foreign students.
Facilities: In EC School there are many facilities e.g. Internet café, café chat, free lessons, welcome dinner. In the Internet café, there are more than 30 computers with free Internet. You can also take your own notebook with you and join WIFI. Unfortunately, the Internet is very often cut off but I think that is a general problem in Malta. In my opinion, the café chat is very recommendable because you have the opportunity to talk to many different people from foreign countries. I am convinced that the free lessons like “how to write right” are en excellent opportunity to improve English skills. Another interesting point to improve the English skills is the welcome dinner on the first day of school. There you can enjoy a 3 course-meal in the ambiance of a traditional Maltese farmhouse and you can talk to many other students. All students have also the chance to borrow books from the library of the school. So you can read a book in your free time for example.
Activities: There are also many activities, like parties, welcome dinner or excursions to Gozo. Every week there are many parties in different bars and discos e.g. Footloose or Hugo’s where you can meet a lot of students from different countries. So you are automatically forced to speak English with the other students. The students have also a great chance to improve their language skills by visiting different excursions like Gozo or Blue Grotto.
Staff: The staff at EC School is very friendly and helpful. The lessons make the students happy because the lessons are totally different compared with the former school lessons in my home country. EC School is also very well organized.
Conclusion: In view of the above mentioned facts, I feel that Malta EC School can be recommended as an ideal place to study English.
