The school is located in Pembroke, a pleasant residential town with lots of green areas, close to St. Julian's and Paceville.

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.

Accommodation

Hotel

Staying in a hotel with other EC students is a great way for students to practice their English and experience an independent lifestyle. Students will stay at either The Windsor or Park Hotel situated in Sliema. Both are situated within walking distance of entertainment spots including restaurants, cafes, cinemas and shops. Students will be assigned one of the two hotels by EC staff; student preference will not be taken into consideration as both hotels offer similar amenities.

For added security and assistance, live-in EC supervisors stay a the hotels.

Travel time from Malta Intentional Airport: 40 minutes

Getting to school & activities

The best way to get to school is by public transport.

 You will need to purchase a bus pass upon arrival, which costs around €15 a week (subject to change). The bus journey is about 10 minutes from the accommodation to the learning centre in St Julian's.

We use a private bus service to take you to and from scheduled activities that are not held in venues within walking distance from the hotel.

Meals

Half board breakfast and dinner (Full board is also available and includes hot & packed lunches for extra fee).
