St Martins College

The school provides a safe and comfortable environment which is highly conducive to English language learning.

St Martin's has a dedicated academic co-ordinator, and is fully air-conditioned, which is ideal during the hot summer months.

During peak times we also use EC Malta school and classrooms at Chiswick House, all with the same great facilities and supervision. During the first two weeks of this programme, lessons will be held at STC Higher Education, Pembroke.

English Course

General English – 20 lessons (15 hours) per week. The course will help improve English language skills by focusing on the key areas: speaking, listening, reading and writing. A strong focus is placed on speech and using the language confidently and fluently.

Lessons are engaging and designed especially for young learners. Teachers aim to satisfy any interest, with a focus on communication to boost students' confidence when using English in practical situations. Regular tests and conversation classes help to ensure that students improve their English as much as possible.

Our dedicated and professional teaching staff provide feedback and support and help students build confidence to speak English.
